Baby Boy Sonogram

This pregnancy is glorious.  I have no words to describe how incredible it is to be creating life, especially because there was a time when we weren't sure if we would be able to or not.  He is growing.  He is healthy.  He is doing everything he needs to.  I am richly blessed.

It's definitely a boy!  Here is the proof:

Here are his eye orbits.  She was checking for the bone behind the nose.  A missing bone is an indication of downs syndrome but it was there!

The top two pictures are his legs.  The bottom left picture is his arm.  The bottom right picture is his spine.

Top left is his orbits.  Top right is his palate, which was all intact so no worries of a cleft palate.  Bottom left is eye orbits again, and bottom right is "thumbs up!"

His sweet feet!!!  I am in love with baby feet.  Seriously.  It's an illness.  Hard to believe these feet are the size of a kidney bean!

His sweet profile, and his arm up by his head.  James sleeps with his arm up by his head, and that is how this baby was a lot of the sonogram.  So sweet!

What I love most is this picture - it's a 3-D picture of his sweet face.  I have no idea who he looks like, but it is so neat to see some of his features.

And two more pictures of his profile.

Miracles do happen.

20 Weeks - Yipes!

I have done a terrible job blogging about this pregnancy.  Maybe it has something to do with 2 children, a full time job at home, and everything else that comes with life.  Nevertheless, this baby is just as important, loved, and anticipated as the other two.  It has been a much more difficult pregnancy in terms of sickness and headaches, but we have managed to push through it.

And we found out today that we're having a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The funny thing is I would have bet money it was a girl.  Why, you ask?  I have no idea.  Whenever I thought of the baby, I always called it "her."  And I could only think of girl names.  And I could only picture Sariah with a baby sister.  There was nothing scientific that told me we were having a girl - it was just complete intuition.  What I love about this whole situation is my mother and mother-in-law have known the entire time it was a boy.  Whenever I would tell someone I was having a girl, they would quietly smile and chuckle to themselves because they knew differently.

Not the greatest picture, but here is me at 20 weeks!  More thoughts about this pregnancy to come, including sonogram pictures...
