Pink!


Notice the pink ribbon...

that's right, we found out we are having a little girl!!

Today was the ultrasound with our families and it was such a great experience.  Our little one was very active and has grown so much!! 

Pretty early in the appointment the u/s tech winked at me and asked quietly if I wanted to know what we are having.  I said yes and she said- it's a girl!  I asked how she knew and she pointed out the three lines that distinguish a girl.  I think everyone in the room was surprised- most of us thought it was going to be a boy.

I didn't think we would find out the gender today, I knew it was a possibility but I didn't have my hopes up because it's still early.  The u/s tech seemed very sure- I hope she is right and we don't end up with a surprise little boy :)

It hasn't quite set in for me yet, I feel like I'm dreaming...a really great dream that I don't want to wake up from! 

Here are a few pictures of our sweet little girl, we already have a name picked but we aren't ready to share it just yet.  Enjoy!

  4. How fantastic! I can't believe you already know! I hope she is right but I guess if you're unsure, it's possible she was wrong. Better prepare a boy's name just incase.

  7. Bridget and Steve,
    Congratulations but we do have a slight problem. I have been knitting a BLUE baby blanket for the past 6 weeks not a PINK baby blanket.....oh well, if only all of your worries were this small! We are thrilled for the new addition to your family. Have to sign off and get to the yarn store for pink, pink, and more pink!

  15. So I was going to pop over and guess that we are both having boys since we are both starving all the time, but I'm wrong! Congratulations!! That's so exciting. I think I'm having a boy but would secretly love to be proven wrong.

  23. CONGRATS!!! I found out London was a boy at 14w2d at a routine u/s just like yours. I am DYING this time to find out early too. I've convinced the hubs to do a 3d u/s at 16 weeks because I am so impatient hahaha!
    So happy for you!!
