We had our big ultrasound today and it was so exciting! She was certain it's a boy, and pointed out his "business", as she called it, a few different times. It's so good to know who's in there now, he has more of an identity now (we can stop referring to him as "it")...and the best part is I can go shopping now!...which I did immediately after the appointment of course. He is weighing in at 11 ounces and his little foot measures a little over one inch long. We got to see all his organs and his heart beating away...she said they are all looking good and she measured everything and looked for all his bones...we also saw him yawn, making sucking motions with his mouth, hit his knee, move his arm up around his face, and man was he ever kicking!! Made me sort of glad I can't feel it yet, he was really going at it! A few people told me to drink some caffeine beforehand to make sure the baby would move around plenty so we could see everything...no more caffeine for him!! He was all over the place. I will try to get a couple of the pictures scanned in soon...it was so amazing to get to see him!
