We had our A/S yesterday and baby looks perfect. All the measurements are right on track for our due date, Dec 10. Baby was very active as usual!! Legs were crossed but finally opened up and revealed to us...IT'S A BOY!! I don't think my husband's smile could have been any bigger. We are thrilled. I have to admit I was totally shocked. This whole time I was thinking girl..so much for mother's intuition haha!! But happy and healthy baby is the most important thing!! Let the shopping and nursery planning begin!!
