Our hearts were filled with excitement this morning, just before the baby will be getting a deeper identity. For the past 4 months, it had always been "bean", or "our baby", today we know whether its a he or she. Its amazing, it feels completely different to know your baby's gender. There is an extra bond, a more graspable image of the person inside. Heres the ultrasound for the answer!

And thats one of the few occasions where you can post pictures of genitalia on blogs without getting the censorship review committee bursting in through your window.

Its a boy! One of the things Ade said was "is that the K-- K-- J----!!!" Following that were further speculations and also positive comments made on the proportion of the above mentioned to the rest of the body, resulting in a really hilarious ultrasound session. Though we will not be shopping for pretty little frocks as Ade had envisioned, our joy of seeing a healthy baby boy did not stop her from buying the first set of body suits for him. Its a set of 5 from Marks and Spencers. When we got to the car, we examined the first pair. The size of that body suit was hilarious. It's so small. so so so so so small. WAahahahahah.

The other piece of good news is that the baby measures 105mm, which was within a healthy range for 16wks and 4 days. That number cracked me up because this whole week, i was doing some detail drawings where the dimension of some of the walls had to be 105mm, which was the length of half a brick. It was a number which was etched in my mind. Thats how big our baby is now, the width of an internal wall.

OK darling.

Let the shopping begin.

Oh..... it has already started.
