It's A......


We are SO SO SO excited! His name will be Elijah Joel. Joel after his daddy :). He will go by Eli. YAY! No more having to stress over girl's names now! LOL!

So here's the crazy story....My MIL wanted to come to the U/S. I told her that was fine. Especially when I found out that DH might not be able to go because of work. My mom and sister offered to come because DH might not be there. Ok....then my SIL wanted to come! now we have a full house! And it turns out...DH DID get to come! Oh my! turns out my mom couldnt make it ended up being me, DH, my sister, MIL, and SIL....and my 2 nephews! OMG!

Needless to say it was very hectic! I had told DH that if he got to be there I wanted him to find out first and then he could bring in the rest of them to find out. MIL did NOT like this idea at all! But oh well! But it turns out our little guy was being very stubborn and showed us his back practically the whole time! So after DH and I were in there alone for about 5 minutes I told him to just go ahead and go get everyone. I didnt want them waiting for a really long time...and I wanted them to be able to see the U/S!

It all turned out just fine because there were 2 chairs in there where my MIL and SIL ended up sitting to take care of my nephews. My sister came right to my side...which was good...because...lets face it...I would prefer my own family over my in laws to be all up in my...well, you know! So it turned out great. My MIL and SIL could still the U/S screen and DH and my sister stayed by my side.

After about 10 minutes the U/S tech said she still couldnt see anything! That little bugger had his legs bent up and he was grabbing his foot! She kept wiggling my belly to try to get him to move around. I, of course, didnt mind at all just watching my little one on the screen! Finally out of no where the tech says "Oh, its a boy!" And who heard her?? Just me and my sister! LOLOLOL Everyone was chatting and not really paying attention because it was taking so long and so it ended up being a special moment for me and my sister. It was awesome! I started crying a little bit seeing a little winky on the screen! LOL DH came over and gave me a kiss :) It was a very nice moment. No amount of people in the room would have bothered me right then. Right after we found out, Abby said "Ok...who can I tell?!" I said "Go ahead and tell whoever you want!" So she called mom up right away and had my DH yell it into the phone! Then she started texting all her friends! It was really funny.

My MIL was so so so desperately wanting a girl. Deep down I think she knew it would be a boy...but she so wanted a grand-daughter! As soon as the U/S was over, my MIL and SIL left. They didnt even say goodbye to me! But they were in a rush with the 2 little I understand. Then I had to wait around to see the doctor and go over the results and all that jazz. Everything is measuring just fine! The tech said she didnt get good pictures of his heart like she was hoping and she wanted better measurements of the legs. So what does this mean? I get to go back in 3 weeks for another U/S! YAY!

So here are the "money" shots! LOL

And here's one of his cute little alien face!

We also got some cute pics of his foot, but my camera is being stubborn and stopped taking good pics of the U/S pics! grrr. I need a scanner! LOL

Our little man was measuring 10 inches long...approximately because she couldnt get a good measurement of his legs...and he weighs 10 oz! It is amazing how much more connected you feel to you little one when you can call them by a name! :) I LOVE BEING PREGNANT!
