It's Official!

...we're having a boy!!
The "money" shot!

Everything went great!  We are so happy.  All measurements seemed to be good.  I did have a moment where I was a little worried because the ultrasound tech was taking a long time looking at the heart, but then she said he was very active, and wouldn't stay still long enough for a good measurement.  *whew* 

I go back in 3 weeks for another ultrasound.  One of the proteins in my blood came back a little low at 12 weeks, and it can indicate a risk of low birth rate and pre-eclampsia.  I had the same low protein with C, and I went for ultrasounds every 2 weeks with him until 32 weeks (for this and other reasons.)  But the doctor said that now they understand what might cause pre-eclampsia better, so this next ultrasound should answer those questions, and then I will only have to go once a month for ultrasounds. 

I must really be showing now, I had a little girl on Friday ask me why my belly was getting so big.  I love little kids, they are so honest.  I had a little boy tell me I looked like Santa Clause when I was pregnant with C. 

Not the best angle, but look at that belly!
