Ohhhhh Great??????

So the wife and I went in for our 18 week appointment and we had something interesting happen. The doc was out of the office so the nurse did the appointment for us. We were looking at the ultrasound and she said, "Do you want to know what you are having?" We told her we had gone to Fetal Fotos a few weeks back and found out it was a boy. "Really?" she replied, "I am not seeing any "boy parts" here." She went on to say that she is not an ultrasonographer, so she said she wasn't sure about it and we would just have to wait until our 20 week appointment for our in depth ultrasound with the ultrasonographer. So now we are just left hanging for a few more weeks to find out for sure what we are having. The good thing is that we didn't order the boy baby bedding or paint the baby room yet. We are still thinking that it is a boy, but can't help to wonder if maybe the first ultrasound prediction was wrong??? Either way, the baby is looking healthy and that is all we really care about!!! I will let you know in a few weeks.

So I had a comment on my blog that told me about a great site to help find a name for your baby. Nymbler is a very cool site that allows you to pick names that you like and then it searches for new names based on the ones that you like. What a great idea! We put in four of our top name ideas and it was funny to see how many of the names it found that we also really liked and also how many great new names we hadn't thought of. I highly suggest you check it out.

Its a Boy!!!!

We had an ultrasound on Monday and we found out that we are having a little boy. We are both so excited! We have two little nephews, so we have had a little practice with boys. My sister just had a little girl a few weeks ago, so that is our first niece.

Now the naming game begins. We had a girl name picked out, but we have always struggled with boy names. If any of you have suggestions on good boy names, please let us know!! Below is a pic of the baby's profile. My wife thinks he looks like me!!

I smell, the mirror smells, everything smells!!!

So the latest in the pregnancy craziness is my wife's hound dog sense of smell. Everything smells to her and it all stinks. Sometimes I will go to give her a hug and as I lean in she stops me and says, "Ewwww you smell!!" I ask her what it is I smell like and she doesn't know, but I just smell. The other day she asked me to smell the bathroom mirror, so I smelled it and thought that it smelled like a mirror should smell (whatever that smell may be). The wife, however, thinks that the mirror smells horrible and she now covers her nose every time she has to go into the bathroom. Oh, and I tried cleaning it multiple times, but I guess it just isn't going away.

We had our second doctor appointment today and things are all on the right track! We listened to the heartbeat (which still amazes me!). We are going to try and find out what we are having sometime in the next week or so. I will let you know as soon as I do!
