Had our monthly ultrasound today up at the hospital, and he was co-operating (slightly), which made a nice change :)
Got a great shot of the heart, all 4 chambers, all looking good, HB came in at 147, lower than our usual 160 range, but the tech explained that's completely normal. It was the same tech who did our gender scan on Saturday, and he was fabulous.
We finally got to see his face, and the tech switched to 3D for awhile, although I thought 3D would be awful, I fell head over heels in love. He was yawning, and stuck his tongue out, and it was fabulous to see. He's weighing in at 1lb 2oz, and the tech called him a bruiser, hence the title.
I'm so, so happy right now, I feel overwhelmed with love, and am so grateful that things seem to be going well, I can actually imagine getting to hold him in a few short months. Can you believe we only have 18 weeks to go now!
I'm still debating when to tell family and friends, only DH, myself, you lucky readers, and one friend know it's a boy. We were getting a lot of pressure from my husbands family to find out and tell the sex, and I can only imagine that once they know it's a boy, the name pressure will begin.
We do have the name picked out, and a few close friends know it, but we are still not 100% decided on it, we are 99.8%, and to be honest I don't want all the family commenting on it.
My brother-in-law just had a little girl, and they changed the name 4-5 times before she was born, and the family all stated their opinions. Some in favour of names, other names got ridiculed, including the name they actually went with in the end. I can't imagine being able to tolerate that, I was raised to only say/do unto others as I would like done to myself, and if you don't have something nice to say, keep it to yourself. I think that it's your child to name as you please, the name may not be my cup of tea - but who am I to judge!
In other news, I finished the babies blanket last night, so now I will start on a little hat I think - I am enjoying finally getting to knit for my own baby :)
