Oh Boy!

As in, we're having a BOY!!! We couldn't be more excited! Sean and I both thought we were having a boy, but it is nice to know for sure. We went in for the ultrasound yesterday and the doctor said everything looked perfect. He was curled up in a little ball and crossing his legs. I was amazed at all of the things we could see through the ultrasound. They checked his lips, heart, kidneys, stomach, nose, hands, feet, bum, veins, etc.! Here’s a short clip of part of the ultrasound. Near the beginning you can see he has his arm up by his face and it looks like he is sucking his thumb --must take after his mamma!

Our ultrasound nurse was awesome… the recording is like 30 minutes long and she labeled a lot of stuff so you can actually tell what you are looking at. The ultrasound made everything feel much more real. I am 20 weeks now-- halfway! Within these past 2 weeks I've really started to feel him moving around. It's a crazy feeling! I keep telling myself I am going to have a son and I feel so proud. I love thinking of Sean being a dad! I also love that I can go shopping and decorate the nursery now :) One cool thing about doing in vitro is I can say I have seen my baby at three days old. Here is a picture we got from the doctor:


Pretty cool huh? You’ve come a long way baby and we can wait for you to join our family!

That's AWESOME! You will be such a good mom Jenny! That is so cool that you have a picture of your son at 3 days old. Babies are such miracles. I'm looking forward to hearing more as the pregnancy progresses!

Yeah for boys! Now our kids can play together. It is so the weirdest feeling when they move, and I think it just gets weirder. It was so crazy when I saw my stomach move because of him, now that is weird!
