20wk1d: At long last, we're having a _________ !

This past weekend we flew down to the Memphis/Tupelo area with the primary purpose of finding out the sex of the baby!  Of course seeing (and patting) B's bump in person was great too!!  We hung out with B and her family for a few days, and then yesterday went in for our scheduled visit.  I was nervous about how the doctor's office would treat us, but they were very nice.  Our ultrasound was great...mainly because we got to see the baby moving around on screen.  It was our first time seeing hands moving, mouth opening, legs kicking, etc.  Our little bean is a squirmy worm so far.  And the baby definitely did not want to show us the goods.  Those legs were very tightly closed the whole time.  For a long moment I was worried we'd flown all the way down there and would leave without finding out if it's a boy or a girl.  

Such a mixed feeling of frustration and anxiety.

Well, after what seemed like forever...the technician simply typed one word on the screen with an arrow pointing to an indefinable (to us) spot on the screen.  That word was....

So yes, it seems that soon the dogs will have a little baby sister in the house!!  Or as my husband said to someone, "GURL!!!!  It's a GIRRRRRRL!"  Hahaha!


We're SOOOOO excited!!  We haven't chosen a name yet, but we do have a laundry list of names in the running though.  OMG.  There are so many!! 

And now, we can officially start looking for stuff to register for and decorating "the nursery."   (Remember our nursery is going to be in a large closet.  This is NYC after all.)

Anyways....wheeeeeeee!!  So happy I don't know what to do with myself.  :-)
