20 Week Bump Update: GENDER REVEAL!

Sorry to keep you all in suspense!! (although if you follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Facebook, then you already know the news!)



Well, I'm 20 weeks pregnant! We had our ultrasound yesterday morning! I had butterflies all morning long and I found myself dying for the minutes to pass by so it would be time!

When I got to the doctor, I found that I was actually 45 minutes early! I had the wrong time! haha, but they saw me a little earlier anyway so it worked out okay :)

When we got into the ultrasound room, my doctor came in and casually asked if we wanted to know the gender (OF COURSE!) she put the wand on my belly and immediately said, "Well, the legs are pretty close together. Let's see if we can sneak a quick peek." Then she sort of held the wand over one spot for a few minutes going, "Hmmm. Looks suspicious." Bryan and I were both like WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? then she says, "I see a suspicious bulge you probably haven't seen on an ultrasound before". Then she just continues with the ultrasound! Finally we were like, "Um, what is it?!" and she goes, "Oh it's a boy!" haha! It was such a weird way of telling us that Bryan finally said to her, "How sure are you?" and she goes "Oh, 100% that's definitely a little boy!" then she gave us another very clear shot so we would be convinced ;) We were both RADIANT! We are soooooooo excited to have a little boy on the way!





I am still in shock! I think having 2 girls already, I was just sort of expecting that this one would be another girl... but secretly, I was really, really hoping for a little boy! AND THAT'S WHAT I GOT! I can't wait to meet our little man :) It's still sinking in though! It really started to sink in when my mom and stopped by the mall after and I started letting myself linger over the racks of little boy clothing :) I made a couple purchases:





The jury is still out on a name, but we are SO excited about our sweet little boy :) I'll let you know when we decided what his name will be! It's so fun to now say hello to my little man and to dream about what he'll be like :) I'm now able to pray much more specifically for him as well which is so fun! 

Unfortunately the ultrasound pictures didn't come out as well as I would have hoped. With Peyton I was in Minneapolis and with Britany in South Africa and both places had much more advanced ultrasound systems than they do here in Vermont. We really didn't get a clear profile shot or anything like I was hoping for  :-/ But my favorite picture of the day was this one: 



Isn't it great? Bryan is very proud already of our little football player :) (disclaimer: although of course we will love him just the same even if he doesn't choose to follow in his daddy's footsteps athletically!!!!!!) But I just love that our little man already has his hand perfectly cupped as if he's preparing to throw a pass! Little Quarterback, perhaps?!?!?!

Well, I'm off to get some rest :) This little boy is a sweetie, but he makes momma tired with all his growing!

Oh that reminds me... He's 11 ounces big :)

YAY! Congrats!!! We were over the moon as well when we found out we were having a boy. After having our daughter I felt the same way, like I was going to have another girl. Deep down I knew we were having a boy though! So happy for you! Congrats :)

Congratulations on your sweet boy!!! What a blessing! I am so happy for your family!!!

God bless!

Yay! I was excited to read the details! What a funny way of finding out ... I would have asked her 10 times too, haha. We knew what to look for this time around .. I keep forgetting you've only seen girls on your ultrasound! UNTIL NOW! You are going to love having a son. I am so ready for that experience again. Of course I love my Sophie, but I've always been a softy for little boys. And you wouldn't believe how much less drama there is ;)

Miles was 11 ounces too!

You look BEAUTIFUL!

Congrats on your sweet little boy! It seemed like I was hearing of everyone having girls for 2012 (including myself) I'm glad your little man has upped the count of boys. He will be so precious. Can't wait to hear what his name is. :)
