Our ultrasound and check up with my OB was scheduled for yesterday at 11am. We had to wait 20 minutes past that to be called back because the machine wasn't working correctly! I spent the 20 minutes telling Danny he could not beg the ultrasound tech to tell him the sex while simultaneously trying to not pee my pants since I needed a full bladder. Mind you I had just peed 10 minutes before my scheduled appointment time. We finally got called back and got through half of the ultrasound and the machine FROZE! Thankfully she knew the sex so we didn't have to cancel the party. We were able to finish getting the images she needed and baby looks great! The placenta has moved as well so I am off of pelvic rest. I've already resumed laundry duties.
We had 5 hours to kill between the end of our appointments and the big reveal. We grabbed lunch, delivered the sealed envelope to Danny's sister who was the keeper of the secret and headed out to do some shoe shopping for Danny and other errands. I warned him he needed to buy things he needed now since I would be spending all of his monies if the baby was a girl.
5:30 quickly arrived and our house filled with our family and closest friends. Danny's mom arrived with a not-so-happy Tucker, but once he realized we were getting balloons, his friends were there and we could eat cupcakes he turned his attitude around.
Everyone headed outside, called my brother and sister-in-law to figure out where they were since the party started at 5:30 and it was 5:34 haha. Its acceptable to be 10-15 minutes late to family dinner or a holiday, but not this. This was big stuff!
Danny's sister didn't trust Danny, so she got a little tricky with the balloons. She put pink and blue, along with a couple of white, in the box. The balloons representing the baby's sex would stay in the box while the other color (and white) flew away. We opened the box and first out were blue, leaving most guests speechless since they didn't know what was actually going on and thought we were having another boy. My sister-in-law actually started fake cheering since no one was clapping or cheering and she felt bad haha. A couple people thought since they saw pink and blue we were having twins! No way Jose!
When the pink balloons were the only ones remaining, everyone screamed and clapped! Danny's worry of showing obvious disappointment was gone as he has wanted a little girl the whole time. I had a gut feeling the whole time that it was a girl, but no real dreams to confirm my feelings like I did with Tucker, other than the blue balloon dream. Danny and I looked at each other and said "We can be done now!" Now whether or not that's true will be determined at a later date.
We are so excited to add a little girl to our family! Within an hour I was given my restrictions on how much money I'm allowed to spend per week. He was generous with his dollar amount so I think I can make it work!
Aunt Dee is relieved that its a girl because she thinks we are done. She says she can't handle another pregnancy haha!
Oh, and baby girl's name still remains Baby Goofy.
