Monday, Monday

So my finger's not broken. I still can't completely bend it but the swelling's gone down & the bruise isn't very noticeable.

Also, my ultrasound confirmed that my dates were correct. With Callie it turned out I was a whole month further along than we thought, so I couldn't help but hope. Really they were checking dates because one of my screening tests came back positive - for Downs. So an inaccurate date could have been the cause, but it wasn't. But we're not worried - the ultrasound didn't show any markers & I feel at peace, so I think everything will be fine, whether our baby has a problem or not. And I know there are lots of false positives. Also the tech didn't check for the sex, so still a surprise. I have another ultrasound in 3 weeks, but I still think I won't want to find out. I really don't care whether it's a boy or a girl - I have no preference. I mean, girls are SO fun to dress, but little drama queens too! Jack is a terror right now, but that's the age. He's still a sweet little guy. Anyway, here's #3! Not too exciting for most of you.
This is I think the first profile ultrasound picture I've had w/any of the kids so far! With Callie & Jack I had tons of Skeletor looking ones. Not so cute. Oh, one awesome thing about Friday was that I felt the baby move for the first time! Much sooner than with the other two! It's always cool to feel the baby for the first time.

Well my mom & sister are on their way over with leftover Moo Goo Gai Pan - my fav! If you're not hip to it, it's a Chinese stir fry. Better than any stir fry I've ever made! I highly recommend it!

6 talk to me:

Wait, I don't get that post.What are markers?

I'm jealous of the moo goo. mmm...i had a fruit bar...

Markers are indicators. Babies with Downs will often have certain indicators in their diaphram & heart, neural stem, hands, & feet. Our baby didn't have any.

I am glad your finger isn't broken. I love feeling the babies move inside, it is like as soon as you feel them you can love them so much more because you know they are real. Maybe I am weird, but that is the way I feel. The baby has a cute profile. Good luck not finding out.

Hey, Hill.
Was it the triple screen that came back positive for Down's? We went through the exact same thing with Jacob. They didn't explain the test at all, then a few days later the nurse called Leigh Ann and said, "I'm sorry, but it looks like your baby has Down's." Horrible. We waited a whole month to finally be told by a genetics counselor that there are many false positives, and that we had gone from a .1% chance to .3% chance of our child having Down's. The targeted ultrasound proved he didn't. It was a horrible month, though. We decided we would rather not take the test again.

oh, i am glad you don't have a broken finger! and i hope you find out what you are having, but it totally makes sense to have a surprise when you already have 1 of each. and your kids are so darn gorgeous anyways, so i am sure #3 will be amazing!

We missed you last night! Next time, you'll have to come up with Chelsea and craft - now that I'm your "blog stalker", too, we have to meet! Plus, I just know our kids would have too much fun.

When are you due? I think we're right around the same time. :)

Great blog - I'm going to have to do some serious catching-up.
