Still a Boy!

We had the anatomy ultrasound yesterday - when they check out baby's heart, brain, kidneys, and many other things to make sure there are no abnormalities. And of course, they checked the sex again. Before the appointment, Jason and I talked about how funny it would be if they said that the baby wasn't a boy after all. But we found out that he's still a boy!

It was neat because it was a longer ultrasound, since the tech was looking at so many different things. Everything looks perfect, which is so wonderful. He was not being completely cooperative, so there were a few things she couldn't check, and because of that we might have another ultrasound to check those things (yay!) But that's up to the doctor.

Russell was head-down: a 180 from how he was at our last ultrasound! A couple of times he opened his mouth really wide, as if he was yawning. :) We also got several pictures, including some 4D photos - those ones are a little odd because of the color and the lumpy appearance of everything - but we were happy to see the little guy and how much he's changed!

Today was my first full day of student teaching (SO busy and crazy), and I decided to tell the kids today. They are so excited that I'm pregnant - although, unsurprisingly, the girls are disappointed that it's a boy. A few students came up and touched my tummy, or gave me hugs and said hi to the baby.

So, things are going well! Almost halfway through the pregnancy - how amazing!
