4/4



Weighing in at 11ozs. Measuring spot on for dates (18w5d for those keeping score at home). Everything looks good...No concerns at all.

Another boy!!! Sam will be thrilled. (And it's a good thing ya'll aren't professional odds-makers.)

The plan is to get steroid shots at 24 weeks and deliver at 35/36/37 weeks (as soon as possible). So we're talking probably sometime around Thanksgiving.

Steve and I are happy. Nervous...but happy.

For me...gained one pound (that's total so far...I'm pretty impressed with myself). BP after u/s (we didn't dare take it before) = 120/70 (normal for me). Back for another appointment next Wednesday morning.

(yeah, yeah, yeah...so I tried to type in a hurry and messed up the dates. I had a PUBLIC to answer to. LOL! Thanks Bon!)

i got to tell you, my little heart skipped a beat just clicking over here, when i remembered what day it was...

i am so happy all looks well. wee boy, little welcome one, please stay safe and keep growing. :)

though i think he's a little big for 8 weeks and 5 days, non? i could swear you've been pregnant longer than that!!! (i gather it's 18 weeks, yeh?)

congrats. and relief. and such hope.

Congratulations!!!

You better change it to say 18 weeks instead of 8, you about gave me a heartattack when I saw that. I know you are a couple weeks ahead of me so 8 just isn't cutting it. ;) Very happy for you and wishing and hoping all continues to be great from here on out.

Catherine, I am SO happy for you everything is going so well with you and Gummi Bear. and very happy GB is a BOY. I'm guessing I imagined GB to be a girl because I was thinking everything will be different this time around for you, AND IT WILL BE, AND Sam will finally get the brother he so wants to play with in the yard :)
