Congratulations!

How does it feel? A little more real now?

Mark and I had our ultrasound today as well. Didn't find out the gender, but we did see the baby swallow and move and stuff. Surreal for me and I could feel it wriggle under the ultrasound wand, so I can imagine how far PAST surreal it must be for you.

:)

I kept willing my fingers to vote girl for some reason, but they refused -- and they were right!

Shinny said...

Congratulations! Is it really a boy or are you teasing us with that line in your last post that blue was girl and pink was boy? I am so confused now. ;)
Happy for you.

Anns said...

It's ah raining men.. hallelujah...

I dunno why but I see you better suited for boys anyways.. you're a tough one, maybe that's why?

missedconceptions said...

I could launch into an entire discussion about semiotic theory re: blue squares, but instead I will just say congrats on a healthy he-beastie.

I hope he feels a little more real now.
