Sooner or later? I choose sooner!

The weekend is upon us and I, for one, am really excited because I am ready for the weekend to be here… I bet if there was a poll of everyone’s favorite day, Friday and Saturday would win by a landslide… Monday’s wouldn’t stand a chance! Kind of like what’s your favorite, oatmeal cookie or chocolate chip?! No brainer…

I am in a really good mood today…Why am I in such a good mood you wonder? One of the biggest reasons is because I got to thinking to myself! I thought “self, how in the world are we going to wait until December to find out what sex the baby will be?” Then I thought some more, as I tend to over-think a lot of things… and I wondered “how did we come up with the date of December anyway?” I am sure whenever Laura reads this she will look at me and say “I don’t know!” Anyway, I read on babycenter.com that you can actually find out the sex of your unborn child as early as 15 weeks! Yep, 15 weeks… but most likely it will be 18-20 weeks when we will find out.

The article on the website said:

"Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")"

Yes, there is a possibility it may be hidden, but I would like the chance to see!!! Wouldn't you?! Why in the world are we waiting so long to find out…? I am sure a lot of you are parents out there, and thus have had a child before! Why didn’t you mention to me “you don’t have to wait that long?” Mean people. Mean, mean, mean. Bottom line, October will be one fun and exciting month!

So, to update you on what’s upcoming…

Well, next week, August 13th @ 2pm, Laura and I have our second doctor’s visit when we will get the first picture of “Baby Skates!” Then not much to do, but wait…we will have to wait until the middle of October when we will finally find out is “Baby Skates” a girl or a boy?

Excitement abounds… stay tuned!

Well - waiting till December would make for a great Christmas surprise wouldn't it? :) You are becoming quite the resourceful Daddy - figuring this out so quickly. Were we sitting back smiling.......wondering just how long it would take for you to do the math and come to this conclusion on your own? Never! :) A Wisconsin friend (who is afraid to tell you my name)

Not to burst your bubble, but usually doctors won't do the ultrasound until around 20 weeks. I got mine at 19, but that was because I begged! ha! Your insurance will probably only pay for one or two ultrasounds. One you may get at your next visit (unless you already got that one) and then the next they wait until 20 weeks because they have to check all the baby's parts (brain, heart, kidneys, etc.) and 20 weeks is when those "parts" can be seen the best. Unless you convice your doctor otherwise...you may have to wait! :) BUT....maybe your doctor can be convinced!! You are cracking me up with your blogs though! I am loving them!
