It's A.......BABY!

On November 1st, 2008 Richard and I took an early gender test called "Intelligender". A friend of mine had taken that test, or one similar to and and it predicted the gender of her baby accurately. The website also said that it had an accuracy rate of about 82%. So I bit the bullet and bought the test. If the test predicted you were having a girl it would turn an ornangey-yellow color. If a boy it would come out a dark forest green. Here was the result of our test.

Today we went to the doctors office and she asked us. Do you know what you are having? I said, "Well we took an early gender test that I bought online and it said boy." She asked, "What was the accuracy rate?" I said, "82%" She then proceeded to say, "Well, that test was quite inaccurate... Your having a GIRL!" We were in shock! Rick was speechless, my mom was grinning from ear to ear and I was questioning the Dr./technician... "Are you sure?... Really?... NO WAY!" All this was going on while she did a freeze frame on our little girl and pointed out the obvious.

We couldn't believe it! We were so convinced that we were having a boy. But what a wonderful and delightful surprise this was! I'm glad it happended this way though. It made it that much more exciting... to be surprised by an unexpected outcome.

Mom (abuela, grandmother in spanish) and I celebrated with a breakfast from Ihop and then a shopping trip to buy a cute girly outfit! (We couldn't help ourselves! LOL!

We also were sent home with some updated unique pics of our little girl. We hope to have those posted up here by tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Yay!!!! We are having a little Girl!!!!! :-)

Boy or Girl? TELL ME ALREADY!!!

So it's been a while since our last post. Sorry about that. Richard and I were supposed to go to the doctor to find out the sex of our baby on December 12th, 2008. Unfortunately, the sonogram technician was having a bad day and took it out on us. She rushed through the appointment and complained that we weren't on her list of patients to see (as if she was swamped for the day, which was not true because I saw her meandering the office aimlessly...). She couldn't finish taking measurements of the baby because he/she wouldn't turn the right way. So the technician decided... "We will have to reschedule you to come in again, besides you're only 19 weeks, it's too early for this sonogram." This was completely untrue seeing as my doctor had scheduled me for that week and I had read that between 19-22 weeks is the time for this Level 2 Sonogram.

We were dismissed... Me, Rick, My Mom, Dad and Sister were dismissed from the room. How disappointing it was. I had endured a looooonnngggg wait in the waiting room with no food, a full bladder (they recommend you come with a full bladder), and and annoying episode of the Rachel Ray Show. After which I had to wait another 30 minutes to see my doctor for him to tell me that there was nothing to worry about that we would reschedule my sonogram. The good news was that we would no longer need to see that doctor/technician. They had hired someone new. If I never saw that lady again... it would be too soon! (Those feelings toward her go way back. Rick and I had a bad experience with her for our first sonogram. LOL!)

So here I am. The night before the day I should find out the sex of my baby, and I am excited! I have recently begun to feel the baby move/kick so this little human being is becoming more and more real. He or she is coming, and will be here around May 6th, 2009!!!! Wow... Our lives are going to change! Life as we know it will be different! I can't explain the excitement, fear, joy and wonder I feel as this pregnancy progresses. I can't wait for the day we will hold our baby in our arms but at the same time wonder.... "What will it be like? How will I feel?". I guess I'll find out on that day. And oh what a day it will be! :-)

I had no real new news to tell in this post. I just wanted to update everyone on our journey so far and to lookout for our next post revealing the sex of our baby... hopefully!

Thanks for reading!
