Well, slap my ass and call me Nancy.

Or just call me nancy. Or just slap my ass. Your choice.

Got the call. The baby is chromosomally ~normal~. No trisomy 13/18/21. I jumped another hurdle.

A sincere thank you for all of your support. Each little comment of "I'm thinking of you" lifted my spirits. I've been really worried for the past week and each of you had a big hand in helping me through it.

Oh yeah. An odd chromosome was found in the set of sex chromosomes. Funny thing. There was a X ~and~ a Y. I could of sworn there was an XX set. But nope. Looks like I'm having a boy!

I am so happy the baby is healthy and normal! That is so great! *big hugs*.

A boy huh? I have two girls myself and if I were to have a boy I don't think I would know what to do with one! But I am sure you will figure it out! :)

Congratulations on the healthy baby boy (Tyler Durden right?).

You are the third person I “know” that has two girls and is now pregnant with their first boy. How exciting!

Miss Tori said...

A little blue in the maze of pink will be a welcome sight for your DH, I'm sure! He won't feel quite so outnumbers.

Congrats on the great test results and for your three legged babe.

P.S. Next time you should try the white sauce, chicken, artechoke heart, chile and garlic pizza. Yummy!

For just a second there I thought you were telling us that your kiddo had an EXTRA chromosome, thus resulting in a hermaphrodite. Seriously, I thought "She's taking this well," then re-read. Congratulations!

(I hope you like blue!) I actually love the little preppy boy clothes when combined with a baby mohawk- you MUST do baby mohawks if just once for me!
I am just so happy & relieved & excited for you! I hope this little guy isn't showing you that he's going to be a daredevil driving his momma crazy!

I am so freaking excited. I told you little John was going to be next! And I have to say I am so freaking excited for your hubby too! I kept thinking about my dad and how he lived with 4 girls plus my mom. I'm still not sure how he didn't kill us all! I can't wait to meet him and bite his chubby little toes. (can't do the ear that was Ella's, can't do cheek that was Allies, so I decided until further notice I am going to bite his toes) Love ya!
