Ultrasound! And do you think baby will be a boy or a girl?
I wasn't sure if I was going to do a 20 week ultrasound, as I find them mostly unnecessary unless a problem is detected. I am wary of aiming ultrasound waves at a developing baby too often. But with us choosing to have our baby at home, we decided the fewer surprises the better. I am so happy we did the ultrasound in the end. It really put our worries at bay and I got to fall in love with our little one. Every morning since the ultrasound I wake up and spend some time laying in bed and talking to the baby. The ultrasound just really made everything feel so real!
That said, take a look to the right side of the blog and you will see a little green box where you can vote. Will Baby be a boy or a girl? Voting will be open until baby is born, so think long and hard about your answer. As far as old wives-tales go, I am a mix between the genders. I have very clear skin (indication of a boy), yet I am carrying quite high (indication of a girl). Our friends and family are about split in the vote, with slightly more leaning towards boy.
So tell me, what do you think?
