It's a GIRL!
I am so excited to know what it is! This really makes it real and I am looking forward to getting started on the nursery, buying cute headbands on Etsy, and picking out a name. All the important stuff, of course :)
I am so thankful we were able to find out it was a girl, because baby was not very cooperative at all during my ultrasound. She was moving her arms and legs a lot, but wouldn't move into a new position. The tech could not get a shot between the legs. Greg's mom and sister had driven in from Waco that morning to come to the appointment with me - so sweet! My mom was there with us too, and of course Greg. I was so worried that we wouldn't be able to determine the gender. The tech was very sweet and patient though, and really worked with us.
First I drank a glass of water, ate a granola bar, and did some squats and twists. This helped us get a couple views that looked like a girl, but the tech still didn't feel 100% confident. Then she put this vibrating beeping device up to my tummy, but baby girl was completely un-phased. Finally the tech told me to drink a soda while I saw the doctor and we would take a look afterward. After the Dr. Pepper baby girl had still not moved into a new position, although she was quite wiggly.
However, God answered our prayer and the tech finally got a view that could confirm for sure it is a girl. YAY!
We finally got to tell our small group tonight. Here are the snacks I brought.
Below is my 19 week picture. Today I turned 20 weeks but I didn't have time to take a 20 week picture yet. So just imagine the belly below but bigger. I can't believe I am halfway there!!
