It's A Boy!

We finally found out that we are expecting a boy! It's so great to finally know for sure, so we can finish up our nursery and register for more baby items. We had a slight scare a few days ago, I hadn't felt the baby move for about 2 days, we tried all the tricks that have worked in the past, but didn't have any luck. So I finally called my doctor (I was so worried she would think I was just overreacting) but they told me to come into the office right away. She was able to find the heartbeat and got out her old ultrasound machine, we saw the baby moving around and kicking me quite hard, but I wasn't feeling it. The baby was head down, which is abnormal for him, so she thought maybe that was the reason I wasn't feeling anything, or that I had a pinched nerve. So we monitored it for the day, and decided that I would get another high tech ultrasound, just to make sure. Everything looked great during the ultrasound, the baby is 2 pounds, 6 ounces and is VERY active. I am starting to feel the baby more and more each day, so that is reassuring. And we found out that our baby is a boy... Nate is very happy! He told me from the beginning that he only makes boys, so of course, he is very happy to be right (for once). But we need help on a name, we had a girl's name, and we have narrowed it down to 2 names for a boy:

Bailey Alexander Connaway (Bailey is my maiden name, and I am the last Bailey in the family. Alexander was my mother's father's name).
Jacob "Jake" Charles Connaway (We just like the name Jake, and Charles is Nathan and his dad's middle name, his grandfather and uncles first name.)

Vote on our name poll:

Let us know your opinions, if you have a preference or if you have another name you would like to share with us. The picture below is baby looking at you and yawning and me at 28 weeks along!
