It’s A….

Last Wednesday morning, at just over 20 weeks, we went in for our anatomy ultrasound for our little bebe. It happened to also be my birthday. Total happenstance. I always have my appointments on Wednesday morning, but what better day to find out if we would be adding a little boy or girl to our family?!

After a look at every inch of our completely healthy little baby, the ultrasound tech announced that we were on team…

PINK!!!! Considering I was so certain in my mind that I was carrying a boy (the dreams! the cravings!)–we had talked about boy names and I started thinking about a boyish nursery–I was so surprised to hear we would be having another girl come April. I think I repeated it about 10 times before we left the room. Ha! We are, of course, so excited. Thrilled! I know girls. :)

Our family, whom we told over the holiday, seemed to ask the same two questions: First, What did Greta say? And then, what will be her name?! When we told Greta that we were having a little girl–that sister that she has been asking for, she said that she was having a baby chick. And that was that. She has since acknowledged a “baby girl that’s her sister” in my tummy, but we’re taking it slow. And as for names, we didn’t decide on “Greta” until she was born. We have a few in our back pockets but we like to see our babies before deciding on a definite name–and bonus!–that eliminates those opinions some people like to give about liking the name or not.

Team Pink! Another girl! So happy. Let the nursery planning begin!

    Congrats! We didn’t tell people our baby’s name until she was born either. Best way to do it in my opinion! ;)

    Hip, hip, hooray! One of my best friends just had a baby girl late last night – we were THRILLED! (It was a surprise, as they didn’t want to find out until he/she was ready to come into the world.) So happy for you… four!

    Congratulations! I love my brothers, but I think it would be so awesome to have a sister – yay for Greta and her “baby girl that’s her sister” (so cute!). I think you’re wise to keep naming plans to yourselves – it’s amazing how opinionated people are about names and some people just don’t know or don’t care to keep their negative opinions to themselves!

    Congratulations! Greta seems like she will be a great big sister!

    I totally thought it was going to be a boy. No idea why, just had a feeling. A wrong feeling apparently. Congratulations! :) I have a sister close in age and it’s amazing having a built-in best friend :)
