19 Weeks Or ?

Big stuff going on today. We had our major ultrasound this morning. They check all the major organs and spinal cord to be sure they are normal. I was nervous to find out anything that might be serious or need surgery. They gave us the thumbs up! I was also worried because I still haven't gained weight. I wanted to hear that Peanut was the right size. Apparently the baby is big enough to be considered 20 weeks along. 11 ounces for our squirt!!! So they think our new expected due date is more like Jan. 28 instead of Feb. 5.
And finally we found out the gender:

It's a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Boy, boy, boy!!!!

How lucky are we? To get pregnant. See our healthy baby. Find out it is the sex we wanted. We are thrilled, excited and so very grateful. I have been on the phone all day calling or leaving messages for my whole family and friends.

I will post pics later when I figure out how to keep my scanner from eating them. But trust me we saw the boy issue equipment loud & clear. So online Aunties & Uncles now you know!!!
