We know what the gender is!

And we're not going to tell you! Ok, just kidding... it's a boy!! Ben and I were completely surprised, because we were both fairly certain it was a girl. So wrong, but that's ok. Now we have to start referring to him as a him instead of a her! Sorry buddy.

For the name, we've chosen Michael James. Michael is my dad's name, and James is Ben's dad's name. We really liked the idea of naming our first boy after our fathers. Our fathers seem to like the idea too. :)

Ben's really excited to have a baby that'll look like him. Now we just have to figure out how to paint the room Michael and Lily will share so neither one of them get a gender complex.

Ultrasound pictures:

Michael Ultrasound 1
Profile. He was being really camera shy and it was hard to get any of his face - though he didn't mind showing off his boy parts the moment she put the ultrasound thingy on my belly!

Michael Ultrasound 4
Cute little foot!

He was measuring exactly 20 weeks, 2 days, only one day bigger than we were guessing from my last period date, so he's right where we expected, and my due date is still July 2nd. So far this pregnancy hasn't had any complications, unlike Lily's where I was going in for ultrasound every month or more often starting at 17 weeks. It's been nice though that this time around is so much more normal and stress-free.

We're having a boy!!! Can you believe it?? :)

How exciting!! We had a feeling you'd be having a boy just 'cause your pregnancy has been so different than the last. Congrats!! Now you'll have one of each. We're pretty sure we're having all boys, so we're very jealous. :) Hope you're still feeling well. Lily looks so cute in all your pics!
