Because my anatomy scan isn't until the end of next month, and I won't get the results of it - which includes the sex - until maybe right before I leave for several weeks (possibly not until after I get back, depending how long the report takes) I didn't want to keep the kids in suspense until the end of July, and I didn't want to wait that long myself!
So we found out this morning. We made a day of it to make it special. Went out for breakfast beforehand.
Unfortunately, I don't have any nice images of the baby's face to share since the kid was pretty uncooperative and was facing my back and would not move.
But, we did find out we're having another little girl.
This works out nicely, since my husband and I could NOT decide on a boy's name. Now we don't have to. We really, really liked the girl name we picked out.
My daughter is pretty much over the moon. She's been bouncing since we found out. Telling cashiers at shops and whatnot. I've heard "I can't believe I'm going to have a baby sister!" probably fifty times today. My son was a touch disappointed at first, but he seems to have gotten over it and now he's just happy he knows and can call the baby by her name.
Now, I don't post my kids' names on here intentionally (less Google-able, not that this is by any means an anonymous blog considering classmates and real life friends read it) but I will share that my youngest daughter's initials will be M.E.D. (or just M.D. if you leave out the middle as many people do) and that was entirely, completely, unintentional. But we do think it's hilarious, considering she's actually going to be born at my med school, while I'm in med school.
My initials are KMD and I think it's equally funny that I'm going to be Kay, M.D. soon, so I like fun initials things.
Now that that part's over with, it's just a matter of getting through the next five months of school and waiting before I get to meet her. A month of MF4 left, and then onto electives for just a few weeks, then into MF5. It's crazy how fast this is all going.
