So yeah, today I went out and bought my first set of BOY clothes. So gosh darn cute. My sister in law gave me a coupon for Carters (spent $25 and get $10 off) so when I got there I was just expecting to buy one outfit, usually at Carters that is all you can get for $25. Well, I was shocked when I got there and they had ALL of the baby clothes marked down to 50-70% off. Even the new stuff that they just got in stock was marked down. It was great I got some really cute stuff all for only $30, here is some of it...

IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!!!

So yep, its a boy! I was SHOCKED!!!!!!!! In case you couldn't figure it out, what your looking at is the baby's butt (like he is sitting on a toilet seat) the long thing to the left and right are his legs and the little thing in the middle is his penis. He was all about showing it off this morning. The tech said "wow he's got a big penis" HAHAHA. I knew Mike would be happy about that. She then started trying to measure other stuff on his body and he kept moving his leg to show off his new penis some more. She started laughing and said "wow, he is proud of that thing" I personally think he was just sick of me calling him Greysen and wanted us to KNOW he was a London.

The next picture is just another head shot. That picture that I took of it is not very good, on the real one you can see the nose and little lips. The dots above its face are him holding his hands in the air, probably throwing Mike some more gang signs HAHAHA!. It's crazy how much HE has grown in the last 3 weeks. Before it looked like he had plenty of room in there but today he looked cramped. He was measuring big for his age and everything, so maybe he is going to be a tall little boy after all!

Prenatal Test Results!

So we got the first set of prenatal screening results back a few days ago. Everything looks great and the good news is our baby doesn't have a fat neck HAHAHA!! Wait, let me explain. Here is a brief explanation of the test they did...
What is the nuchal translucency screening test?

This prenatal test (also called the NT or nuchal fold scan) can help your healthcare practitioner assess your baby's risk of having Down syndrome (DS) and some other chromosomal abnormalities as well as major congenital heart problems.
The NT test uses ultrasound to measure the clear (translucent) space in the tissue at the back of your developing baby's neck. Babies with abnormalities tend to accumulate more fluid at the back of their neck during the first trimester, causing this clear space to be larger than average.
The NT scan must be done when you're between 11 and 14 weeks pregnant. It's usually offered along with a blood test in what's known as first-trimester combined screening.

So we got the results and everything looked great. Our risk of Downs Syndrome actually went down to a 1 in 10,000 chance. I can definitely live with those odds!

So for those of you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to find out the baby's sex (Ehhhemmm, WILMA!! HAHAHA) I will be having an ultrasound on Sept 15th, HOPEFULLY they will be able to tell me then. If they can't tell then, I will have a 4-d ultrasound on Sept 26th to tell us EXACTLY whether this little one is a Greysen Elizabeth or a London Michael!

12 weeks

Hummmm, Things are pretty boring around here right now. Soooooooo, I got a little crazy the other day and bought a Fetal Doppler (so I can hear the baby's heart beat any time I want)!! It wasn't very expensive, just $100. I'm just such a nervous nelly these days. I am now 12 weeks but really don't think I will be able to relax until closer to 20 weeks. So I figured the doppler would help me relax a little, you know until that one random night where the baby is hiding and I can't find the heartbeat. Then all of you will have to talk me off the ledge. HAHAHA. Don't say I didn't warn you ladies! Anyway, I got the doppler in the mail yesterday and IMMEDIATELY tried using it. It took about 5 mins but I eventually found the baby's heart beat. It was so nice to hear it again. It really just helped me relax. After all these miscarriages, a little reassurance goes a LONG WAY.

Mike leaves soon for a short 6 week deployment, don't ask why they need him overseas for 6 weeks, but I guess they do!!! Hey, at least it's a SHORT trip, I can't complain!

Oh and here is the ultrasound picture from our last visit at 11 weeks and 1 day.
