It's a Boy!!

We found out that we are going to have another little boy!! We are so excited and CAN'T wait to meet him. We found out a week ago and Bryce will still come to me at least once a day and become randomly giddy with a huge smile on his face and say, "We're having another boy!" It's so cute how excited he is. Bryce says if he could have it his way we would have all boys, but i know he would be just as excited if we we're having a girl!

My original due date, based off my cycle is January 17th but at the ultrasound the tech informed us that we are a week ahead of that! So now our due date is on our 5 year anniversary, January 11th! I guess thats if I make it 40 weeks which the doctors are betting against that. Maybe 37 or 38 at the most. Right now the best we can do to make sure that this little boy will stay in longer than Mason did, is to be on progesterone shots. My doctor told me that they aren't guaranteed to make me go full term but they are proven to prevent pre-term labor at least couple weeks longer than the pre-term labor before. I'm not exactly sure how it works but i have to give myself a shot once a week, which I started at 16 weeks, with a needle that is 2 INCHES long! Right in my upper thigh on my backside, aka butt! I've never had a problem with needles or shots in the past, but I've also never had to give myself a shot before! Bryce has always become so sick at the sight of needles, to the point that he has to leave the room. (when i got my epidural i didn't see him for awhile actually!) So I knew from the beginning that i would be on my own. For the first fews weeks I just couldn't bring myself to do it and i had to go in weekly to my Docs office to have a nurse do it for me. I have since grown up a little and became much braver and am proud to say that for the last 2 weeks I have been able to do it all by myself! It really isn't as bad as i made it out to be in my mind! haha

The Tech kept laughing while trying to take measurements and when we asked what was so funny he said that our little boy isn't afraid to show his stuff, the tech would try to take measurements other areas of the babies body and he said without looking for "it", "it" was was there! It was funny!
