What!!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday i went to the doctor's for a regular monthly check-up.(note: tomorrow i have my ultrasound to find out if it's a boy or girl. Steven's coming with me too, it's our tradition.)  My doctor starts pushing on my tummy and measures it.  "Keri, you're measuring a bit big"  I would like to do an ultrasound right now to do a body count. I want to make sure there is only one baby in there. WHAT, THERE MIGHT BE TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE JOKING!!!!!!!!!! Oh no, she wasn't. She brought in the ultrasound machine, and asked me if i wanted to know what the sex of the baby was.  Absolutely, i want to know!!!!!!!!! I've been waiting for 20 weeks!!!!!!...  But then started to tell her.......but don't tell me! The doctor looked at me kinda puzzled. I told her that I have to wait until Thursday, my husband is going with me, and that it's our thing to go together to the ultrasound. And that we were very excitied to go together.  I would just feel horrible if i found out before him!!! "Wow, Keri your husband should buy you a great big treat for that!" He should !!!!! Well she did the ultrasound, i got to see the face and heart beat, and LEGS!!!!!!  

 I have to admit.... I am weird!!! I haven't been feeling my baby kick, just the flutters, so i was under the impression... MY Baby doesn't have any legs! I told this to my doctor, so during the ultrasound , she made sure to show me the legs, feet and toes. Oh, by the way there was only ONE baby in there.  THANK HEAVENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So tomorrow is the BIG DAY.  I'll be posting it tomorrow to let you all know if it's a boy or girl!  Keep your fingers crossed for me. And pray that i'm having a girl!!!!!!!!!  Oh and one more thing.  Since i'm measuring big, i might be further along than i thought, which is always great news. I'll find out tomorrow as well, wish me Luck.

OH my word! My heart is seriously beating fast because I thought for sure you were going to say you're having twins! At least there's only 1 in there! And way to be patient- you're such a good wife! I can't wait to hear what you're having and post some more belly pics :)

Wow that is nice of you, If I happen to get the baby in position to see at work there is no way I am waiting for Dan, of course the daily ultrasound access does make it a little different. But, Stephen better appreciate you doing that, I wouldn't. Mikaela
