It's a ...........

Is it EVER a boy!  I think Mr. Dawson Paul is proud of his "goods"! 

I just am beside myself.  I KNEW I KNEW it was boy.  Of course, I didn't care, but I KNEW it was!  Dawson was so active and moving around!  He was measuring perfect!  Actually 4 days ahead of schedule...but she said it didn't change my due date.

The lady who did our ultrasound knows Matt!  Matt went to school with her kids...she is going to my sister-in-law's wedding this weekend even!  Crazy small world!

Anyway, here are some more pictures!

This one was one where he was sucking his thumb!  YES!  It was amazing!  He would miss his mouth and his hand would go crazy until he found his mouth again and then his little mouth would just suck away!  It was amazing!

Look at those pouty lips!  Looks like Dawson has my nose and Matt's mouth.  Matt has good lips!  :-)  His head was measuring big!

Here are his little legs!  Nice and athletic like his daddy!

Anyway, mom and Matt went with me.  Matt kept asking Mrs. Cindy to take a picture of this and that!  Mom was practically laying across me to get to the ultrasound screen!

It was an amazing time.  I am in awe still!  I just laid there speechless!

She said everything looked good...4 chambers of the heart, function stomach and bladder, perfect looking spine, you could even see his ribs!  We saw his cute little feet and hands!  It was sooooo cool.

I will type more tomorrow!  A boy!!  He is estimated to weigh about 8 oz!

Congrats! Boys are awesome! My oldest son was sucking his thumb in his first ultrasound, too, and we tried to get him to take a pacifier when he was born, but he never took to anything but his thumb. He did grow out of it though, at about 4 or 5.

Congrats!!! I honestly don't remember how I found your blog :) but I've been following for a while now and went back to read all your posts leading up to this pregnancy. I'm so happy for you -- my sister had years of problems too, so I have a huge soft spot for women who struggle with getting pregnant and/or saying pregnant.

Congratulations again! I've never commented but just had to let you know that I'm so glad all looked well and that your little BOY is doing great.
