Introducing....our new Baby BOY!!!

Max William Doyal- coming to a hospital near you in August (I hope)!

I have waited patiently (well maybe not so patiently) for today and we finally got to hear the words, "It's a boy!" Pardon the lack of ultrasound photos of his nether-regions here. I figure if I post those on the internet, someday he'll hate me for it! So here's a body pic and a hand pic instead.

Just like Bailey was at this appointment, Max was very still and didn't want to move much, which made getting good pictures a little tricky. He also had his hands up over his face so we couldn't see his sweet smile! But everything looked and sounded good with all of his tiny body parts!

Me, on the other hand, well I always bring the drama! I told the nurse about my still-lingering nausea/vomiting and back pain so she did a urinary analysis which told that I was very dehydrated- I know, bad pregnant lady needs to drink more water. Then I found out that I have a low lying placenta (which we're going to hope moves so it doesn't turn into placenta previa) and my placenta is right in the front of my uterus (which can cause problems during a c-section which I will have). If this turns into placenta previa or accreta I could have bleeding during the third trimester, be put on bedrest, hemorrhaging during delivery, premature delivery, have to have a hysterectomy after delivery, or my favorite: maternal death!!! WOW!

I do not list these things to be pessimistic or worry anyone, but to ask for your prayers once again for me and Baby Max. We had so much prayer support at the beginning of the pregnancy when we had the cyst fiasco- so I just ask that you please keep us in your prayers again!


  1. Oh my goodness...congratulations on a boy! I'm so happy for you and will definitely be praying for you and Baby Max!

  2. Lots & lots of prayers for you and Max! And for Patty the Placenta to MOVE!!! :)

  3. Sending lots of prayers your way Holly! So happy to hear the news that it's a BOY! :) the name.
