Wiener Confirmation!

Last Thursday we had an awesome 19 week ultrasound!  I apologize for taking so long to post this but after our appointment I was just so happy I never got to the computer to type this up.  The ultrasound confirmed that we’ll be welcoming a baby boy in May!  It also gave me an incredible Christmas present, my placenta previa cleared!!!  So, as would be expected, Blue and I celebrated all weekend…

Little Man is going to be tall, you could tell he had really long legs in the ultrasound, the tech also said that he’s measuring 6 days ahead for crown to rump length (which is the measurement they usually use for dating the pregnancy.)  Early on he consistently measured 3 days ahead on CRL but since 12 weeks he has been growing like crazy!

Somehow finding out he is a boy makes this whole pregnancy thing feel more real.  We’ve started serious talks about names and think we’ve come to an agreement but I still have a few little hang ups.  Our plan is to call him by his name (secretly) for the next few weeks and see if it sticks.  I have to admit that I’m having a hard time not calling him little man though, that seems to fit the best of anything!

This week I promise a 20 week post complete with belly pictures and another post all about the fact that we’ll no longer be having a planned C-section and why that terrifies me. 


  1. I can't wait to see you and put my hands on your tummy and have a good long talk with that perfect little man of yours!

    You know... as soon as you and Blue decide you've had enough "celebrating"! ;)

  2. Congrats on your baby boy!!! :)

  3. Haha, thanks girls! The word son makes this all seem surreal...

  4. Yay, congrats!!! So, is this lil man going to be your Lincoln that you always dreamed of??! :)

  5. Congrats!!! I can tell you...having a boy is fabulous! (And I am still calling Ian my "little man," even though he's been here for three weeks already). I'm so excited for you. P.S. So glad to hear the placenta previa cleared.

  6. What great news! I have to say, I liked seeing that somebody else says "wiener" - I'm just not mature enough to use official medical terms, especially for babies...
