I did feel a lot of pressure for the tech to say "Girl! You see that? It looks like a hamburger. That's a girl," for my mom. What a sweet surprise that would have been for her 31st wedding anniversary.
Either way...GIRL or BOY, we would be happy. We had names picked out for both. I had nursery patterns picked out for both. We would be good either way. But I felt like I owed it to my mom to deliver a granddaughter. How ridiculous is that?!!? It's not even up to ME!! She can thank Matt.
At the doctor's office we met my sister in the parking lot and Matt in the waiting room. We chatted about what we thought the outcome was going to be, Matt and I mostly listening while my mom told my sister she thought it was a girl and my sister telling my mom she thought it was a boy. And we waited. And then we waited. Just when we thought it was time (an hour after my appointment time), we continued waiting.
IT'S A BOY.
It is obviously a boy. There is no questioning that. And what do you know, I had on a blue shirt.
His profile. He's just chillin'.
He finally got his thumb in his mouth after resting his chin on it.
He stuck his tongue out at us too. The twig-looking things are his arms. To the right of that, his chin, and the black circle with the gray in it is his tongue. His tongue is the gray part. Then his nose and eyes further to the right.
Kristen finished her measurements and my mom, full of questions, asked them and poor Kristen couldn't answer. I filled my mom in and told her she could save the questions for my doctor. After the ultrasound we had a bit more time to wait. My sister had left and Matt had returned to work. My doctor came in and assured me everything looks good and baby is measuring on target and was average for just about every measurement that was done. Relief came over me that I didn't know I needed. Baby boy is good. That makes for a happy mama.
And now, let the boy planning begin. The crib and bedding are done. I love it. I find myself
wanting to go in and just look at it. Plans are in the works for the walls and art pieces.
