Yesterday was a very exciting day! I was anxious all day to get the ultrasound going. Below is a scanned image of one of the ultrasound pictures. I wish I had more pictures, but they all look like this!! The baby is basically facing outwards looking at you. It's kind of creepy, but so cool. You can see the eye sockets, nose, hands, stomach and little legs. As the ultrasound tech was doing the routine measurements that they needed to get, I kept looking to see if I could see anything. I finally asked her if she could tell what the sex was and she said was trying to get a different angle. I thought, hmmm... maybe because it's a girl she can't see. Then all of a sudden, she said, "see that little thing there?" I was shocked! She said that looks like it could be a boy, but can't say 100%. They never can say 100%, but I finally got out of her that she was 95% sure. The baby looks healthy and everything looks normal and Ellie is going to have a baby brother. I think Nick was a little more excited than me, but only because I would have bet money that it was a girl. I felt so sure of it.
There are lots of things I have to learn about boys, their equipment, needs, and who knows what else! I'm so excited to go shopping, redesigning his room and start thinking of names.
