This past Friday I called First Look Ultrasound in Aiea to schedule a gender ultrasound for BF2. I was under the impression that they could do gender scans starting at 16 weeks, which was the case when I was pregnant with KB. So, the conversation went like this:
Me: You can do gender scans starting at 16 weeks, right?
First Look: Actually, we can do them starting at 13 weeks.
Me: REALLY?! When can I come in??
First Look: How about this afternoon?
So we did!
IT'S A BOY!!!
At first, BF2 had his little legs crossed, so we couldn't get a look. So we switched to 4d view, and got to watch him dancing around for a bit.
*I'm glad I am able to upload this here, since it's too large to send in an email.*
We got a few more shots of BF2 dancing around, and it was awesome. He kicked his legs, waved his arms, arched his back, rolled over, curled into a ball.. all of this activity while we were watching! It was amazing! I think the ice cream I had right before we went to the imaging clinic might have had something to do with his little dance show.
The tech got a ton more pictures of his little boy bits, including some with color to show blood flow, to be sure that what we were seeing wasn't the umbilical cord. It definitely wasn't! (Insert Jason's proud Daddy jokes here.)
We also got his measurements, which are freaking awesome. He was measuring at 16 weeks, 0 days, even though I was only 14 weeks, 6 days along. So big boy is measuring 8 days ahead, which is wonderful news to me. After having such a tiny baby girl, I hope this baby boy is just huge.. and I realize what I'm wishing upon myself by doing so.
And lastly, we finally got some pictures of his face.
Ladies and gentlemen, Jason and I would like to introduce Garrett Bradley Frederick.
