20w0d: Anomaly scan

This morning we had our 20 week ultrasound. Before the scan, my husband was talking to me, saying that today is the day that we find out whether we're having a son or a daughter. I told him that I didn't want to think about it and made him talk about other things. However, they called us up right on time, and soon got down to business. Everything looked great, and the sonographer couldn't find a single thing for me to worry about. They counted the fingers and the toes, looked at all the internal organs, checked the placement of the placenta and the fluid, and took a bunch of measurements. The baby weighs 377 grams, and we found out today that I am carrying a boy. It is strangely wonderful to be able to say "he" rather than "it". My husband has told me that I now have to start facing up to the fact that we are most probably going to have a son in less than 5 months.

  7. Congratulations! I too just loved the idea of being able to say "he" instead of "it" or "the baby". I wouldn't have been any less excited if we had been told it was a girl, I just wanted some identity for this little being in my tummy.

  8. CONGRATULATIONS!! I'm having a boy as well so you will be about 3 weeks behind me. So exciting! And I agree, it's awesome to be able to say 'he' instead of 'it'. Made it feel so much more real to me.
