Pink or Blue?

We still have lots of ice all over the ground. Some schools were closed again today, including Katie's! 

Yesterday was supposed to be my 20 week appointment with the doctor. Which means we would find out the gender! Well, they were closed due to the ice too! 
 God is trying to grow my patience. 

The office got us in today...along with everyone else too!
We had to wait 2 hours.  With a 3 year old. And a full bladder.

When I got there they said, "Don't go to the bathroom!" I guess the baby is easier to see with a full bladder?
I don't know, but I was about to burst. When they saw my FULL bladder on the sono, the nurse and the doctor both apologized.

Marcus and Katie waiting...
 

I had to include myself too. This new baby needs to know the mommy was there also!
Except, I didn't want to show my double chin, so I kept trying. 
It turns out if you have a double chin, they are hard to hide!
The bonus is that I have lost 1.5 pounds this pregnancy! Apparently it didn't come off my chin!

Oh, and we're having a BOY!

Katie's name suggestions have been Woody or Buzz Lightyear, so we would appreciate any other suggestions. I have always loved Jack, but my friend Michelle, has the cutest Jack ever! We couldn't compete with him!

After our super duper long appointment we went to Bass Pro Shops. (Well, first we ate, because I have my priorities straight!) We always get Katie's picture with Santa there. Not this year. She wanted nothing to do with the man! I didn't force the issue.
She got to ride the merry go round and then went "camping" with her dad!

We had a fun day and it was so nice to be out of the house!

And it's really nice to know what kind of baby I'm having and that he looks healthy! 
The doctor was measuring his bones, looking at his kidneys, and I said, "is there a heartbeat?!" I don't know if anyone else asks that at their 20 week appointment, but I'm still surprised! 

Thanking God for a healthy baby!

Congratulations on a healthy baby BOY!!

Leslie said...

Congratulations!!! I am sure he will be just precious based on how CUTE that sister of his is!

Nicole T said...

So excited for you, Dina!!! There is just something about a boy that takes over a mama's heart in ways she never imagined!!

If I had another boy (which is NOT happening), I would name him Sawyer. Maybe I can get one of my kids to give me a grandson with that name.

And we always go to Bass Pro Shop, too! My kids declare that the REAL Santa is there. We are heading to Tulsa on Thursday for our annual trip to see Santa.

This boy mom is THRILLED for you!! We have a Jackson and a Colton but Benjamin was also a strong possibility.
Whatever you decide will be perfect - just like HIM!! CONGRATS!

Congratulations! I had a girl and boy also and when we found out the second baby was a boy my daughter told us she hated the name Easton and was going to call him "Care Bear". Needless to say, we went with Easton. If we ever have another little boy, he will be named Henry. Love that name!

Congrats guys! I was hoping for blue.

So wonderful to hear that you're pregnancy is going well. Keeping you in my prayers.

Jo said...

Congratulations! I never wanted boys, only girls. And now here I am with two little boys, and I love it (although I still long for that girl...)! My favorite boy name was Tate, but my husband vetoed that one. So happy for you! Katie will love having a baby brother to play with (and eventually pick on)!

Leslie said...

Congratulations on a healthy little boy! I have one of each and love it! My "little" boy is almost 14, but he will still cuddle with me and tell me he loves me. Boys and their moms have a very special relationship. Get ready to have yourself wrapped and his finger and love every minute of it!

Congratulations on hearing you are having a healthy Boy !!! How exciting. My middle daughter is also pregnant with a boy and her due date is, April 9th. He will be our first Grandchild after raising three girls so it will be a fun experience. My favorite boy names are Matthew and Nicholas and I also like Bennett, Colby,and Grayson. I am keeping you in my prayers and you are indeed blessed!!!

So exciting for all of you! We are having our second granddaughter and I loved their boy name that won't get used in our family....Tucker. I picture a handsome guy with that name!

Lisa said...

There is something so sweet about baby boys! Congratulations!

Brooklynn said...

I am SO excited for you guys!!!!! A boy, that is just such a blessing. Glad you and baby are doing great!!

Staci said...

Ack! How did I miss this?? I opened my dashboard and saw today's post. Dang, so much for building up the surprise!! CONGRATS on the baby BOY! How exciting! And on the names, I can tell you both of my girls go to school with about 4 Nathans, Ethans and Williams. (Coming from a mother who named her daughters Sofia and Olivia. Hello, in the top 10 baby names. Originality is not my strongest trait). I have a friend whose son is named Maverick. Such a cool name!

emily said...

YAY for a boy! I know Katie will be the best big sister. (and Jack is by far, the cutest boy name ever! ha!!)

Bec74 said...

Yeah for a baby boy!!! Congrats! My boys names are Zeke Max Blake :)
Boys names are harder then girls, at least for me they were! Can't wait to see what you pick out for your blue bundle!

Debbie T. said...

I'm so happy for you. I hadn't read your blog for some time, so I was excited when I checked last week and found that you were expecting. Prayers for a healthy boy are going your way. My boys are Jordan and Collin.

Mallorie said...

YAY! So exciting! And the same thing happened with me and the bladder situation. I had heard not to pee, and then the sonographer was like "Do you need to go to the bathroom" And I explained why I hadn't gone and she was like, that's just silly! You can go! haha!

Erin K said...

CONGRATS!!!!! Glad all is going well with baby boy Woody/Buzz. Good luck with a name. That was hard to pick just 2 (first and middle). There's something I love about the name Finn...
