It's A....

Boy.




Ken and I are so excited. We both had parental instincts that it was a boy- but the reassurance felt good. Courtney, babe, kudos for holding out. You are stronger than I.
(This is me 2 weeks ago. You get bigger everyday with these babies.)

Our ultrasound went great. She said he is healthy as can be. Strong heart- good bone structure- and a porker to boot! She said he weighs a pound already! After we did some research we found a lot of babies at 20 weeks weigh 1/2 to 3/4 of a pound. Our little guy is one full pound. That makes me feel good. I admit I had concerns with the medication I was taking for the tumor that he'd be small or frail or something would be wrong. But, nope! He's a Chubby McButter Butt.
The ultrasound technician moved our due date up to July 9th (from the 17th... 8 whole days! Go, Patty! Go, Patty!) and said he is still a big baby! Yippee!
He is breached. Or facing the wrong way right now- but with all the moving he does all the time I've got a feeling he is finding his way to the proper position.
I've been feeling his little quivers and slides since February 4th. Last night Ken felt him kick for the first time and man, you should have seen my honey's face light up. Now, of course, I've got Ken glued to my stomach and I can't do dishes or anything because Ken just wants to lay there and wait for the giblet to move. It's quite adorable.

So- tonight for date night- we are heading out to scour boy stuff. Oh so fun!

Did I so not guess boy?? Yay!!!! I'm so excited for you guys. I'm always right when I guess. Now give me til your due date to guess the name. I'm not kidding, my sister wouldn't tell the name of her baby til she was born and I guessed it before I even knew it. How insane is that? I have special powers I think.
