17 weeks and amnio results!

Just got a call from my Dr. office and my amniocentesis results came back and they are PERFECT!! YAY!!! HAPPY DANCE!!! I had a good feeling about them but it is always nice to get that confirmation that you are praying for.

The nurse then said "do you want to know the sex?" I quickly said "no, and I better get off the phone before I change my mind." She laughed and said "ok, bye, have a nice Thanksgiving." Shew!! That is over with. I knew they would ask me and I felt confident in my ability to say NO but it is TOUGH when it is right at your fingertips a 100% without a doubt conclusion if you are having a boy or a girl. I made it though and now should be fine to make it the rest of the way. We do have the 20 week ultrasound on December 14th but now that I made it past the amnio phone call I should be fine.

The baby is the size of an onion now accord to thebump.com. It is about 5 inches long.

I HAVE BEEN FELING IT MOVE SOME!!! Now that is the coolest thing ever. It has been very slight of course but I know that is what it is. I just can't wait until my husband and the girls especially can feel it move. I can't wait to see what they think of it.

I am feeling GREAT still.

Looking forward to some time with family over the Thanksgiving break as well as a few days off work.

Oh, and I meant to share that my husband broke his left big toe on Sunday. We had to make a trip to the ER. He was helping my Mom move a large piece of furniture into her flea market booth and it just slipped out of his hands and landed on his big toe and broke it in 4 places. No surgery necessary as of now so that is a plus. He goes to the orthopedic Dr. next Tuesday to confirm that decisions though. He is hobbling around but getting around much better each day.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and as always don't forget to count your blessings!

I was due about the same time you were (last year). We had our 20 week ultrasound mid December too but we decided to find out the sex. We had the nurse put it in an envelope and we opened it Christmas morning. It was such a fun Christmas gift, we all opened it as a family as the last gift.Thought i was SO hard seeing that envelope sit there for two weeks!!!
