Jonathan and I snuck in for a late afternoon ultrasound this afternoon at my doctor's office and was told It's A BOY! We have been told probably a boy 2 previous times, but now we are as sure as we can be and we are THRILLED! After the appointment we went to Name Dropper and Baby Cox's Granna (my mom) bought him a couple of precious outfits and a Little Giraffe burpie. It is so soft. As for names we are pretty sure on what it will be,but we will probably discuss it a little more before announcing it to everyone.
I apologize for not posting Monday, but Jonathan and I got some unexpected and unnerving news. My Down's Blood Test came back abnormal. We had a few options and after discussing it with Dr. Dupre we have decided to go to UAB in July for a targeted ultrasound. This is just a VERY detailed ultrasound. These results do not always indicate Down's. My blood percent for my age should have been 0.1 %, but it was 1%. This is not a high percent, but it's still considered abnormal. I have read several stories where women have gotten abnormal results and everything is fine. Dr. Dupre thinks the targeted ultrasound just in case the baby has any other defects or health problems we can go ahead and plan for the proper treatment for the baby gets here. Until we know anything all we can do is Pray and ask everyone to pray for us. I did find out too that I DO not have to have a C-Section. Dr. Dupre got my surgery report and it's not needed anymore (atleast not right now).
I feel like I have so much to say bc it's been a roller coaster of a week. I just don't know where to start. Jonathan and I did get a very nice gift from Baby Boy Cox's Granna last night. She showed up at the house with a Nikon D60 SLR camera. Jonathan and I are so excited we have been looking at them for the last month or so and we can't wait to be able to take GREAT pictures of our Baby BOY with it. We also got it just in time for Grayden's First Birthday Party this weekend and our week next week.
I will post my ultrasound pictures from today sometime in the next couple of days.
