So today's the day! My daughter in Charleston is 16-1/2 weeks pregnant and she has an appointment today to have a 3D ultrasound done! With a little luck and if the kid cooperates, they should be able to tell if it's a boy or a girl! These aren't the ultrasounds that the doctor does and it's not covered by her insurance. She's going to one of these places that just does the 3D ultrasounds - she'll have one done today and another one at 24-28 weeks, she says when it's 'bigger, fatter and cuter'! I've seen those 3D ultrasounds and they're just amazing! You can very clearly see it's whole little face just like you were looking at it, count all the little fingers and toes! And hopefully tell if it's a boy or a girl. They didn't think they'd be able to schedule it this soon and she's so excited she can't stand it ... and of course, 'grandma' here has a slight interest too! And wouldn't you know it, thinking they wouldn't know the sex before Christmas, I went out and bought dozens of little gender neutral baby things, all in yellow or green or white! I have a whole big box full of t-shirts, onesies, blankets, tiny little socks with Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on the toes, a soft little Pooh Bear and rubber duckies! I wrapped each item seperately in pink and blue tissue paper and put them all in one big box. They'll have a lot of fun opening them all. But I haven't mailed it yet, so when that phone call comes, I'll still have time to run out and buy a few little pink dresses or little blue boy things before I seal it all up! Stay tuned, folks! I'll post after I get the call! Can you tell it's my very first time at being 'grandma'?
