The W Family Chronicles

Here s/he is, folks!

Posted on: July 10, 2008

Today I had my nuchal translucency scan to check for abnormalities and everything looked great which has been a load off my mind! If you are unsure of what you’re looking at here, let me try to explain…
Cletus the Fetus
The black space in the center is the amniotic fluid. Inside it is the baby. The roundish thing on the left side is the head. To the right, the oval-ish thing is the baby’s body. You can barely see the arm buds on either side of the body. Actually, they are probably more than buds at this stage…but I can’t remember, so I’m not sure. Regardless, those little dots on either side are what will be arms.

I also received a gender prediction (from the midwife, based on my symptoms, not from anything the ultrasound tech saw!) so we’ll see how that plays out. She kind of reinforced what I’ve been thinking, though. Probably about 6-8 more weeks before we know so I’ll keep that info a secret for now. I will say that this pregnancy has been very different for me, so read into that what you will! 😉 I’m trying not to get my hopes up for anything either way…

If anyone is curious about what is going on developmentally right now, this is a great site for info.

Everything looks great, so we couldn’t be happier right now. Keep the prayers and good thoughts coming, though!

For the record, I predict GIRL.

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
