Accidentally found out the gender...

We had our big ultrasound today. The tech had offered to print a picture of the “money shot”, label it and seal it in an envelope for us. Initially we declined. She asked us to close our eyes at the right times and we didn’t see any pertinent anatomy that gave away the sex. Then, at the end of the ultrasound, she discreetly tried to check a box in the corner of the screen. The choices were XX and XY…I saw which one she checked. Without saying why, I asked her if we could get a print out in an envelope after all. I didn’t feel right knowing and Tyson not knowing. So we went to a coffee shop after the appointment and I let Tyson open the envelope and look for himself to see if his baby is a boy or a girl.

It's a BOY![SIZE=2][COLOR=Black]

[FONT=Arial]We were both surprised because we were kind of thinking it was a girl. Smile Now to squabble over names for the next 4.5 months.

We took a video of Daphne revealing the news and posted it to facebook. It's been really fun watching all the comments come in. Smile

Congrats! The u/s tech should have been a little more discrete or told you to close your eyes again!

The usual creepy face-forward one:
