When we first found out I was pregnant, we briefly discussed deciding whether or not we wanted to find out the sex of the baby before he or she was born or wait for a surprise.
My first reaction was that I wanted it to be a surprise, but after mulling over it some more, I’ve decided that I really want to know. Besides, Kevin wanted to know, as well as the rest of our families, and if they knew, it was only going to be a matter of time before they let something slip.
Since my prenatal care is with a birthing center, they don’t provide high tech ultrasounds, so they refer you to a nearby perinatal specialist to make an appointment. All they require is that I be at least 18 weeks. I will be 18 weeks at the end of this month.
So, yesterday, I made an appointment to find out the sex of our baby. Now, the countdown begins to June 5th!
