This morning was our appointment for an ultrasound. I have been counting down the days and weeks with anticipation, but as soon as we pulled into the hospital I realized how nervous I really was. I think if Jason hadn't been there with me I would've turned around and gone home. Maybe there are some of you out there can relate to my feelings. You see, after our experience with Antalya, the meaning of an ultrasound has changed. It no longer is all about finding out the sex of the baby, but rather finding out if your baby has any birth defects.
I was terrified we would get there and they would tell me there was something horribly wrong with my baby. Could I keep my composure no matter what the news was? Well, after waiting for a half hour (which really felt like several hours) we were finally called back to the dimly lit room.
So the results? Everything looks good! There is nothing to be concerned about. We are thrilled!
Oh, and yes, we did find out the sex. It is most definitely a little girl. Jason and I were a little surprised as we both thought Antalya was going to have a big, tough, little brother to stick up for her when other kids are mean, but I guess that's not what she needs after all. We are thrilled and can't wait to meet our other little girl.
