Chris and I went to our OBGYN on Tuesday, the morning after I arrived back in Wilmington from Cincinnati. We were both excited to learn the sex of the baby, though we both already had a feeling it was a boy. The ultrasound tech was really great, and gave us the photos below to keep.
Besides finding out the sex, we also learned that everything else was intact--10 fingers and 10 toes, one heart, etc. According to the ultrasound, he is in the 84th percentile for size--but you wouldn't know if from the size of my belly! He's also about 5 1/2 inches and .48 pounds. Where does all that fit in there?
I started feeling a few tiny kicks last week. They can't be felt from the outside yet, but I can feel them periodically inside. It's a nice, reassuring feeling.
We were thrilled to find out the news. We would have been thrilled about either a boy or a girl, but it was exciting to know for sure and to get to see the little guy, even if he does look a little like the Terminator. Now we just need to get used to calling the baby a "him" instead of an "it".
