Disappointed... a bit...

Sad to say that we didn't get to find out our baby's gender today :o( When we got to the clinic, the Dr said that we have to wait for another 3 weeks just to make sure that little bebe is big enough. By that time, we'd be 19 weeks along the way. Sigh, I should have called and confirmed before going to the clinic so we didn't have to expect too much. One of the problems I can foresee with group practice OBGYN's - not enough handshaking/passdown at times. Bummer.

It's a bit disappointing since we're really looking forward to find out if we're going to have a girl or a boy. Hubby and I have been talking about going through the next steps after finding out the gender of our baby - like what color to paint the room with, filtering the possible names, save up for guns & bats so daddy could protect the baby from boys if it's a girl... those kinda stuff (*funny how dads could become uber protective of their little girls... maybe because they know what boys are thinking - been there done that kinda thing for them... tsk tsk tsk*).

It's all good though, cuz even if we didn't have an ultrasound today, we got to hear our little bebe's heartbeat through the doppler. So surreal - it's like tiny whooshing sounds of the wind. So heart-melting... enough to make up for the disappointment of not finding out if our bebe's going to be a girl or a boy. At least we know he/she's ok inside my tummy and that's what's important more than anything else.

hindi ka naiyak nung una mo narinig heartbeat ng baby mo? teary eyed ako nung narinig ko siya for the first time kahit parang nakikinig ako sa foot steps ng kabayo hahaha.

naku ano kaya ang gender ni baby? naku lagot pag girl ... kung gaano ka-strict tatay ko sa akin nung dalaga pa ako, mas malala ata si Jason sa pagiging Jaworski niya. siya daw magiging school bus ni Janna hahaha, siya lang daw ang escort sa prom at wala ng iba.
