The Results Are In!!!

We are officially...TEAM BLUE!!! We are super psyched and couldn't be happier! The ultrasound went GREAT! Baby was very cooperative, and the tech got all the measurements really quickly. When I asked, she said he was measuring right on track. He is already about 9 in from head to toe! She said his spine, heart, and brain all look good. She also said his femur is the right length and he has a strong nasal bone (problems could be an indication of Downs Syndrome). We met with the doctor immediately after the ultrasound, and he confirmed that everything looks great. He tried to listen to the baby's heartbeat with the doppler, but the baby kept dodging him. We'd hear 3 beats and then it would go to static. The doctor was so funny. He joked, "I'm not going to chase you around...we know you're fine, because we just saw you!" Finally, he found the baby way up to the right of my belly button. The doctor was like, "What are you doing way up here?" haha...our baby is already so smart! ;)

I will never forget the look on Matt's face when the tech said, "It's a boy!" Matt jumped out of his chair and said, "It's a boy?!!" He said after the u/s it finally feels real (he wasn't letting himself get his hopes up too high after what happened last time). Now he's talking about painting the nursery bright blue and has been looking at cribs online. Men are so cute!

Anyhow, I know I haven't been updating my blog much lately. I'm going to try to write at least 1-2 times per week. Until next time...thanks for reading, and thank you so much for all your prayers and support!
