On the ceiling of the ultrasound room there were:
52 heavily textured, large tiles on the ceiling,
8 florecent lights (not turned on)
3 dim round lights (turned on)
2 fire sprinkliers,
1 smoke detector, and
1 heating vent
And why would I know this in great detail??? Because apparently in Altus, your spouse can not come in the sonogram room and you are not allowed to see the sonogram screen until the exam is over (about 45 minutes later). So.... I waited and waited and waited as the sono tech did the exam with a stoic face...neither confirming or denying my fears that my baby has three arms, two heads, etc. I obviously had nothing better to do than count the ceiling tiles.
Finally, after 45 minutes, they went and got Nate, and took five minutes to show us the baby's head, arms, and penis.
Yep, you read that correctly. We are having a (third!) BOY!!!! I was RIGHT!!! The good thing is we don't need to buy a thing. We have everything (and then some) for a little boy. I am tired at the thought of three little boys running around here but excited that they will all be close in age and the best of friends (Lord willing!)
We praise God for this little life. He seems to have all the appropriate number of body parts and is becoming very active, just like his brothers.
Thanks for your vote! I know several of you were rooting for a girl. Maybe someday. :)
And a tip to the many Altus mommies going in for their sonogram soon: Bring a book!
