That's what little BOYS are made of!
As it turns out, the old wives are off their game and have no idea what they're talking about. Friends and family, however, are right on the money. We're having a BABY BOY!
My gut feeling from the beginning was that Plus One was a boy, yet somehow I can hardly believe it. I'm a little overwhelmed and feeling a bit out of my element, because I know girls. I mean, I am one, I grew up with a sister, I have the world's coolest daughter already. So this is uncharted territory, folks. But I have no doubt that these feelings of "YIKES" are normal for mamas in this position, and I'm not too worried about it. I'm definitely up for the challenge!
(Unless he ends up being into bugs. I don't do bugs.)
The rest of the ultrasound went well, too. Plus One was a wee bit stubborn with some angles the tech needed (to which I thought, oh no, not another one!, because that was sort of Ellie's modus operandi), but ultimately we got all the views we needed and everything looks perfect. He had a spine, and a heart with four chambers, and legs, and feet, and hands with five fingers, and even a perfect little alien face.
As planned, we left straight from our appointment and drove to Orlando, and spent tonight settling into our resort (it's great!) and exploring Downtown Disney (dinner at the T-Rex Cafe!).
Now we're looking forward to spending the rest of the weekend at Disney World as a happy family of three, joyously celebrating the impending addition of a new "Mickey" to our clan!
