We’re Having a Girl!

We're Having a Girl!

The ultrasound tech was only 85-90% sure, so there’s still a chance for a surprise. Apparently our baby is “a mover”. She wouldn’t stay still and cooperate!

    How cute you are! I love this. Congrats on the baby girl. Makes decorating a hell of a lot easier when you know! That was my goal when I had my kids at least. Now you have a new fun thing to look forward too just when pregnancy may be getting a little taxing by now.

    We have one of each. We had our girl first (now 2.5 y/o) and recently a boy, too. It’s -lots- of fun to have a girl first, I think. She’s so my little princess, mini-sidekick and partner-in-crime. You’re in for some really terrific stuff. =)

    Congratulations! I have a two-month-old baby girl. She’s the best thing that ever happened to me. And now you can start discussing names! Just keep a few boy’s names in reserve just in case. We didn’t bother discussing names until we found out the sex (we didn’t need a boy’s name as I had an amnio.)

    BTW, I love the wallpaper. Looks wonderful.

    Congrats on the 85-90% girl! My son was a womb wriggler and it hasn’t stopped after his birth. Get ready for some fun around 8 months when they run out of room and every kick ends up against a rib.

    I have two boys and was told the same, 85-90%, but the tech was right both times! I just knew they were boys too… momma’s instinct at work!

    You look great! And so does your wallpaper! :)
