Ultrasound Results.....

Yesterday was the day. I was to be at the office at 11 which is the middle of the day. Antonio and I talked about it and decided that he would go to the official ultrasound on August 11th, but he wouldn't go yesterday since he would have to drive across town to get there. I was okay with that and so that was decided.


Then I got to thinking that I didn't want to go alone, so I asked my sister, but she has some interviewing to do, so she couldn't go. SO, I asked one of my best friends to go....Jennifer S. I didn't think she would be able to leave work, but to my HAPPY surprise, she said YES!!!


So, I picked her up and off we went. We got to the office and i called the ultrasound tech on her cell phone. She came and got us fast and we got started. As soon as she put the thing on my belly, we saw this....

And then we saw this.......(it's a close up of the foot....)

Then we were working on finding out the sex. She worked and worked and worked, but the baby was sitting indian style with the umbilical cord between it's legs. She thought she got a peek, but wanted a second opinion to be sure so she went and got anther lady. While she was out, I started poking at my belly and shaking it to maybe get the baby in a better position because I WAS finding out yesterday. When the other lady came in, she put the thing on my belly and saw this IMMEDIATELY....

IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!

Here is more proof, if you needed more....

Antonio and I are super excited to know for sure. I have thought all along that I was having a boy for SEVERAL reasons, but it was good to confirm it.

So I don't forget, I want to list all the reasons why I thought it was a boy....

1. I had 3 dreams it was a boy and 1 dream it was TWIN boys...glad I wasn't right about the twins.

2. I never had a single migrane when I was pregnant with Tatum. With this pregancy, I get them at least once a week.

3. I never had a since ulcer in my mouth when I was pregnant with Tatum. I have them SO BAD right now.....eerrrr

4. I was sick with Tatum from week 9 to 16, but just in the morning. With this pregnancy, I have been sick since week 6 and it was ALL day sickness til about 15 weeks. Now I just get sick in the morning.

So, there you have it.....we are having a BOY!!! We are discussing a name and think we have the first name down, but are still working on the middle name. We will reveal the WHOLE name soon just to be sure it is the final one so we don't have to listen to anyone's opinion on maybe names. If you have been pregnant, you know how that can be.

Until next time...

April's belly is so flat I was very surprised that this big baby was inside. It was really cool to see the ultrasound and I am so glad you let me come with you. I still can't believe it's a boy cuz I thought for sure it would be a girl.
