Drum Roll Please...

Today was our scheduled Ultrasound that we've been looking forward to! Mentioned at our first doctors appointment was the Big U/S in early March that would be detailed and when we'd be able to find out the important question; "What's the baby's sex?" Well today we got our answer!

Just for a little background... I'm now coming up on 19 weeks pregnant (for those who haven't yet had kids and don't know, it's out of a 40 week pregnancy). John and I are seeing the first signs of me "showing" which to be honest, right now isn't that exciting- I kinda just feel chubby. I have noticed the waist on my pants shrinking and I've resorted to "rigging" my button with a hair tie in order to give me that much more comfort room. When I look down, I see a little belly and it even obscures my view of my belt but I'm not sure it's that obvious to anyone else (except for John since he's always checking out my body).


So now for the fun part... I'll share a few pictures from this morning's Ultra Sound! The baby was normal and healthy according to the woman who gave the baby a "physical" as she called it. All the heart chambers were developed, the spine and the ribs present. According to the latest measurement, my due date is right on! All in all, it looks like we're going to be the proud parents of a healthy baby!!!


Alien Baby! It's a Skull shot.

If you're not too sure what you're looking at, I did a little labelling but I'll spell it out for you anyhow. The little arrow is pointing to the "external hardware" and actually the unattached white blur to the left is a hand... I don't understand guys but it seems the fetish begins VERY early! We're having a little boy! You can imagine "Daddy's" excitement! And as to that old "fighter pilot curse"... Not this time!!!

A girl, of course! We Rausers are incapable of producing male offspring. Just ask my dad!
Congrats on your little boy!

Guess that means we need to have a girl to balance the equation.
