So, first off, there is absolutely NO denying that this baby is ALL BOY!!!! The tech said he had an erection already and I was almost embarrassed to look at the screen!!! Everything looked wonderful and he weighed 12.8 ounces and had a strong heartbeat of 159. I also had what's called a Pinta screen today. I've never heard of it before but from what I understand its genetic testing and its just done later than most. I'm only 31 so I guess I just wasn't expecting that.

The biggest concern is my weight gain. My OB doesn't seem overly concerned but it really makes me nervous. I'm just so short and there just isn't anywhere for the weight to go. I honestly don't feel like I look as big as my weight says I am but it really upsets me. Total, I've gained almost 30lbs. I've taken belly pics each week and posted them, I just don't see it. Am I blind??? Maybe I do see it, I just don't want to admit it. I have swelling issues as well so maybe that has something to do with it.

Sorry this got so long. I haven't voiced my concerns yet to anyone. Not even DH, he would freak out if he thought I was seriously concerned. Thanks for listening.

Glad everything went well. Hey we're the same age! I was pretty sick the first trimester so I lost about 15lbs. I'm sure it's from the swelling. Congrats again!

Awww!!! Congrats on your little prince!

I bet the weight has a great deal to do with the swelling. You'd be amazed at what a few pounds in water weight looks like. Just keep drinking more fluids. Good thing, if it came on this fast, it's likely to come off just as quickly (or even more so!)

Congrats on your boy!
It took three years to get pregnant with my first and surprisingly I had my second 19 months after him!
