Bee's brother!


Here are some pictures of my uterus. I still think it's weird that we share pictures of our female parts, only when we are pregnant! :)
We had an ultrasound on Thursday. I measured exactly right...15 weeks. That makes my due date March 22, 2010 for sure.
We thought with the ultrasound from Alaska, that there could have been twins. But that's not the case...there is one healthy boy in my tummy.
We are so very excited about our little boy. I get to pick the first name this time. I have a few favorites but I'm not yet for sure. I might pull a Melissa and keep it a secret until the baby is born.
Chris is already planning hunts and fishing trips for when the boys are old enough.
I'm going to have to be induced with this baby too. They want to have platelets and blood ready for us. The chances that this baby will have low platelets like Bee did, is quite a bit higher. We will probably spend some time in the NICU. (Newborn Intensive Care Unit) I'm kinda bummed about this BUT I would rather have a healthy baby! Besides I have 25 weeks to be okay with it.

Oh, so exciting!! I loved having the ultrasounds when I was pregnant. Congratulations!

I am loving conference weekend as well. We actually are in Utah for it and are enjoying real fall weather.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

I'm stopping over here from Sissy's blog... your comment about not getting any awards made me come over and see your blog. When I discovered that your husband is a serviceman, I want to give you an award from my heart:
I deep and grateful THANK YOU!! Your sacrafice for our country means a great deal to this family and we know that our country could not have the freedoms without the work done by families such as yours.
Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your son... I am a mother of two boys, albeit grown-up now, one of which is in the Army National Guard, and is being activated to Afghanistan next month. Thank you again for you and your husband's service and sacrafice for our country!!

So cute! I'm excited for you to have 2 boys in a row. It really is a blast.
I would love for you to pull a "Melissa!" It really is the most exciting for EVERYONE that way!
Good luck with everything. ;o)

I am so way excited for you. I knew that things would work out. Hopefully with them being prepared about the blood and platelets, they can limit the time in the nicu.
I love you and hope you are doing well. Hopefully you don't stay sick so long. Just remember, the Lords knows what we can handle and won't give us anything that we can't handle. :)

Boys are so much easier than girls! My QB nephew Max and his wife just found out they are having a boy also!!! Gotta start the quilts!!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Yayyy for you and your family.

Boys are so easy! Especially when puberty hits!

Congrats on another sweet baby boy! Connor will be a great big brother. Jenn

Jenny said...

Another boy, that will be great! Congrats!!!!

Andrea said...

NICU is the best place to be when your little guy needs help. It's better when they (and you) are prepared ahead of time than to be slapped with an emergency at birth. I am so happy Connor has a little brother on the way! You have such a wonderful family.

Monster Mary said...

Aren't boys so much fun! I think so. Congrats. I'm glad all is well so far and I'm really glad they have a plan for you. I'm sure things will go well. Babies are so wonderful.
