Well, we got back from the doc’s a little earlier today where we got the gender news and found out we are having a little lad! We will call him Thomas Jefferson Guzek…..or possibly Benjamin Franklin Guzek…..or just Gary Guzek….who knows–we have time. In any event, we also did a full ultrasound sweep where they measured and viewed just about every aspect of him – arms, legs, hands, feet, heart (including all 4 chambers and valves) lungs, stomach and a bunch of other stuff I didn’t even know existed. We heard his heart beat and found out he is approximately 1 pound 14 ounces. We had a scare early on when they thought they saw a third leg growing!! But then they realized that he was just a Guzek….and that he was a boy. Everything checked out perfectly so far, so things are oh so good!
He looked so much more baby-like than the last time I saw him. He had features and he was making pretty normal-looking movements. Between that and knowing it is now a boy (and obviously better looking and stronger than all the other 21 week old babies), things just go more interesting for Mr. Dad. I am more motivated now to tackle…….setting up the nursery! Game on!
