"That might be a penis"

I betcha no one reads my blog anymore! I don't blame anyone, it's been a lifetime since I posted anything. Not that we haven't been having loads of fun, because we have. Here's a just a few of the fun things that have happened since my last post.
1. found out we are unexpectedly expecting...again.
2. Tom started moonlighting at the Sierra Blanca prison. He says it's not as glamorous as one would think.
3. at 10 weeks I started hemorrhaging profusely (sorry, I know it might tmi).
4. Spent some time in the ER were I was diagnosed with what is called a subchorionic hematoma. Good news is the baby is fine, but my uterus not so much.
5.I am put on modified bed rest until I'm out of the danger zone.
6. My Mom came to visit.
7. We sent the kids the stay with family in AZ. (modified bed rest says I'm not suppose to lift anything more than 10 pounds, push a vacuum, sweep, or really do anything useful.
8. Tom and I joined the kids in AZ for Christmas.
9. Came back to TX and took the kids to the ER.
10. Haylie had pneumonia and so did Huck.
11. Huck spent four days in the Pediatric unit of the hospital for his pneumonia.
12. We celebrated New Years Eve by getting Huck home from the hospital and going to bed by 10 p.m.
13.at week 19 we found out that the hematoma has cleared up so I can have a normal pregnancy from here on out.
14. The doctor told us we are having a girl....five minutes later it might be a boy. Her words exactly "that might be a penis. But if it is I've never seen a penis that looked like that before. I guess we'll just have to wait and see." Now, I'm really worried.

So, lots of fun times for us in El Paso. So far this has been the longest pregnancy of all time. Now that it's Feb we are all doing well. The baby is due July 1st and I'm hoping for a healthy normal sexed child. I am getting another ultrasound next week so I'm really hoping the tech can tell us for sure one way or another. I'll keep you posted.
