Are You Ready For the NEWS!?!?!?!!!!!!!?

So, the wait at the doctor wasn't near what I thought it was going to be...I just made sure to talk a lot. So much that I didn't even hear my name being called the first time! Back I went to the scale, then I had to give a urine sample, and then it was a little wait before I was taken to a part of the doctor's office I have never been in. I can't even begin to explain the feeling I was having in my tummy...I was so excited...so ready to know the sex of the child growing inside of me.

The lady that did the sonogram was excellent. You could tell that she knew just what she was doing and what she was looking for. She was quick to find everything that she was looking for. It was impressive and so incredible to look at images of the brain, watch her measure the spine, to see the compartments of the heart. It was so indescribable seeing my baby. And then it was time...to see whether there were boy or girl parts. Luckily, the baby wasn't moving so we were able to get good shots of what was needed...other than a good face shot. It was a little frustrating because the baby had been so active ALL DAY LONG! Guess he/she was worn out and needed the nap. Alright on to what you are here for...

Are you ready to know what we found out!!?????!?????????????

Actually, maybe I shouldn't post since I can't scan the picture and just wait until tomorrow...

GIRL!!!!!!!! :)


That's right. My baby has girl bits. Can you believe it? I was so excited. A wave of emotion like never before washed over me in that instant. It was something that I never even dreamed possible. We have ourselves a baby girl cooking. A little sweet angel. I can't stop smiling and thinking about it. It is so nice to know. I can't stop thinking about it and I am so excited to go shopping and start planning.

So good job for all of you that guessed girl. You were definitely the majority. There were only a handful of people that guessed boy. I know I have been saying that I haven't had a feeling and that was true up until today. And I think I only told two people what I actually woke up feeling and it was actually a girl. Pretty crazy huh? All night all I could think about was babies and for some reason, I just kept leaning toward a girl.

We got to tell the kids tonight too. We went straight from the doctor appointment to get them at daycare. When Swae saw us, the first thing that she did was run up and hug me and then ask if the baby was a boy or girl. How cute is that?? We didn't tell her there. Instead, we went out to dinner as a family and then asked the kids one more time what they thought the baby was. To both of our surprise, they both said a girl. And that was when Eli let them know they would be having a baby sister. I wish I could have recorded their faces lighting up. I never want to forget Swae reaching over and hugging me out of joy and excitement. Most of dinner there was talk about their baby sister. Seth even was talking about holding the baby girl! Huge step considering he said he could only hold girl babies! He is just too cute.

So, we have us a baby girl on the way. Our family of four, will now be a family of five with three girls and two boys. Ugh, I can't get over my excitement and pure happiness!

CONGRATULATIONS, Steph.
Girls are so amazing and so much fun :)
And that's so funny that you kinda had a feeling like you might have a girl at the day of the ultrasound too. I had the same with Jayla. I always thought it would be a boy but at the day of the ultrasound I really felt like it would be a girl and it was.
Anyway, have fun buying the cutest little girl outfits, shopping for baby girls is so much fun :))
