The Big Reveal

It's a BOY! Yes, another one. At least that's what the sonogram lady said. I will take her word for it because I really couldn't tell much from that angle. He did not want to open his legs so it made it harder to tell but she seemed confident that there was definitely something there that did not belong on a girl.

I am so glad to have the sonogram over. They gave me instructions yesterday not to pee for 2 hours before the sonogram and then to drink 40 oz of water to insure I had a full bladder. I'm not sure who they are performing sonograms on but my bladder does not require 40 oz of water to become full. I drank about 30 oz most of which were in the last hour before the appointment so I wouldn't suffer too badly. I dreaded the coming in with a full bladder part but she was very quick taking her measurements and they even had a bathroom directly outside the sonogram room specifically for sonogram patients.

Then I got to lay back and enjoy the rest of the sonogram. As far as I could see everything looked fine but I will see my doctor Monday to go over the results. It measured me at 18 weeks 5 days which equates to an April 18th due date.

Congratulations! When I had my 20 week appointment, they told me to drink water and not to pee and when I came in, the let me sit in the waiting room for 20 minutes before telling me that the ultrasound machine was broken. 20 minutes of holding in pee for NOTHING!!

Oh congrats! Boys are so much fun! My Chicken will forever be the middle and only boy. He's doomed, but he gets extra special time with Daddy and that'll make up for being sandwiched between two girls...at least I keep telling myself that!

We were in your area this weekend, and I thought about e-mailing for that coffee date. But, we were so swamped that there just wasn't time. I thought about you on Thursday, though, as we were drivingin, praying for you and your sonogram. Congratulations on the wonderful news!

Congrats! Not that I'm into astrology, but Aries men are THE BEST. If he's born in April you should have a great guy on your hands.
