My apologies for not coming back and posting right away with the ultrasound results. I wanted to make sure we told family and friends first in person or on the phone before it went up on the web. So when we got to the ultrasound on Friday, I asked the technician to let me know before she went down in that region so I could look away. I wanted it to be a complete surprise for me and I knew I would be able to spot a boy quickly if that's what it was. First she checked the heart beat and we looked at the baby's face. The technician then said she was going to go look at the legs and to look away just in case. So I closed my eyes...
Technician: OK, I know what it is. Are you ready?
Technician: It's a little boy.
I'm sure I looked something like this. Although my hands went up over my face so there is no way to tell for sure. But yes, I was completely shocked. I had myself convinced that this was going to be a girl. The important thing is that baby boy looks great and is healthy. But knowing that this is our last child and I will not have a girl makes it a little hard. I'll be honest, I cried. A lot. As it sinks in a little more, I'm getting better.
So that's the deal. I will have 4 crazy boys running around the house. Say a prayer for me. :)
