So we had our ultrasound this morning.

They took a bunch of measurements. One head, two legs, two feet, two arms, two hands, two kidneys, one heart with four beating little chambers.

Did you know that they use warmed jelly on your belly for this kind of thing? I didn't. It was rather nice, like warm water.

And they also have this very cool recliner chair that you sit in and The Husband told me that one of those would cost a bazillion dollars--I know because I suggested that one of those at my desk might make work more enjoyable right now.

Anyway I ended up a half hour late for our doctor's appointment. So I checked in and found out that my blood pressure was high but could be worse and also that I LOST A POUND!! I have no idea where I lost it, but I'm sure it's here some where...maybe behind the sour cream in the fridge...

So because I was so late I ended up waiting FORTY-FIVE MINUTES to get in to see my doctor and then I met this weird 4th year Med Student named ANDY and he talked to me for a while and listened to the baby's heartbeat which is good and strong and he found it right away which is great because I was just looking at it so I KNOW it's in there.

Then Dr. Alice came in and we chatted and ordered up some blood work and she cut her hair which is very cute, and then I headed off to the lab for the blood work.

Filled up that vile in no time flat! Packed up, found a bathroom and headed for work again. And now I'm back. At work. At my desk.

But I'm not really thinking about work. I'm thinking about my son.

YEP! WE'RE HAVING A BOY!!!

I've NEVER been wrong! I can't believe it. I'm going to blame it on the fact that I have never been in the pit's (I mean the child's) presence. I am SO excited for you. Of course, this ruins my gift idea. Thanks a lot! Just kidding! Maybe I'll get you some pee-pee tee-pees so he doesn't squirt you during diaper changes. :) This makes me wonder if I'm wrong about my wee babe. I guess we'll see. I love you and I'm so excited for you guys and your little boy.
