Another OB Appointment      Tuesday, August 19, 2008 - 8:15 PM
I had my follow up to the ultrasound today and she said everything looked very good.  The ultrasound mixed with the blood work left a chance of Down syndrome at something like 1 in 10,000, which is very rare and should leave no worries about it at all.  Yeah!  There were be other birth defects tests down the road but we are in clear for everything tested for so far.  She said at our next ultrasound we will find out the sex of the baby!  I can't believe that time has come already.  The next OB appointment is scheduled for the 12th of September, which is the day we will leave town for the cabin at Deer Springs Ranch in Utah.  I will have to wait until we get back to have the ultrasound to find out but hopefully it will be pretty soon after we get back.  I haven't had very many worries regarding my doctor and the hospital.  I like both a lot.  I think soon I will schedule a "tour" of the hospital and birthing center.  I also need to look in to childbirth classes or Lamaze classes soon, just to test the waters so to speak.  I am not sure if it will be my cup of tea but I have always felt more comfortable the more informed I am.  It seems at this point each book I read or web site I visit is just saying the same things over and over.  I am sure there has got to be more information available.

I have been working so much that I have taken hardly any time so far for packing and finding a new house.  It is something we really need to start focusing on.  Getting a convention loan has been somewhat difficult and we are looking into an FHA but if that doesn't go well we will need to rent a house.  It is amazing there are so many houses on the market but they have made getting a loan so difficult that they will all stay on the market and everyone looses.  The most important thing is that we have a suitable place to bring baby home to in the next coming months.  We are almost 1/2 way there!!! Wow.
