Un Petit Garçon?

I'm still having some difficulty in accepting that yes, I am indeed pregnant...it's crazy. For four long years, I've dreamt of the day that I was pregnant. The day that I was able to blog about my bump and cravings and the day I was able to post ultrasound photos. 

That day is here and I'm so incredibly happy about it!

This past weekend I was in Toronto to see friends and attend the Banff Mountain Film Festival , visit the new Ripley's Aquarium at the base of the CN Tower and see my freind Rob's little girl on her 1st birthday. It was a fun filled and exciting weekend. I even managed to get up to the market that sells my south american cheese to make arequipe!

We had a few hours to spare in the afternoon on Friday so I decided to go in and have a 3D ultrasound done. At 14 weeks 1 day, I knew that baby was going to be very small but wow...I was unprepared for how incredible the images were. It was amazing to get to see baby JaAdam moving, waving, shucking it's thumb and rolling over...

The tech did tell me that at such an early gestational age, gender might be hard to determine but she would have a look. If the baby was in the right position with it's legs open...she might get a peek. Well...she was able to get a peek and then some...

Of course she wasn't going to say with 100% certainty but she seemed very confident in saying 'BOY'. I was shocked...I was so sure that this baby was a girl but I think the pictures speak for themselves. We, of course, will not purchase a thing until after my anatomy scan on April 28th but that rule holds true regardless. I'm terrified of bringing anything baby related into my home until after 20 weeks. 

What do you think....un petit garçon?


  1. Yup, that there is a weiner. And I should know, I have two of them inside of me right now. :)

  2. Awe sweet baby boy for sure!

  3. Awe I say boy for sure too!!

  4. I'm no doctor, but I feel pretty confident there's a mini-penis in your tummy right now!!!

  5. Oh yeah, that's definitely a penis. WOO HOO!!!! I've seen plenty of 'em on ultrasounds and yours is WAY fancier of an ultrasound than I had. YAYYYY!!! Boys are the best!!! Congrats!

  6. I've seen a lot of ultrasound wieners... That is surely one! Yay for boys SO.MUCH.FUN!!!!!

  7. I am just checking in after not reading your blog for a few months and WOW, amazing news. So happy for you! Glad to hear all is well.

  8. yay!!!!! Look at that little boy! He is perfect! I love seeing the early ultrasounds when you can get the whole baby in one picture. So cute. I was also paranoid about bringing things home and didn't until after 24 weeks....but then we went crazy :). I am so thrilled for you that you get to be making these posts. FINALLY!!!!

  9. Wow!! "They say" (and my experience supports this) that an early "girl diagnosis" can be wrong, but unlikely with a boy. So, I say...BOY it is! Congrats! I like being a mom to a boy. I can already tell it's going to make me cooler, more active, and more "roll with it." The pics are great. I love the bottom middle photo. I just keep being SO happy for you!

    p.s. I used a lot of quotations in this comment, huh?
