Lesson #27 - Gender Isn't Predictable

When the man and I found out that we were having the babe - I just wanted to go out and buy all of the cutest little outfits...right. that. minute!! The man then reminded me that not only were we unable to find out what we were having yet - though he SWORE it would be a boy (because the men in his family have all had boys) - but we'd also get a lot of stuff at the baby showers we would have. Ok, ok, ok...fine...take away my fun!! Seeing as I didn't want all green and yellow items - we would definitely be finding out what we were having as. soon. as. possible.

At our 14 week sono, the tech said that while she couldn't be certain, she was going to guess that the babe was a boy. This was music to the man's ears...seeing as he said from day one that the babe would be a boy. The tech started laughing b/c the man was so excited and then said she wanted to see if she was right - so she'd try to be our tech at 20 weeks (when they can actually tell what you're having)...but the man just knew it was a boy.


Our 20 week appointment came sooner than expected and boy were we ready (no pun intended)!! The man was in a suit that day - though I can't remember why - and I was dressed nice for work. We got to the sono place and checked in - as usual. The same tech from week 14 came out to greet us and took me back so I could put on my oh-so-flattering-very-stylish-blue-and-white-amoeba-pattered-smock. She escorted me to the exam room where the man was so excited he was about to fall out of the chair.

The exam began like normal...arms - check...legs - check...head - check...yeah, things looked as normal as they CAN look at this stage of the game. The time finaly came and she asked if we wanted to know...I'm pretty sure the man was screaming yes before she even finished her sentence. The tech was fumbling around - trying to find the gender (the babe was a modest babe...didn't want to play along)...and suddenly her eyes got big as she stuttered - looks like I was wrong.

I couldn't help but laugh. My poor hubs, who has always wanted his first to be a boy, did fall out of his chair at the thought of having a little girl. From the floor all I heard was the man yell that he wanted a second opinion. Figures he would say that!! So the tech finished up and brought in the doctor on call...and sure enough - LITTLE GIRL!!

As we're sitting in the car driving home the man started cursing his uncle - who he just remembered had a girl - and said that he wouldn't believe it until the babe came out. I think he is still in denial some days...but the babe definitely has daddy wraped around her little finger - as it should be!!

I wished my techs were wrong on every sono. Unfortunately, it never happened. All boys for me and I'm done trying to change that. I love being a mama to all boys, but one little princess around here woulda been fun. At least until she hit about age 12 when the novelty of the princess thing starts to wear off.

I never cared about the gender, but like yours, the hubs did. We ended up with one of each.

Congrats! Little girls are wonderful! All the "experts" around me thought I was having a boy with where I was carrying, etc. WRONG!

Thanks for visiting me on my SITS day the other week! Sorry the return visit took me so long!

That's too funny!

We have three boys and each was never shy about letting us know. There was definitely no doubt about what I was having.

Big Boops said...

I so remember this time. Its soooo fun! I never thought I would be lucky enough to get a girl on my first try and I DID!!! My hubs is completely in love with his little Boops. She is Daddy's favorite! But now I'm craving a sweet baby
boy to cuddle with! Someone please remind me about all the work!

That is so funny! My hubby wanted ours to be a boy too and argued with the ultra sound tech that she must be wrong. I knew I was having a girl, sometimes you just "know" and I did. And just like your hubby, our daughter can do no wrong in Daddy's eyes Lol!

So jealous of the little girl clothes (and the shoes - those teeny tiny shoes!). Boy clothes just not as fun to shop for!

That is too funny! I can just picture him on the edge of his seat the whole time, lol.

My hubby thought number 2 was definately a girl. Swore up and down but was thrilled because he could keep his storage room when it was a boy. That way the kids could share a room.

I had an ultrasound (at the same time as my amnio) and when they said girl my hubby refused to believe it until we got the amnio results back.

Hahahaha that's hilarious. My hubby will absolutely fall out of the chair if we ever have a girl. I've heard a big sigh of relief every time (three to be exact) we hear "It's a boy!" He's warming up to the idea of a girl now that she will have three older brothers to beat up all the boyfriends....

Thanks for stopping by and following my blog :)
