It's a boy!
Melissa and I went to the week 20 ultrasound appointment on Tuesday. Everything checked out normal, The Sprout is doing great. The big news to come out of the check uo was that we learned the gender of our wee one. As the headline indicates, we're gonna have a little boy come April/May.
At every step in this process (pregnancy test, hearing the heaqrt beat for the first time, the first ultrasound, etc) the idea that we're having a baby becomes more and more real. Learning our baby's gender is just the latest instance of that.
I had no inkling of what the baby's gender would be, nor did I have any hopes for one sex or another. But now that we know it's going to be a boy, I do feel a bit of relief. If nothing else, we can just concentrate on coming up with boy names.
Below, proof of the baby's gender:
