Its A Boy!!!

This past Tuesday we had our 20 week checkup and it was pretty exciting to say the least. This ultrasound appointment was important for several reasons. Of course this is when we have the option to find out the sex of the baby, but most importantly, this is when they check to make sure all vital organs and extremities are in tact. Needless to say, I was so nervous. So nervous that I put my sweater on inside out; which Nick kindly brought to my attention...AT THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE...G-Whizz Lisa...Get it together. Thinking back, I wasn't nervous because I was expecting something bad. I believe it was because I didn't know what to expect.

After an hour and a half on the ultrasound table, the tech confirmed Nick's greatest expectations. "Looks like you all are having a boy," she said. Nick responded with a fist pump and a resounding "YES!!!". She said she had to work really hard to get the film she needed because he wouldn't be still long enough. I believed her because I could literally feel him zipping from one side of my "stomach" to the other as if to say, "Leave me alone already...can't you see I'm sleeping?" He finally settled down after the first hour, and she was able to come back and get the rest of the shots she needed. We did get a couple of photos printed for us (see below). Photo 1 shows his face where you can clearly see the eyes and nose. Photo 2 shows one leg stretched upward, with bones intact, and the other leg bent at the knee. This one also shows his...well...umm.."package", as someone else so delicately put it. We also were able to get all 90 minutes on VHS...can we say, "Time for an upgrade." LOL!!! 21 Weeks and counting...
