XX or XY?

Here's a little pic of me, my pregnant belly, and my assistant at school, Syd.

My ultrasound was yesterday to find out the gender of our little jelly bean. We decided (thanks to Gavin!) that we would have the nurse write it in an envelope so we could open it on Christmas. Unfortunately our baby is already a little stinker and just wiggled and wiggled the entire time. The nurse was super surprised because we couldn't even get "it" to hold still long enough to get a profile shot or look at the heart.

So after an HOUR of poking and prodding the little one to "open up" and hold still, she figured out the gender and handed it over to us! Now we have it in an envelope just BEGGING us to peek. This is the hardest thing we have done in a long time, but it's sure going to make Christmas morning exciting!

What do you think it is? :) We'll keep ya posted!

It would kill me not to know! I think its a little boy :) You will have to do a post ASAP when you find out :) Team Blue!

I think you will have a girl just because I wanted some of our boys to be girls just so Savannah could have a sister. Everyone else seems to have girls, just not me anymore. I guess I should be glad I have one even if she doesn't have any sisters!

Since I can't vote anymore...seeing as how I already know the outcome, I just wanted to tell you a big CONGRATS! You will be the perfect mommy! I have some cute names I like....and you don't have to like them by any means...and it's okay if you use them, because I don't see you ENOUGh to make a difference.
