Here we are at 21 weeks….
We had an ultrasound yesterday and got some great photos of the baby. I have them on a disk, but I am not going to search through them now so that I don’t give away the gender to myself (I couldn’t tell what it was during the visit even though I didn’t close my eyes, but seeing a still shot photo between the baby’s legs might be a bit different than watching him or her squirming around on the screen at the clinic). The ultrasound tech wrote down the baby’s gender and sealed it in an envelope. It is currently in the mail headed toward my sister who will give the information to a baker who will fill our cupcakes with either blue or pink frosting. I am excited to find out what we are having along with friends and family at the gender reveal party my sister is throwing us on the 15th!
Josiah went with us to the appointment, but was highly uninterested in watching the baby on the screen. Rodney spent the last 1/3 to 1/2 of the visit in the hallway outside my room with Josiah. The ultrasound tech left the room to get the pictures and write down the gender for us, and Rodney accidently saw her stuffing the envelop with a certain color piece of paper on her way back in. So he probably knows the big secret…and I don’t. It is driving me crazy.
