and Puppy Dog Tails, that's what little BOYS are made of. Well, maybe not --- but we are about to find out!
Yesterday morning I went in for my 4th appt. I was pretty excited because I had talked to the girl before hand and asked her if she thought we might could do a little sneak peek and see what the baby was before my actual 20 week sonogram. She told me that wouldn't be a problem as long as the ultrasound lady was free. When I walked in, they moved right on back to the ultrasound room (before my appointment) --- I was so excited!
I have said this whole time that this pregnancy has been SO different. With Sarah Jane, I was sick the entire 9 months... with this baby, I am not necessarily sick (I feel GREAT!) -- I just can't keep anything down. Also, I carried Sarah Jane relatively low... this child is in my ribcage and has been since he was big enough to be noticed.
The lady put the doo-dad on my tummy and IMMEDIATELY said, "Awww, it's a BOY!" --- I asked her how she knew so quickly.... her response was "How can you look at that and NOT know" --- now, let me show you what I saw... you can see for yourself:
So there you have it --- the second picture of our little man.
When I left the Doctor, I immediately got in the car and headed to tell George the news.. his response: "I don't know how to play with Matchbox cars" :) Once it all set in, we are both VERY excited. Sarah Jane said ... "WE ARE HAVING A BOY!?!?!... but he is going to pick on me!" :) Once we explained to her that she will be the one doing the picking, she was fine with it and is super excited.
This afternoon, I am going to a baby shower for a friend of mine that has a baby boy due on Christmas day --- Sarah Jane told me I would need to take a pen and paper to take notes. HA!
I guess that it's that obvious that I don't know anything... ANYTHING... about little boys! Everything that I know is Sugar and Spice and everything nice. SO, I am open to all baby boy tips/suggestions/advice.
