Chasing Davies: Is it a Boy or a Girl?

Is it a Boy or a Girl?

Today could quite possibly be the day.  I'm 18 weeks, 4 days along and have my monthly doctor's appointment with sonogram today.  They are going to try to determine the gender of the little being growing inside me if it is in a good position.

What will it be?

A girl or a boy?

From the moment I found out I was pregnant, all I wished for was a healthy baby.  See, I've had my ups (being 18 wks is a pretty great one), but I've also had my downs (and I'll get there someday soon, I promise).  I never realized what a miracle getting pregnant, hitting pregnancy milestones and then bringing a healthy baby into the world actually was.

So from the moment I got that positive pregnancy test, my heart jumped for joy, but my brain told me to not get my hopes up.  With every milestone, like my 14 week doctor's appointment to clear me from the 1st trimester, my guard has lifted bit by bit.

I wish I could get a sonogram once a week!  I want to know so badly how everything is going in there.  I look forward to every doctor's appointment, but also get nervous...what if they find something wrong?, I hope they find a healthy developing baby.

And if they can determine the gender, that will be icing on the cake!  I totally want to know (vs. being surprised at birth).  I'm a planner, I have to know so I can plan things... you know, like girl outfits or boy outfits. So if we don't get a view full of little baby butt, and all is going well, I will share the gender news soon.

In the meantime - what do YOU think it will be??
