The big reveal!!!

Sorry it has taken a while for me to post about this but my morning/anytime sickness has returned and I have been very queasy and puking for the last 2 days.No fun.It joined my migraines and my bad chest cold I have and made me one miserable momma.The u/s went good and we got some pics of our darling baby.I will not get the actual results until my appointment on thursday july 30th this coming week.However the tech asked us if we wanted to know the gender and we were like "of course" and as she was looking and measuring everything she got a great bottom view with legs spread.And it's a BOY! He was moving all over the place he was so active and kicking and as usual he was stroking his precious little face.In all of the u/s's that we have had since about 10 weeks he is always rubbing or touching his face,it's adorable!He likes his thumb too.Now for the other news it looks as though the hematoma may be gone,I asked the tech if she could see it and she said she didn't at all.I am cautiously optimistic that it is gone as I do know other women from my hematoma online support group that were told they couldn't find theirs just to have them show up 2 weeks later on u/s.It has been 5 weeks since they looked at mine and the majority do resolve by 20 weeks if they are going to.So anything could have happened.I am hoping that the daily prayer for the baby's safety and the healing of the hematoma has worked.When the tech was doing the measurements etc she was like he is breech right now and then later she was like now he has turned around and now he has again.He is so active which makes me feel better that he is doing well,It was kinda cool because she could tell me what was where in me so I knew if it was a foot or an elbow that was kicking or hitting me.I thought I could tell when he turned because I had a lot of pressure and aches (which she told me I was right) and she was able to let me know where some of my discomfort came from and make it seem normal by explaining why and what I was feeling.So I now know a kick from an elbow bump.It was great to watch him and be able to relate it to my sensations.Girls I am so in love and this made it so much more real! No more saying it kicked or it moved, now I can say he kicked or he moved.Next phase is naming our miracle.So in closing I would like to say I had a feeling it was a boy and even voted boy on my poll.I did not share this with DH or anyone as I did not want to suade anyone one way or another.But for some reason I kept visualizing a boy and here he is.I love him just love him!!

Here's one of his tiny feet!


Here's a good profile shot.


Here is a 3D shot of our precious baby boy,it was love at first sight,he looks so peaceful all snuggled up in there.


Here is another 3D pic in this one he has his mouth in an "O" shaped like he is saying "oh" or is ready for a bottle.We got a few other's but they are not as good because he was moving so much.


They got a good shot between his legs.This is a view from the bottom looking up.They have an arrow on the umm part we were looking for LOL.
