MM: Ultrasound Complete – Is it a boy or girl?

This is just a picture of what a baby looks like at 21 weeks.

Last week I had my FAMOUS ULTRASOUND – that usually tells what sex the baby is! The verdict is in! It’s a boy or a girl. Don’t be mad at me, but I told you all that I wasn’t going to find out until my baby shower. My husband and 2 children went to the appointment with me and were so happy to see the baby on the screen. My children just couldn’t believe what they were seeing. They asked so many questions about what was on the screen especially, “WHAT IS IT!?”

The doctor said the baby is healthy on right on track and that’s all I could ask for. She already knew I didn’t want to know, so she was very careful not to mention anything by mistake. After she finished, she asked us (My children & I) to step out so she can tell my husband. I told you all he felt he just had to know. He came out of the room SMILING! Then he said, “You know it feels so weird knowing something you don’t know!” Afterward, he was bombarded with emails, text, etc., from my friends trying to get “the scoop!” He is not telling. He wouldn’t even tell my mother. He is only telling the person doing the “baby shower” and I am fine with that.

I asked him did he get what he wanted. He said, “What I want is a healthy & beautiful child. I already have E & B, so either way I am happy. And I am excited about this baby!” So with that being said, we haven’t discussed the sex of the baby since then. We already have a name too!

Weight update:
My last appointment, I didn’t even look at the scale. I literally closed my eyes. I just didn’t want to know. This appointment I saw that I have gain 20lbs. I was 20 weeks, half way there. My goal IS to gain no more than 30 lbs this entire pregnancy so, I have some MODERATING to do. I went walking yesterday on the treadmill. It felt good.

    How fun! I don’t think my husband could keep it from me for very long, lol. It’s nice to be surprised sometimes though. We didn’t find out with my 5th until she was actually born, so that was pretty neat too.

    Glad all is well with the baby. We didn’t find out what our first was, but did with the second. If we decide to have a third, I think we’ll keep it a surprise again.
