Baby Boy was being extremely difficult during the ultrasound. He kept moving and jumping all over the place. I told the tech, "He is just like his daddy, very stubborn!" Blue would turn away from the camera at all costs. He better get used to pictures!
When the tech went to look for the sex the first time, Blue had his little legs shut as tight as could be. She continued on taking pictures of the rest of the body, but wherever she put her fancy wand, he put his little hands. I joked that he was going to be an artist or a massage therapist because he had something going on with his hands. If she wanted pictures of his face, he put his hands up. If she wanted pictures of his belly, he put his hands there. I couldn't help but smile. Unfortunately though, we didn't get pictures of everything we needed because of his stubbornness. So, we will try again next month. (Imagine my disappointment when I was told I would HAVE to get another ultrasound next month to remeasure some things).
At the end she went down to look to see what sex Blue was. Keep in mind, we have been waiting five years for the little one. We have had very vivid dreams and visions, and we were about 98% sure it was a boy, but we wanted proof. At first she said, "I'm 60% sure its a boy." 60%?? That is NOT very sure. She looked and poked and checked a bit more and moved her estimate up to 85%, but she suggested not painting the nursery yet.
We are thrilled and excited! We know his name is Steven. This is Matt's first name (he goes by his middle name) and Matt's Dad's name. We are unsure of the middle name. We have it narrowed down to 3, but we have toyed with not settling on anything for sure until we meet him. And we are still trying to decide on a Portuguese middle name as well, something we have planned on doing since before we even met each other. Thanks for all of your support and love! We are beaming parents!
ps. The cord for the scanner is still MIA. Man, moving is the pits! Hopefully, grandmas and great grandmas are getting antsy for ultrasound pics, so if no cord can come up this week, I am going to buy one! Hopefully soon.
