It's a...




BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We are very excited! I didn't mention this before because I didn't want to sway your decisions when voting, but I thought we were having a boy. I even had a dream when I was 7 1/2 weeks, while we were in Utah, the night we told our families. It was a very vivid dream - I saw a baby boy and I knew he was ours. I can still picture his face. [Not that dreams are always accurate. I am thankful for that, as I have had some crazy dreams during this pregnancy...the kind where I wake up and say "WHAT?!?" Every night I dream about random people in my life who are not likely to show up in my dreams, but there they are.] The little guy was very active today. I could feel him moving around before the appointment, which I was hoping was a good sign. I had 1/2 cup of orange juice to get him going, but then I asked the tech if that is a myth or if it really works and she said it doesn't really work but that some babies are just more active and cooperative than others.

You can see that his most recent photo is blurry - that's because he was moving around so much. It's cool how you can see his spine in this one. I also liked how we could see his little heart beating during the ultra sound. We're grateful for this happy news and especially to know that so far he is a healthy baby. What a great day!

Congratulations!!! I can't believe I was wrong, but it looks like I wasn't the only one! I think your recent dress purchase swayed everyone. I call do-over. :-P

Aw, yay! That's so exciting. Congratulations, I'm glad you got to see your cute little guy moving around.

And how could the juice thing be a myth if that's what all the doctors tell you to do to test fetal movement and stuff? It always worked for my babies!

Hooray for knowing! I'm so excited for you! What a cute little profile! I thought for sure you were having a girl, not that that counts for anything... anyway, now you can get all your little boy stuff ready...

yay! I am soooo excited for you guys! Isn't it nice to finally KNOW what you are having so the baby can be "HE" and not "IT"!

Wow! Best wishes during the coming months until your little guy is finally here :) I love the US picture! You need to do a name survey so you can get input on that (and ignore all suggestions if you wish!)
