The BIG Scan

Just back from the BIG scan!

Following a few days of constant movement, Baby decided it would choose today to have a niiiiiiice long rest. The sonographer had a pretty hard time getting all the necessary measurements, and after an hour, gave up and sent me off for a walk. Cue ipod headphones carefully positioned on my stomach at full volume, and a bakewell tart. It seemed to do the trick. Back on the table two hours after our original appointment, Baby had regained some of the energy I'm used to feeling. We got all the measurements needed, declared Baby healthy as far as the scan can tell and sent us on our way. Happy faces.

And of course, we also now know what Baby is. I am dying - DYING!!! - to tell you all, but for a few more days it'll remain David's and my little secret. We were having a little get-together this coming week and, pretty much inspired by Maria Fe over at Layers of Meaning, we are going to use that occasion to anounce the gender to our closest friends and family before anyone else. I'll announce it here soon enough :) (Boy do I feel mean!!!)

But in the meantime, why don't you go ahead and place your bets? What do you think? Boy or Girl? :)

  1. my bet... girl :)))))

  2. Ohhhhh you! Why is everyone being so sneaky lately?! My good friends are obviously eloping rightthisminute, as hinted all over facebook, but they're not admitting it to anyone! I'm going mad with all these secrets!
    And I say girl!

  3. i say girl. don't know why, just a hunch.

  4. Boy.
    Have you thought about names yet? =)

  5. Yeah :) We pretty much know what this little one will be called :) x

  6. I spoke to David a couple of days ago. The name is settled. It's either Clavid or Dare. I like Clavid personally. It fits in with all the Clifton, Claiven, and Cleavages we have running around on the island. :p

  7. LOLOL I don't even want to imagine the confusion in the house if that were the case!!! :P

  8. so I was righT!!!! :)))))))
