Well, we finally had our ultrasound today and discovered what the sex is of our fourth child. Micah, Caleb and Noah were all pretty curious to find out – okay, maybe not Noah. He’s only two so he doesn’t really get what’s going on yet. But anyway, there was a bunch of confusion – originally we were to have the ultrasound a couple weeks ago, but our midwife went into labor with her own pregnancy on the day of our appointment, which was just plain rude if you ask me! ; )
So we got rescheduled to today! Heather and I were both pretty tense … we wanted to know if this baby, our fourth would be our first girl or not. The ultrasound tech was playing around with the 3-D imaging; these were two of the best. You can kind of see the baby’s face in the top photo; down below you can see the hand pretty clearly. It was kind of like the kiddo was waving to us! At another point, the baby had a finger shoved up the nose! Sheesh!
Well, there was no doubt about it. In fact, I saw the truth before the tech told us … we’ll be saving our girl names for another day! This little critter is a BOY! Looks like I’ll have my five MAN paintball team I’ve been joking about for the last few years after all! We’re both pretty excited – the whole pregnancy got a lot more real today! : ) It was fun seeing him on the screen, waving, yawning, kicking … July 19th is coming up fast (due date)!
