Why is pink for girls and blue for boys…
17 Weeks 0 Days
There were some intense and amazing moments on Saturday that I am only now beginning to wrap my head around.
Seeing M was fantastic. She is absolutely radiant (and should start taking some bump pictures as she is developing what I can only call a gorgeous bump). Ye know the pregnant woman who is just belly and no flubber anywhere else – well that is M – she’s one of those gorgeous knocked up chicks.
When the ultra sound tech first switched to 3d, I could not see or understand anything. And I felt really awkward for a few minutes, the tech kept saying “oh she’s putting her hand in front of her face” (this is baby A: aka Giraffe the one that Mr. and I always said was a girl) and I kept thinking I can’t see, I am her mom and I can’t see, why can’t I see.
And then suddenly – I saw:
See her hand is on top of her head in a very Mr. Duck kinda way. In the 4d image we kept seeing her little hand waving at us, and waving over her head. It was beyond adorable.
Then the tech went to examine baby B.
Baby B was nestled into his placenta and did not want to show either his face or his bits. We could actually see his little hands kept going between his legs in an attempt to mask anything. The tech told us that she would not tell us the gender unless she was sure, so said nothing for the first 20 minutes.
We went back and forth between Baby A and Baby B, until baby B finally rolled over and showed us his little face (and his bits – she did this thing with the colour option to show us that yes indeed he is a he).
Here is baby B (aka Monkey):
What is funny is that we decided months ago that Giraffe ( who is female) would represent baby A – even though I thought there were 2 boys – because Baby A had a slightly large sac and that meant that baby B would be Monkey (a boy).
Monkey and Giraffe are, well they are the baby representatives in our house, it’s hard to communicate with you children when they are growing in another uterus so we have Monkey and Giraffe who we do talk to (no we are not insane) and are our little tiny spirit baby representatives. If you have never heard of Spirit babies, go check it out, it has changed my perspective of infertility.
