Baby Boy Ford

I just got back from spending a few days in Denver for my friend Alicia's wedding and I have lots of pictures to post, but right now you're getting my most exciting news of the day, which is that I had another ultrasound today and now we are certain that Baby Ford is a boy. We were already fairly sure, but it was really nice to hear that my doctor has no doubts. I’ve been buying a few boy things here and there knowing I could return them if I had to so now I can go home and tear the tags off and starting hanging them up and organizing. We’ll also finally be able to pick a color to paint the nursery.

The other great news is that he’s measuring at about four pounds, which means he’s a little bit small in about the 40th percentile for size, which was a happy surprise since I have gestational diabetes so my doctor has been concerned that he might be too big. He’s already head down so it was a little hard to tell and he may even be smaller than that. I haven’t gained any weight over the last month (I even lost a little), but Baby Ford is still growing and healthy. I’ve had some frustrations over my low-carb diet, but news like that makes it worth it.

Less than eight weeks to go!

If we named him after Jeremiah we'd have to call him President Sharpe!
