It's A....

GIRL!!!!   YES Ladies and Gentlemen!!! We just had our Sonogram today and the tech confirmed this is our baby girl!!!

There we were in the room, waiting for that moment when she touches the sonogram probe to my belly. I was quite nervous. What if after all this confidence I was wrong? Another boy would be fine, but still. Was I wrong?

Then she touches my belly and says "there, can you tell what it is?"

Being my 3rd pregnancy, I guess she assumed I would be able to tell. I looked carefully, and could not bring myself to say it, "Is.... Is that a girl?!"  (I had never seen a girl's sonogram before!)

"YES!" She confirmed!!!

"Are you SURE?"  I asked her, not quite believing what I was seeing, "I mean, sonograms CAN BE wrong."

"Honey," she said, "I have done over 19,000 sonograms and I have NEVER been wrong." She states.

She's NEVER BEEN WRONG?!?! I repeated in my head.  Though I had been declaring it for the past 4 months, I could not believe it. We are going to have a little girl!!!!

Yes, folks, Tomorrow is Sonogram Day!!!

All this time, I have felt like this precious baby inside me is a girl. Tomorrow, we will find out for sure. I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!

The other day at work, my boss was giving me statistics on gender probability in families. He was well-meaning, but still! He said he wanted to remind me that %75 of families who have two boys first end up having a third boy  as well. I told him, yep, that means that %25 have a girl!

Am I being stubborn? Or faithful? I know he just doesn't want me to be disappointed, and I appreciate that. But like I said when I found out I was expecting this baby, I will NOT be disappointed either way. How could I?! God is blessing me with another child!!!
