We had our ultrasound today to get a sneak peak (or an amazingly detailed look) at Baby #2. Both Scott and I felt genuinely excited for either gender - we love raising a boy and we would love to have a girl. While I had quite a few "girl" dreams, this baby is definitely a boy. Hooray! (Truth be told, it's probably better that my dreams didn't become reality as they were all "its a girl...with no brain" or "its a girl...with only 3 limbs" type dreams.) The best part is that this little guy looks wonderfully formed and is growing completely on track. Since Owen was so tiny, we'll have another ultrasound at 34 weeks to see how things are going, but it's a great relief to know things look great so far.
It's really amazing to think that this baby is only 10 oz right now, but we can already see every finger, rib, vertebrae, and kidney. The tech was measuring things like the space between parts of his brain and how thick his skin is a the base of his neck. Awesome. Beautiful.
True to form, the little guy was supper active, practically running in place and doing stomach crunches. I haven't felt any movement yet, but it looks like I'm in for a bumpy ride once he gets a little bigger. My ribs are already cringing just thinking about what the next 5 months will bring. But we are excited to know that after we get through the next four or five months, we'll get to meet another little boy.
P.S. Don't hold your breath waiting for a name announcement. That will show up on the same day this baby does. =)
