Ultrasound


I went in yesterday and had an ultrasound of the baby.  I'm 19 weeks, so this is usually the one where people find out what they're having.  I was able to schedule it during Tyler's lunch so he was able to be there as well as the kids.  It was a lot of fun to see how big the baby has grown.  When I told Cade we were going to see the baby, he thought they were going to cut me open so we could check to make sure it was growing.  He was a little disappointed that he only got to see a fuzzy picture on the computer screen.

As soon as I can get our scanner to work (or when Tyler has the time, rather), I'll post the pictures.  In the meantime, we'd like to see what you all think we'll be having.  With my miscarriages before, Cade was pretty set on having a little brother, but he's since decided that little sisters are fun and would like another one.  According to the Drain-O test, it's a boy. (You mix your urine with crystal drain-o.  If the bubbles turn blue, it's a boy; gold, it's a girl.  Gross, I know, but it's been right so far.)

We didn't find out during the ultrasound because we like to be surprised and know that everyone else is as anxious for us to have the baby as we are.

Everything seemed to be ok otherwise.  We have a large baby (growing in the 8oth percentile) and  I do have an "unusually thick placenta" that they'll check again in 4 weeks.

I think it's funny that you're waiting to officially find out, but having fun with the unofficial tests :) Yay for doing it the way you like it!
I have a hard time imagining Allie (I don't know how you spell her nickname) with a little sister... so I vote boy.
