The BIG Reveal

So...this is what we've been up to the last 12 weeks:
Look at those great legs!

I like this shot because you can see the umbilical cord wrapped around the leg.

Getting ready to suck his thumb?

No more photos please!
And, even though we are only twelve weeks--the ultra sound tech said that with 95% certainty that it's a BOY! Can you believe they can tell so early? Other interesting tidbits--baby's heart rate was 162 beats a minute. They could even tell that the egg came from my right ovary. We also listened to the blood flow from my ovaries to make sure that everything was okay. So, our official due date is August 4--only three days away from my own birthday. What a great present!
