22 Weeks

Not knowing the gender of this little one had been torturing me lately. Since the ultrasound, I've taken numerous gender prediction quizzes online, which have not provided any clear insight. Obviously.


During my Mom's birthday party, my brother came out of the kitchen asking if the picture on the fridge (a 14 week ultrasound photo featuring a full body shot)
was of baby #2. "It's a boy," he confidently stated. "It has a...schmekel." My mom & sisters also examined the pic. "Yep," they all agreed, "it looks like we know what you're having!"

And for the rest of the weekend, I was convinced (or at least 90% certain) that this babe on the way was, indeed, MALE. But before I started buying boy clothes, I needed one more bit of confirmation.

So, I googled "14 week ultrasound boy" to do a little photo analysis of my own...

After skimming dozens of grainy, black & white images, I settled on one that looked the most like our photo. Turns out, it was an ultrasound photo of a GIRL. Apparently, the tailbone can often be confused with another piece of "anatomy" at that stage of the pregnancy. Hmmm.

So, I am back in the boat of unknowing. And I can honestly say that I really do like it here. At least we know one thing for sure...this baby is either a BOY or a GIRL.

**I do want to add that Wayde's opinion was never swayed throughout this whole ordeal (for lack of a better word). He once told me early in our marriage that he had a feeling that we were going to end up with all girls. If you know my husband, you know that he doesn't go throwing around premonitions all willy-nilly. So, we'll see if those sentiments are on track come this July...

  2. Just reading through after seeing you comment on my IG and that you had a Ruby, too. Oddly enough, my husband and I have talked about the name Sterling for this baby if it's a boy! And we're hoping to be surprised, too! And I just had an ultrasound at 16 weeks and the midwife kind of told me she thought she could tell what it was so I assumed boy and now I'm kind of doing my best not to think about it b/c she told me the same thing about the tailbone possibility. Oh gosh, anyway, I feel like we may have tons in common. Congratulations on your new baby boy! One of each is so fun. ;)
