Guess What?

7.30.2013


I've been talking the last few weeks about going for an elective ultrasound to find out the sex of this sweet baby. I really hadn't fully made up my mind as to when I would go, but I knew that all of the places around here allowed you to come as early as 14 weeks. I had thought about going sometime this week but I hadn't called for an appointment.

This morning I decided to go ahead and call and see when they had appointments available. I was shocked when they said they had one just a few hours later. I decided to just go for it!! I was a little nervous about how it would go but they provide a guarantee that if they can't determine the sex with confidence then they will allow you to come back at a later date.

Emerson and I arrived at 12:30 and just as we were checking in, Jesse messaged me that he was on Wifi. I didn't know if the service would be that great inside the ultrasound room, but we decided to go ahead and try to FaceTime once I got in there. Up until then we thought that we would just have the tech put it in an envelope so that we could find out together when he could call.

Right when we got in the room and she got me set up, Jesse called on Facetime. The tech immediately got everything going and asked if we were ready to find out what we were having. We didn't have a great connection and Jesse couldn't see the screen that well, but he could hear as she said, "Congratulations! It's a baby girl!" It was such a blessing that he was able to "be there."

After she showed us that it was indeed a girl, she took tons of 2d and 3d pictures. She said our little girl is weighing in at about 4 ounces. It's crazy that she is that tiny and we could still see everything so clearly!  We saw her waving her arms, kicking her legs, and moving all around. It was awesome and so worth the money!

I've been saying for a while now that I was pretty sure that it was a girl. While we were traveling to Texas last month we were waiting in the airport in Las Vegas. Across from us sat a mother and her two daughters. They were blonde, fair-skinned, and probably around 10 and 13 years old. I watched them for a while and I just had this overwhelming feeling that I was looking at my life in about 10 years. It may sound crazy but I completely pictured myself sitting there with my two daughters. Since then I've been pretty adamant that it was a girl, so I wasn't really surprised when the tech said it's a girl.

We are so, so excited to be welcoming another baby girl into our family. I am just thrilled that Emerson is going to have a little sister to follow in her footsteps.
I pray that they will be the very best of friends!
