It's a BOY!!

Our 20wk appointment was Friday where they did a Fetal Assessment Ultrasound. Basically, just taking pictures and measurements of the baby's brain, heart, spine, organs, etc. And at the end of all that, they revealed the gender! We (me, Tim, my mom, Emily, and Gay on speakerphone) were all in shock when she said boy! Everyone had psyched themselves up to believe there would be a girl in my belly! We are so happy though! He looks to be growing and developing just as he should! Now if we could only pick a name! Wow, it's so tough!! To realize I am now more than half way seems crazy to me. It still feels like I'm dreaming! I have been feeling some movement... which is not at all what I had expected it to be like, and is easily missed. Everyone told me it would feel like butterfly flutters - to me, it feels like bubbles. I usually only notice it when I'm at home - I guess because I can be still, so the nights & weekends are a good time to pay attention for them. I guess the last half will start to go by pretty fast since we're now into football season and then the holidays... January will be here before we know it!

Definitely all boy!

Lovely profile :)

The yawn was so adorable to watch in slow motion!

Kicking feet!
