Seeing the Doctor

I had a Dr.'s appointment on Tuesday. I should mention before I go on that I have been planning on talking to Dr. into inducing me 1-2 weeks early (I am not going to lie...being pregnant bites). On my first visit he told me that I would not be able to have a big baby, so my argument for getting induced early was to make sure that the baby wouldn't be too big. Well, on Tuesday he said that I was measuring small and he wanted to get another ultrasound. So...I am pretty sure I will have to think of a new argument. Everything looked fine in the ultra sound. The Ultra sound Tech asked me if the Doctor said I was having a boy (Audrey kept talking about her baby brother), and I said yes. Then the tech started shaking her head and saying "Doctor Lane..." so of course I got very excited at the thought that I would be having another girl. Alas, after the baby moved a minute later the tech said the Dr. was probably right that it was a boy. Still, it was an exciting two minutes. So I have about 6 weeks till my due date (July 8th) but if things go as planned and the baby is born June 21st, that is less than a month away! June 21st you ask? OK, so I am a MAJOR nerd (like I have to tell you that) and I really like multiples of 7, 21 being one of those. Also, the only thing I ever learned and retained from earth science was the solstices, June 21st being the summer solstice. We are planning on naming him Phoenix, so I think being born on the summer solstice would be appropriate. My favorite thing about the city Phoenix is that it is sunny roughly about 360 days of the year.

So, to sum it up, the baby is small but healthy, he is still a boy, and I hope he is born on June 21st.

I hope he comes when you want--Jonathan was born June 20 and Cortney was born June 18. (Ally was due June 13, but came early--May 24) Isn't Father's Day June 21 this year? Jonathan was born on Father's Day back in 1999--I'm glad it's not the same every year, but it was fun when he was born.

I think you will love having a boy. Boys are FUN!!! I am so craving a baby boy.
