My ultrasound was earlier this week.
We decided to take all the boys with us this time and beforehand I had each of the older three guess if it was a boy or girl. Evan guessed, boy, Seth, girl and Kane, girl. I was surprised Seth guessed girl because he's been telling me for weeks that he wants it to be a boy!
At 21 weeks, this was the furthest I'd been along for my "anatomy sono" so the baby was more squished than usual and kept its legs together for most of the appointment.
At the very end the technician told us that she'd seen flashes and was fairly confident of the gender but wanted to try to move the baby to get a better look and hopefully picture for us before announcing it.
I turned on my side while she tapped my belly with the wand. I suddenly became anxious. Would we have to take our tech's word for it on the gender of our baby? Come on kid open your legs!
Then she got the shot... there it was in black and white, three little lines!
We're having a girl!!
Just to give you a little perspective on mine and Jed's mindset when we walked into the appointment here's the conversation we had had the night before, after settling on three potential boy names.
Jed: "What if it's a girl?" (said as if it was the first time the possibility had crossed his mind)
Me: "Ha, babe, at this point, I don't think you produce X chromosomes. We're good."
Needless to say, we're in shock right now. In a good way though! Now its back to the drawing board on names!
And as of the end of our appointment I've been banned from going to Target by myself! Thankfully Jed doesn't know about Etsy! :)
He's still my baby boy!
