    We had THE BIG u/s this morning!!

    We stayed strong and the baby's gender is still a secret! The tech didn't even look since we didn't want to know!! Overall, everything looks great! Baby is measuring right on target, heartrate at 156, and it was so good to see our little one wigglin' around in there!!

    We also met with the genetic counselor this morning and she just briefed us on Cystic Fybrosis (we didn't really learn anything we didn't already know- we have a nephew with CF) and what our chances are for having a baby with CF without being tested first, which are 1/232. We have to go back and get blood drawn to get the official word if either dh or I are carriers.

    Here are a few of our baby's first pictures!!

    Lindsay!!!!

    You did it!!!! You stayed strong!!!! My big u/s is tomorrow and I have this horrible fear I will acccidently see something!! My DH isn't even allowed to come because he WILL look and be able to tell immediatey!!!! I have to confess I have toyed with the idea of finding out this past week, but I HAVE to stay strong like you!!!!

    I'm so glad that everything looked great. I hope you get some great test results back about CF. YOur baby is adorable in those pics. Thanks for sharing!

    Jodi- You just tell the u/s tech that you don't want to know and if she has to do any measuring "down there" (legs, etc.) then tell her to have you look away!! You must be strong with me!!!! Dh was very good too- he didn't look into things and was happy leaving without knowing! I also thought about finding out, just for shopping purposes , but I just keep reminding myself what a sweet moment it will be in the delivery room to hear "It's a ______!"

    50/50- I'm 17w2d today!!

    Congrats! The baby looks great!!! Good for you for staying strong!

    I think that if I hadn't wanted to know that I may have noticed just because his little penis was sticking up in the full body profile. Glad this wasn't the case for you, and it will be so exciting to find out in 5 months!

    Gwen, you know, I was thinking that your baby's picture was the VERY first one I had ever seen with the penis showing from that direction! Usually you get a shot from the underside, near the hiney, between the legs!

    Can you believe we only have FIVE MORE MONTHS?!?!?! This is flying by for me!

    I know...5 more months!! It's going by quick!

    And yes, I was shocked about my little guy's penis. At first we did the between the legs shot and she said we were having a boy, then when we flipped around to the profile, there he was again. DP said her son's u/s was the same way, but I had never heard anyone say that before.

    We'll be holding out little one's before we know it!

    Lindsay -

    Those are great pictures and congratulations on staying strong. We're going to find out the sex and I can't wait but I admire those people who have the patience to hold out.
