BIG DAY


yep, it's official(i guess you could say) that we're having a boy. Our little man was pretty stubborn and uncooperative this morning for our actual anatomy ultrasound but we were lucky enough to have a great tech that did our Echo-Cardiogram later in the day.
In our first appt, the baby kept it's legs closed, knees tight together. We were in there for a good party of an hour while she measured everything and the baby just wouldn't change position. We got great pictures of arms and legs and feet and fingers, just no "hot dog" or the "bun"(that's for you aunt shell) to give us an answer!! There were a lot of great shots though, and we got a video to bring home to show everyone! We then went downstairs for our monthly check up and i had to do the Glucose test where you drink the nasty sugar drink and wait an hour. After that was all over we headed up to ultrasound again for our Echo-cardiogram. After the tech was all done she took a "quick peek" to see if she could see anything, and she got an eye full! LOL
I didn't get a chance to see, i was laying on my left side away from the screen but Greg was looking and he said there was def. something between the legs. I really would have like to have seen, but the baby turned when i tried to look over my shoulder. I'm excited, just would actually positive "pee-pee" proof to look at! When i asked for reassurance on the sex, the tech told me "you are good to buy boy things, just maybe leave the tags on" Sooooooo, i'm really hoping she's right at this point!
Maggie and the rest of the family is thrilled. It seemed that everyone else already knew we were having a boy! Maggie is putting up quite the fight for "Barney" when we told her we should start calling the baby Fionn now. She said she and Mema already named the baby and they would be sad if we called the baby Fionn. When we explained she could call the baby "barney" as a nickname she was adament that "barney" likes his name already! lol, poor girl. I'm sure she'll come around. In the spring she wouldn't even talk about a baby boy, it was a girl. Ever since we told her this time we were having a baby, she's insisted it's a boy!!
I'm beat for now, it was a long day with lots of belly prodding that wore us both out! More soon, i promise!!
