I went in for a quick ultrasound yesterday after my doc appointment. Sadly, Shane wasn't able to be there. Sucky thing with his job: he cant really just get off early, unless its an emergency. But I did have my friend Penny there with me. Well, the doc put the dopplar on my stomach and right away we were in the right spot. I saw what the baby was with no prob, but he went on explaining all the body parts we were seeing. My doc is a really nice guy who gets very excited about finding out the gender, almost as excited as you are. It makes it more fun.
Well, right when he pointed between the legs and announced. "And that is a ... BOY..." the baby spread its legs WAY out and made sure we could really see that he was a little boy, right on cue. Yup everyone. We are having another little:
And right after we saw that, we saw the little guy start to pee. I know, that sounds weird...but it was cool to see. A little stream going out for a bit, then stopping. It was just cool...seeing my baby not only there, but already functioning and living.
I have to admit, I was sad. Shane and I were both really hoping for our little girl. Its funny. All growing up I just had this feeling like I would have daughters. It was never a question in my mind that I would. Now I am having my second son. I guess thats proof that things don't always go as you are so sure they will...but yes, we ARE excited. For one...we get to save a heck of a lot of money on clothes. There are only a few things we are needing for this second kiddo, all of which are on my baby registry if you are curious (Mainly a new breast bump since my first one got lost...a pack and play...lots and lots of diapers...a new play gym since ours was old and deplete...and yeah.)
But for two...I do love our little boy. Rylend is such an amazing kid, so full of happiness and love. I am very excited to have another sweet little one like him. And now he gets that brother every boy loves having. My family was the same way: two boys then me. And my brothers were always close growing up. So this will be another great adventure.
My belly is poking out more. Rylend laughs at it when he sees it, then lifts up his own shirt to show off HIS belly. Such a funny kid...
Now we are onto the project of picking a name...we have a few we are kind liking. We have a few months left though to really decide. Haha we shall see...
Ok, thats it for this post! Here are all the pics from yesterday! ENJOY!!!!!
You might not be able to see it too well, but he is looking right at the camera in this one. His face is on the left. there are two dark circles for his eyes, a white bump where his nose is, and then a dark circle under. His mouth was open. Aw...I love it.
His little profile. Sadly, it blurred a bit. Maybe we will get a better one next time.
You can see one arm, then his fingers of the other hand above it. He was running his fingers around in the fluid. It was cute.
These are both pics of my belly I took yesterday just before my doc appt. 17.5 weeks along. ooo
And here is the link to our registry. Any help would be VERY nice, but please, money is tight. If you cant get us anything, do not stress about it. We will make due!
