It's a . . . baby. We call it Thermos.

We went for our big diagnostic ultrasound this past Tuesday. As far as we can tell everything looked great. The tech estimated my due date a week earlier (1/25/10) but we're sticking with the original 2/2/10 date. Thermos is tipping the scales at 15 oz.

I know it sound crazy, but even in the ultrasound Thermos looks a little like Bennet and Scout did. Nick made the comment that it has my chin bone structure already. I am always amazed to see baby moving around in there. The tech had a really hard time getting measurements b/c it was dancing like crazy. So much for a low key baby. j/k.

I made this layout to answer the, "Do you know what you're having?" question.

JOURNALING: When it comes to finding out the sex of a baby I am a strict member of Team Yellow. In my opinion there is a huge difference between finding out in a dark u/s room at 20 weeks and finding out on delivery day. Your Dad & I have gone through 9 months of happy times and random emotional crying times. It all comes down to that moment. We finally get to meet him or her. You're finally here. Now I am a big planner. It surprises people that I don't find out. But I don't feel less prepared. I feel excited & ready for one of life's last true surprises. So when people ask, "Do you know what you're having?" I jokingly reply. "A baby." We will know soon enough. 20 more weeks to go.

Glad all look well!! For the record - we didn't find out for our children either - nothing like hearing the doctor say "It's a...!"

So happy to hear all looks well!
We didn't find out what we were having a head of time either for our three kiddos.

I'm totally with you on the team yellow!!! We didn't find out with either one of ours. And I agree, I think there's a big difference finding out in an u/s room vs the delivery room. It's one of God's greatest suprises and I LOVE waiting til the end. Besides, what's there to plan that you can't go out and buy after the baby is born?? With my daughter I had a neutral looking baby outfit but with my son I had a boy & a girl outfit. I told my hubby to go home and wash the appropriate outfit after we had the baby :)
