Yesterday was my NT scan. Instead of the NT measurement and 2 series blood test, I opted for the MatrniT21 blood test and sonogram. It will take a little longer to get the results, but it is much more difinitive. I should have the results by end of next week.

JuneBug was jumping all over the place yesterday during the scan. The Dr. could barely get the measurements he needed. The Dr. asked me "So, you said you have a busy 2 year old boy now? How was he during the Sonograms?" I told him, pretty crazy. The Dr. had trouble getting measurements. Funny how it matches his personality now. A little later in the scan the Dr. said, "Well, just prepare yourself for another just as busy"

Early gender guess is a boy. He showed us the boy parts, so we have started the name search in earnest now. We will confirm the gender on Jan. 3.

Boys are a handful but man are they fun, as you well know. Brothers are sweet (when they get along)

Very exciting! My little bean was ALL over the place during my NT scan, too. Kinda makes me wonder if I have another little boy in there. As of right now we're steadfastly Team Green so I guess I won't know for awhile.

Thank you, *sharon*, for my siggy!

Congratulations on another sweet little boy! Looks like we are already starting to accumulate a pretty good size team blue for this early in the game!

How far along are you? My daughter was never jumping all around on the ultrasound and this one was just lounging back during the NT scan. Occasionally he/she would move like they had the hiccups but not moving and waving like I hear some ladies talking about! I wonder...

I was 12w3d at this scan. Close to the same last time. Don't worry, some babies are just more laid back than others. My son is very full of energy now and he was during all my ultrasounds. He def. runs circles around most of his peers LOL

Wow. I was 13 weeks at my NT scan and they never mentioned early prediction. I'm jealous! But baby was just lounging and I ha to get up and walk around a while before he/she would flip over so they could measure. hah. So they probably didn't have a chance at looking at anything. Congrats on the early prediction! And good luck with the name search!
