Pink or Blue?

{ Tuesday, January 06, 2009 }
I had an ultrasound scheduled yesterday to make sure my cervix is holding up (it is). It was fairly last minute and the sweetie didn't even take off work to be there since we weren't sure we'd get a look at the little bean. Turns out, my midwife had asked for some measurements of the baby, so I did get to see it. It was a little shocking because the last time we had a peek, we just saw a little ball. What a difference a couple weeks makes--its a real baby in there! Everything looked good so far and we got some good pictures. The bean was chilling on its back with its knees bent up like it was getting ready to do some situps. So cute!


Before she started the ultrasound, the technician asked me if I wanted to know the gender. I said I wanted to wait for the sweetie, but during the scan she stopped and said, "Why don't I just write it down and put it in an envelope for you?"

Well, what could it hurt? I figured we could always decide not to open it. Yeah, right! We tore into it the second the sweetie got home from work.

Awww a little girl! As for pink or blue? I I'd let her choose. She may end up liking green :)

It was great to see how much the bean has grown and awesome to open up the envelope!

Thanks, everyone - and don't worry Jess, with parents like Krafty and I - me the genderqueer and Krafty the toolbox carrying femme - we're very in tune with gender stereotyping.
