Finding out...

I was a little upset at last weeks "doctors" scheduled ultrasound. The technician was not friendly at all.  (I already knew it was a boy, because I paid for an ultrasound at UC baby) but I didn't say anything to the tech. All she said was "It's probably a boy, I see something between the legs" She showed me the small screen for a second and turned it away. She printed 2 fuzzy face pics and when I asked for better ones she said NO. Rude! I was sooo glad that I did not have that as my experience of finding out the sex of the baby. whew!

At 18 weeks husband and I were too excited and couldn't wait for the doctors ultrasound so we went to UC baby just around the corner from my home...ok we paid $200 for it (pretty expensive), but it was the BEST experience!

We seen the baby on a big screen moving around and sucking his thumb it was soo cute. Finding out it was a boy through that experience was amazing.  We also got 3 print outs and a whole CD of  pics of our little man. So I'm now telling friends to do the same to find out the sex of their babies instead of finding out through the cheesy lab machines. My opinion only of course :) But husband and I were happy we did it, and would do it again for later pregnancies :)

18 weeks pregnant

This week!
How Far Along: 18 weeks 3 days today.
Size of baby: Mango!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 14 lbs gained. My butt is growing at a faster rate than my belly..hmm.
Gender: Boy! Baby K
Sleep: better than before but still not getting much zzzz's 

Symptoms: More emotional these days, I am sooo sensitive! Headaches are back and backaches.
Cravings: None really, although I've been eating ice cream almost every day! I tried a new smoothie adding Similac... Not good! I'll stick to regular milk in my smoothies.

Best Moment so far: Finding out it's our little boy. Amazing feeling. 

For me: I need some stress relief, so I really want to make sure I'm walking more often and must start doing my pregnancy yoga dvd. I also need to really watch my water intake. I can't believe how hard it is for me to get only a min of 4 water bottles a day.

Hope you all are having a good day.
