So as I stated earlier this week, I had a follow-up ultrasound on Tuesday to get a few more pictures of this little one, and to see if we could get a look at the "goods." They wanted me to come 2 weeks after the initial ultrasound so when I made a reservation for AJ to go to hourly care the only time slot they had available was from 8:30-10:30 and my appointment was scheduled at 9:30.
I'm usually out of there with plenty of time to get back and pick her up, but for some reason, they were really far behind on Tuesday. I finally got called back at 9:55 and was in the ultrasound room by 10:00. I was worried that the tech would have trouble seeing the gender again and it would take longer and make me late getting AJ (which I was anyway and they charge $1/minute you're late...highway robbery, I tell you!).
Anyway, I don't want to keep you all in suspense any longer than I already have by rambling on and on...
We found out that Baby #2 is a....
We're very excited to have a baby sister to add to the family and are furiously trying to decide on names that go well with AJ's name. AJ, however is in a state of denial, I think, because when I told her that she is going to have a baby sister she told me that she is the big sister. I agreed with her and said, yes, but the baby is a girl baby, to which she then replied that the baby is a boy baby. Haha!
Oh well, she'll understand eventually, and someday they'll be arguing over clothes, make-up and who knows what else!
As far as how I'm feeling, I am very happy, but very, very surprised because I really thought that we were having a boy this time around. I'm thrilled that we'll be able to reuse the clothing that we have saved from AJ, and also a little relieved because I know girls. I know what to expect and how to handle things like diaper changes, etc.
After it was determined that this baby is a girl, the ultrasound tech was scanning and she casually asked me if we were going to try again after this one to get a boy.
Nope, two girls is enough for me! ;)
