Happy Birthday and a Baby Boy!

Happy Birthday Mom!!

Mom I love you so much and hope you have a fabulous birthday. You are so supportive and wonderful and I am so glad you are mine. I can't imagine my life with out you. You've taught me so much and are truly one of my very best friends. Happy, Happy Birthday!!

In other news, and for those of you who haven't already heard from my sister's blog which is much more impressive and more frequently visited than mine....I'm having a boy!!! Ryan and I are so happy he's healthy and growing. I'll admit, I'm a little thrown off because my mom and sister convinced me it was going to be a girl, but I'm thrilled non the less. Ryan is super excited. I've got to get to work, but I'll try and upload some of our first pictures of the little guy when I have more time.

P.S. I'm 20 weeks today! Half way there!

Biggest Disappointment Ever

I understand that everyone is human and makes mistakes. But telling your pregnancy obsessed, high-risk patient she'll be finding out the gender of her baby and have an extensive ultra-sound at her next appointment and then not doing it is one mistake that is not acceptable! That's exactly what happened today. Ryan skipped important school lectures so we could go to the appointment that we've been counting down to all month only to wait an hour to have a five minute appointment listening to the heartbeat. Although I am ecstatic that there is still a heartbeat, I am heart broken that we didn't have the appointment I was promised.

My doctor apologized for "misleading us to think this was that appointment because it is most definitely the next appointment at 20 weeks." With Ryan as my witness, she did not mislead, she misspoke. I even questioned her about it afterward because 17 weeks seemed too early to find out the gender, but she reassured me it was today's appointment.

So it looks like I have another month of waiting before I get a picture and a gender.

Prom, Pregnant and Back to Blonde

Yesterday was so much fun!! My friend Robin got married, and then our 3rd annual Medical school Prom was last night. The wedding was beautiful and the Prom was a blast. Good times in Charlottesville!!


So I'm 17 weeks pregnant now and am so excited!!!! Things seem to be going well this time and I couldn't be happier about it. Tomorrow I find out the gender so stay tuned to find out. My mom and Wendy are convinced it's a girl. I'll be happy with either. Less than 24 hours to go.
