...but it isn't me! We just had our 20-week ultrasound a few days ago. We told the doctor before the exam that we did not want to know the gender. We were surprised when pregnant with our daughter Nina, and we really loved it that way. I found that it gave me that extra motivation to push when I kept falling asleep between contractions! And my husband got to be the one to tell me "It's a girl!," which was so meaningful to me.
Anyway, I digress. The ultrasound went well and the doctor says everything looks healthy. I am so glad for that. The baby was wiggling around like crazy and she could not get very clear photos. He/she kept turning towards the camera, so a profile shot was especially difficult. This was the best we could do:
At the end of the visit, I said to the doctor "Please don't tell us, but do you know the gender?" She smiled at me and said "I KNOW!" Needless to say, it has been all I can do not to race to the phone to call her and say "I changed my mind! Please tell me!" But I keep remembering how amazing that moment in the delivery room was, and I refrain.
Either way, I thank God for a healthy ultrasound and an active little baby! Only four more months to go...seems like an eternity.
