My Chinese Gender Chart was RIGHT!

Today we had our 19 week appointment and our anatomy scan.  This morning I was a bit nervous but it only lasted a moment, which of course scared my crazy self.  I was worried because I wasn't worried, for the first time ever I felt confident going into my appointment.  With V at my side we walked into a empty waiting room at about 2:30 this afternoon.  Soon we were headed into the ultrasound room.  I was weighed and had gained a respectable few pounds and soon the dr was in and the ultrasound machine on!

Dr Wonderful did a wonderful job of showing us so much, pointing out chambers of the brain and the heart, all the bones etc.  It was wonderful!  (how many times can I say wonderful, huh?)  Anyway the long and sort of it is baby is a healthy BOY!!!!  He is measuring exactly 19 weeks!

We went out to the in laws and shared the news (we decorated a box in pink and blue paper and put inflated blue balloons inside so they popped out when mom and dad in law opened it, a smashing success!).  It's been a wonderful and long day and I'm headed off to bed!


  1. Hurray for a baby boy! I'm glad you had such a good day, that the baby is healthy and doing well, and that you enjoyed your evening with the in laws. What a fun way to tell them the gender! Yay for my future nephew! :)

  2. Yay! So exciting, somehow I guessed boy for you too! Congrats! :)

  3. I love the balloon idea for your in-laws! So exciting! I love all the pics you are posting on FB... June seems so far away! I can't wait for Baby Ive to make his debut into the world :)
