It's a GIRL!!!

Adam and Matthew will have a......

We are so excited!!!

The last few days have gone by soo incredibly slowly as I waited for the day of our ultrasound. Last night I  could hardly sleep because of all my excitement and nervousness. I was so worried they would find something wrong with the baby. Then of course I wanted a girl, but didn't want to want a girl too badly, because I didn't want to feel disappointment if it were a healthy baby boy. Basically all the unknowns were driving me crazy!

This morning the hours crawled by as I waited for my 2pm appointment. Finally I met Alan at the Sam's Club next to his work, and we drove to my appointment. I was so nervous as the tech called my name and I walked into the room. I really don't know where all this nervousness came from, maybe I thought it was too much to ask to get exactly what I wanted.. a healthy baby girl. The tech wasn't very talkative, but he slowly showed us the dhead, stomach, heart, umbilical blood flow, arms and legs. I was looking for any abnormalities, but didn't see any. Then he asked us if we wanted to know what it was. Of course I said "Yes!" I tried to see for myself, but I couldn't tell. The tech calmly said, "It's a girl." I said, "yay" and grabbed Alan's and, and we smiled at each other :)

Everything looked great with the baby. She measured exactly 19 weeks, which is what I am today. Heartbeat of 136. Weight; half a pound.

I asked the tech how certain he was that it was a girl. He said, "If it's a boy, it has the wrong parts."

As we were leaving, Alan looked so happy, proud and handsome. He wanted his little girl :)
