So.. we weren't really able to find out the gender today as planned. I painted this box yesterday in anticipation of buying our pink and purple, or light and dark blue balloons to release out of the box today for our "reveal" video and pictures. But the ultrasound nurse said Chip was in a weird position, so she wasn't able to get a good enough view to determine anything for sure.
When we told our doctor that we weren't able to find out the gender, she talked to the sonogram nurse to see if she was busy/ when her next appointment was to see if we could try it again. They gave me a cup of cold water to drink to see if Chip would squirm around in just the right way. No real luck though. The nurse asked, "Do you want me to tell you which gender I'm leaning towards?" I immediately said, "YES!" So she told us. But again, nothing definite for me to go out buying cute baby outfits yet. Michael says that's good though because it will save us some money until then.
Here are the best two sonograms we got today (from the first ultrasound), although for some reason they looked less detailed than the ones before. Chip was moving his or her arms around a lot today, which was especially great for me to see since I had taken the cough medicine three nights over the weekend. I don't like that it looks like Chip has a huge dent in the head, but it didn't look like that in the other "squishy-looking" sonogram pictures. Maybe Chip was making cranky faces because of all the poking we were doing, trying to get him or her to move into a different position.
