The Big Reveal!!

Okay, patient blog comes my big reveal!!

I'm a little hesitant though, as my wonderful U/S tech said she couldn't give a 100% answer to the gender there is still a chance it could go the other way...knowing that I wanted to know, she kept her eyes peeled during the entire 45 minute appointment...the area was obscured by the umbilical cord a lot of the time...she was able to get a few glimpses & combined those with her technical & scientific markers & made her best educated guess. So even though she couldn't give me a 100% sure answer, she wouldn't have given me any answer if she wasn't somewhat

I'm going to have a...DAUGHTER!!! Probably, lol!!!

That brings me to another realization this whole U/S brought on for me...all this time, I had been thinking in terms of Baby & Boy or Girl...but I am going to have a Daughter! A Daughter! OMG, a DAUGHTER!!! (Or a Son, but you get my drift...) It just seems so surreal to me! STILL!!

It's an odd feeling for a dream of mine to come true...I'm not being pessimistic or negative...I mean, my life hasn't always worked out the way I wanted, but it's always worked out & I am happy with the turn out (especially now!)...but for the most part, the things I've really really desperately wanted haven't worked out...I've dealt with a lot of disappointment...but this one dream, my dream of motherhood...the one dream I want more than anything I have ever before wanted or I believe I'll ever's the dream that's coming true.

I'm having a Daughter!

P.S. I had boy's names picked out...girl's names? not so much...I'm so jealous of those of you who know what you're going to name your children!!!


  1. Congrats on the little girl!

    I always had my girl name but my boy names were always harder. Too funny to hear you have boy names but not so much the girls.

    It totally does make it so much more real to say son or daughter vs boy or girl. I didn't realize how much of a difference but yeah, its so special to be able to say that and have that.

    So glad to hear your dream is coming true!

  2. Wow congrats on the good news. I'm so excited for you!

  3. yay! congratulations! this whole process has me appreciating my mom such much more :)

  4. Congrations!! This is exciting. We can help you select names for your baby girl.

  5. Congratulations!!! I bet it does make things seem more real, to know you're having a daughter!

    Oh, and I'm just like you, I have my boy's name all picked out, but a girl's? Still no clue! LOL

  6. Wooohooo!! Congrats! I REALLY hope I have a girl, too! I have her name picked out, but nothing for a boy...

    Maybe I DO want to find out the sex???

  7. Yay!! Yay!! Yay!!
    Daughters are SO much fun!! I'm thrilled for you! I found myself in the same boat...had a boy's name all picked out, but no clue about a girl's. And at every subsequent ultrasound, I made sure to double-check that I was still having a girl!!
    Congrats, Mama!!

  8. A daughter! How wonderful :-)
    I also feel how many things didn't turn out in life, but this one big big dream, the biggest, did :-)).

  9. Wowowow!!! Great news! Good wrapped up in boy or will be a SON or DAUGHTER though. Special words.

  10. Congratulations! I was certain I was having a girl until my Level 2. I think knowing the baby's gender really helps bonding. I felt completely connected (and protective) with my little boy after I left the appointment. You'll come up with a name (or twelve) soon! Narrowing it down and choosing just one is the hardest part!

  11. Congratulations, Tiara!! A little baby girl... a daughter! Just like Paige wrote--such a special word.
    So beyond happy for you!!!

  12. Congratulations! I also had boys names and no girls names. Girls are so much fun. Yay!!!

  13. Congratulations! I love saying "my daughter."
