Ok, so after some crying and some texting DH was able to make today's ultrasound. He had to drive straight to the doctor's office from the house at Carolina Beach and left right after to go to the plant to fix some of his tools and head to another house in Sparta, but he was there, and that's what is important - just wish it didn't take so much prying and crying on my part.
But on to the BIG news front. It's a BOY! DH doesn't like it, but I still call him Mini-Vann (DH is Vann). The doctor said he's looking really good, not 100% clear of birth defects, but developing as he should. I saw his feet before his frank and beans and knew he was a boy. He's got his daddy's big ol' feet!
