We had the ultrasound today! So the polls are closed for guessing what flavor it is, now we know :) Everything looks good with the baby for which we are very grateful. It was really cool to get to actually see this baby! I’ve been able to feel it a little bit for the past week or so, and so we were super excited to actually see it. We got some pictures which Eric scanned into the computer so we could post them here. See how good you would do as a sonographer!
In addition to finding out that our baby is healthy and growing well, we did get to find out the gender. We know we’ve been really mean to make you wait all the way to the end of the post to find out since that’s probably what you were waiting to see! See if you can tell…
Yup, the poll was absolutely wrong about the gender of our baby – we’re having a little boy! He was very cooperative and was totally spread eagle. No doubt about what kind of baby that is! We’ve decided to call him Gerund until he’s born, because we really like the name, but we realize how cruel it could be to name our kid that for real. As we discuss more names and settle on other favorites we’ll post them and take feedback on them. We’re really excited to get to meet our son in February!
For those of you who are interested we’ve posted the video of the ultrasound on google video. We know it’s really long but we figure there are some people who’d really like to see it, and if you don’t care… you won’t watch it :) You can see it here:
