First Trip to the Dentist

A week or two ago I took Jude to the dentist for the first time.  I know, I know, he should have gone a long time ago, not for the first time at 4.  But, it was a good experience!  He was so scared to go, poor thing.  Mostly because he didn't know what to expect and partly I think because he got shots last time he was at the doctor.  I'm happy to say he had no cavities and got a perfect check up, everything looking good!  He sat so still and was so well behaved, even through X-rays, a cleaning, and a fluoride treatment.  And in the end he got a cool tooth brush.

In pregnancy news, S is still feeling a bit bad with morning sickness, though it does seem to be getting a bit better.  She has burst of energy and feeling normal now and again.  And I don't think she has thrown up in several days now, yay!  She seems to be feeling the baby kick and move a lot and I can't wait till Jude and I can feel it too!

We Found Out! We're Having A....

Boy!!  Yesterday we decided to go get a gender reveal ultrasound done, mostly because I couldn't take not knowing anymore!  S was 15 weeks yesterday so we thought we'd give it a try.  And lucky for us baby was in a good position!  He was so cute, already sucking his little thumb!  We took Jude with us along with S's mom.  Jude is excited to have a brother,nits what he wanted.  And we are excited to join the two moms two boys club!  So we are happy to introduce baby Noah!

13 Weeks!

So the genetic test came back with nothing again.  Annoying.  But we aren't going to do it 4 times, so that's that.  We are going to instead get an ultrasound done in about two weeks at week 15 to try to see boy or girl then.  Fingers crossed they can tell!

12 Weeks!

Waiting, waiting, waiting for our genetic testing to come back.  S got blood pulled a few weeks ago for the test and a week later got a call saying, "well first off you are having a..........LONG PAUSE.......oh.....the test didn't work."  What!?  Who does that to a pregnant woman!  Basically the test has come back inconclusive twice now, meaning they didn't have enough fetal DNA I'm the sample to do the test. So S got blood pulled again and we are now waiting for the results from the third try.  
 In the meantime they had us come in to check on the baby to make sure everything was ok because of the whole test thing.  The first time we came in all they did was the Doppler to check the heartbeat and while we were there they mentioned that since the genetic testing was being a pain that we could also do the regular first check testing where they do an ultrasound and take drops of your blood.  Sure, why not, so we went in and did that a day later.  Results are already back from that and everything is fine with our little one.  And it was fun getting a bonus ultrasound!  Here are some pics from it
First a whole baby shot.  Baby is still measuring 4 days ahead, yay!

  In other news S has been feeling a bit better.  She isn't throwing up all that much this last week and the nausea seems to come and go a bit instead of being constant.  She is tired still and starting to get a bump!  Though she has been joking that it is an organ bump because at the ultrasound they were looking at the baby a bit below where the bump is, thus the bump is where her organs are being pushed up.  Oh and she has started feeling the baby move!  Not all the time, just when she is sitting or laying in certain positions.  Really cool.  Here she is with her "organ bump"

Last bit of news, S won a trip to France for the two of us through work!  We are going in June and so very excited!!  Such perfect timing as she will be pregnant enough to be feeling pretty good but not too pregnant that she can't travel.  Yay!
