So here I am thinking that we are having a boy. NO DOUBT, having a boy. Well that is not the case! Chris and I went to our scheduled ultrasound at 8am this morning and we told the tech right away that we wanted to know the gender. She then told us that it was still "early" and she may not be able to see it. Well after a few minutes of looking at our MIRACLE, I just know it’s a girl, plus I saw her parts and trust me it was missing the ding-a-ling. So I just shouted out "I think it’s a girl!" To which the tech said "I think you’re right!" Chris didnt see anything but was PSYCHED because he was right the whole time, making me totally wrong. After watching our little one for a few minutes longer, it hit me like a ton of bricks...HOLY CRAP WE ARE HAVING A GIRL!!!! Do you even know what that means??? A freakin’ girl! They are SO cute, so sweet and wonderful, up until about 13 years of age..then BAM..they become something else...I should know, I was one! God help me now! When I told my sister it was a girl she said "thats great, you know girls are payback for what you did to your mom!" DANG IT! Well I might as well enjoy it until my little girl turns on me...hahaha...but I know it will get better after a few years, or at least when she goes to college, but GOD HELP ME! Oh and lets not even talk about boys and sex...okay, I am about to have a heart attack...all I know is birth control and the sex talk are coming early and often. To those of you with boys, be mindful, we have a shotgun and shovel, STAY AWAY!! Hahaha! With that..I sign off and take many MANY deep breaths!
So I had this weird dream last night about our baby! Finally! I dreamt that I was in labor at at a hospital ready to push and neither Chris nor my mom where in the room. The good part was I wasnt under any medication and was totally pain free (One can dream right). Anyway, the doctor said push and I said NO because my loved ones were missing. However, I started pushing anyway, and not 2 minutes later I gave birth to a baby boy who I named Griffin. Then I started crying...I even woke up crying...how weird is that??
Madame Zaritska, our resident clairvoyant, wants to help you prepare for the arrival of your child. Here she does her best to predict certain aspects of your labor and birth experience.
What she senses for you The day you deliver, outside will be sunny. Your baby will arrive in the evening.
After a labor lasting approximately 7 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 8 pounds, 3 ounces, and will be 18-1/2 inches long. This child will have green eyes and a little patch of brown hair.
But there is more. While I would love to visit with you more, I have other clients waiting. Why don't you visit the message boards and talk to other expectant mothers? I'm sure you will find you have much to share, and, too, to learn.
I guess we'll see if she is right about the girl part next week!!
