It is a...

BOY!!!!

This is the picture from his 15 week ultrasound, because todays was a very in depth ultrasound so you could see bones, kidneys, etc. and his... other part is a little bit harder to see. :) But he's definitely a HE!

Oakland has been super happy to have a brother, Josh is completely excited. I have to be honest... and don't get me wrong, I'm really happy. I am just a little anxious. My little man intimidates me. My sister in law explained it really good, I'm nervous to hold another little boy. One that is not Mac. And it's all really familiar, having a boy....

So the full anatomy ultrasound went really well, the pool of blood wasn't there any longer. They measure every inch of him- bones, brain, distance between eyes. Looked at his heart, stomach, kidney... all of it. They then looked at my uteras, amount of amniotic fluid, and everything looks amazing. And not just amazing for me- but things are looking up. I'm 18 weeks and 1 day pregnant and he was actually measuring 19 weeks and 2 days, but they won't move my due date until he's measured that way a few times. I had a few contractions while they were doing the ultrasound but nothing I could feel and they didn't seem worried- just told me to watch it.

So unless there are more complications, then I'll have another appointment in 4 weeks. I can already feel him kick, but only when I'm sitting really still and no one else can feel it yet. We need help deciding on names- and we better hurry or my Mom and Oakland will continue to call him Carl! Thoughts?

That's so great!! We're having a boy, too, at the end of July and I wish I could be more help with names. We've been stressing over it for months now! It's so fun that Oakland is so involved - I don't think Mav has any clue, even when Mom's stomach keeps kicking him. I'm so glad everything seems to be going well. You're in our prayers!

Yay! I am so happy for you and so glad everything is going well. As for name suggestions...well, we've never been the boy route so I am not the one to ask. :)

Cali! I don't know if you remember me, but we worked together at Desert Star FOREVVVER ago. I am so thrilled you are having another little boy. I bet Mac was searching for perfect candidates and sent you little Carl;) My name suggestion is Emmerson. OH.MY.CUTE. Emmerson Hinkley. Emmerson Makallister Hinkley. Emmerson Joshua Hinkley. Seriously, it's all great. I hope you continue to post throughout your pregnancy and about your life because this is the only way I can keep track of what you're doing! Take care

I think what you are feeling is so normal. I will be so nervous if I get pregnant with a girl. I dont't feel confidant I can get a girl here safe. It's such a mind thing. I am excited for you! Names, yes, think quick. Carl doesn't really go with Oakland and Mac :)

Let us know when you get a name. We still pray every night for you and "baby" and McKay would understand better with a name. Love you tons!
