20 Weeks: The Big Ultrasound

It’s a girl!

I had the big ultrasound today, and my intuition was right! There’s a little girl in there! I’m so excited, and it seems so much more real now–a daughter. I wonder if she’ll be a blondie, like me.

Of course, I would have been just as happy with a boy (and I would have gotten used to the soccer and baseball and basketball games). As I’ve been telling people all along when they ask, I just want the baby to be a boy or a girl, not both, not neither, and not one that wants to be the other.

I’m the oldest in my family, so having a girl first makes sense to me. Having a boy first does have it’s own advantages, though. If he has a younger sister, he can beat up any boyfriends and be that cool protective older brother. He can watch football with his dad. (But wait, can’t boys do that stuff even if they aren’t first born? hmmm…) Well, there’s no use thinking about that now! The first born is a girl. Maybe she can watch football with her dad.

Everything else is just peachy with the pregnancy so far. But I do miss wine. And sushi.

    Having a girl first has another advantage -
