Introducing:

That’s right Laura and I are going to be parents. We’ve decided we don’t want to know if it is a boy or a girl so the name is to be determined 🙂 Place your bets now on the due date. The docs are saying March 4th.

My boys can swim!

Becca -

I was hoping you were going to post something today!!!

Congratulations to Mama Laura and Papa Scott:) and big doggie siblings Lucy & Calvin. We are so excited for you and can’t wait to meet him/her!

I’m all over a baby pool, if you want me to help. My guess right now is that it won’t be on time and Baby H will arrive March 7…lucky number 7.

And, I think it will be a boy.

I think I’ve congratulated you guys more than a half dozen times now, but once more can’t hurt. Congratulations! Amazing, exciting news. And I predict the baby will come a little late, on my birthday in fact, May 3. 🙂

Sara -

Congrats!!! I’m saying March 8th and a girl!

samh -

March 9th (so she can share her birthday with her Uncle). And no, I’m not going to suggest you name her Steve.

Pete -

Congrats again! Awesome news!

Laura -

🙂 Thanks for all the congrats, everyone. 🙂

Any name ideas are welcome, too, as we don’t talk about that much since we can’t seem to agree. 🙂 Also, this photo is at 8 weeks; as of this post we’re at 15 weeks. We got an extra early ultrasound because for our first appointment they couldn’t detect externally a heartbeat; he-she was still too little! The bright white dot in the middle of this photo is the heart beating at 145/minute, and the head is to the left, soon-to-be legs/feet curled to the right.

Congrats again, you two! Laura, thanks for explaining the geography of the ultrasound image — I was going to ask which end was which. 🙂

Oh yeah, what is the last date to post bets? I would like to see how Laura’s belly grows and apply various old wives tales to determine the sex of baby haraldson.

Dang it Becca, you took my date! and my sex! So I will say the same date 3/7/09, but I’m going with a girl (not by choice, I think it’s going to be a boy). Congratulations Haraldsons–you rock!
