Working on that better day

Well, Dean did indeed wake up dry! Early and thirsty, but dry. Still not much of an appetite, but I'm not going to force it since so many of you said it's pretty normal. He only ate 1 peach slice for breakfast, 1 cracker for snack (and drank a little of my Isagenix shake), and an applesauce cup for lunch. He refused the other foods offered (as well as his milk for nap, but he went down anyway without a peep), but I guess he'll be fine in the end. I guess I'm just super worried about ending up with an uber picky kid. Lets just cross our fingers this is just a phase, right?

He was the perfect little angel at the doctor's office. I had my 13 week ultrasound to check for chromosomal abnormalities. It was my second ultrasound since I had one at 6 weeks to make sure everything was ok with me fainting. This was much funner, though, because it really did look like a baby instead of a throbbing blob. The baby was asleep or very lethargic when we were doing it, so I had to cough a couple times to get it to shift to the right position. Everything looked fine and her best guess (they can only be up to 80% sure at this point) on the sex of the baby is male. Before she said anything I looked at the screen and thought, "I really think it's a boy." We don't really have a preference, though it would have been fun to add a girl to the cousin pool on Matt's side. All boys so far. Cheaper this way, though, since we already have boy stuff.

They can already tell!!! That is just CRAZY...I know it is just 80% but still...

About Dean's eating, Sarah and Becca went through this exact thing. I think when they are hungry enough they will eat. Just keep offering and he will eventually get it.

Phew!

I know it's totally unChristian of me, but I secretly hope that we'll have the first girl.

Yay for another boy! Congrats, I didn't know they could tell at 13 weeks, even 80% chance, that is amazing!

Boys are a whole lot easier in my opinion!! But girls are fun to dress up!! and if you don't have a preferance than you win either way!! glad everything is going good!
