We had our 13 week ultrasound today to do all the genetic screens - all that turned out fine, thankfully! We were really there to get a glimpse at our babe, who was squirming and flipping and flailing around. We could see the spine, the brain, the stomach, five little fingers and little feet. It was amazing!
I was hoping we'd get lucky and find out the gender today ... and it looks like we're having a BOY! It's not official yet, but it looks pretty obvious on the picture to me. If I get a chance, I'll take a picture of our printout and post it here.
EDIT: Here are two pictures from our ultrasound - sorry they're not very clear! It's hard to take pictures of ultrasound printouts at this time of night! One is of the baby and the other is of his "business". Cute, right??
So glad that everything looks good and that you might already get to know the gender!

Yay that's so exciting! I only get two u/s with the military (unless I wanna pay out of pocket to go somewhere else and get one). One for dating purposes (or else I bet they wouldn't even do that ha ha) and then one to make sure everything is developing correctly and try to tell the gender. They do that between weeks 20-24. Next week I have my 15 week appt then get to make my appt for the big u/s! I'm so excited!

Wow! I'm so glad that everything came out good and your little bean is healthy!! And how cool that you already know what you are having! I'll get to find out in mid November.
I have heard of several other people who were able to find out at their 12 or 13 week ultrasound but I didn't know if it would happen for us. I'm so excited! We're still not buying any really overt "boy" things until we have our big anatomy scan in December. I've never heard of a boy later turning out to be a girl ... but I could be wrong!
