Houston...We have a Penis!




**Did that offend anyone... whoops. Well who cares! We're havin a baby boy!! I'm super excited! Partly cuz I thought it was a boy... n it's cool to know I was right! Also cuz it will be a little less frightening for Danny! After seeing Taken he's petrified of having a girl! Plus he can teach him all his favorite things! We did the 3/D-4/D ultrasound thing... It was about a $100 and totally worth it... in my opinion. Especially since it's our first and I'm just so curious! And our first ultrasound was so lame since it was only 7wks.
**One of the first images we saw was of him waving at us! it was when they were doing the b/w 2D since that's how they do gender determination. She said it's definetly a little boy! He kept snuggling up next to the placenta like a blanket. Gross when you think about it... but it was cute to see! he also was moving all over the place! And drinking ALOT! it was crazy you could totally see him swallowing and everything! I totally recommend it!
**If any of you plan on doing this... make sure to start drinking lots of water about a week before you go... Ours were pretty clear for only being 16weeks. (if you don't drink alot of water, it makes the pictures really fuzzy. It increases the clarity of the amniotic fluid or something like that).
**Also... make sure you drink some juice about a half hour or so before you go... I put some in a container and even drank some when I was there... and the little guy was movin all over the place! It has more sugar in it so it get's em all hyped up and wakes em up! The best time to do it is around the 20-24th week if you're doin the 3d/4d stuff... the baby's a little bigger and fatter so it'll look more lifelike. But it's still so cool at 16 weeks! It made it so real! Plus it was fun to have my parents and danny's mom and our niece there since it wasn't thru the hospital! And they take their time and let us see all the fun stuff! Anyways... I digress... I'm just happy it's healthy and human;) And fun it's a boy!!

exciting stephanie!!! I love having a little boy and you will love yours too!! They are so much fun! Just wait until he's crawling and starts making car noises with a car across the floor! It's like it's just bred in them or something!! Now, what names are you thinking about??? Congrats on the healthy baby boy! We are exactly the same weeks along. I have to wait longer than you did to find out what I'm having :( I hope everything continues to go well for you guys!!

Yea for boys! Welcome to the boys club. Congrats Stoddarts. And before you know it, he will be jumping off the Orellano's deck. Hey, now it's time to play the name game, fun!

thanks ya'll;) I'm super excited for a boy! That's awesome we're the same weeks along jen! I was too impatient to wait! I'm sure I'll be a little better on the second one (probly not;). We're working on names... Danny always wanted Carter (even tried renaming himself when he moved in H.S.. but kept forgetting his name!) but there's issues with the fam on it n we don't want to make anyone feel wierd. I really like Dane.. We're also thinkin about Drake, Chase, Caash. Not sure what else! Any opinion?!?!

So I couldn't wait either to find out what I was having... and got these Fetal Fotos done at the mall with both my kids.. at 16 weeks and it is totally worth it! I could barely wait to week 16 to find out! ... I love having a boy first... he is definetly a protector to little Halie! Anyways congrats! :)

4D ultrasounds to make sure that everything is going well (and to hopefully find out the gender!)
