oh boy

well its offical... baby is a boy! this proves two things; a: the chinese birthing chart is crap and b: i have absolutely no maternal instincts (i was sure it was a girl) however i couldn't be happier. and suprisingly neither could bryson. we went in for our ultrasound tuesday and it was such a cool experience. what is not cool is that they make you drink a whole bunch of water and then press on your bladder for a half hour. the first the nurse said when we started the ultrasound is "oh my you have a tiny bladder!" no? really? i almost peed on the table. after that she found the baby and the first thing we saw was his little pee pee. i think he was excited to show it to us because we have been calling him a girl for the past five months. oops. he even grabbed himself at one point. isn't he classy? it was so fun seeing him kicking and moving although i still couldn't feel any of it :( the dr said i should in a couple of weeks. the little man was bent in half most of the time so the lady doing the ultrasound couldn't get a good look at his heart so we get to go back in four weeks for another ultrasound. which is fine by me! just this time i won't drink so much dang water. 16oz is a lot for someone who's bladder is the size of a pea! now we just have to get ready for the little guy to come!

I go in for my ultrasound tomorrow. I'm convinced I'm having a boy, so maybe my maternal instinct will be wrong too. We shall see.
I'm very happy for you guys. I can totally see you with a little boy!! Congrats!

Congrats! That's so fun! I don't think we'll ever have a boy. We're just forming a fast-pitch softball team.
Ultrasounds are the best. Lucky you get another one! I thought I was having a boy both times and I got two girls.

I'm so jealous you get another ultrasound! It's so fun to see them! I'm excited you are having a boy! Any names picked out yet? I swear boy names are harder but I think we finally have it narrowed down! :) Anyway, congrats again!

he is so cute! I just love him already. How cute of us to all have boys. I'm telling you he looks much smaller than my child, I think he might be a giant!
