Busy bee

Hey Ya'll,
Well its been a busy few days. Going to the big city, shopping, ultrasounds, more OB's this morning. PHEW! Where am I these days?
SO the NT test went well. We got to watch Sticky for like 25 minutes. S/he was running around in there, stretching, kicking, sucking his/her thumb, etc. Too precious for words. Although we wont be able to get the actual results combined with the blood tests back for a few more days, all looks well according to the most kick butt radiologist dude I've ever met. He was awesome!
With all of Sticky's exercising in there, we got a lot of cute shots. I will have to scan some pics and show you. After all the exercises, Sticky was tired and curled up for a nap. Guess growing a gabillion cells and stuff a day is taxing for a lil wee one.
Speaking of wee one, the radiologist asked if we'd like to know the sex of the baby. I was like YEAH! I didn't even give Angel a chance to respond. He checked three different angles to be able to confirm, but its a BOY! Sticky has a GOOTER! (I have a friend of mine that calls her boy's stuff, "gooters" and I think its so funny) So now, he will definitely be named after my Daddy and his Daddy (Angel). Now we can start planning! The radiologist said that they aren't always able to see these things, but with all the acrobatics, he got good views(3) of everything and felt very confident that it was a boy.
After 3 different people have changed my due date, I'm now officially going with Oct 15. That is pretty much in the middle of all 3 days, and its not that big of a deal. I'm going to say the month of October and I think we'll be in there somewhere. But according to my OB, whom I saw today, she is officially saying that I am 13 weeks 1 day today. So instead of Sunday being my day to jump up a notch, now, its Tuesday. I can live with that. Its not an exact science anyway. I'm okay, as long as Sticky is okay.
I get to go off of my progesterone on Monday and have a blood test Wednesday to see if my placenta is making enough progesterone for me. I'll be so happy to let go of this yeast infection AND I'm really getting tired of the whoo whoo pills too. But I'll keep doing it forever if thats what it takes.
Also, OB said if we haven't had any issues with spotting or cramping in two weeks, we can revisit the idea of having relations! I'm excited about that too. So I'm crossing my fingers!

Hope everyone is well. Im horribly behind on my commenting and reading. But I'll get caught up.

Love to all!
