Ultrasound -- It's a...

SURPRISE! The moment came for us to decide if we wanted to know, and we stuck to our guns. We'll wait until August. The tech measured me at exactly 15 weeks, so my new official due date is August 12, not too far off from the original estimation, but as the tech mentioned, a week makes a huge difference at the end. :)

BB2.0 is not as photogenic as Elsie was, though is totally cute and laid back with legs crossed at the ankles. Actually, s/he was camera shy and kept getting lower and lower, moving behind my incision scar, making the poking and prodding with the ultrasound tool very uncomfortable. Here's the best picture from our study:

I'm not sure how I'm going to make it through the next several months blogging about this baby and not committing to he or she in pronoun use. So I think I will just alternate back and forth with masculine and feminine pronouns from post to post, but not in the same post.

So, before I go, I want to tell you that this morning I got Elsie out the door since Eli was at Bible study, and on the way out I said adios to the cats, "Bye, boys." And Elsie, from her carrier, said, "Buh buh." And yes, it was followed by other buhs, BUT she recognized that I made the sound. She is so cute. :)

Geeze, one minute I want it to be a boy and the other minute I want it to be a girl. pfffft. Like it matters anyway, God knows what the gender is! Either way, it's going to be a blessed little baby!
