Well, all along I suspected that I would be having a girl. Actually even before I was married, I had a dream on my mission while in KL that I would have a daughter first. Now I have a lot of weird dreams and this one was no exception but, something about it really stuck with me, so I just assumed that is what it would be. Then I had really bad morning sickness, then I craved/crave everything sweet or at least NOT protein....so for me it all added up to GIRL! So I have been talking incessantly about girl names for several months and Paul liked to check me with some boy names since I didn't know that it would be a girl.
But it turns out I was right, I have looked at lots of ultrasounds before and have some general anatomy knowledge and so I could follow where we were on the ultrasound pretty well, and I knew before the tech even said it that indeed it is really a girl. Paul had to agree that I was right all along. We are both happy with this although, girl names are really hard (there's so many!)
Since we have been pregnant we sing a hymn to the baby every night and that night Paul insisted we sing "as sisters in zion" to prepare our future "sister". In any case we are both very excited and ....really taking name suggestions!
