We had the "big" ultrasound today, and even though we did NOT find out what we're having, it was still the "big" ultrasound to us.
You read that right... we did NOT find out what we're having.
Actually, I take that back. We found out that we're having a healthy baby who is measuring just right and looking about as perfect as can be. Doesn't that still qualify this as the "big" ultrasound? We think so.
See, after finding out four times what we were having, and being thrilled with the surprise of knowing on the day of the ultrasound, we thought we'd choose a different route this time. We're prepared either way with boy or girl clothes, and either way "it" will be Brody's roommate.
We just agree that since this is most likely our last chance to wait until the very end to find out at delivery if we've been blessed with another boy or another girl, we'd give it a shot. The ultrasound technician was very understanding since he didn't find out with his either, and never even looked "down there" to see what we're having. So NO ONE knows.
(Although THAT would've been a dead giveaway, don't you think?)
Actually, I do know what I'm having. Clearly, since I don't like to eat the heels of a loaf of bread, I'm having a girl. OH WAIT - because I pick up a coffee mug by the handle instead of the body, I'm having a boy. It's all clear now. (Those gender prediction quizzes are cra-zy.)
Our due date was adjusted from August 6th to August 10th (with Brody's birthday being smack dab in the middle on August 8th). Until then, I welcome your suggestions of boy AND girl names!
I can't believe we didn't find out today! (And I'm sooo glad!)
