Yesterday was the day that I feel like I’ve been waiting a million years for – the 20 week ultrasound! Since we’re only allowed 2 extra people in the room, and I couldn’t choose between my 2 kids, I invited my mom to come along and take a look as baby got checked out.
The sonographer asked if we wanted to know the gender, to which I replied, “YES!!! TELL ME NOW!!!” (or something like that).
Then I sat back and waited patiently while she checked out and measured all the vital stuff and made sure we have a healthy baby in there.
Finally, she took a peek and there was absolutely no denying that we are having a baby BOY!
The little guy is measuring about a week and 2 days ahead of my original due date, so I’m anxious to see if my doc decides to change the date or if she thinks I’m just having a ginormous baby (which would not be at all surprising). The original due date was set by an early ultrasound, so it may be that he’s just a big baby. I’m all for having this baby a week earlier though!
Hubby made me promise not to tell the kids until we were all home, which nearly killed me, but I kept my mouth shut. When we finally told them, they were very excited. Evie, who has wanted a baby sister all along said, “Yay! I wanted a baby brother!” Zach was thrilled as well since he’s been hoping for a boy the whole time.
And now I get to start digging through my basement and getting rid of all of the pink/purple girlie stuff…
