The stork is getting ready!!

Ok, so I thought I would do a really quick post... For those who have not heard from facebook... myspace... or a 3rd party. Mark and I went in on Monday to see the little bambino. I would have to say that I was extremely disappointed with the entire visit. They told me to drink LOTS of water (which I secretly could NOT hold... But it ended up being enough, hurray!!) Then they told me to "check in" at 3:30, with a 4 o'clock appointment. Mark works just down the street, and we just figured he would meet me there at 3:45. As soon as I walked into the office, I just had this nervous feeling. Sure enough, around 3:35, they call me back to start the ultra-sound. I was going to freak out on them!! I quickly called Mark, who was in the middle of a test drive, and was panicking that he would not make it there at all!! The woman who did the ultra-sound was very friendly. And about 10 minutes later, my husband arrived!! She put the heart beat back on, so he could hear it. The ultra-sound machine was really poor, and the image was not that great. It was still great that Mark could see the baby. BUT the baby was sitting in a position that the tech could not see what the sex was. Mark wanted to find out (even though I knew what it was), so she made me move positions twice, to try and get the baby to move. Finally, she said, "I can't confirm this, but it looks like a GIRL." Now, it's not 100% positive; if it's a boy, his little man parts may not have come down... Which I HIGHLY doubt, because the woman who did my ultra-sound with Grant knew within moments that he was going to be a boy. They didn't give me any images, so I'm very disappointed over all. Although, Mark and I are very excited to be welcoming a new baby girl into our family in November!!

Rachel - So excited to hear from you! A little girl!!! HOORAY! :) I am so stinkin' excited for you. It might be worth it to get one of those 3D ultrasounds once you are 27 or so weeks along to make up for this not so great appointment.
