We had our 20 week u/s this week. We took Caitlyn with us. I had my concerns about this as she was adamant it had to be a girl. If it was a boy she was moving next door with Trinity. I asked her the night before if she wanted to come and see the baby on the u/s and she said yes. I told her there was a very good chance it could be a boy and would that be ok with her. Nope…she wasn’t having it! But I knew she’d enjoy the experience and didn’t want her miss out. A very good friend of mine said if she did freak out and cry that it would be a good story later and we’d all laugh about it.
This baby girl kept us wondering for 40 minutes! I thought we might have to wait and pay for a separate u/s to find out the gender. She had her legs crossed at the knees and then again at the ankles and then up by her forehead! Baby looks healthy and everything is measuring right where it should be. When the tech finally got the gender shot she froze the screen. I could tell right away. She told Caitlyn to come over that she needed her help. On the keyboard they have a “it’s a girl” key and “it’s a boy” key. She let Caitlyn press the “It’s a girl” button! Now Caitlyn thinks she got to pick that we are having a girl!
