BOY!!!! I figured I'd get that out of the way! It was actually the first thing that we saw. The tech turned on the machine just as she was asking if we wanted to know the sex, and there it was!!! His name will be (is) Jackson Wyatt.
I was so nervous sitting in the waiting room, and freezing! They had the ac way to high. When we got called, I felt like I recognized the tech, but I wasn't sure. A few minutes in I asked her if she worked at the hospital and she said yes. I'd seen her there a few times. Once before I started IVF for some initial tests my OB/GYN was doing and once when I over stimmed with in the very beginning with Wyatt. Before I even knew I was pregnant. Anyway, she is really nice and easy going. I cannot stand getting an ultrasound from someone who is unhappy. You have to keep looking at them and trying to guess if they're seeing something bad! I told her all about Wyatt and what had happened. She talked to us the whole time and every time she'd measure something, she'd tell us that it looked great. She even did some 3D/4D pictures for us that were adorable. I usually find them kinda creepy, but I guess when it's your baby, somehow they look cute.
The Peri, Dr. H, came in to consult with us and take a look himself. He was great. We went over my whole history and he seemed to think that everything seemed to be being handled properly. He is going to see me for ultrasounds every month to monitor Jackson's growth. He thinks this is the best way to make sure everything is going well. Right after this I went straight to my OB appointment across town, and Dr. H had already requested my records as well as sent over a recommendation that they put me on thyroid meds. I have Hoshimoto disease, and I've been on meds for it before, but I've been able to go years without having to take anything. My #'s are never perfect, but they tend to be in an ok range. I'll take whatever I need to to keep Jackson safe! I'll do an update tomorrow with weight, etc.
On another note....I can't wait to start his nursery! Oh and ultrasound pics to come tomorrow!!!!
