95% sure we are having a...

On Wednesday, we had our optional gender scan. They told me I was able to do this at 16 weeks, and my appointment was at 16w2d.

Unfortunately, we didn't get my favorite u/s tech. We got Belle's dad (Maurice) from Beauty and the Beast again.

Sure, he's a nice fellow. But he barely talks. I have to really prod information out of him. And that's no fun, let's be honest. Sarah, my favorite u/s tech, is so sweet, and spends assloads of time with me. I made sure to make my anatomy scan appointment with her.

Anyway, back to the appointment. Maurice, in his typical fashion, didn't really say much of anything for at least five minutes. Awkward! Luckily I had just met with my doctor and heard baby's heart on the doppler, otherwise I might have freaked. Baby was being super lazy, and not really moving much at all! What is with this kid?

Finally Maurice gets a decent potty shot. I really don't know much about potty shots. Yeah, I know a turtle thing means boy, and three lines means girl. But depending on the angle, it all kind of looks the same anyway!

Maurice says, "Well, I think we have a little boy here."

Squeee!

Wait, you think???

I ask him, "How sure are you?"

"95%," he replies.

That 95% was based on this photo:


Then, baby moved, and a better angle was visible.


The label job is all mine. Buster asked me to label it "wenis" so he could post the photo on FB. Yes, I'll have two little boys in the house, it seems...

After baby boy moved and we got the above angle shot, I asked Maurice if that made him even more confident that baby was indeed a boy, and he said yes. So, I'm feeling pretty confident now.

I go back in less than two weeks for my anatomy scan, and we can verify then.

In the meantime... I bought my first baby items! Ok, well, my very first baby purchases were about three years ago. I picked up some tiny baby Puma socks at TJ Maxx, one boy set and one girl set. But they have been quietly and sadly living in my sock drawer all this time. So I don't really count those as my first baby purchases.

I hit up Target. And what is the first thing I see that I just have to get?

So, so true.
I couldn't resist! Then I snagged this cute little NB onesie, that baby boy will definitely get his picture taken in (with some jeans and a pair of chucks? Or socks that look like chucks?):


And finally, I picked up a 3-piece set that was on sale. It's 6M size, so I'm hoping baby Henry will be able to wear it in the summer! It's a striped tank-top onesie, matching gray shorts, and a cute striped alligator t-shirt! The onesie has this patch on it:

Cute alligator t-shirt:

Oh, and in case you are newer to my blog, or missed my post where I revealed our choice for a boy name, I'll give you a refresher. We have had the name Henry picked out for years. And the inspiration is a dog.

Yes, you read that correctly. We will be naming our son after a dog.

Not just any dog, though! The most regal, sweet, caring, handsome Golden Retriever ever. He was Buster's aunt's dog, and he happily lived for 13 years. He was the reason I wanted to get a Golden Retriever.

And Buster has a cute story. One time, when visiting his aunt's farm, Buster trekked into the surrounding forest to gather some firewood. He stumbled on a log or uneven ground, fell and skinned up his knee. He looked up, and there was Henry. Checking on him. Making sure he was ok. What a sweet ol' boy, right?

So yes, we are naming our son after a dog, but we are not ashamed of that.

  14. Congratulations on finding out :) Definitely looks like a boy to me. We found out V was a boy at 16wks too, at that stage it's harder to tell if it's a girl but boys are pretty clear!

    I love the bib and the onesie with the tie!

  17. Congratulations on your (very probably a) baby boy!

    I think it's great that you're naming him after a dog. My husband and I have discussed the possibility of naming any future son of our after our dear departed dog, Seamus.

  20. Henry's are the BEST! That's a great reason to chose a name. Our story is lame, but true: "um, we stole it from another couple in our birthin' class."

    Congrats on YOUR Henry!

  22. Congratulations! Henry is a lovely name, so classic and yet quite uncommon, I like it, it would be on my list except it sounds terrible (and I mean cartoon super hero silly) with our surname.

    You are going to have so much fun once he shows his face!

  38. Congratulations on a baby boy! I am now convinced that baby boys are awesome. And, of course, I adore the name Henry (check out my blog if you haven't). He will be totally worth the wait.

  39. Congrats to you and Buster! You need to blog more! I know you're busy, but I've been a long time lurker (never have commented before) and I've been silently cheering you on for a couple of years now. I'm so excited this is it for you and I want updates on the happy, day-to-day preggo stuff!

  40. My rainbow 'worth the wait' baby was born July 9. He is also a Henry & his name also has a dog connection. His muddle name, Bishop, is the name my DH always wanted to name a dog. A dog isn't inthe forseeable future, so he was ok using it for the kid. Plus we figure the kid would want to name the dog.
