It's a BOY!!

Ty and I had to go to a specialist for our 16 week appointment.  My test results came back positive for being a carrier for the cystic fibrosis gene.  Tyler had blood work done but my regular doctor referred us to the specialist to go over the results.  We got his results which were NEGATIVE (phew) which was a huge weight lifted off of our shoulders.  The only negative thing about me being a positive carrier and Ty being a negative carrier is that the baby has a 50/50 chance of being a positive carrier.  This won’t affect the baby (or any of our babies) until they start having children of their own.  If their partner is also a positive carrier then their baby will be born with cystic fibrosis…… nothing to be too worried about until we cross that path many many years from now.  Since we were seeing a specialist she wanted to do an ultrasound to make sure everything else was o.k.  She has a much more advanced machine than any of the doctor’s so we were hoping she could tell us the sex.  As she was moving around looking at the baby she asked if we wanted to know the sex, I replied “ABSOLUTELY”, and then she pointed to the genitals and asked what we thought it was….. it was not hard to see that it was a BOY!  Tyler and I were really hoping for a girl but were definitely sooooo happy to find out it was a boy!  Can’t wait to meet our little man in a few months :) 

Thumbs up dude!

Definitely a wee wee
