Gender Reveal!

Thursday was the magic day I had been waiting for for weeks, the day of our big ultrasound!

Mike met me at the doctor's office and we were quickly escorted into the ultrasound room. The tech asked if wanted to find out the gender and I answered  "yes!!" She laughed and I explained that we are not patient enough to wait! So she set to work. Of course, she started all of her measurements at the head and worked her way down. This ultrasound is called an "anatomy scan" for a reason. They measure everything and check for any possible problems. So these measurements take a while, I was going crazy just waiting for her to work her way down. It's always wonderful to see baby moving around and from the very beginning, baby was not cooperating. The tech had a hard time doing her measurements because baby was being so wiggly!

So finally, she got to the part that we wanted to see and it was as clear as day. Before the the tech could even finish writing her "I'm a ...." note on the screen, I knew!

It's a boy!
His profile

We're thrilled! We both come from families with an older sister and a younger brother. It just seems right. Our little family will be complete! He will be the first grandson on both sides.

His name will be Connor Michael. Don't ask me where the name came from, we've just always loved the name Connor. We agreed that it would be our boy's name from the time we got married.

He is measuring big, about a week and a half ahead but we still expect that my c-section will be scheduled for the end of October.

He gave the tech quite a job trying to get a good view of his heart, he refused to lay in the correct position and then kept putting his arm in the way. I think we have another stubborn child on our hands!

It feels more real now that we can call him Connor. October does not seem that far away. Although there is a lot less to do than there was with Grace, we still need to plan a nursery and get clothes for him.

I can't wait to meet our son!
