|This might be the cutest and yet also the most creepy ultrasound picture I've seen.|
Well all the doctor will say is that "there are no markers for x or y or z" because of the legal ramifications of actually giving a patient information but! No markers for anything is a very, very good sign.
The baby is 11oz. Which means that they are measuring exactly to my due date of June 10. Which is more of a relief than I can even say considering that over the last couple months of sick I've lost a bunch of weight. Pretty scary since I'm supposed to be in the second trimester growth spurt. But! My body is doing what it's supposed to do - sacrificing itself for the kid. I'm fine with that. And now that I'm eating (and keeping things down) again I'm sure that things will normalize quickly.
|This one, however, is just creepy.|
|It also provides a nice place for the baby to hide from that pesky ultrasound tool.|
|Blurry profile shot. Did you expect any of Matt's children NOT to be fidgety? Because really, now.|

Oh yeah. No. We did not find out. Because it doesn't matter. At all. I hasn't mattered with any of our kids. The goal here isn't to collect a matching set or to get an heir and a spare (seriously even the Brits don't care which pieces parts their heirs have anymore). We just want to have a big, happy, healthy family. So we thought it would be fun to do it completely differently this time and not find out at all.
Clearly from the reaction we have gotten so far this annoys alot of people. But! I've learned by now that our parenting decisions aren't going to please everyone. And that people are going to be dicks and not respect our opinions no matter what. So we are doing what we always do. What's best for our family.
|I'm going to be the best surprise ever!|
Although according to our daughter the pictures are of a baby girl with dark hair. So there's that.
