Sprout Update

As I mentioned the other day, we had our 20week u/s. Sprout is measuring between 20w and 20w4d for various body parts. Heartrate was 148. This baby's heartrate has fluctuated between 148-188. Alice's was pretty consistent around 165. My fundal height was measuring 21w. According to my calculations, I was either 19w1d or 18w6d. So this baby is measuring WAY ahead, according to me (and my O date). So my due date is March 14 (by LMP), March 17 (by u/s), and the 20-22 by O date.

I turned my head when we got to the gender part, so Sean and Alice could see. I had the lady put that picture in an envelope and seal it...for future reference in a baby book. Shortly after seeing the gender, the tech slipped and used a pronoun. Though I thought I was imagining things. Then we were leaving, and Sean said something that pretty much solidified my belief. I held out for three days before tearing that envelope open, and I was right in all of my thinking and intuition. Without further ado, pictures of Sprout!

I apologize, these pictures are sideways and are pictures of my pictures, but I think you will be able to figure out what is what ;)

And Sprout is a little boy! I was thinking boy because he was measuring a good week ahead at every u/s. Then Sean told me to eat something healthy when we were leaving the ob's. Which he never said anything like that when I was pregnant with Alice.
