Here I am

Don't worry Amanda, I'm here! This is the update:

While trying to find the heartbeat with the doppler she had a really hard time. Every time she would put it somewhere, there was a big *swish* noise so she'd have to try in a different spot. After about 5-7 minutes of this, I was freakin out thinkin this was where I hear the bad news but then all of a sudden, my Dr. starts laughing. I look at her like she's crazy and say "WHAT?" She said that swooshing noise is the baby turning. She said it obviously doesn't want to let us hear the heart beat because every time I put the doppler on it, the baby turns the other direction. I was super relieved. Since she never did get a reading for the heart beat, she went a head and did another sonogram. I wasn't going to argue because I LOVE sonograms!!! We saw the heart and face and everything. Kora and Miah were with me and the doctor was so sweet pointing out all of the baby's parts to them. She "explored" for a while and I'm pretty sure she knows the sex, but she knew that I was scheduled to come in on Feb. 4th with Austin so I don't think she wanted to give it away yet.

SO, everything is good and fine. I have to take my blood test for Down's on Monday. I can't WAIT for the BIG sonogram and to find out what it is. I'm so excited!!

Miah keeps asking if I'm okay and if the baby is coming out yet. He's going to have a really hard time waiting until June/July for the big moment. Right now, his favorite show in the mornings is TLC's Baby Story. As soon as we get Jake off to school, he runs upstairs, gets cozy under my blankets and asks me to turn the TV off (he means on) so he can watch "the baby coming out".

That's it!! Thanks for worrying about me :)

ps.. one more thing! I tried that new sandwhich chain called "Which Wich" and it is absolutely DEEEElicious! You have to try it out if you know what I'm talking about. They have the funnest little system when ordering and the kids got a big kick outta being so "in charge" of their food.

AWE! How sweet! Miah just sounds like the sweetest natured little guy!

I am so glad things are going well! I can't wait to hear the sex of the baby! YAY!!!

Dang it.. i thought that throughout your post you were going to reveal the sex of the baby... now i realize you won't find out until feb. and i'm ERKED. I know.. i made that word up. Anywho.. i'm glad Miah likes a baby story... that is one tender soul. i'm so EXCITED to know if it's a girl or a boy... but i had a dream that it was a boy... it made me sad because i was really hoping it was a girl both in my dream AND in real life. ANywho..

The more I read the more I expected you to say the doctor told you there were twins! Whew. Still only one new Lowe to be excited about.

Well...I have to wait a week longer than you to find out the sex! I am glad to hear that everything is going great:) I haven't had one sonogram yet since I am at a birth center and the sonographer comes once a month (if you need a sonogram before then they out-patient you somewhere) So I consider you lucky! I haven't even seen my baby once!

We may not yet know the sex, but we do know her/his intelligence quotient. Smart little cookie that's what--unwilling to share its heart with just any Johnny-come-lately wielding a doppler.

Names--what are the Lowes considering?
If it's a girl, "Hadley"?
If it's a boy, "Kieran"?

Please give her/him a pat, pat from me.
