It's a.....

So today was my ultrasound.  I had talked to Cortney a couple of different times this week about when it was...but about an hour before my appointment I realized I hadn't really told him what time it was at.  I started to panic when I called him a couple of times and he didn't answer.  Then 12 phone calls later and after getting a hold of Darrin, a coworker and finding out that Cortney wasn't at the office....I just knew....he was going to miss the ultrasound.    

Cali drove me down to the hospital.  I was still trying to call Cortney (was he hurt somewhere??). I was mostly sad because I knew Cortney wanted to be there.  As I sat in the waiting room I almost started crying...I couldn't believe I was going to go through this all alone.  1 minute after my appointment was supposed to start Cortney called.  He had just gotten done playing racquetball and saw he missed all my calls. He ran to get to me as fast as could and the lovely people at the hospital waited for him to come.   When he walked in I was SOO relieved.  Although because he came straight from the gym he was covered in SWEAT and he was wearing a sleeveless shirt and gym shorts.  He looked hilarious.  

The ultra sound was awesome.  I love seeing my babies.  Ohhh.  It is so cool.  I can't believe how amazing it is.  It really makes the pregnancy so real.  Makes the baby a real child.  I was worried about the health of the baby...just because this pregnancy I am talking a really low dose of steroids.  It isn't ideal to have to be on but it is hard for me to function without it.  To see that the baby was healthy, man it is beyond words.  And you should see its little legs they were kicking like crazy.  

And without further ado....

The baby is a...

Boy.

Sigh...

I really thought it might be a girl.  But hey...I guess I am meant to be a mother of boys.  I am so happy...but just a little shocked.   He is going to be adorable...and I can't wait.  I just don't want to have to name this baby.  I don't have any boy names left in my brain.  

But hey...so far we've made some pretty handsome boys.

Boys are awesome. I love boys. If I had to choose between all boys and all girls.....definitely boys! (I hope that doesn't make me sound like a bad mom...I love my girl of course!)

Laura Lei said...

Yeah! I'm so excited for you. I LOVE seeing a family with all boys. I know I only have the perspective of someone who grew up with a bunch of boys, but still it was pretty awesome.

ASHY, YIPPEE! 3 boys is a total party ALL the time. When I had my ultrasound with Coop I SO wanted a girl. So he was born with boy parts and I got use to it. To compensate for the girl thing I just grow his hair long, have him wear pink every now and again, and call him girly names. IT'S AWESOME! Congrats.

Supercords said...

Congrats Ash. Chalk another one up for my prediction record :)

Boys are so wonderful. I saw a lady at Wal-Mart with 3 little boys (no girls)--it was the cutest thing. They were being so helpful and cute. So happy for you!

Cindy said...

So happy for you! I'm glad all is well and you are feeling good all the way around.

I have 3 boys too and they are the best of friends. I love being a mom to them. Even though they are all in their 20's now.

Keep us all posted!

Ultrasounds are not 100% accurate... so keep the faith. And another adorable little boy is not a bad consolation prize!

Welcome to the 3 Boys Club! Though my heart sometimes aches for a little girl, I wouldn't trade my boys for anything! You and me girl. We'll always have Star Wars, Indy, and Super Heroes to talk about. And GOOOOOOD luck coming up with another boy's name. We knew exactly what to name Numero 3 if she was a girl. But alas, it was not to be and coming up with yet another boy's name was not as fun.

Congrats!!! And yes, you do make some dang cute boys!

I think this most assuredly means I am having a girl. Echo: sigh.
