Today we had our anatomy scan and found out we are having a....
This wan't a big surprise because at my 14 week appointment my doctor told me it looked like a boy, but that it was early and things could change so we shouldn't go out and buy little blue outfits just yet. Now we know for sure!
I would have been happy to have a girl so I could use all of Sophie's clothes and blankets we have in storage, but am very excited about a boy as well! (I may even have a box of little boy stuff in the closet I have been keeping just in case!) We told Sophie she was going to get a brother and asked her what his name should be, and without even a seconds pause she responded "Dragon." We have a different name picked out for him, but haven't broken the news to her yet :)
Little Dragon's ultrasound went well, although the doctor did find a choroid plexus cyst that we'll have checked out in a couple weeks. Cysts like this can be a sign of a chromosomal disorder if other abnormalities are present, but everything else looked normal. We were told not to worry and that there are high chances it will resolve on it's own in the next few weeks. I am not too nervous and am hopeful the follow-up ultrasound will be clear and put all worries to rest.
