The Verdict Is In: It's A...

Boy! Yep, another boy! I know you were waiting in deep anticipation, exhausting your patience as was I and all, so I won't hestitate in providing the details we received along with the fact that it is a baby brother for Isaiah (whose heartrate was 160 today, so again - like Isaiah - quite high, which typically indicates girl).

It looks to be another large baby, particularly as I've gained significant belly within the past two weeks (seriously, it just blossomed of its own accord and has been growing rapidly).

Ultrasound due date says Jan. 28, 3 days past the initial one, so the baby may be born on his god-mother-to-be's birthday, which would be special.

Name is not yet set in stone by any means, but we've been tossing around Miguel, which would fit into the 6 letter pattern we've somehow established if we choose to keep that going! Greg gets to choose the first name this time, so Miguel is the best one he's come up with (if you know him, you know the alternatives and are crossing your fingers to keep him from following his true name desires...). I've got to start considering middle names, but probably not until we settle on the first - Miguel I actually like, even if it will be a very fair-skinned, possibly blue-eyed Miguel.

Anyhow, so be sure to suggest a guess in our online baby pool at www.expectnet.com (game name: BabyRebelo2). You can access it via the link provided here or to the side as well. Can't wait to see who will win this round!

And last but not least, congrats to the new moms-to-be, whom I'd identify but I don't know if they've okayed that, so hopefully they know who I mean! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that at least one of you has a girl, because I'm desperate to buy dresses and such (if the third isn't a girl for us, it is at least going to wear pink!). And that's all for this evening...

fatigued... take care Nat! ttys, LeanneWe now officially hav ethe same due date!! How exciting...I only hope I can deliver in the same time proximity that you do, and not have a premature baby due to blood pressure issues (again) ...but so far so good..today is my post-ultrasound dr's appt, but I know already they were unable to decipher the gender as the baby wouldn't open it's legs. Boo hoo. ( and yes being like you, I was so intent on knowing the gender, that I did indeed cry when we left the building...pathetic I know, but there's just something about knowing!!!) Anyway, hope you've been feeling well and aren't too
