It is possible to find out the sex at 16 weeks!









As you all know I am a Labor and Delivery nurse. Which comes with a few advantages when you are pregnant. Wes being aware of these advantages, asked me anxiously a couple of times if I was going to try to find out the sex early at work. Well I did, last Sunday the 24th , a very slow Sunday at work I made a comment to one of the other nurses that I wonder if my baby is a boy or girl. She said lets see and asked one of the doctors to scan me. We gathered in one of the rooms, myself(laying on a bed as if I was a patient), 3 other nurses, and the doctor. After a few seconds of finding Baby Bell one of the nurses said, "oh my gosh, is that a Penis?" The doctor looked at me and said "Jonnique are for sure that you want to know the sex? And if I tell you do you pinkie swear that you will not go out and buy a certain color, pick a name, and tell everyone?" I said " Yes doctor, I want to know!" He then said, "I am 99.9% sure that you and your husband are having a boy!" The three nurses screamed and I just smiled with joy in my heart, as I seen my babies glory on the ultrasound.

I called Wes that night from work, but did not want to tell him over the phone. I just told him that I loved him, good night, and that I would be home a little late in the morning(I work night shift 7pm-7am) because I was having my 3 month evaluation done with my boss before I left work(which was true and it went great!).

Before I came home in the morning I stopped by a CVS store and picked up "IT'S A BOY" card and balloon. When I arrived home Wes was still sleeping but had awaken to me coming in the house. He yelled from the bedroom "how did your evaluation go,babe?" I told him to hold on and I would show him in a moment. I walked up stairs with the balloon, card, and a camera all behind my back. I turned on the light in the bedroom. Wes asked with his eyes still closed, "why are you turning on the light?" I said, "I need to show you my evaluation." I gave him the card. He read out loud " Cute and Cuddly, It's a Boy", with a strange face. Understanding soon and finally kicked in and his faced turned into excitement along with heartfelt laughter! I then handed him his balloon with a kiss.

We immediately called all of our immediate family members and told some of our close friends that day. I still wanted to be 100% before we shared it with everybody. So yesterday, Friday the 30th we had a 3D ultrasound completed. Wes is living proof that his baby and him are the same sex. The 99.9% that the doctor at my job gave me is now 100% without a doubt.

What wonderful news! I love the pictures of Daddy's reaction play by play. Have fun with all the preparations. I found the book "Baby Bargains" to be very helpful in deciding what brands were the best in each price range. It really helps you figure out what you need, what to look for in each product and not waste your money on things you won't use. I hope you have a Babies R Us near by. It will become your most frequented store very soon!:)Ok, that's all of the unsolicited advice from me, I'm sure you get plenty! Congratulations!
