We're having a...

BOY!!! Kudos to all you readers who guessed boy. Cory and I were both convinced we were having a girl. Everyone I work with thought it was a girl, my OBGYN thought it was a girl, my acupuncturist thought it was a girl... but nope, it's a BOY! After a little bit of initial shock, we couldn't stop grinning at each other. He will be the first grandchild on my side, and the first grandson on Cory's side.

Baby is healthy, which is what I'm most thankful for. I've been half worried that baby is starving to death, since I so often throw up my food. But nope, baby is growing and quite active. We could see him kicking, squirming and rolling. I think I've been feeling a little bit of him squirming, but no kicking yet... and watching him on the screen, I'm sure that's going to change. The ultrasound tech said he was very cooperative, and she got all the pictures and positions she needed.

It was so neat to see all the little parts on the screen. His little femur bones, his spine, his heart chambers... everything. So precious. We feel so blessed!

And now for the best part... pictures!

Nice profile shot

Cute baby feet

And my personal favorite... the alien picture

We're just so excited. We've told all our immediate family members... but my mom wants to be surprised, so if you're reading this, don't tell my mom. We'll see how long we can keep the gender a secret. I'm sure I'm going to slip up and call "it" a "he" and the surprise will be out. But in the meantime, we'll see how long it lasts :)

Congratulations, I'm so excited for you!!! Boys are fun, but I've decided that it's personality instead of gender that really determines what type of kid you get. :)

I was so thinking girl! But I am so happy for you, boys are wonderful. I have to admit that the u/s pics are my fave! It shows this little human inside, it makes all the throwing up and discomfort more bearable knowing there is a real baby in there! (At times I thought it was an alien or a tumor who was out to destroy me slowly....)

Congrats! Are you going to the Viewmont reunion, so our babies can meet? We are being suprised, so I am not sure if it is a boy or girl, but they will only be a month apart, so they have to meet! ;)
