Justin and I met at Arlington High School in 9th grade. We had a few classes together but never really took too much interest in each other until sophomore year in Mr. Collins class. That’s when it all began. Justin sat behind me and bothered me to no end. He would kick and shake my chair and make cow noises at me then call me moochelle. I guess that was his way of flirting. Don’t ask me how it worked but it did. Justin and I dated all through high school and continued after we graduated. We got married after 8 LONG years on July 26th 2008.
Well since the last time I logged in LOTS have changed. During my 11 week appointment Dr Daum did a sono and said I still had some bleeding but it had looked like was going to absorb itself. I have had no bleeding since my 9 week appointment!! Dr. Daum also talked to me about doing my quad screen and basically just explained why and what they tested for. When I went to check out they scheduled me for FOUR WEEKS! this was the first four week appointment I have had since I became pregnant. I was VERY excited that I was back on the normal pregnant woman schedule. My last appointment I was 15 weeks and this is first appointment where we did not do a sono. He listened to the baby's heartbeat on the Doppler which was very cool to hear.. He said it was in "Girl Range" Not getting my hopes up because they could always be wrong. He told me to go do my lab work for my Quad Screen and they would let me know the results. A few days went by and finally they call. It was Dr Daum himself. It caught me off guard because the nurse normally calls. Dr Daum told me that the normal percent for a 26 yr old for down syndrome was 1 to 970. Mine came back 1 to 226. This freaked me out. He told me not to worry that sometimes the test are wrong. He sent Justin and I to a specialist to have a high tech sono done to check for soft spots found in down syndrome babies. We had our appointment February 3rd and go figure if the snow did not cancel the appointment. We rescheduled our appointment for the following Monday. The sonographer did the sono and said she would tell us the sex if she could tell. We were very excited to find out early since we were not at a fun appointment anyway. Turns out baby witte is just perfect! no soft spots or signs of down syndrome!! However baby witte is VERY active and was not wanting to show his/her parts to anyone! The Dr said baby is sitting on their feet and the cord is between their legs.. I now have an appointment with an imaging place THIS FRIDAY to find out the sex!! She told me that I will not get off the table without knowing! We are having a Gender Reveal Party the next day to let our family know what the sex of baby witte is. We are so very excited to find out the sex of baby witte! Mommy and Daddy have LOTS of work to do in your room! I will let everyone know what the sex is Saturday night.... stay posted!! :)
