When I was finally called back, we got a good look at the baby. It is most definitely a boy, no doubt about that. The tech said he looked very healthy and in proportion. I'm measuring about 9 days ahead and the little guy is approximately 5 pounds. If that is so, I'm guessing he'll be very close to Hero's birth weight of 8 lbs 14 oz when I have the c-section, provided I don't become very ill and stop eating.
When I returned home my husband was a bit frazzled and said he didn't know how I did it everyday caring for our two boys. They had been a handful while I was gone. I'm glad he got to see a little of what I deal with. It'll be interesting to add another boy to the mix. I'm sure they will be quite a gang when they get old enough for each other. It makes me wish we had some property so I could send them out to dig or build forts or chase each other til they drop from exhaustion. We'll see. They are still too young yet for much of that and circumstances may change where we would need to move.
Happy feast of St Lucia.
