It’s going to be a boy!

So this has been my biggest fear:

You can see the concern that I would have going into it thinking that it’s a girl! Actually, you should feel concern now that I have mastered some basic video editing concepts and have managed to find a WordPress plugin allowing me to embed videos in my posts. Oh yes. your fear should be great.

We’re going back next month for more because the doctor wasn’t able to see the umbilical cord. It wasn’t until the end when the kid decided to give us a brief glimpse of his naughty bits.

I’m surprised that it took that long though. I’m usually more than willing to expose myself to anybody that asks. Don’t believe me? Try me…

Here’s a long series of images for your perusal. The very last one is the suspect “man” photo. If you look at the big version, you’ll see a little cross hair in the middle and a little white spot next to it. That’s apparently it’s “man part”. The doctor was 95% sure, based on that image and my prodding for a percentage of confidence, that it’s a boy.

That must mean that he gets his manliness from the Goodman side of the family. If it was from me, then there wouldn’t be any doubt or room for error, if you get my drift. I’m sure you do. I’m also sure that I’m going to pay for that comment in many small ways from many individuals.

Enjoy the image scans. As always, click on the image for the big versions.

I discovered that it’s a lot easier to tell what these things are when you’re watching the ultrasound actually happen as opposed to seeing pictures like this after the fact. So, sorry if you’re having trouble telling what it is even with my colorful narrative. It is hard to tell, even for us now.
