20 Week Ultrasound Results

Today I had my 20 week ultrasound.  Though we didn't really get any good pictures, we did see enough to learn that baby three is another boy!

I've been strongly leaning boy the past few days, but it still surprises me that we can have boys.  I grew up in a family that is very dominantly girl.  And now my mother will have more grandsons than granddaughters, which is hard to wrap our brains around.

On the upside of the little guy not cooperating (he was nestled very low, and not budging), we'll get to see him again in four weeks.  In addition to not getting to see his face, which was firmly planted in my placenta, the doctor didn't get to get a good look at some of his more vital organs.  I'm not going to complain about another glimpse of him before his arrival!


  1. Congratulations! How exciting! :-)

  2. Congratulations on the new boy coming soon!

  3. congratulations! My family always seemed to be pretty even in the boy/girl department. I have one girl, two boys and my daughter has two girls. She's pregnant with her third. I'm hoping for a boy.

  4. Congratulations. I always loved going for those ultrasounds. Helped me feel even more connected (especially in the earlier months). Enjoy your boys and your pregnancy. I look forward to reading about your next ultrasound.

  5. I remember when I saw the first ultrasound of my oldest 15 years ago - her hands were squeezing her checks and when she came out - that was how she cried.. 20 weeks! You're half way there..
