Well, its official………

…kinda.

6 weeks ago, I had a fetal echo of our little “bubbles” and got to see a healthy, 4-chamber, fully developed, beautifully functioning heart!!  What a relief to be told that your baby’s heart looks perfect!!

We asked the cardiac ultrasonagrapher if he could tell what baby’s gender was.  He wrote down his answer in a sealed envelope which we intended to open as a family on Christmas.

Confession here:……moments after pulling out of the hospital parking lot, I had my iPhone flashlight out trying to get a read through the envelope and distinctly saw GIRL written neatly on the 3×5 card.  Shortly thereafter, I confessed my embarassing   “moment of weakness” to C.  So, we’ve been holding this little secret and thinking of girl names for the past few weeks.

Then the day before Christmas Eve, I went for my first proper doctor visit and got an ultrasound scan of baby by an actual obstetrician, who contradicted the first answer and assured us that she is 100% sure that it is a BOY!!

So…..we are going with…….BLUE BABY!!!
(we think)

Lots of happy squeals and jumping up and down from our girls….and big brother Tristan is completely in denial.  After this many sisters, its hard to believe you’ve got a shot at a brother.  He says he’ll believe it when he sees it, but the assumption is…….we will have bookend boys to balance our family!!

With all my pregnancies, we’ve never had a 3D ultrasound before.  C and I were in awe watching this tiny person looking so complete and beautifully formed.  Getting excited to have him in our arms, (tho with all these eager, helpful older siblings, I wonder how much snuggle time momma’s actually gonna get!?)
