We Are Having A...



Last Monday Travis and I went to find out the gender of our baby by a lady here in St. George who does ultrasounds. Travis gave me a gift certificate for my birthday so I could find out before my appointment on May 7th. However, our child is either very modest or very stubborn (I am hoping it is the first) because the baby had its little legs so tight together the whole time. At first the lady said "oh think pink" so we were thinking cool another girl. However, then she would say "Oh never mind it looks like something is between there, I definitely would not count out boy." So then we were a little confused as to what to think. We got pictures that look very girl, and also others that look very boy. So hopefullly we will find out today for sure when we go again. Many are asking what I want and honestly I don't care either way, there are advantages to both. All I really want is a good baby! Anybody who knew Hali as a newborn can understand why I say this. She is so much fun now, but I sure wondered many days if I would make it through. From the ultrasounds we have had this baby seems relatively calm so that is what I am hoping for. However, I still think girl and Trav still says boy. We will find out soon enough, what do you think?
For those who don't know what they are looking at in the pictures. You have to look closely, but in the first picture you are looking between the legs and in the second picture you can see the whole baby except for its legs. It is the cord that is wrapped around its little arm. I know at this stage the baby looks a little alien-like, but it is still just amazing to me that it is only about 5 inches long and is already a little person.
