 20 week ultrasound today...




IT"S A GIRL!

flu shot

I went and got a flu shot today at lunchtime; never had one before.  Everything I read says it's more recommended for pregnant women.  Side effects if any are supposed to be mild and last only a couple of days.  I feel a lil less than swell now; think I'll go to bed early, for real.  Anyone else get a flu shot?

swollen gums?

I know bleeding to death when you brush your teeth is normal right now, but I've been waking up with the gums behind my front teeth swollen. It could also be because I clench my jaw in my sleep and my bottom teeth are up against the gums all night, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

That was a run on sentence. 
Ha.

Thanks ladies. 

It's a boy!

Our ultrasound went just fine. I told the tech I wanted to see the goods and guess for myself. Of course the very second she put the wand on my belly there they were.. I immediately knew it was a boy. She didn't confirm since he moved away really fast--which he did the WHOLE time--but after getting some measurements we peeked again and it was very obvious he is a he. :)

I measured 3 days ahead (which doesnt matter, I know the exact DAY i got pregnant) and he's estimated at 13 ounces!
