So I had my ultrasound yesterday, and the ultrasound technician confirmed that we are having aGIRL!!!
I had an ultrasound 8 weeks ago(as part of some testing) and the tech said she was pretty sure it was a girl, but I wasn't taking any chances of her being wrong. I didn't want to tell Chloe and Cassie it was a girl, and then have it turn out to be a boy. Plus, I wanted the girls and Brian to be with me when we found out. So yesterday we saw that the little baby growing inside of me is definitely a girl. This was greeted with much enthusiasm from Chloe and Cassie. They still haven't stopped celebrating. Brian has had 8 weeks to cope with the fact that he may not being getting a boy, but he said he was praying for some male parts to grow... I guess not all prayers are answered! I, on the other hand, have been feeling a bit less anxiety at the thought of not having to figure out how to raise a boy. But then more anxiety at the thought of Brian wanting to do this again to try to get a boy next time! Just remember Brian, your brother has 4 girls, it just doesn't run in your family!
