Nothing like forgetting to post what we're having THIS TIME. </mommy brain moment>
Like our son, we wanted to find out so that we could get an idea of who this little person is...
When we went in for our ultrasound, we were really excited and hoped that we would be able to see the bits. Before we started, the tech realized that we should have been categorized as "High risk" (like we've been saying all along... but that's a whole other rant right there) and should have had a more thorough ultrasound and that if she did one that day, it would just be pointless because we'd have a better scan later on.
We were really disappointed, so she gave us a brief scan to make sure there were the correct number and array of parts in the correct position, and she did her best to find out if we had a taco or hotdog. Our little Ninja was definitely practicing concealment, so she guessed that it was a girl, but wasn't quite sure.
The next day, I went to the second ultrasound by myself seeing as how DH couldn't get released from work in time to go with me, and the Ninja was in perfect position for revealing the bits. The tech zooms in and says "Do you see it?" and I'm like, duh... what am I looking at? She says "It's right there!" and I'm looking at the screen and thinking "WHAT is right there? Twig and giggleberries? Clam shack? Rifle and grenades? Taco stand?" I seriously had to have her tell me because I had no idea what I was looking at... which turned out to be The All-American Pink Taco Stand. :D
My husband really wanted a girl the first go round, and even though he was disappointed when he first found out we were having a son, he is super glad that we had our son first, but he really, really, really, really was hoping for a girl. When I went to see him at work, he was really excited.
I put on my sad face, and said to him "You're going to be upset..." He got this sad frown on his face and so I put the ultrasound pic that had the girly-bits circled with "GIRL!" written on it, and said "You're going to have to buy a lot of rock-salt for those shotgun shells you're going to need to chase all the boys away from your cute little daughter." He got the biggest grin on his face, picked me up, spun me around and gave me a big kiss. He's still on cloud nine. :D
