It's Going to be a Boy!

I have been so busy lately that I've not taken time to post an update.  A couple of weeks ago, we had another ultrasound and found out that it's another boy.  Everything seems to be going well.  They say that all measurements are exactly as they should be right now.  BJ continues with the blood thinner shots, vitamins, and baby aspirin.  The "high risk pregnancy" doctor told us that he doesn't think we should induce birth early as we did with the last one.  This makes both of us a little uneasy as I want to be sure not to be traveling when the baby is born.  I have been on the road a great deal. 

Other than 2 weeks off at Christmas, I probably will be away, in Nashville, 3 nights a week until late summer or fall.  I have been asked to go to Mexico for February and March but have said "no".  I feel a bit guilty about being gone so much.  I guess this winter I'll start sending out resumes and looking for some work that doesn't require so much travel.  I love my work but the travel is starting to get to me again.  Plus our first son, Skylar, will likely be playing sports next summer and I don't want to miss my children growing up.

When I'm not traveling, I work out of my home.  I'm losing my home office to make another nursery.  It seems we are outgrowing our home.  If we don't move up then I'll have to actually drive across town to use my cubical in the Lexington plant.  I love working form home but can't do it without a private room in which I can hide.  On the bright side, my parents up in Cincinnati may be buying a new house soon.  My wife and I are thinking about buying their old house.  This would give me space to work from home as well as put me closer to family.  My brother's kids are almost old enough to babysit and it'd be really nice to be close to them.

I enjoy reading your blog. I sense the same uncertainty and hope in your posts that I feel being pregnant with MTHFR and on blood thinners, aspirin, and folic acid. After 3 miscarriages and a diagnosis this summer, I am 14 weeks and so far things look good for us too and we hope to find out what we are having soon. Good luck. Thanks for your perspective from the daddy's side

I, too, am pregnant with the MTHFR (C667T mutation). I'm glad to read of experiences similar to mine. We're nine weeks pregnant and all looks to be going well. We graduate to a regular OB next week.

Thanks for writing this blog!
