Matteus? Not sure of how to pronounce your Dh's original Polish version, but maybe it's just different enough? There are a lot of Michael's, but that is because it is a nice name. :)

We found out all three times. We were going to do the 20 week scan either way so might as well find out. I agree with BlessedOne, it's still a surprise at 20 weeks but this way I (we) can plan! :)
