It took about a half hour to find the gender. It was the same way with Hayleigh. The tech told me she thought I would probably have to come back but told me to go try to empty my bladder thinking maybe that would enable the baby to change position. I prayed a silent prayer that we would find out the gender…mostly for Hayleigh’s sake who just before we left said to me” Now you will KNOW I am having a sister! Have fun seeing my sister!”. I couldn’t imagine going home with no news for her. The tech gave it one last try and our sweet baby decided against modesty! I saw the three little lines before the tech said anything. Then she zoomed in a little and said “Well, kids know best! You are having another girl!” We were so excited, again mostly for Hayleigh; I would have been happy with either gender.
I had promised Hayleigh she would be the first one to know. So when we came home we sat her on the couch and told her, before anyone else. Here we are telling her and her reaction.
Telling Hayleigh the news!
This girly will have her “nursery” set up in the corner of our room. This is not ideal, but it’s the best alternative for what we have now. I am struggling with not being able to decorate an entire nursery but I already have some fun plans for her corner. I am pretty excited!
