It's a....

We are so excited! We went there today and ended up waiting for quite a while for them to get an open machine.  There were 2 students doing the u/s today.  I guess they have to play "find the body part" once a week and find diff ones.  Today they found the lateral ventricle, cerebellum, 4 chambered heart, placenta, cervix, and kidneys.  The first girl was trying to determine the sex and couldn't do it b/c the baby was lying still and had its leg bones in the way.  The second girl couldn't see it either.  So one went to get an instructor to help them out.  She had me turn on my side to move him around and it worked. He opened his legs up and showed us his "turtle."  Girls are now hamburgers and boys are turtles. Haha.  We have a print out of a profile shot and his turtle.  Homer is SO excited!!  He wanted a little boy both times and especially after seeing how expensive a little girl is. haha.  I'll have an official scan at my dr in a week and a half, so we'll def make sure his turtle doesn't turn into a hamburger!  So i guess it's time to start thinking blue and picking out a name!!  :)

    Congrats on having a boy

  2. Our journey has begun!… secretly though

    If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

    Exciting things going on around here!
