Drew took a half day so he could go with me to the ultrasound. This was nice for him because I let him sleep in while I got up with Noah. Although, Noah decided to sleep until 7:00 AM which means we all got to sleep in a little longer than usual. Instead of being overwhelmed with excitement about our ultrasound, I had other things on my mind.
Drew was home which means I could go get groceries. Without Noah. Now this is what really excited me! Of course, I was excited about the ultrasound and finding out the gender of our baby. But no Noah at the store–there was a lot of joy in that too.
So I somehow spent over an hour getting groceries. I usually get just as much done with Noah in half the time as it took me this morning. I was leisurely strolled through each aisle taking in the sights–it was glorious. So I got back home, and of course, Noah and Daddy were not dressed yet. We threw on some clothes and rushed out the door only to arrive at a FULL waiting room.
Right when we stepped into radiology and saw all those people, I knew we would be waiting for a long time. An hour later we finally got called in for the ultrasound. Drew and I both had a feeling that the baby was going to be a girl, so it wasn’t a huge surprise when she said that it looked like a girl. What was surprising was when the ultrasound tech paused and said, “I’m 80% sure it’s a girl, so save the receipts if you buy any girl clothes.”
Noah was 100%. We have an ultrasound picture of the area right between his legs. When we first saw this image, there was no mistaking his manhood. This little one, however, did not provide such clarity. From what the tech showed me, I felt like it was 100%, but she only gave me 80%.
Hmmm, should I still go out and buy massive amounts of cute little pink things? I think YES!
