YEP I said SHE!!!! We found out this week that we’re having a little girl. To be honest, we are completely shocked! Shocked! Every fiber in my body has screamed that we were having a boy since day one. And its not like it was wishful thinking either. Before I even got pregnant, we said that IF we could choose we’d probably choose to have a girl first. Why? Because we can agree on more girl names than boy’s. Haha. So when the technician said “It’s a girl” both of our mouths dropped to the floor. I think I asked the technician three different times if she was sure. She said that the images were very clear and she was certain that we’re having a girl. We’re both over the moon with joy but how could I have been so wrong? I guess my motherly intuition needs some fine tuning before she gets here. Or does it? I have only bought two baby things for myself prior to becoming pregnant, and guess what? They were both for a girl!
We didn’t want to have a big party to reveal the gender but rather just a few of our closest friends and family to share the news with. I wish more of my family could have attended but that’s the trouble with living in different cities/states. Regardless, it was a fun time and my husband came up with a very clever way to share the news. That’s right. I said my husband came up with it. He’s so creative! Shhh, don’t tell him I told.
*I did learn an important lesson though. It doesn’t matter if you have a small get together or a large party. The prep work and clean-up for either one takes the same amount of time. Who knew!?!
