Unexpected....gender reveal

Today I ate a Snickers...okay that's not what this post is about, but damn that candy bar was goooooddd....

Okay, seriously.

Yesterday I had an OB appointment and my IM took a red eye flight from Seattle to Dallas just to be there! (Left at 1:30am, arrived in Dallas at 5 something and then left the same afternoon!) Now that's dedication!
Anywho, this was just supposed to be one of those "boring" appointments where the Dr checks the baby's heart rate with a doppler and asks me how I'm feeling, BUT when he saw my IM he decided to be super sweet and do an ultrasound, YAY!!
It was the most awesome appointment! IM got to see how much "Snow" has grown and actually looks like a tiny human instead of a blob on the screen ☺ She attempted to record the u/s for her hubby, but she was too busy crying (happy tears!) and shaking! It was so cute.

*Side note* Snow is measuring a few days (3) ahead, so growth is on track, yay!

Then, guess what?! The Dr said "do you want to know the gender?" IM immediately was like "YES!" Lol...(so much for waiting to be surprised!)

Without further adieu, I present to you "Snow"
You see that? BOY! I knew it! I should start my own psychic services company...but only for gender predictions...I'm not that good yet.

So now my IPs have to come up with some boy name choices because IM was convinced they would have a girl and only had female names picked out lol.

The IPs and their family are over the moon and I'm just as happy for them. Now....if only I could be 100% nausea free...that would be great. Bleh.

I am someone that found your blog so many years ago when I was going through IVF and then when that failed many times adoption. I have a 6 yr old son through adoption so tells you how long I have been reading. I just wanted to write what an amazing woman you are to give such a gift to a couple that are unable to carry their child. Your husband must be incredible as well! I love reading your updates they are so fun and encouraging. All the best to all of you and congrats to the Mommy and Daddy on a boy, they are the best. (I am biased on that though)
