Its a......

Well, the verdict is here! The lab tech said she was 99% sure that...........................

hahaha. Can you believe it??? Adam and I were sooooo surprised! Let me give you the whole scoop....


So my appointment was at 10:30 today. I told Adam to call around 10:40 so that maybe (with God willing) we could be on the phone together when we found out the news. So I got to my appointment a little early and right as I sat down in the chair, Adam called. I was so disappointnted because I didn't think he would get to call back to hear the news. I told him they hadn't taken me back yet and I was just about to get off the phone with him when the nurse came and called my name! YAY!! I told her the situation and she said it was fine for us to stay on the phone. So dad and I went back (I know, how sweet is it that he went with me) and she got everything all ready. Adam just kept saying "what is it? what is it?" I was like, "honey, chill out. She is only just now putting the gel on my stomach!" So she started the sonogram and at first baby was just not cooperating at all! (Mom had heard from one of her patients who had two children that drinking caffine before your ultrasound will initiate the baby to move around more. You guys know how paranoid I have been about everything with this pregnancy but I was so determined to find out that I downed a Pepsi before my appointment... obviously it didn't work) I was soooo scared she wouldn't be able to see anything. Then I guess baby felt sorry for us and did her thing and let us all know what she was! The tech said "well, its a girl!". I immediately repeated the shocking news to Adam... his response? "Oh my God (laughing)! Are you serious?!" It really sounded like he was about to cry. I immidiately asked if he was disappointed (he had been wanting a boy so badly and we thought this whole time that's what it was). Of course he said he wasn't and he was so excited to finally know! Now, my feels on it? I am SOOOOOOOOO excited. You might have gathered that I am quite the girly girl - ya know, pageants, etc. So I couldn't be happier to have a little one to dress up! My friend Jessica said "I knew it had to be a girl. You are too girly not to have one. You wouldn't even know what to do with a boy." - and she is so right! haha. However, we will definately be hoping for one next go around (which is a good while away though!)
Now, let the shopping begin!!!! haha. In addition to shopping, Adam and I have seriously got to discuss names now! Before he left we made a very long list of girl and boy name possibilities, but we wanted to wait until we knew the sex before we narrowed it down. Well, last night I guess I was just so excited about finding out today that we spent forever on yahoo messenger talking about names.... however, we only talked about BOY names!! We have barely even discussed girl names! Ah, I dread making the decision! Well, Adam and I will definately be talking about it tonight so maybe I'll have some possibilities to share on my next post.
So as if it wasn't enough to find out what we're having today, I came home to find another surprise.... beautiful flowers from Adam! I have no idea how he went about ordering them, but he did! They had the sweetest card with them and of course I started crying. He truly is the most amazing man I have ever known. I will never understand how I got so lucky! We haven't gotten to talk since the initial shock of finding out so I can't wait to pick at his brain and really find out what he thinks! I do know this... that little girl will have Adam completely wrapped around her finger! Adam will also be in the hall of fame for the most protective dad. We laugh all the time about how he will probably not even let her see a boy until she's 30 and even then he will come to the door in his ranger outfit carrying a gun. The first words out of his mouth will be "Boy, did you know that I am an army ranger? Do you know what that means? I can kill you with one finger. Yeah, thats right - one single finger....." Poor girl. Maybe I can keep him under control.
Well, I'm sure I could keep going about something, but the exctiement is just too much. I have shop. Maybe I'll have some cute pictures of my girly purchases next time! Thank heaven for little girls!!!!

Such delightful news--a baby girl! She will no doubt be a stunner like her Mama with her Daddy's brave heart. I anticipate seeing lots of pics of all the little pink outfits you buy and/or receive at your baby showers. Don't get so carried away with shopping that you neglect us blog readers, 'k?
