It's a BOY!

We found out via ultrasound this morning that the baby is a boy! The picture above shows his legs and the arrow points to the proof he is a boy. He is growing well and looks great from everything they could see today. He measures 17 weeks and 5 days. He has been measuring about 1 week ahead at every ultrasound. Sydney was so excited! She loved watching the ultrasound and quickly learned to "read" the baby's position. The tech and the radiologist got a kick out of her and her excitement. They whispered to her that it was a boy and then she got to tell her Dad and I that we are expecting a boy. She also announced that she wants to do ultrasounds on babies when she grows up now. We have come a long way from the days when she wanted to be the person to hold the sign for the digger when it crossed the road! The video is a 3D video image of the baby. His head is at the top, his arm and leg look like they are coming out of some blankets. We are scheduled to have another US in about 6 weeks and they tech said the images would be even better at that time for the 3-D ultrasound. He is still a little guy at around 5 inches and weighing just a few ounces. Enjoy his first video below!

How cool is that?! They didn't have fun technology like that when I had my last one 19 years ago. (or at least not around here)

Exciting, too, that it's a boy!!!
