Pink or Blue

One thing I have hated ever since we found out I am pregnant, is not knowing whether it's a boy or a girl. I have hated calling our child "it" or "the baby". We picked a girl name out a long time ago, long before we conceived (we road trip a lot so started figuring out baby names on one of our long drives down from the bay area).

We have been discussing boy names but couldn't agree on anything. We agreed to stop talking about it until we found out what the sex was.

Yesterday I found out that our Dr's office will do an ultrasound starting at 15wks to let you know the gender (if you don't want to wait until the scheduled 20wk one). We just have to pay $40, since the insurance company won't cover it before 20wks.

So OF COURSE I was going to pay....patience has never been my strong point :-)

So they squeezed us in this morning. I laid on the table, the tech squeezed the goo on my growing belly and we got another glimpse of our little one. 10 little fingers and 10 little toes, the baby turned it's head and gave is a smile. Then the tech headed down towards the rump for the money shot. With it's legs spread for us to see, there it............wasn't!!! A little Girl!!!! I burst out "baby Imogen". I looked at Daniel "Are you ready for tea parties?" he smiled wide "absolutely!!!". The tech took a quick pic of our little girls's girly parts and we were done. 5 mins after walking in, we were walking out, knowing who was in my belly, our little girl Imogen Aurora.

We're even more excited now, my cheeks are starting to hurt from all the smiling (just like the day we got engaged). Now we just have to wait another 24wks to meet her, darn that patience!!!


  1. That is wonderful news, Regina and Daniel. Remember you can't pay extra to get her to arrive sooner than when she is ready! God bless little Imogene!

  2. I love the name!!! You obviously could not come up with boy names because there was no need!

  3. I'm so happy for you, darling! Glad you're writing a blog, too!
