19 Weeks - It's a Boy! OMG!

I skipped week 18... been a bit distracted plus I knew that this week we'd probably be finding out the sex and so I thought I might as well wait until now.

This morning we went along for our 19 week scan and there on the screen was an unmistakable PENIS! eeeep. It's a boy! I know nothing about boys... this is going to be a huge learning curve all over again! The baby is now known as Zeus.

Everything looks perfect with Zeus and now we just count down to the big reveal in 21 weeks time.

My weight has crept up to 71.5kg, and I'm not surprised as my bump is getting rather big. I need to take a photo - maybe later today!

What else? Mom left for the UK yesterday, which was a wrench. She's been here for a month and it's been great - she totally bonded with Princess and took over a lot of housework, most bathtimes, and lots of book, toddle and playtime. I actually had time to read a few books while she was here!

Princess is asking about her "Ganny" from time to time, but no meltdowns about her absence thank heavens!

Awww, congrats on the balancing of genders in the SaffaChick household. :)

Zeus. It's catchy, and has a nice ring to it. I like it.

Great news folks and I'm sure you have to pull the big guy down off the ceiling a lot. Important part is that you are both well and I'm sure the excitement may ease the absence of the Granny. Enjoy the relative peace of the next few months - next year is going to be a doozy!

Oh wow! Super news and just when you thought you knew it all! Life is going to be very different very soon. Congratulations to both of you and Princess of course! Missing you all madly but will be back for the big event!

wooohoo! Nothing like additional male members (ha ha punny!) in a household. You and Grace will still rule the roost cos CHICK's ROCK!
Congratulations! I can't wait to read about the differences that boys bring to a gal household!
