If you've been following along for the past month or so, you know that I had my anatomy scan a few weeks ago and all looked great! We were able to get a good look at the little guy (or girl) and it was wonderful to finally be able to see the baby.
You may also remember that the ultrasound tech was not able to get a good look at the "goods" in order to make an educated guess on the gender of our baby. Well, tomorrow we go back for another try. I'm really nervous, but also not.
D won't be with me this time, as he is currently TDY, but I'm excited to hopefully find out the gender. However, if for whatever reason this baby is uncooperative again I'm not going to be all bent out of shape about it. I mean, I have tons of girl stuff. I have lots of friends with baby boys. I will dress baby in green and yellow for the first day of his or her life until we can figure out what color is more appropriate. ;) I do want to know the gender, but it will be kind of exciting to find out on his or her birthday!
I am nervous (in a very excited way) about seeing this little guy (or girl) again, though! It was almost strange last time. I may have mentioned that this pregnancy really doesn't feel real to me yet. It still hasn't really sunk in, despite the baby swing, bouncy seat and breast pump sitting in the bedroom upstairs. A good friend of mine brought over a car-load of stuff for me to use with this baby. I am so grateful that she is willing to give me all her stuff.
I mean, that stuff is expensive and to be honest, we got rid of a lot of it. We couldn't see moving 2 times with an entire room full of baby stuff that we didn't know when we'd use again. Last year when we thought we were moving for a third time I loaded up some of the bigger items and sold them at Once Upon a Child. I figured we'd either need it again soon, and in that case we'd buy it right back from them or we wouldn't and I wouldn't have to worry about schlepping it around the country again.
Anyway, mother's intuition is saying boy this time around. I don't really know why. I can't explain it, but I am feeling boy. I refer to the baby as a "him" all the time. My pregnancy has been much different than when I was pregnant with AJ, but I also vaguely felt like she was a boy (though not as strongly as I feel this time).
I'll be back tomorrow (or Wednesday) after I've informed hubby and my family to let you know the outcome of the ultrasound!
What is your vote? Are we having a boy or a girl?
