Ultrasound (US) Update

I am SO STINKIN' TIRED from my work day (it's 930 pm and I just finished documentation!) but I promised an update and an update you will get! I'll show the pics first then tell y'all what Dr. P said.

IMPORTANT NOTE: IF YOU ARE AN EXPERT US READER AND CAN TELL FROM THESE PICS THE GENDER OF BABY BOO, I WILL BE DEVISTATED IF ANYONE, INCLUDING ME, FINDS OUT. THANKS!

 
You are looking at Baby Boo's face. It looks like it has a pointy chin like me and my sisters :) The arms/hands aren't very clear in this picture because the doctor said Baby Boo was jumping around a lot!
 
 
Another pic featuring Baby Boo's face...but, this time, you can see its little hand...and its mouth is open :)
 
 
A little footsie! All 5 toes present!!!
 
This was such an emotional experience. I cried the entire time (in a good way, of course). Every night/morning, before my appointments, I get so paranoid that my little baby isn't going to be in there. It was so cool to see all most of its parts! The doctor showed us the brain and said there are no signs of spina bifida. He then looked at the heart and it showed all chambers and no signs of defects. He measured the femur and said the baby is the right size for 18 weeks.
 
I asked Dr. P what position the baby was in and he said Baby Boo was all over the place...jumping and bouncing around (gets that from mom)! I could see the babes making a sucking motion with its mouth but it didn't have a thumb in it. At the very end of the US, Baby Boo fell asleep! The doctor poked around on my stomach to wake it up but it kept sleeping (gets that from dad)!
 
I have no idea what the gender is but I've noticed myself saying he/his a lot. I'm not sure if that's a motherly instinct or just because it's a general term. Who knows?! Either way, this was one of the coolest things I've ever experienced!
