It's a...


If I could make that font even smaller, I would.  Here's how the gender search went:
Dr. S.: Look at that!  See those lines?  That looks like girl to me!
N and J: giggle giggle giggle
Dr. S.:  Let's look around...placenta looks great...size looks great...very active, good movem-
N: Yes?
Dr. S.:  I think I saw a penis.  Let me look again.

He looks again and again and again - we seriously spent 10 minutes just looking for fetal genitalia, and we have decided that the baby is one of two things:
1.  A boy
2.  A girl with a strategically placed umbilical cord

We really don't know.  (Thanks to you 3 people who said we wouldn't find out; you cursed us!)  Dr. Sizemore is putting it at a 60% chance that it's a boy.  Given that it started with a 50% chance, we haven't clarified much.  I threatened to come up with some problem that would send us to the specialist upstairs (with the high-powered ultrasound machine), but figured I'd end up with enough time with specialists as it is.

So there you go.  The Booger is a beautifully-developing, perfectly healthy little...booger.


  1. Aww, congratulations either way! It's so exciting that you're at this point! It seems like just the other day you were announcing.

  2. Yay for a normal boring pregnancy!! Full of mystery too! How wonderful. So pleased that s/he is fooling you all already.

  3. Yay! Love those words "developing normally!"
