Had my 20-week ultrasound today, having a little girl! My 9-year old son was wanting a boy, but everyone else we knew was shooting for a girl:) Now time to find a name...
Awwe! Congratulations! Having a girl will change your life! :)
Girl advice, just to start you out:
I learned very fast there are umpteen million shades and variations of pink. You will soon see you can't buy a pink dress on one shopping trip and some pink accessories (hair bows, headbands, socks, shoes) that match one another on a separate shopping excursion.
This is all prudent on you deciding to use pink. Considering I had all boys before hand, I may have went a tad overboard with pink.
So exciting, enjoy getting ready for her!
Well I don't actually LIKE pink, so my little girl will be in a lot of purples and yellows and cheerful greens and such:)
Of course, I'm seeing in my online shopping that avoiding pinks will be VERY hard....
A little pink shouldn't be to bad as long as it's broken up with other colors. I was hoping for a girl when I was pregnant, but everyone said boy. When I had my ultrasound they said boy and pointed it out with an arrow. I give the techs a lot of credit cause I sure can't read those things. I didn't see anything near the arrow so I thought they may be wrong. Nope I was the wrong one...I had a baby boy at just 27 weeks.
Congrats on your upcoming arrival and hope everything goes smooth.
Thank you! I hope for a smooth "trip," also. My son was a relatively easy, 45-minute delivery after a pregnancy so uneventful I didn't find out about it until 6 months along! So far, I've gotten all the symptoms that I missed with the first pregnancy but everything has been great with the baby:)
My tech was good too:) She pointed out three little dots to me, and I immediately said it must be a boy. She said nope, that's a girl - three little dots were her female parts, not little boy's three parts:) With my son I didn't see an ultrasound until almost 8 months, so he was already VERY fully developed and it was obvious to everyone, expert or otherwise, that he was a he.
