…GIRL! It has been over a week since we found out. And for all of you that picked “girl” on Facebook and Instagram, were right! It was terribly hard keeping it from you guys, but we had to make our calls and send out snail-mail to all our friends and family to be sure they knew first before announcing online.
At the ultrasound, the technician was explaining that if you see three bright lines around the gentile area it’s a…(and I for sure thought she would say boy), but I was so wrong. And I was in complete shock when she said girl. Brian squeezed my hand and smiled so big, and said, “are you excited?!!!” I think he was concerned I was sad because I was just sitting there still and taking it all in. I got a little teary and just said, “yes, yes, I am so excited, I can’t believe it!”
I had a feeling in my gut that is was a girl, and I mentioned in this post that I dreamed about her being a girl, but now that we know for sure…the knowledge has really taken pregnancy to an entirely different level. I feel closer to her, I have started to plan the nursery, and we began tackling the name game (which is incredibly hard for me). At this point I fee like I have read every girl name known to man.
Rewind to a month ago…
I was sitting in the salon getting my hair done a few weeks before we were going to find out the sex of the baby and my hairstylist and I were chit-chatting and the women next to me waiting for her hair to set, said, ” you aren’t going to find out the sex of the baby are you?!!” I responded and said, “we are, why?” She proclaimed…”well this is the only true surprise you will ever have in life and if you find out you will ruin the surprise.” I said, ” well, to me, even if I find out halfway through pregnancy as apposed to when I deliver, I will still be surprised.” She really didn’t have an answer. And I know some people decide to wait, and that’s fine. But Brian and I just aren’t those types of people. I like to plan and daydream about stuff and knowing has just made pregnancy that much more enjoyable and fun for us.
And no matter what your choice is, to be surprised at 20 weeks or at 40 weeks, it’s your journey and don’t let anyone try and change your mind.
Now…back to picking a name for this little girl…
p.s. thank you for stopping by and reading our journey and sharing this exciting time with us!
