I will admit, I am not always very patient. The idea of waiting until after Christmas to find out our baby's gender was almost more than I could handle. Thankfully it is possible to find out the gender as early as 15 weeks, if you are willing to pay...
Last week I got a free ultrasound at 16 weeks! (My awesome cousin Amy has the hookups!) A friend suggested I eat some ice cream before to get the baby moving. I had a blizzard right before and it worked a little too well.. the little squirt would not stop wiggling long enough to tell! I was a little disappointed but thrilled for the chance to see the little one.
After all the anticipation, I was determined. On the way home I called my OB office and made an appointment for a gender check. This time I did not eat a blizzard before I went. Little babe was still pretty wiggly but thankfully the ultrasound tech got a few good pecks and told us we are having a little girl!!
I guess we have yet to break the Pugmire "curse"
Here are my favorite shots from the ultrasound:
