Mommy Saw the Doctor and the Doctor Said...

We started our busy day with a visit to the baby doctor. I was so nervous!! I don't know why, I should have been really excited but I was very anxious. Our little baby wasn't cooperating too well, it didn't want to wake up and move around so he wasn't able to get all the angles he was hoping for. But, we got enough for him to say he's about 95% sure that...
There's a small margin for error there I guess. We'll find out for sure in another month when we go in for our detailed ultrasound to check all the organs and whatnot. But for now we'll believe what he says.

I won't lie, at first I was kind of upset about it. "Upset" isn't the right word but I can't think of a better one right now. We obviously were hoping for a boy and so was the rest of the world. Literally. Even an overwhelming amount of my students wanted us to have a boy. I guess I felt like we'd shot down everyone's hopes. I know that's stupid. I guess I could say I was more shocked, even though Cory and I both kind of had a feeling it would be a girl. Anyway, it only took a couple hours for me to accept it. I decided going out to buy something would help. At first it didn't. I'm NOT a girlie-girl so pink and purple and frilly bows, hearts, and flowers don't mix well with me. But thanks to the awesome people at Carter's, there's a way around all that. It was fun buying stuff for our baby even though I was only allowed to buy "1 thing" ( I made it out with 3). Now we get to start the difficult task of finding a name. So, that's the verdict for now. We're having a little girl!!

Congrats. :) Little girls really are very nice in many ways. Even though they can be very whiny at times, they can also melt your heart with sweetness at other times.

Megan, first of all CONGRATS! Secondly, I know that "upset" feeling you are talking about. When we found out that we were having a boy, I cried. Jordan asked me why I was so upset that we were having a boy? I felt sooo guilty. It wasn't that, I just felt bad for some reason. I finally figured out why. Before I knew what I was having, I kinda imagined a boy AND girl. When I found out what we were having, I almost felt a sense of loss since the image of our girl went away. Sounds weird, I know. But I really think that's why I was sad. That AND hormones. he he. Anyway, I am super excited for you. :) I think having a girl will be fun. Remember the relationship that you and your Mom have (that post was sweet in talking about your Mom) and imagine how wonderful it will be to be close to your little girl & have another close relationship like that with your Mom. :) Please keep us posted on more happenings. :)
