May I have a drum roll, please? Baby #2 is a boy! According to the ultrasound technician, he's looking good and measuring right on target for an early August birthday. This news all came as a welcome relief, especially as I haven't been feeling him move at all and I know I was definitely feeling Sammy by this point in my first pregnancy. Turns out I've got an anterior placenta, which is keeping me from feeling all of the little flutters and whatnot. I was pretty happy to see him kicking and punching on the screen, even though I couldn't feel a darn thing.
In somewhat related news, I've decided to make a switch in my insurance by going from TriCare Prime to TriCare Standard. This means I'll be able to choose a doctor and will no longer be beholden to the military health care system. I've been terribly unhappy with my experience so far and the stress of the situation was really keeping me from enjoying what should be a happy and exciting time in my life. Of course this now means that I have to find a doctor that's accepting new patients, STAT, but I'm just so happy to be done with all of that other nonsense.
