I had a checkup last week and everything looked great. All my test results came back negative and the baby's heartbeat sounded great. "I" was on the phone during the checkup and was able to hear the baby's heartbeat. It was the first time he has been able to hear it without it being a recording or something so he was pretty thrilled about that. Then the midwife happened to mention something about the optional ultrasounds they offer to find our the sex of the baby and of course "I" was all over that. He said they had had a really bad week and would love some good news to cheer them up. Unfortunately the last u/s appointment for the day had just been taken and they didn't have another one available until Tuesday (5 days later). I could tell he was very disappointed so I told him I would call up there every day and see if they've had any cancelations. The next day they still didn't have any openings so I got her to see if their other locations had any. Score!!! We got an u/s scheduled. I had "I and A" on speaker phone and the u/s tech told them they were gonna have a boy. They were so excited. I loved hearing their reaction. They both started screaming, it was so funny. Later I asked them if they'd told everyone yet and "I" said, "Everyone, literally everyone!" and they were out shopping for baby clothes and sent me a picture of an outfit they picked out...LOL!!! They are so funny and they are going to be such great parents. They sent me some flowers today to tell me thank you for everything and happy belated birthday.
Now, onto the pictures :)
he looks surprised in this one...lol
it's a boy
4D ultrasounds aren't quite as cute this early as they are when you have a 30+ week chubby baby in there, still pretty cool though.
