Hands down, my very favorite day of pregnancy (not counting the BIRTH day, of course) is the Ultrasound day. I love getting that halfway preview of the little tyke and getting to see more of its insides than you do when you actually have the baby. The ultrasound makes the pregnancy seem real and, for that moment anyway, worth all of the fuss. And of course, there is the big reveal: what is the baby's gender?
I totally support those of you who choose not to find out for whatever reason, but I am not that girl. I like to start referring to the lump as "he" or "she" instead of "it", and with our previous two, we've pretty much named the kid the second we learned the gender. Although we do have names in mind, I'm going to try to keep that a surprise until the baby is born. And of course, one of the best parts about knowing the gender is the shopping! I've already got a list going.
Here's what I've got so far...
For the Bumbo, will it be
Will my diaper bag (or backpack, which actually seems more "me") be
Mod Floral Blue
Mod Floral Pink?
And for the baby carrier, is it
Although nothing any of us does now is going to change the outcome, I've set up a poll at left for you to vote your guess. I'm excited to see what you think. By the way, Chris was watching AVP on TV the other night (no, that's not my kind of movie), so I added in a couple of extra choices. Hee hee.
Our ultrasound is scheduled for a week from today, so I'll update the blog with a new look and share what we know then.
