And it's a. . . .

HEALTHY BABY BOY!!! 

I am SO excited.  The gender really made no difference to me as long as baby is healthy.  You hear all these horror stories, so I'll admit, I was pretty nervous.  Ok, extremely nervous.  I refused to have any sort of genetic testing done, I just don't see the point.  I would never terminate based on a diagnosis and did not want to spend my entire pregnancy in a state of worry.  However, at this scan (17 1/2 weeks), they measured everything, checked that major organs were functioning, checked for cleft palate, checked out the bones, counted fingers and toes, checked weight and heart rate, etc.  Amazing what they can do.  Everything is going great.  I feel incredibly blessed!

Hilarious.  Baby will hate me for this later;-)
Amazing how you can clearly see bones!
The only 3D image.  The doc said baby's face looks a little crazy 3D until he's older so she left the face off!

Now it's time to get on the ball.
Think of a name.
Shop.
Plan.
Oh My.

Congratulations to you momma! What a lovely blessing :)

I have no doubt even though there's a lot to do, it'll get done in plenty of time!

In the mean time, just try to enjoy the whole process :)
