It's a Boy...

For those of you who have commented on not being able to read the ultrasound, I figured I would give you a little help. It is a bottom view. Hope this helps.

So we had another doctors appointment today and got some exciting news we weren't expecting! I'm only 16 weeks (and 4 days) along and we knew that you don't usually get to find out the gender until 20 weeks, so we weren't hopeful we were going to get another ultrasound today. We were planning on doing some begging though. So, when the doctor came in to see us, he had his med student check the heartbeat and then said "hmmm, I wonder if that's a boy or a girl heartbeat." We both looked at each other hopefully thinking, "here's our chance to ask him!" and one of us said "that's what we're wondering!" So then, a miracle happened and the doctor said "well, do you want to take a look?" and we both said "YES!" So we headed over to the ultrasound room and got all set up. He prefaced by telling us that circumstances would have to be just right to be able to tell and so not to get our hopes up. So he started looking around, couldn't really see anything, and then all of a sudden got a good shot of the baby from underneath and told us "well, it's a boy!" We were so excited. He then rewound the ultrasound and replayed the moment when the baby lifted his leg and gave the doctor a perfect view (which is what we got the picture of). He then pointed out, "see, there's the scrotum, and there's the wiener!" Very technical terms, I know. So yeah, we're both really excited (though I was convinced it was going to be a girl) to have a little boy in 5 months. We were so excited that TJ decided to go and buy him his first outfit, but then we ended up getting two :) So here are some pictures!

First Baby Present!!

So I already have something to update the blog with! My awesome friend Andi from the social work program (she's now living in Idaho Falls working) came to visit me and TJ this weekend which was so much fun! I'm definitely a little lonely here and miss my friends so much! Anyway, so when she got here, she had a surprise for me! A diaper bag! It's so pretty too. We had looked at them last time she was here and she told me she was going to get it for me but I didn't know it would be so soon! It's by Vera Bradley, totally washable (and lined on the inside too so it's easy to wipe out), full of pockets to store things in, and came with a changing pad too! Anyway, I was so excited and grateful to Andi. She's great :)
