It's A.............

Well, yesterday we went to the ultrasound. I felt bad because I convinced Zac to miss his class so that he could come because the only time that they could fit me in was during his class time. SO he missed his class, and the office was so backed up with only one doctor that we waited for and hour and 20 minutes. So Zac could have gone to his whole class and still made it before I went into the office. Oh well, it is not really something that you can predict. I think I was kind of nervous for the appointment, not that I really knew why. Maybe I was worried that the baby would cover up and we wouldn't be able to find out, or we would find an abnormality and then have to adjust to the fact that maybe we wouldn't have that 'perfect' baby, who knows, but the waiting didn't help much. Anyways, they finally called us back in and about 15 minutes later we started the ultrasound. Here are some pictures, I know that ultrasounds can be hard to see understand so I will try to explain a little.

This was the first picture that we saw, as you can see it is the baby's head. I actually thought this was really cool because you can see the ventricles of fluid in the brain that cross right where the arrows do in the center. It is the lighter area.
This one is the body, showing the intestines.

The long white part in the center is the baby's femur.

Here is our 'alien' baby, because that is really what they look like at this point. The head is on the right, you can see the bone structure of the face, right next to that is the stomach and below the stomach you can see the spine.
And here you go, as you can see it's a BOY!
And here is a 4D picture. His arm stretched from the right side across over his eyes. But below the arm you can see his little nose and mouth. At first I thought these pictures were weird, but I think it is cute to see his features.
We are both very excited to have a baby boy in our family. Zac asked the tech if she was really sure that it was a boy, I thought that was funny. But he is a proud Dad and happy to know that he will have a son to play with in a few years.
