Baby Hays is.....

stubborn, and/or shy. Sorry to dissappoint everyone, but Baby Hays would NOT show the goods!!! I ate breakfast and drank alot of fluids in an attempt to get baby moving around, but he/she was pretty dead set on keeping those legs together. Dr. Weber tried both types of ultrasound, and baby still wouldn't show us. His/her legs were straight out, but closed tightly together. Dr. Weber did say that because he couldn't see any "extra tissue" anywhere, that the chance of Baby being a girl is about 70%. So, not quite enough to convince us. We have another appointment August 9th, so hopefully, Baby will be in a more entertaining mood. And the countdown begins....10 days.

Our Little Gymnast

As promised, here is the latest update on Baby Hays!!! This morning was my OB appointment. It went wonderfully, as expected. Although, this appointment was extra special because it was Brian's 25th birthday too!! I went in at 9am and had the usual pee in a cup and give blood. Then I got to see Dr. Weber. He said that my blood pressure, weight (which I've only gained a pound, woohoo), and urine were great. Next on the agenda was taking a look at Baby!!! Baby looks fantastic!!! He/she is getting SO big!!!! Baby measured at 2 and 5/8 inches!!! Also, Baby was kicking and twisting and making all kinds of movements!!! It was the coolest thing we've ever seen!!! Brian was amazed!!!! It was great. Dr. Weber is really confident that we should be able to find out the sex of the baby at the next appointment. Originally, the next appointment was going to be July 24th, but they are on vacation that week, so our next appointment will be July 30th. So, once again, another fabulous appointment. The ultrasound that I'm attaching to this blog is wonderful. However, just in case you can't really make out what is what, Baby's head is the lower left and the legs are the top right. If you notice, the knees are bent. Enjoy, and be checking back on the 30th for the big reveal of Baby's gender!!! We love and miss you all!!!!
