Yesterday was finally the day of our ultrasound. We were originally supposed to go on Tuesday but long story short, they messed up at the doctors office and we had to wait until yesterday.

When he was done with the measuring he announced that the baby was perfectly normal and healthy. I felt so relieved. And oh so very happy. Throughout the whole ultrasound baby kept kicking/punching and sucking on its tiny little hand. Its little arms were crossed in front of its tiny little face and that was just too adorable. Finally, the doctor asked if we wanted to know the sex. We both said yes immediately!!! And so the doctor announced that we are having a....
