12 weeks 4 days (and an early gender reveal)

From the outside:


From the inside:



I had forgotten how emotional it is to see your baby on an ultrasound.  The first peek we had, he was hardly more than a blob.  Other than relief to see the heart flickering away, I can't say I really felt connected with him being a baby.  But this time (at our sequential screen yesterday), he looked like a little person in there, flopping and wiggling all around.  We could even see him gulping down some amniotic fluid, which was one of the cutest, sweetest things I have ever seen.

It's official: I am completely in love with him.

Oh yeah, and I say "him" because it's a boy.  The tech was able to get us the money shot.  

I'm going to have four sons!!!!  Tee hee!

Forgive my tardy congratulations; I am so far behind that I totally missed your ONE post in October which announced your surprise pregnancy! I am so excited for you! I opened this post and spit tea all over my keyboard.

Thanks for that. *wink*

I have girl vibes. :)

Are you kidding me?! They could already tell?! Why they heck are they making me wait until 20 weeks?! I feel so left out ;-)
CONGRATS to you guys! We already know you make adorable boys and 4 will totally even things out. How fun. I'm secretly {or not so secretly} hoping for a girl, just because we already have 2, one more just seems more fun :)

Jen said...

Sarah said...

Okay! So I was wrong about the gender - wouldn't be the first time - but at least I did predict the pregnancy! ;) Your belly looks awesome! Best wishes!

Thanks for the comment on my post about bf. Oh, it is a roller coaster. The last 4-5 days since I wrote that post have been going so so much better. In fact, I really thought we were just maybe heading in the right direction. Both b**bs were back in working order, pumping was going well, baby girl was eating every 2-3 hours, and pooping plenty. Only to find out that Baby lost weight since Thursday. And is no where near her birth weight yet. She has only gained 1 oz in the last week. Grrr. I still have fight in me, but oh the self doubt and frustration is at an all time high. Add in some baby blues and this is a tough roller coaster. But I will hang on to the image of you stickin' it out and bfing your 18 month old. I want to keep the bigger goal in front of me and not get stuck in the struggles of these first few weeks.
(Sorry for using your comment form- it was quicker than finding your email address in my files.)
Thanks for being my bf cheering squad.

Oh my! Oh my! Congratulations!

You were able to find out the baby's gender at a 12 week ultrasound? That is great.

Many wishes to ALL the boys in the Sunny household....
