I'm so excited I can't contain myself! For those that don't remember, I was too cheap to pay $200 to find out the sex of the baby, so I decided to just let it be a surprise. However, we were becoming very concerned because Jessi is so adament about wanting a sister and doesn't want anything to do with another brother.

Anyway, a few months ago, I put my name on a waiting list for a free sonogram at the local teaching college. They recertify sonogram techs twice a year and need pregnant women to practice on. I was told the odds of me getting in were slim since I was so far down the list and I had pretty much given up!

I just received a phone call from them and was told to be there at 2:00 this afternoon for my sonogram! Woohoo! Now ... hopefully Baby Lloyd is not shy!

I'll keep ya posted!

YAY Dawn! That is great news. Does your insurance not cover 1 sonogram? That is pretty cheap! Ours covers only 1. Our old coverage allowed 2. I seems that insurance is getting more expensive and providing less coverage. I'm with you though, I wouldn't pay $200 for a sonogram either.

It only covers any medically necessary sonograms. They no longer consider a sonogram around 5 - 6 months medically necessary.

I can't complain -- they paid for 4 in the first 10 weeks and will pay for one more near my due date ... but I want one for my purposes! LOL

That is so exciting Dawn! I remember you talking about signing up for that sonogram. That is really exciting that they could fit you in!

I can't wait to hear what you are having!!!

Congrats!!! Are you so excited!?? I always hope to find out too!!!

I hope this helps as far as preparing Jessi! How did she do with Cody??? I only have one little one so I don't really have any words of wisdom, however I think when the baby gets here she will be so excited about a little baby!

Jessica is such a little rat ... when I told her that she was having another little brother, she says "I KNEW it was a boy! Yay, I'm having another brother!"

Guess I was worried for nothing! LOL

I'm really pretty happy it's a boy. It's really more convenient since I can now bunk the two boys in the same room and not have to worry about living arrangements.

He's already estimated to be 4 lbs 10 oz .... so I'm guessing I'm in for another big lug!

Ummm .... Dawn, if my mind serves me right, didn't Jessie tell you you were having a boy when you told her you were PG? And that it was due at Christmas? Which it is.
