Hello all! Sorry for the long wait. It's been a bit of a busy day and silly me forgot my phone at home. I have been a wreck without it!
But all is well! Everything is measuring perfectly (to the day in fact) and is in the right places. 2 arms, 2 legs, heart beating, blood pumping, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, etc. All the essentials are there and in in working order.
We were completely taken by surprise because we are:
Honestly, none of us saw that coming at all. Just about everyone around us (ourselves included) was convinced we were having another girl.
And while I'm not disappointed by any means, it will take a day or two to wrap my head around a baby boy. I was just SO SURE it was a little sister in there. Brynna has already decided on a name for her baby brother, however, since it's the same name that our good friends just named their little boy 3 weeks ago... probably a no go ;-)
I haven't had time to scan in our u/s pics, but will try to post them soon, as well as a 20 pic and update :)
Thanks all for the encouraging words!
For Lauren: Every u/s for me is hard until I know things are okay. About 8 years ago we found out at our 20 week ultrasound that our son would not survive due to chromosomal abnormalities. Besides the day I had to deliver him stillborn, that u/s was one of the hardest days of my life.
