It's a... Oh yeah it's definitely a Boy!!

Yes, it's a boy! We are having a little boy! Or that's what the U/T tech told us.. And it was pretty clear that its a boy, kinda hard not to miss!

Anyways... when we got to the hospital, they got us checked right into radiology and in no time we were looking at our little one on a screen. I had a female tech this time, instead of the hippie cowboy I had last time, and she was a lot gentler! She checked to see what it was first thing, and it took her all of about 2 seconds to figure out it was boy! Like I said earlier, it was kind of hard not to miss. For me anyways, T didn't hear what she said and but he soon figured it out. She first measured me, then the baby's head, abdomen, and femur bone, to see how far along he was. He weight 1 lb 5 oz right now and is 22 weeks and 5 days along. It's amazing what technology can do these days! To see how much he weights just by the length and size of certain things!

This is a profile picture of him

His foot!

The little guy was being awfully shy though, he had managed to wedge himself in the very lower right part of my belly, curling up in a tiny little ball and using my bladder as a pillow. She showed us the spine and he was really curled up, in a very tight little ball! When she was measuring the top of the head, you could see a foot right next to it! It's crazy how flexible he seems to be!

This one is hard to make out, but there is only face there, not two! If you look in the upper left corner you can see his nostrils, and to the right of that his mouth is open. It looked like he was sucking when we were watching him, opening and closing his mouth. Oh and he had the hiccups!

Here is another one of his face, he has his hand up by his mouth and his head rested on my bladder. (The large white thing at the bottom of screen. You can see his eyes, nose, and mouth and he looks like he is frowning!

I can't wait to meet him! March is never going to get here! Oh, and they moved my due date up, not very much but it is now March 10th. I have a feeling that he will be early but thats ok with me!

Now I bet your wondering about T and what he thinks. He is excited, but this morning he asked me if I was sure it was a boy. I'm pretty sure it is I told him. He admitted that he kind of wanted a little girl to love on, but he will get one one day! :)
 And here I am at 22 weeks. Showing just a little bit more. Well, I'm going to work on some things so ya'll have a great rest of the week. :)

Oh, and just in case your wondering, his name will be Keagan Tell Blackwell!
