Baby Day!

OK, so this morning we had our OB/GYN appointment with our actual doctor, Dr. Laughead (Isn't that the funniest name?), it looks like laugh-head, but its said: La-head...weirdness, I know! Anyways, today we went in at 9:00 am to HEAR the heart beat on the Doppler machine, sorry no new sonogram pics. It took a couple of seconds but she found the heart beat!!!! Neena and I were so relieved to hear the heart beating well and the doc said that everything sounded perfectly fine and normal.

We are scheduling another appointment sometime next week for the kiddo, I can't remember what the name of test is, but they're testing it for Downs-Syndrome, Then on April 30th we get our next pic of the kiddo and on May 14th we will hopefully find out if were having a Jaycee or a Brodee!

So thank God for a good baby visit this morning! Continue praying for Neena's blood test results. Thank you to all who have been praying...they're definitely being answered.


Question: I know that there are all these old/ancient wives tales that talk about the heart rate and determining if its a boy or girl. I really don't believe in these things but just for fun, our baby's heart rate this morning was 148 bpm. I've heard that if its ABOVE 160 it's a girl, and BELOW 160 is a boy. Is that right? What do you think?

Yay for healthy heartbeats!! That is great news. I have a friend that is prego right now. The heart beat was above 160 and it is a boy. Who knows!?!?! Keep guessing! :) Continued prayers.

Thanks for the updates! I'll keep praying for a healthy (and uneventful) pregnancy for you all.

In regards to the old wives tale - I had heard it was...
above 140 = girl
below 140 = boy
But have not heard any testimonies as to the accuracy of that.

Congrats on hearing the heartbeat! I cried like a baby both times that I hear our kiddos!
Don't know if you know this or not, but the testing for genetic problems is all voluntary. You guys don't have to have it done if you don't want to.
Often times, those tests are wrong, too.
We opted out of it, because we knew that we'd be keeping our baby regardless of what the tests showed, and especially in light of the fact that we had friends who had been told their daughter was so bad off that she should be aborted...she's about 10 years old now, and has been perfectly healthy from day one.
Just thought I'd share that with you.
Blessings to you two!

I've heard the same thing Davina shared so...I'm sticking with my "girl vibes"! ; )

Boy or Girl, this is going to be one very loved baby!
