13 weeks!

Yesterday was my second OB appointment and everything looked great. We had another sono and baby looked great, measuring right on, actually a couple of days ahead but it all evens out in the end. All my labs from last appt were great and everything is right on schedule. The exciting news is that my doctor said that he would do another sono next time to try and find out the sex. He was going to wait until 2 more appts and I would be 21 weeks but he said next time we could definitely try. I will be 17 1/2 weeks so he said as long as baby is cooperating we should find it. Oh my gosh, that is May 19. I can not wait. If nothing else, we get to see baby again. He will probably still do one the next time just to confirm. We are so excited baby is doing good and everything is on track. Good news too is that my cold is going away and my doctor said at this point in my pregnancy I can take "pretty much" whatever for it. That sucks because I have been suffering for a week with this and just taking tylenol. Oh well, baby is safer that way. Hayden got to go to the appt and was so cute and visited all the people that have not seen here since she was 6 weeks old. She had no idea of course what was going on with the sono but she was intently watching my belly with all the goop on it. Anyway, all is well at the Tennison's. Love to all!

Miss Hayden!

This was at home before we left to go get Daddy. She was being impatient and wanted her shoes on and to go.
I'm bad, I didn't take as many pics as I should. This was in the car on the way to Grammy and Pa's.

OK, so I have been a really bad Mommy. I haven't blogged on Hayden Kate in a while. We haven't done too much lately so there hasn't been much to say. I think pregnancy sickness and being tired have made Hayden and Mommy home bodies for the last several weeks. Easter weekend started out great. Friday we picked up Daddy from "wuk" as Hayden calls it, and then headed down to White Bluff to Scott's parents. They live on the 18th green so Hayden loves running around the golf course with Daddy and Pa. Saturday was cousin Carter's 1st birthday party so we went to Cleburne for that and then went and had dinner with everyone afterwards. It was really fun but Hayden had not had a nap and was very irritable and dinner so it was cute a little short. Saturday night she woke up at midnight screaming and burning up with fever. She was up for several hours until the tylenol kicked in and she calmed down and went to sleep. Needless to say we did not get to go to Easter service with Grammy and Pa Sunday morning. Bummer! She didn't get to wear her precious Easter outfit or anything. Oh well, that's not the point of it anyway. We stayed for lunch but had a very irritable, clingy, hot girl so we headed home early. Ever since then we have been fighting this cold. We went to the Dr. Wed and they said it was just a viral cold and not much we could do. She is so pitiful. Being a nurse does not make it any easier to take care of sick ones when they are your own. We have had many sleepless nights this week and fussy girl, which is very unlike her. Anyway, that's what's been going on with us this week. I am so glad I only work PRN and don't have to worry about calling in or her being with someone else when she isn't feeling well. Hopefully she will be on the mend this weekend. We plan on vegging out with Daddy and staying in.

OK, so I caved a week or so ago and did the Intelligender test. I know some of you have heard of it but for those who have not, it is a urine test that supposedly tells you the sex of the baby. I don't really know what it is checking for in the urine but it supposedly works. I real the testimonials about it before I bought it and they were pretty much right on. Of course they are not going to post anything negative but what they hey. You have to use your first morning urine and it was on a Saturday morning so Scott was home. Ours said... GIRL! Now of course Scott said he already knows it's going to be a girl and that was no suprise to him. Neither of us care either way and another sweet girl would be great. Of course a boy would be great too. The way I feel, God gives you what you are suppossed to have and that's that. We are not paitning another room pink right now, we are going to wait until the official sono in June but it was fun to test. Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there. Stay posted for more on baby!
