It’s A…

Well at our appointment on Thursday, we found out that we are having a…BOY! We are very excited to know now a little bit more about who is in there! There was definitely no doubt in the tech’s eyes that he was for sure a boy! It was cool to be able to see him in there and he has gotten much larger than the previous u/s we’ve had. He was sucking his thumb, and even had the hiccups. He didn’t enjoy the u/s probe being pushed into my belly, so he was quite squirmy. Based on the measurements that the tech took, he is measuring (gestationally) about 3 days behind our due date…which is pretty uncommon. For the most part, (from what I’ve read in my books and online) babies are usually 1-2 weeks behind gestationally at the mother’s 20 week scan. That being said, he weighed 10 ounces and is right on track weight wise…looks like we’re going to have a big boy on our hands – and in my tummy!

Tim took Friday off work and we ventured up to Orland Park to do our registries. We know there is going to be lots needed for this baby and so we wanted to get a jump on registering now, so we would have the time to add and change things in the next few weeks. We ended up registering primarily at Babies R Us, and then also did a smaller registry at Target. The whole process was pretty overwhelming because there are so many different options to choose from when it comes to diapers, wipes, bottles, pacifiers, etc. It was a lot of fun, though, and we are really happy with the stuff that we picked out! We – well mostly just I – am trying to decide if I am really sold on the bedding we picked out. The options weren’t as great for boys and I’m just not sure it’s what we’ll end up going with for sure…I’ve been doing some more research today to see if there’s something I like better. It seems there are a lot more options on the websites than they have in stores, which makes sense, but makes it difficult when you’re in the store registering!

I go back to the doctor on Wednesday morning to have a follow up to my 20 week scan since he wasn’t in when I was there on Thursday. The tech said he’ll basically just review everything that was found on the u/s on Thursday. She did say, though, that he is growing right on track and his heart had all the ventricles developed and working properly, as well as the brain functioning and growing as it should be. Hopefully he’ll stay on track with his growing and can maybe grace us with his presence before Christmas, like I’m really hoping for at this point!

And now…here are the pictures from our 20 week scan!!
