A very common question from everyone, once you are pregnant, is whether or not you are going to find out the sex of your baby. I always knew I would. I am a straight type A person who needs to plan, plan, and plan. I could not keep sane decorating a nursery and buying clothes for a child I did not know the gender of. I have had friends that have not found out the gender and I applaud them. I get how cool it would be to find out that day, I do get it. However, they are stronger than I am.
Yesterday Rebecca joined the Husband and I for the anatomy scan and to find out if we were right on our assumption that the human I am growing is indeed a girl. I can finally say that yes, we are having a girl! I now feel like we can say, game on! Let the shopping begin!
Our appointment went really well. She is measuring exactly as she should be and weighs 10 oz. We have a perinatologist that we meet with, whom I adore, and he has eased so much anxiety with this pregnancy. He spent a lot of time explaining everything as he measured her and did extensive looks at her heart as we are keeping a specific eye out for that due to my family’s heart issues. We will do another anatomy in eight weeks as there is concern that the heart medication that I take will slow her growth.
We happily left with a string of ultrasound pictures. Rebecca thought it was very nice of them to give us all those pictures for free. Yes, free, that is what happened there.
