Boy, Oh, Boy!

*Ultrasound pictures below*

We had our 17 week ultrasound yesterday and everything looked really good. They told us for sure it's a boy and we got a really good look because he stuck his ass right in the "camera". Thanks for that! The blood tests came back great and I just can't believe that we are so on track. We are having a boy! Wow.


I just have to share something that happened at work. I was processing a new employee and the cost of health care came up. She mentioned that she had insurance, but resented it because she didn't go to Doctors and only practiced natural medicine. Ok, fine, I thought. Since she has three kids she keeps the insurance in case of emergencies or broken bones. She then proceeded to complain about the cost of insurance being due to "those illegal immigrants". Now, I am a pretty open minded person in a closed minded part of the country, so I can always sense when racist rant is headed my way. I felt the need to head her off before it got worse, so I explained to her what factors really keep insurance rates high, but she just sort of looked at me with vacant eyes. Then she came up with this little gem:

Yeah, and people with diabetes. I got a flyer in the mail for a walk for diabetes research. Why don't they just stop eating sugar? Ever thought of that? What?????????? Are you kidding me? I felt like I was in an episode of The Office. What a horrible thing to say! I almost wanted to laugh, it was so terrible.

Anyway, congrats to Fatty Pants and Vacant Womb who have all gotten great news recently. I am also thinking about Becky. If you have a chance, go and give her some love. Thank you so much to JJ for her wonderful cd. I love all of the music. I am a firm believer in music therapy and I can tell that she is, as well! I have a bunch of stuff to send out to the Braces Bunch. School and work have been eating my lunch, lately, but I will get to it soon, I promise!


Ok, here is the little one with his butt in the air:



And here are some profile shots:

Precious!!!! Oh I can tell already that he's gonna be a cutie! So glad things are progressing so well!

Glad you like the CD--I am a FIRM believer in music therapy--I would be a sad, sad girl without some good tunes!

What a HUNK!!! and a ham obviously. I am so glad things are progressing so smoothly. If those diabetic should just stop eatting sugar, for their treatment, should she just have a lobotomy as hers ?

The butt in the air picture is hilarious! Congratulations!

I would have been ready to choke that ignorant woman...

Congratulations on your SON!!!! I'm only a few days behind you, but I still have to wait 3 more weeks to find out-UGH!!

That lady sounds like an idiot. I agree she may need a lobotomy to cure her problem!

Sometimes I think that way about people I see smoking at work. Like - why are you smoking!? You are making my health insurance expensive! I wish we had a smoke-free workplace.

But the diabetes? That's going a bit too far.

"open minded person in a close minded part of the country"

I love that phrase! I may steal it!

I wonder if those children who develop childhood-onset diabetes know they just need to stop eating sugar?

Great fetal pics!
