It's a...

Come January it will be Rob, Amanda and our sweet baby girl !!!

We were hoping that last week we'd get an answer but it did not go as expected... I had had nothing but water for 4 days and I downed a Mountain Dew 30 minutes before our appointment to try and get our little bit hopping.  We get there and surprise surprise there he/she sits cross legged with the cord between their legs. The technician tried for 30 minutes to get her to flip and show us... but like a stubborn little lady she stayed put.  Needless to say we were just a wee bit bummed.

Yesterday we got to see little bit at the doctor.  Of course he couldn't get a clear look either.  He said he thought it was highly likely we'd created a boy.  But he could not say with much certainty.

Today we went back to the prenatal imaging place and about 5 minutes into it.. the technician says "I'm certain it is a girl".  She was flipped on her head showing off this time.  SO once she got a clear look, she showed us why she was saying that... and wabam... silence.  It was like crickets.

You could say we were not expecting to hear that.  Rob and his co-workers had done about every myth test in the books and they all resulted with the answer of boy.  We had a boy name picked out.  We had hardly even though of our sweet little bit being a girl.  So I guess you could say we set ourselves up for that one.  ;)

Regardless we did our first round of shopping.  We've picked out a name.  And we are adjusting to calling our sweet baby G our little girl.  It's weird... it's scary... it's exciting!

"Let her sleep... for when she wakes... she will move mountains."

P.S. I promise to return not just when I have baby news to share.  I don't want my blog to turn into a baby blog.  Not that it really had a purpose before.... but ya get my jist.

  2. Aww congratulations!!!
    We wanted a baby boy so bad with our first that when the tech said girl, I almost cried. But after awhile the idea grew on us and we wouldn't have it any other way!

  3. Awesome! I guessed girl (I think?) so this makes sense. ;) haha

  4. Congrats!! Little girls are AWESOME!! I couldn't imagine life if my daughter was a boy!

  5. I'm so excited for you! Congratulations on your baby girl!

  6. Congratulations! That is soooo exciting!

  7. That's always how it goes, right? My middle brother was supposed to be a girl (crappy ultrasound back in the 70's showed him to be a girl) and after the birth...whammo! Time for a new name. At least the baby doesn't care what color their clothes are, or nursery. And you can masculinize and feminize almost any name.

    But congrats- clearly, she's gonna be a sweet handful, and hopefully healthy as an ox. Yay!

  8. Congrats! Girls are so much fun to dress up!
