It's a... a... A...?!?!?

Baby. Yes we are having a baby. Lets start with a back story so everyone can understand.

When I was pregnant with Evan, my dad did not want to know what "brand" he was. I decided nope, I will NOT find out. When I hopped on the table the tech said, "Do you want to know what....?" She stuck the wand to my belly. "The sex is?" There it was. Loud and proud. Evan Michael's manhood in blurry black and white. I guess that was a yes. Well, momma is not the best secret keeper and lord knows I try, but we had to tell dad.

Once we announced we were pregnant with numero dos we made the decision not to tell anyone. Christopher and I would find out and keep it quiet. We want to surprise my dad. So all the begging in the world will not have us tell you. : )

Friday we went to the doctor for my 17 week check up. It was your basic pee in a cup, bp, and yadda yadda. The tech was kind of a Bee-yatch. Who expects a pregnant lady to stand still to balance for 5 seconds to get your weight. We have to try to pee in a cup! Reaching around the big belly to PEE IN A CUP. Hahaha! Name me one pregnant woman that has not had a cup episode! A lot of you have probably had them, or at least, heard them. Turns out I have lost 3 lbs since I became pregnant. My doctor said it was totally fine since i started a job where I get more exercise than normal pregnant ladies. She said as long as I was eating fine, feeling fine and not being sick, the weight loss was just ducky. My blood pressure was great, 113/70. As far as the Toxemia I developed with Evan my doctor said that my chance of having it again is WAY less since I have already had it, but it is still a higher chance than a normal pregnancy. Great news thus far.

I had made a joke/question to the tech wondering if I could get a peek and see if we could see the sex. I got shot down. In a blaze of glory. After we met with Wendy my NP, who I adore, and now Christopher does, he decides to ask her. She told us to hold on a minute and disappeared. We chatted for about 2 minutes and she came back and said to grab our stuff. Needless to say she snuck us in for a 10 minute scan with my new hero Laura, the sonographer. Peanuts head is by my belly button and its feet are tickling my bladder. This totally makes sense since I have been feeling some weird pressure on my bladder. Little monster. As she got down to the "area in question" it had its feet crossed. My husband promptly said it was a family trait and Evan and I are always working our crossed feet when we sleep. After a few jiggles and wiggles Peanut took a huge stretch and showed ALL.

Like stated before, we aren't telling. The pictures are locked away. We totally appreciate the well wishes and guilt trips, and now bribes, but this is kind of a special thing. I hope you all enjoy the reveal when I deliver just as much as we will enjoy sharing it with you!

Now a few other things. In light of gender being a secret, we have had some questions on gifts, if there are any brand specific, color, size etc. Here is a rundown of what we know thus far.

Bottles are Playtex Drop In
Diapers are Luvs
Bedroom theme is monkeys, the colors are shades of green and brown

We do have a registry at Babies R Us, and I am working on one at Wal-Mart. I have had some questions on if we have to get the stuff on BRU registry at BRU. NO NO NO NO NO. LOL I am a frugal momma, if you can find the same thing elsewhere and it saves ya some, have at it!!!

We have the BIG Ultrasound on February 17th, so we will have a TON of pictures to post!

Lots of LOVE,
Megan, Christopher, Evan and Peanut
