So, we had our ultrasound today. It went really well. The baby even yawned while we were looking in and that was just the neatest thing. I love to see those little baby hands and toes and... everything really and to hear the ultrasound tech say that everything looks great.
We only encountered one problem. No, it's not what you're thinking, we couldn't get a good look at the baby's face because the baby wouldn't let us. Those hands and arms never budged from being right over the face. The tech had me go to the bathroom--which I was dying to do anyway because they had me drink 20 oz. of fluid and HOUR before the exam and then they pushed on my stomach with the wand thing. Nope, that didn't work. So, she had me lie on my left side. No go. Then she had me lie on my right side. No difference. Looks as though this baby is going to be stubborn.
Oh yeah, did I mention it's a BOY?!?!?
Yeah, I was sure this was a girl. So much for my intuition huh? Now I'm completely clueless on names. Seriously, not a single name. I'd love to hear some suggestions. I don't want a top 10 popular name though, so don't bother with those.
Ryanna was pretty disappointed about the result of the ultrasound and refused to believe that this is the final say. She said, "Well, I think it's still too early to tell. I'm going to wait a little longer and see." I'm sorry to disappoint my sweet, little girl, but we had a pretty clear shot.
I hope this little boy loves sports or he's going to have to learn to love them because I've never seen a child as obsessed with balls as Owen. He's going to love having someone to play with.
And, we get another ultrasound out of the deal because the tech wants to see the face to make sure everything is okay. Yay for us--three ultrasounds with one baby. We are so spoiled.
