It's a......BOY!!!!

We just had our ultrasound earlier this week. It was amazing! The baby was so active, and we got some great photos of him! We even got one of him sucking his thumb He is so cute, I can't wait for his arrival. Seeing him in the ultrasound made me want to be able to hold him! I know, he will come soon enough. The most important thing is that the technician said he looked very healthy! We really wrestled with our decision to find out the sex, because our initial plan was to wait and keep it a surprise, but we were just so anxious to find out! I really think that knowing the sex it going to be helpful with planning, and know we know he is a boy I feel like I can picture him better now that I am feeling him move and thinking of him more and more.

Other good news...last night we actually saw and felt him move in my belly! It was great, because I have been feeling him for a few weeks now, but I was so eager for my husband to be able to experience it as well. I was lying down on the couch, and my husband was reading a story to my belly (they say it helps the baby get to know your voices ) and we started seeing a little jump in my stomach where I felt the baby move! He could also feel it by putting his hand on my stomach. It's funny, I think the baby really likes being read to, as he always gets active when my husband starts talking into my belly! So now that we know, the next challenge will be on how to not go crazy with shopping for the little guy!!

Thank you foreverserenity! Everything is going great! I am loving the idea of a little Scott! He will definitely be a cute baby if he takes after his dad

Heres wishing you a Happy Pregnency: You could have waited for the surprise, instead of preempting the joy.

Back when mine were born, the science of ultrasound was not that far advanced, but they could still tell.  So while the OBGYN may have known, she never told us.  But by the 3rd, we knew (my family has a pattern).

Congrats on the Junior!  A joy to you and your husband!

Bahu,

How in ANY way will her joy be preempted by knowing that she will be delivering a HEALTHY baby boy??!

She seems pretty darned happy right now.

I agree with Hillaree. I thought this was a rude comment to post. Of course I could have waited to find out the sex, but it was a personal decision made by my husband and myself, and we decided to find out the sex. It is nonsense that the delivery will be any less joyful with us knowing the sex ahead of time.
