HOORAY!!! We finally found out what we are having! And as you can tell... IT'S A BOY! We are super stoked! But it was pretty funny that almost everyone we talked to said we were going to have a girl. Guess we'll save that one for later :)
We already have a name picked out for him. Owen Bryan Illguth. We love it and little Owen is already getting used to hearing his name. So nice not to call him "baby" or even worse, "it."
When we went to do the ultrasound on the 19th, the nurse jellied me up and asked if we wanted to know the gender. We said yes and 5 seconds later Bryan says, "It looks like a boy to me." She told him he was right. I couldn't see the stinkin' screen because I was laying down. But after a while I got adjusted to the funky angle and saw that he was flashin' the world. Not hiding anything. We got a bunch of ultrasound pictures to prove it, but I don't think he wants his goods shown to the world. So I'll stick with these.

This was the only profile shot we got of him. He would not hold still for the life of him. But at 19 weeks, he already looks darn cute!

And here's one looking almost straight on to his face. I have some brain and bladder pictures too, but I didn't think those were too interesting.
So there is the cute little 10 oz. baby growing inside of me. Such a cool thing to think about. But I'll update when more comes along!

4 Months.... already?

For reals, it has already been a month since my last post??? Holy buckets, what did I do last month?!? Grew more of our baby I guess :)

Well, I never put up a 3 month picture because I didn't look noticeably different. So here's one for 4 months. I have this little belly and people at my work keep touching it. I guess they think it's cute. Such a relief to tell my co-workers I was expecting. Then I didn't have to go around trying to make people not think I was fat. I get to actually be pregnant :) It's nothing too hard core yet, but I swear I stick out more every day. The baby is going through a growth spurt and is about as big as an avocado.

Next cool thing. Bryan's parents are coming to visit in 4 days so I decided to move up my appointment so we could find out what we are having when his parent's were here. So now we are finding out on Friday the 19th! 5 DAYS!!! Here's a little chain I made. I am not excited to find out the gender..... :)

And yeah, I just had to put this in here. I didn't even make it the whole work day with my pants fully buttoned. This was a couple of weeks ago. I now have to do this to almost all of my pants. All I had was orange...
