We had a fun surprise yesterday and found out the gender earlier than expected. I had an appointment scheduled for Wednesday morning and Ryan didn't come with me since it was just a regular check-up and we didn't think he would need to be there. When I was talking to my doctor she asked if we knew what the gender was yet. I told her no but that we were planning on finding out. She asked if I wanted to find out. Again, I said we were planning on knowing the gender but our ultrasound wasn't scheduled for three more weeks. She then said, "No, do you want to find out today?" I think I looked at her a little confused and said something along the lines of, YES! The only problem was that Ryan wasn't there. In the end I couldn't turn down an ultrasound since we haven't had a peak since I was 8 1/2 weeks along. We decided that she would see if she could see anything and if so, she'd make me close my eyes and would print off a few pictures for us. I got to see the sweet little face and then I shut me eyes as she said she was able to tell the gender. Next thing I know she is handing me a sealed envelope that included two pictures with notes written on them and gave me a hug.
As soon as I left I called Ryan and told him I was picking him up for lunch and that I had a a fun surprise for him. Luckily Ryan and I work together because there was no way I could have waited until the end of the day. We drove to a nearby restaurant and opened up the envelope in the parking lot. Sure enough, the pictures confirmed that it was a boy!
We couldn't stop smiling and walked right away to a Baby Gap that was nearby. We picked up our first blue outfit and took a picture so we could send a text to all our family and friends to spread the exciting news.
Now, let the shopping and planning begin :)
