Whenever you are considering reading a post on ActiveRain, there is some “preview” text which appears there. I think it’s about 50 words or so. At any rate, if I give it away too soon, some may choose not to click on the headline and read the actual post. Instead, I decided to draw it out a little bit first.
Okay, I can’t stand it anymore.
IT’S A GIRL!!!
We took our two older kids along with us to find out, and they were very excited to see the baby moving. It always makes it seem more “real” for the rest of us. Perhaps more important than finding out the gender was the fact that our baby girl checked out as 100% normal based on the stuff that they look for at this point. That was truly a relief, since there were a couple of small issues last time that required approximately 197 additional ultrasounds (read as: thousands of dollars).
Here is the quote of the day from my wife, Pam, about this topic:
Well, at least we don’t have to see the fetal cardiologist again. “Hey guys – we need you to see this doctor that makes umpteen gadzillion dollars per minute. He is here to tell you that everything is just fine. Please pay at the front.”.
The pictures on the right are authentic, and taken this afternoon:
- Sucking her thumb or chewing fingers

Needless to say, this was a terrific pre-Thanksgiving present. We are blessed beyond belief, and we have so much to be thankful for this year.
On a side note, we haven’t spent much time on names yet, so we are open to your suggestions for interesting girl names.
Our tastes tend to go to less common girl names – we have Aleah and Abrielle so far. Also, since we are constantly confusing their names with each other, we have definitely decided NOT to have another “A” name.
I can’t really promise you anything other than giving you credit, but we are all ears!
Thanks so much for reading about our special day. I really appreciate those of you who have kept us in your prayers. Have a very happy Thanksgiving!
