It's a BOY!! ... MAYBE :)

So we got the whole anatomy scan done today which was awesome. The baby seems so formed- and so much bigger. And it was fun to have Ryan there to see the baby move and to hear the heartbeat. They looked between the legs and luckily the baby was in a good position. There was definitely something between his legs so they're pretty sure it's a boy- but of course there's always a chance... :) I told Tara, if it's not a boy then it's a girl who decided to stick her fingers down between her legs everytime the ultrasound thingy went down there for a picture. Tara said if that's the case then it's definitely taking after Ryan in the practical joke aspect. LoL so true :)
My mom and I were really thinking it was going to be a girl. My mom got us a bunch of girls clothes- and I have a whole file of JUST girl baby names on my computer... BUT we are happy. And I'm starting to get really exciting about having a baby boy. A big brother!!
Here are some pictures of our little guy:

His body. (You can click on the pic to enlarge)

His back. This is basically a picture of his spine I think??

His arm... and hand :)

Anyway- according to the baby's measurements I was estimated to be almost 17 weeks! According to my original due date I'm only 15 1/2 weeks. Regardless of our babies measurements my doctor refused to change the due date. Gurrr. I like being 17 weeks along better though. I'd take belly shots but I still haven't gotten any bigger since my last picture. And it's been a whole month. Maybe I have though?

We're excited!!! :)

Those are amazing pictures of the baby! I can't believe how how you can see everything. I never had any pictures that good of the twins. They are wonderful, you will treasure those forever! Have you thought of any boy names yet? I am so excited for you, little boys are so much fun! All boys aren't as high strung as Alex...just remember that:)!!!
