How We Found Out...

Last Monday was just like any other day.


Last Monday was one of the most exciting days we have had in a very long time!

It was the day that we would find out if our little baby was a he or a she!

I could not sleep at all Sunday night.  Normally this wouldn't be a problem, however, I had to be at work at 5 AM and this little baby of mine loves to get at least 9 hours of sleep a night :)

So I managed to work for 5 hours before our appointment and then rushed home so we could go find out.

Let's talk about this whole - "Your bladder must be full for this ultrasound" BS!

I am:
1.  Pregnant
2. Have the smallest bladder in the world anyways
3. Thirstier than a hippo
4. Not good at holding it

So sitting in the waiting room was pure torture.  My poor husband had to keep telling me that it was okay and I could make it.  I had no idea how I was going to make it and not pee all over myself while getting the ultrasound done.

After sitting in the waiting room for what seemed like 17 days, we finally got taken back.

I lay down and the tech starts and says, "Oh my, you are way too full."  No shit Sherlock!  "Please go to the restroom and empty your bladder."

Thank the good Lord up above!  I could concentrate on the important matters at hand.

So we start taking a bunch of medical pictures.  She took close to 80 pictures and videos of our little bug before we got to the "fun stuff", otherwise known as is it a boy or a girl.

So we finish the medical portion and are moving on.  Out of nowhere, like seriously no where - neither one of us was expecting her to be so forward about it - she says "BOY PARTS!"

Oh my gosh!  My heart jumped!  I grabbed Ryan's hand and just stared at his face.  He couldn't look away from the monitor.  We honestly did not care either way and while we were there we both thought that Baby H was a girl after all, but nope!  Baby H is a boy!  It's a boy!  Ryan got a boy!

I won't say that Ryan cried, but I could tell that he was super overwhelmed with happiness and joy.  I just laid there staring at my husband and our little boy on the monitor screen.  I love Ryan more and more everyday, but I can't imagine how much I will love him once he is holding our little boy.

We are so excited that we know can call Baby H by his name and it just feels all that much more real now.

  1. I don't understand why they ask women to have full bladders! I'm sure there's a reason, I just don't get it when they look again after it's empty.

  2. Found your blog by googling bumpdates! We found out last week that we're having a boy even though we totally thought it was a girl! How exciting! Can't wait to read more!

  3. Congratulations!
    A little boy, whooooo!
    I can't imagine your excitement.

  4. I thank the good lord up above I havent been asked to have a full bladder yet and even though im only 12 weeks ive had quite a couple ultrasounds. I had to have one for non-pregnancy related issues in the past and I literally almost peed all over the ultrasound tech cause she DID NOT want me to empty my bladder. It's miserable LOL.

    Found you through the let's be friends blog hop! Congrats on your little boy =)
