I'm having a...

Boy!

I've wanted to stay Team Green, but DH HAD to know. He said "I will look and just not tell you." But, I know he can't keep a secret, especially from me. So, we agreed on - if we can tell without the u/s tech saying anything we will find out. We told the tech this, and when she got to the potty shot, she turned the screen, said "Now, you're sure you want to look?" I said, yeah, but don't say anything. She turned the screen back, and I said, "That's easy! It's a boy and he's HUNG!" Our son is DEFINITELY not shy!

We weren't going to tell anybody, just keep it between us. But, when we were registering, DH found something he HAD to register for that is obviously for a boy. So, we decided to go ahead and tell...

I'm very excited, but now we have to figure out a name! We had a girl name, but haven't been able to agree on boy names. I *think* we may have one - DH through out Aaron Michael (Michael is his middle name), and I really like it. We wanted classic, biblical names, and this is perfect. So, we're letting it sit for a couple days, but I'm pretty sure that's what we're going with!

  • What a cute story! You wanted to be patient but you just couldn't. Welcome to my world! :-) I've just given up even trying.

    So happy for you. Everything looking good? How have you been feeling?

    I like the name Aaron Michael. Very classic, strong boy name. Good choice!

     It would have been easier to wait if David were on board, but he wasn't.. I'm okay with that now. It's fun knowing that my SON is growing inside me! Everything looked great - I know the tech would have said something if she saw a concern! We see our OB again on Friday, and the only measurement they couldn't get was the 3 blood vessels in the heart - he wouldn't hold still! She said that's nothing to be concerned with, though. Unless they are asleep, it's a really hard one to get!

     I've been feeling good. Occasional wave of nausea, more just when I get around raw meat, cooked red meat, or too much sweet stuff. My energy level is "doable" and the mood swings are less! Oh, and I can feel him kicking all the time! Love it!!

    Dh always says it's a surprise either way, whether you wait or find out early.
