It's a Boy!
Here is my little Daniel Dannells! (We are still deciding on a middle name.) We are so happy! Ruh is a very proud dad! He was beaming from ear to ear when the ultrasound technician said "boy". At first you couldn't see anything because the umbilical cord was right between his legs. But towards the end the cord moved and "it" could be seen! At first she thought I may have placenta previa which is when the placenta is over the cervix which means c-section since the baby's way out is blocked. But later on she found a different angle and saw that my placenta is a good distance away from my cervix so no worries there! She found two small cysts on either side of his brain. She took the pictures to the radiologist and came back and told us that this happens in 7 out of 10 babies and they normally disappear before the baby is born. They do like to keep an eye on them though so I will be going in for another ultrasound in about 2 or 3 weeks. She said most likely they will be gone at that ultrasound. They are only .3 cm in size. So please pray they will disappear. I guess they are nothing to worry about but when you hear "cysts" and "brain" it is a little alarming. She found that I am two weeks ahead of where the doctor put me. So tomorrow I will be 22 weeks along not 20! That's kind of nice. My due date is now June 16th not the 26th. The picture is not very clear because he was squirming around. I had a piece of chocolate cake before the ultrasound! The little guy was all hopped up on cake! :)
