Is it a boy or a girl?

Well, we went in for another ultrasound today. And darn that little stinker. He was all scrunched up in a little ball. His knees were touching his nose! So when we tried to take a look at his little bottom, the umbilical cord was there in the way making it hard to tell what sex the baby was. Here I am talking like it is a boy. I thought that's what I saw last week. Today the technician thought it was a girl at first, then she said maybe a boy, and then we finally decided that it was just impossible to tell right now. That's ok. I've got another ultrasound in four weeks. Maybe by then this little one will let us know what we're having!
So the blood in the top of the uterus is still there. It has not changed. But I have also been diagnosed with partial placenta previa. The placenta is lying close to the cervix. It is our hope that as the baby grows bigger and the placenta gets larger that it will move away from the cervix. So, I am on another four weeks of limited activity. I can do a little more, but still can't do too much. So I am trying out "The Great Blog Hunt" to pass the time. I also have a few books to read from a friend. So hang in their little buddy or sweetie pie!
