Ok so, it is a boy!!

Beachplants(Z11)February 8, 2013

Hi guys,

We are now done with all the tests, all good, all toes, legs, arms, fingers...+ heart and so on all good. Amnio also done!

It is a little boy and this was taken today - he is 20 weeks and 5 days! I think he weighs 320g more or less and length of a banana (16.4 - 17cm)

So there!

Thanks so much, Gill, Seed and Rosemary

yes Rosemarie, I do not care about anything else, just baby & mom's health! All is good, so I am very happy and proud - we already saw a trait - he has my wife's feet, shorter big toe, my family is the opposite - not sure if it will stay like that but we had a good laugh non the less!

Congratulations to you and your wife. The photos are awesome! Can't get over the detail of the ultra sounds now. Nothing like when I had my children.

Congrats, Rian! You're going to make a great father with your nurturing spirit. I know one trait he'll have that you can't see yet... he's going to be born with a green thumb!

Stephanie - thanks, we are actually trying to involve my parents as much as possible, this is something they also have not seen.

Thanks Ryan, wife said if this kid is as entrepreneurial, he will sell the plants on ebay when I am not here! LOL!

So good to hear that all is healthy and kicking. At least it will be winter down there. It is hard to deal with heat when fully loaded with child. I took off for ther northern mountains to escape the Texas summer. I got home one week before the deed. may you replicate in peace and health.

How exciting--your first baby pic! Glad everything is going so well--you have such a wonderful life journey ahead of you.

And I have to agree with the quality of the pictures. Very little detail in the one I got 32 years ago.

Thanks, the top one is a pic of a video I took with the mobile phone!! Looks better on video and to see the hart and the valves working, amazing! Some people do not want to see these things, we want to experience every little thing as much as possible.
