Well, I had my ultrasound about a month ago and am just now getting around to updating my sparkpage. The doctor said he is 80% sure it's a girl this time. Unfortunately the baby didn't cooperate very well and the umbilical cord went right between the legs making it almost impossible to tell. This is what happened on my first one with Jacob too. The doctor also told me 80% sure it was a girl on his first ultrasound. We had 2 more chances with Jacob to get it right since the ultrasound machine wasn't working right. However, this was our only shot with this one. So, we have decided to proceed as if it really is a girl this time, but have a boy's name picked out also just in case.
I really will be happy either way, but the problem is that if I get my hopes up that it's a girl and get all excited buying cute little girl clothes, then I'm worried I will be disappointed if I have a boy. I have already started buying a few girl clothes, but I'm trying not to go all out just in case. I also got a bunch of clothes from a cousin who is done having kids. So, I should be all set either way. If I have a boy, I have lots of clothes that should work. I'll just have to be prepared either way.
I'm crossing my fingers for a girl just the same.
