The doctor’s exact words: “Don’t paint the room just yet, but it looks like a…”

BOY
Yesterday I had the first trimester screening done, and it includes a Level II ultrasound which is more advanced than the typical sono.  Yes, 13 weeks is very early to be able to distinguish gender, but according to my OB, the doctor who did my ultrasound has never been wrong in his predictions.  I asked him how sure he was, and he said 90%, so those are pretty good odds!  We’ll see if he’s right when we have our 18 to 20 week mega ultrasound.  :) 

In the meantime, Logan is thrilled, and I’m having fun looking at cute baby boy nursery ideas, and seeing all the cute boy clothes which apparently do exist! 

We got two pictures to take home from our ultrasound yesterday!  (By the way, it’s really hard to get a good shot of a sono pic.  Sorry for the shiny-ness!) 

First, the little one’s sweet profile.  Looking much more like a baby these days!

And of course, according to the doctor, the boy parts.  2.  It's a Boy! 
I also got some beautiful Mother’s Day flowers from my family on Sunday.  So sweet!

Well Yay! Firstborn sons are the best!

By the way, we had a sono at 15 weeks with Carter, which they also said was a little early for gender prediction, but the presence of "something" is much easier to see than the presence of nothing. When it's there, there's no denying it. Congrats!
