We went to our last OB appointment at 13 and a half weeks pregnant. I was hoping to find out gender, but I figured it was probably too early to tell. Our OB surprised us with a 95% sure statement that our baby is a girl!
I was so surprised! My husband had me convinced we would never have any girls. He comes from a family of men and he gave me all kinds of weird medical and statistical reasons why it couldn’t be a girl. I never understood what he was talking about, but my husband is so good at bull! He could convince you of anything. He thinks it’s funny to see what kind of crazy things he can convince me are true. I guess it’s partially a statement about myself as well…”Hey Amber! Gullible is written on the ceiling!” “What? Where? I don’t see it!”
Ha! In your face honey! My family is thrilled. They’re mostly just glad the husband is wrong about never having girls, and my mother-in-law is so in need of a little girl to spoil. After raising five rowdy boys she deserves the grandma reward!
I’m already making little girl plans. The flowered hair bands that are so in style, the cute pink outfits, the general sweetness a little girl brings to the home, not to mention the latest big study in the news about how people with sisters are generally happier.

Anyways… I went off into a great fun day dream, but if our little girl grows a hot dog before the next doctor’s visit we’ll still be happy! I’m sure I can write an equally mushy blog post about sweet little boys.
