IT'S A....


The arrow is pointing at his little boy parts!! We have proof!

I went in today to do the ultrasound and have a visit with Dr. Parker. Their ultrasound room was huge and super hi-tech. It was so awesome!! They stay really up to date with their equipment, so they have the latest and greatest of ultrasound machines (they can even do the 3-D ultrasounds! But insurance doesn't cover those and they cost like $80). Instead of having to watch the ultrasound on the tiny little screen that you usually see on tv and in movies, they had a huge flat screen monitor that came down from the ceiling that we (my mom and Aubrey and "aunt" Lydia came with me) got to watch it on. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life! I wanted to cry. We could see his face (it totally looks like he got Ray's lips and my nose, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see!!) and his heart and his brain and his spine and EVERYTHING. Seriously--so cool. I saw his little weinie and got so excited!! I knew it was going to be a boy!! We got some really great pictures and the ultrasound tech (who, by the way, was amazing--she has a BA in Diagnostic Imaging and she was really great about explaining everything that she was doing and why) even made me a DVD of the whole thing for only $5!!

She misspelled "foot", but you get the idea! (She went back and fixed it, but this picture turned out better)

Shazam!! My baby boy is a freakin rock star!!

He is so cute!! Looks like he's blowing bubbles in this one...

After the ultrasound we visited with Dr. Parker (an awesome, old, grandfatherly guy--super nice). He said everything looks great--the baby looks normal and healthy. Dr. Dewey never did recalculate the AFP, so Dr. Parker had his nurse get ahold of the lab to make sure they do it. I should get a call pretty soon with the new results. He said that it looks like it will come back in the good/normal range with the correct due date though, so we're not too worried about it. Even as it is with incorrect information, it's only a 1 in 100 chance.

Anyway, he is so cute! I'm so excited!!
