It's a Boy!!!

*The above picture is NOT of our ACTUAL baby but represents what he may look like at the time of reading. ;-)

Our ultrasound appointment was today and it was amazing!! Baby James was bouncing around like crazy, the ultrasound tech could barely get the measurements she needed because he wouldn't stop moving!

But we got a good money shot and he is definitely a boy!! I need James to help me convert our pics to an e-version I can upload, and then I will definitely share them!

But he is measuring 9 days ahead--I am thrilled because at 9 weeks he was measuring over a week behind so I was a bit worried about the little tyke, but he caught up and then some!! My midwife said vegans always have the biggest healthiest babies so I should have trusted her! Hehe.

Anyway, like I said, I thought it was a boy--and actually, I sort of feel like this next generation will be all boys (on my Dad's side). For those who don't know my family: My Dad has three brothers and one sister--those five had 11 girls and only 2 boys--so now if the pattern repeats itself, this next generation is another "mostly boys" generation, and should be like 4-5 girls and 20-25 boys, hahah!

But for now boys is winning--this will be the first one of the next generation. Keep tuned for pics of Little James. He has my cute button nose and adorable plump lips. :-)

I am so, so excited for you! And me a bit, since I voted boy :)

Great news about him measuring ahead too! YAY!! Is it still surreal that you have a LO in your belly after trying for so long? It must be such an incredible feeling!

I think I've commented a million times about this already, but really I am so excited and happy! You're my first close friend to have kids and he could seriously be Mira's first boyfriend! haha!

Alyssa--yes it is surreal--especially seeing the u/s pictures because he is a whole complete human living inside me and I'm just not sure how he fits in there! Now I want my stomach to grow because I feel like he is crowded!

I'm so excited about little James!! He's got the room he needs for now, so don't worry about him!

It's definitely surreal to realize there's a PERSON in there, though!

Congrats on the baby boy! (: So happy for you and I can certainly attest to the Vegan/Vegetarian lifestyle making healthy babies .. and BIG! Tristan was 9lbs 1oz! (: I'm glad baby James is doing well and I can't wait to see pics! Hooray!

I was hoping to make a boy-ish quilt. Yay little James!
