Last week I went to my regularly scheduled appointment. My husband hasn’t went this whole pregnancy, which really wasn’t a big deal. He told me I was a pro. Although, he did go to this appointment because he thought the doctor was going to tell me what is the sex of the baby. I laughed because I told him that this is not the appointment for that, the next one is. He still went because with our 2nd child we found out early by accident in addition to having the regular 20 week ultrasound appointment. So, he was hoping that would happen again. Well, it didn’t. I laughed at him because he just knew he was going to find out. He now has to come back in a few weeks to my next appointment to see if his 3rd child will be a boy or girl.

I have decided to find out at my baby shower. We actually planned to do a “Reveal Shower” and my husband will reveal the sex to everyone then (even me). I think that’s kind of different. I know people like to buy gender specific gifts, but I am ok with yellow and green. I will just feel blessed to get anything thing for my “Bonus Baby!”
Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He’s busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you’ll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they’re still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he’s born. If you’re having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you’re having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.
So let me ask you, did it really matter what you had? A boy or a girl? I knew I have always wanted one of each and I am glad God bless me with that. Now that I am getting a BONUS, I will honestly feel fine with either one. Don’t tell anyone, but I believe I already know what the baby is. I did the chinese calendar.
