We finally got our our little one this past week. We've reached the 20 week mark and it was finally time to get the standard anatomic ultrasound. We weren't going to find out the sex, but we caved in and went ahead. Neither one of us is very good with secrets and we just couldn't wait to know.

I was a bit surprised how clearly you could see everything. Some of the angles were weird and I couldn't make out what we were looking at, but for the most part, everything was clear. You could easily see a little head and nose and chin and once the tech pointed it out, the beating heart.

They check the heart and measure the leg and arm bones, and around the head and belly. We got to see one of the feet really clearly and there was a little hand tucked up under the chin.

The baby is currently breech and was quite happy laying on its back for the whole thing. The tech was jiggling my stomach with the wand thing and it just didn't want to move. It was trying not to laugh too much when she was doing it, but goodness. Hard not to!

So anyway. ITS A BOY! Yay!
