This morning we went to the hospital to get the second and last ultrasound. I'm now 20 weeks pregnant, and the ultrasound was going to show if something was wrong, and hopefully the sex of the baby!
The nurse had hardly got the scanner in hand before I told her I wanted to know the sex if she was able to see it. So she started measuring everything, showing us the little heartbeat, both arms, both legs, the kidneys, the stomach, the brain etc. all while I was thinking "can she see what it is? does she all ready know? why isn't she telling me?" I guess she was just teasing, because in the end she told us it was a boy, so in 20 short weeks we will be parents to a healthy baby boy:) Hopefully this is going to make it easier to come up with names, but if you have any suggestions I'm all ears:)
My mum asked what we had been hoping for, and honestly we were just hoping for a healthy baby, but knowing the sex ahead of time is just so much more practical. So even though it's not a 100% sure, we are now planning for a boy. Everything just seems so more real now.
My brother was hoping for a boy, so he would grow up a be a soccer player, and hopefully play for his favourite local team, but if he weren't any good he could stay with our favorite team:)
So now we can start buying blue things, I'm so excited!
