13 Week Appointment

Today we had our 13 week appointment which was bitter sweet. I was crossing my fingers that there was a chance to find out if Baby Thomas was a girl or a boy. Well, Baby Thomas did not want to open it's legs today. The practitioner tried shaking my stomach to pounding on my stomach to get it to uncross it's legs. I am DEFINATELY learning patience since my next sonogram is not for 7 MORE WEEKS! But the sweetest thing of all was seeing Baby Thomas grow. Dave was watching in silence as he always does. :) I was oooohing and awwwwing at what we saw. I thought it would look like an alien and I was wrong. It totally looked like a baby. I kept seeing it bob up and down and I asked the practitioner what the baby was doing and she said, LOOK AT THIS! IT'S SUCKING IT'S THUMB! That was the best part! They did a test for down syndrome and everything was normal. In 3 weeks I will have a blood test for spinabifida and 4 weeks after that will be the next sonogram to see the gender. :) Thanks for sharing our journey. We'll keep you posted.
