Turns out my dreams were correct!
Baby Ingle is a GIRL!!!!!
She had a strong heart rate of 151, and looked fantastic during the ultrasound! I think I fell in love immediately after seeing HER look so much like an actual baby now, and not just a little peanut.
Little girl was moving around like crazy! She was head down, and kept stretching out like she was about to take a nap. She’d throw her arms back behind her head like she was relaxing, and it was kind of hilarious. The tech mentioned that she looked to be a great size, and that I should start feeling some movement pretty soon with how active she is. Ah!
Adam has thought since day 1 that it was a girl, and I had a pretty early hunch that it was a girl, ESP once my morning sickness started. And over the course of our pregnancy so far, I’ve had FIVE solid “it’s a girl!” dreams. My mom even had a dream that it was a girl like right when we found out we were pregnant. I tried to convince myself that maybe it could be a boy because there’s no way my gut instinct could be that spot-on, and I had read an article online that said whatever you dream is typically opposite of what you end up having. I think in my heart though I knew it was a girl. I’m pretty sure we would have truly been shocked if they had told us boy!
I have always wanted to have a girl first, and a part of me could always see us with a little girl first. I am already dreaming of what she’ll look like, and who she’ll resemble most. Now that we know what Baby Ingle is, I’m feeling like a protective mama bear and want to protect her as much as possible!! Stay away boys! She’s not dating until she’s 25!
Let the shopping begin!
