Our little bell pepper



As we enter 18 weeks, our little baby is now the size of a bell pepper. He or she is about 5.5 inches long now, and weighs about 7 ounces.

This coming Tuesday we will have our second ultrasound, and with any luck, we will be able to see if we are having a boy or a girl. The main reason for an ultrasound at this point in the pregnancy is to determine if there are any major birth defects visible by ultrasound. There is nothing we could do if a defect is detected and we certainly would do nothing other than pray for the best and prepare for any special needs in this child's life. However, we would appreciate your prayers that we see nothing but a very active and very healthy baby on Tuesday.


I'm keeping a list of guesses around the office and with some friends. So tell us, what are your hunches? Is this a boy or a girl?

That other moss family votes girl 5, boy 1, and baby 1 (Samuel would not vote boy or girl--just baby. Thomas isn't a boy or girl either--just a baby.) Thomas abstains.

We vote Boy! But maybe that vote is slightly swayed by that whole "Porter" name Robert and I both love.

I refuse to guess....I didn't know with mine so I will drive you crazy not knowing yours, tee hee....I think you are having a girl....unless it comes out a boy :-) Girl--definitely a girl...

My vote is on girl, but that's probably because I'm dying to have a niece to spoil! PS-I can barely read your blog anymore with the low contrast (black writing on maroon background).
