***I have added pictures to this now!****
Today we had our 20 week ultrasound, and I had anticipated that today would go by REALLY slowly for me because I have been dying to know the gender of our baby, well duh right?
But at 8:30 am this morning I got a call from Kory saying his car was overheating on his way to work! FETCH, and only us right?
So between going and picking him up and dropping his car off and coming home again, just to turn around and pick him back up, today went by quite quickly.
However, the minute I sat in that chair and had that TV in front of me it felt like time just froze. This wasn't the same tech as the one we had with Axel or the one we had for this baby's first one at 10 weeks, who was ultra talkative and informative. She was very quite the whole time, so that made me really nervous, and I kept asking,
"Is that a normal size for her or his I mean it's head, leg neck abdomen?" and she would answer yes, very normal, or spot on. So that was a relief, and I thought that hearing all that would put me at ease, but nope, I still was dying to know if it was a he or a she. (Which brings me to a point, I don't know how people can NOT find out. I know a few people who choose not to know, that would drive me absolutely crazy.)
She showed us the face,
and the feet, which we got a really adorable picture of them crossed and together...
And then she said "Are you interested in knowing the sex?"
"uh YES PLEASE!" was my response
So she got a good angle and said...
"this is the babies leg, and this is it's other leg do you see that?"
" and right here, you will see NO BOY PARTS, so you're having A Girl!"
So there you have it, Kory was right all along, and I my intuition was right as well.
When I started this pregnancy the idea of a girl was like, I guess if it has to be a girl, I'll take it. But as we neared today, the idea of a girl became more and more exciting to me, and just felt right.
I am excited to have a baby girl, I knew one day I would have or want one, I just didn't know it would be so soon. I think Kory will be a very good papa to his daughter, and Axel will be so gentle with his little sister. He will make the perfect older brother. And lets just be honest, having a little dancer girl of my very own!? Heck ya, I will keep her!
