It’s a GIRL! Adrian and I couldn’t be more excited to find out that we’re having a baby girl this time! I actually had a blood test done at 14 weeks as part of my fetal screening where they were able to determine the sex of the baby via DNA (so crazy!) and then had a full anatomy sonogram a couple weeks ago (at 18 weeks) where we were also able to visually see that we were having a girl. This pregnancy has been a complete 180 from my first pregnancy that I kinda had a hunch all along that we were having a girl, but it’s wonderful news to have my suspicions confirmed!
Adrian and I have been thinking about girl names already, but for now we’re calling her “mei mei”, which is Chinese for little sister. Dylan, in his current 2-year old exploration of sounds, likes to call her “mei bee” and I think he’s starting to understand that there’s a little person inside my belly now that he can sometimes feel the kicks when he’s sitting in my lap. I’m soaking up every minute of this pregnancy right now (as it will most likely be our last). Thank you again for following along on our journey with us so far!
