Are you freak'n kidding me?

So this morning was my BIG ultrasound to see the baby for the first time.  I have been nervous for a week and didn't sleep much last night thinking about it.  I was more worried about something being wrong with the baby rather then if it was a boy or girl.  Our ultrasound lasted a little over an hour and baby Roberts seems perfectly healthy, 10 little fingers, 10 little toes and in the 35%tile!!  Thank Goodness!  He/She layed still most of the time, completely opposite of both Kate and Nick.  It kept its little ankles crossed and thighs together for most of the hour with one hand bent behind its head.  Little kiddo must have been snoozing or is just a calm baby, which does confirm the fact that I have not felt a lot of baby movement this time around, which could be why I was nervous going in this morning.

Anyway...We were not able to see the gender of the baby, no joke, its legs never opened up! I can't freak'n believe it!  Still no idea if we are adding a baby girl or boy to the family, it is driving me batty!  I so wanted to start buying fun boy or girl things for the baby, oh well, we will find out eventually, I hope.

We do have another ultrasound scheduled for April 24th, not necessarily to find out the gender, but to get better pictures of the baby's heart.  The way baby was laying we couldn't see the heart either and the Dr. needs very specific pictures of the heart.  So, while they are taking a look at the heart hopefully they can take a peek between the legs too.

In the meantime, here is a profile picture of Baby Roberts, isn't he or she just adorable!  We think so!


  1. I love seeing u/s pics! So much fun, I hope little one will let you know next time what he or she is :)

  2. Oh my gosh I would be beside myself! I would have said I'll stay another hour. If you are going to wait maybe you should just wait until the end!?!? I don't think I could...

  3. Ah, well, worse things could go wrong than not knowing his/her sex. Wants to say, 'Surprise, surprise!'.
    Glad all seems well! Love u!
    Has to be a boy anyway!
