IT'S A .......!

BOY!

For Baby #2, we are evening out our numbers and joining the blue team!

Although we truly wouldn't be surprised if we found out next month it was a girl. The boy parts looked like an umbilical cord to me and Johnny swears he saw three lines. We can't verify this because the technician forgot to record the gender part of the ultrasound. So we are pretty sure (and excited) about a little boy, but thinking there is a very slight chance for girl :).

I'll scan in the ultrasound pics so you can see for yourself.

Anyways,we are pretty excited about Baby Boy Parker. I already have a list of boy names at least a page long and I am only to the H's in the name database. I actually had more boy names that I liked this time so it will be fun to put one to use!

Here are a few tidbits about the pregnancy so far:
  • Everything looked perfect on the ultrasound! He is even measuring one day ahead of schedule.
  • I have more cravings this time around. They change every day. The list includes: mustard (which I have always hated), strawberries, and bacon.
  • I am 19 weeks and I have only gained 4 pounds. (very excited about this, but I didn't start at my ideal weight anyway so I am not supposed to gain as much)
  • This little guy is a mover! He likes to kick Lily. Hopefully he is just saying hello, and it isn't a sign of things to come.
  • My blood pressure is staying low! Woohoo!
  • Between my research study appointments and my regular appointments - they have gotten my blood on the first try at least half of the time - major miracle for me. (I have been drinking water and exercising like crazy to enlarge my nonexistent veins!)
