It's a...

Haahahaha you thought I was going to tell you, didn't you?

Sorry ladies but I will not say what baby is. Just know it is either a boy or a girl, for sure.

The u/s went very well. Baby is measuring 17w6d as of yesterday and all the parts in the right place, all fingers and toes are there. The only thing is we need to go back in three weeks for them to check out baby's heart again. It seems baby was just too small to see all the necessary stuff to rule out any problems with the heart. It's totally routine for doc's to make people come back when baby is being uncooperative.

My mom and my sister were there which was a treat. The u/s tech told us baby's gender before they came into the room. Lucky us. So the secret is still safe! Now we just have to decide on names for our kidlet and we'll be all set (yup, you'll have to wait until after delivery on that one too).

Just know our babe is perfectly fine and healthy and the doc thinks baby's heart is fine too but they just have to see us again to be sure. :)

My next ob appt is next wednesday and I'll get to hear baby again. We are so lucky! I can't wait until we find a name for our little one. Soooo exciting.

Congrats on a healthy baby!!! That is such great news...and isn't it awesome to see that little thing on the screen, moving around! Such a relief and really takes some anxiousnous out of the picture.

Have a great week.

YAAAAAAY! Glad all is well in baby land....and I hope you guys have so much fun picking names and really getting ready with all of the cute pinks or blues. My guess is a little boy!

Yep. Did not think you were telling us either.

Glad baby is looking okay though.

Glad to hear everything is going just fine with your little one! It is so amazing to see your baby on U/S. Guess you're keeping us in suspense until February... I'm looking forward to finding out whether it's a boy or girl!

Congrats on your little guy (typed that without realizing, perhaps a sign?? Haha!) or gal being perfect-0!!!
