It's official. There is a little baby in there and turns out, we are having a son! Quite a few people thought the opposite, but I think it's just because I'm girly and they wanted me to have a little protege. I have never seen such a big smile on Forest's face and that alone made me so happy. I always wanted boys before I got pregnant. There is just something about how a little boy loves his mama.
I don't have a photo, but I think those always mean more to the parents than anyone else. It's much more amazing to see the little heart pumping on the video screen or the leg kicking. When they freeze a frame and print it you're like "what is that again?"
His foot almost caused huge problems because it was strategically positioned in front of that crucial area and the doctor was not going to call it without 100% confidence. With a little prodding he cooperated - it's a good thing because I was so excited to find out the gender I didn't get anything done leading up to our appointment. I would have been so disappointed, but the little guy came through.
He weighs 10 ounces, a little bigger than normal for 19 weeks. Hopefully that means he comes early. Although, I was 9 lbs. 9 oz. when I was born so he might just be a big boy. But I really hope not. Ouch.
