So, the story goes a little something like this:
I've been going back and forth on finding out the sex of this baby. Since the pregnancy was a surprise, I thought maybe knowing the gender would help me adjust and prepare (mentally and physically) for the baby. I also know that I liked NOT knowing before and so I wasn't sure what to do. Brad on the other hand continued to stick to not finding out ahead of time.
The night before the ultrasound . . .
Me: So, you're pinned to the wall and you have to decide right now, for good, whether to find out the sex or not. What do you do?
Brad: I wouldn't find out.
Brad: There are so few surprises left in life and I really liked being surprised at the girls' births.
Me: Ok, then we won't find out. (I'm planning to be a submissive wife and go with him on this. Plus, I just want someone else to make the decision for me. ;)
In the ultrasound. . .
Bethany (the ultrasound tech): Do you guys want to know the gender of the baby?
Me: Nope, we want to keep it a surprise.
Bethany: Ok, I'm about to measure the legs and umbilical cord so if you don't want to know, you'd better look away.
As I looked away, I looked at Brad. What was he doing? LOOKING at the TV monitor!!! I jumped on his case about how he wanted it to be a surprise . . .
Brad: Well, now I want to know.
Me: What do you mean? You told me yesterday you didn't!
Brad: Well, now I'm interested.
Me: NOW you're interested?!
Brad: Relax, I can't tell what I'm looking at anyway.
Me: You know what that means, don't you? If you don't seen anything then it's a girl!
Bethany: Ok, you guys decide what you want to do and give me the final word. I'm not saying a thing until then!
I got on his case for a while for changing his mind and when Bethany was going to do some measuring of the feet she asked us what our final decision was. . .
Brad: We want to know.
Bethany (looking at me!): What's the final word?
Me: Oh good grief, go ahead and tell us! (look at what a flexible person I'm becoming!)
Bethany: IT'S A BOY!!!
So there you have it. We would never pass as ultrasound technicians because even when Bethany showed us how she could tell it was a boy. . . we were pretty much taking her word for it. But she said, 100% for sure a BOY!
Crazy. We're adjusting to the idea of our family changing drastically and Brad's considering what it means to raise a boy into a man. :) Here we go. . .
