On track...

This week, in the lead up to the "big" ultrasound (aka the anatomy scan), was a bit rough on the anxiety scale. I was thrown over the edge yesterday when the Hubby found out that he would not be able to join me. Ugh!

All said and done, the scan went very well with the exception of the Speck not changing positions to get a perfect view of the heart. The tech assured me things look fine, they just need measurements from a different angle to be 100% sure.

And there was very little doubt that this baby is most definitely a boy! More than once he was flaunting his much so that the tech couldn't help but chuckle.

It is such a huge relief to know that everything is looking good (baby is on track and cervix still crazy long) especially with the hormone induced emotions coupled with the anxiety of being a Babyloss Mama. I know this sense of relief will only last a short time, but it is so much better than the alternative.

I am a mother of three boys! Fingers crossed that this one gets to come home to live with us!


  1. Oh, Jessica, I'm delighted that you're having another boy and I'm so glad to hear the scan went well. I know ALL about the anxiety leading up to that scan--I was a wreck for about a week ahead of time. And I'm sorry your husband couldn't be there. BUT so happy that everything is looking good, and I hope that the next scans will continue to bring good news and as much peace of mind as possible.

  2. Great news all around. So happy you are expecting a little brother for your boys! Congrats!

  3. Yay, Jessica!! Hugs to you as always...

  4. I'm thrilled to read all is going well. And three boys! :)
