Suprise!!


What a fun SURPRISE after my regular doctor appointment, I went down to the Bellagio with 3 other girls from my ward to a medical convention that was going on. They were asking for pregnant women who were 11-13 weeks along to come demonstrate a new ultrasound technique for physicians to practice on. They also said they would pay each participant $150 so a few pregnant girls in my ward decided to go and see what it was all about. We got there and there was two beds and two ultrasound machines. They did ultrasounds on each of us for like 15-20 minutes. We got to lie there and just watch our baby's on the screen. It was so much fun. They printed us a few pictures each. The icing on the cake was when they asked me if I wanted to find out the sex of my baby. This was totally unexpected being the I just had an ultrasound at my doctors this morning and they didn't mention anything about seeing the sex of my baby. Of course I replied "YES!" and they told me I was having a little baby GIRL!!! I was totally shocked and very excited! They said they were 98% sure so I guess I can start planning. I called Alan to give him the good news. He was very excited as well. Here are some more pictures of our baby.










So anyone want to go girl shopping with me and my new found cash?! :)

Yea!!!! Yep, I can tell that's a girl :) She looks pretty already! I am so excited to have a niece... Baby Elle... just kidding, I'll let you name her, I guess!!! But if the 2% turns out true, then I am up for another boy too. That's the cutest and skinniest little wrist and hand!

Heidi said...

Wow I had no idea machines could already tell that kind of information at 11-13 weeks!

Lindsey Lee said...

I love it...another girly for my third girly to play with...and they will be close in age!!

Barb said...

That is sooo cool you could find out already! Nothing is better than getting money from an ultrasound than having to fork it over to get one! I swear I know that girl in the pink next to you. I think she was in my USU married ward. Gosh its a small world.

Lance and Becky said...
