It's a Girl!!
I am sorry that I didn't update last night, but I was emotionally and physically drained. We found out yesterday, at the doctor, that we are having a baby girl! Jay was still grinning this morning when he left for school...he is so proud! I never thought that I was a "girlie" mom, but now I am so excited, I can hardly stand it. Her name is going to be Camden Jaye Ocheskey. I came up with this name along time ago, but I thought that I liked it for a boy. When I told Jay, he said he liked it better for a girl and I agreed. We got the name Jaye obviously from her daddy, but changed the spelling a little to make it more of a girls name. I have always liked the name Jaye for a girl (there was the cutest little girl that used to come to the pool that I lifeguarded at.)
The sonogram was so interesting. We got to see almost every part of her sweet little body. We got to see her femurs, kidneys, brain, liver, stomach, etc. They check for all sorts of things during this appointment (downs, spinalbifia, etc.) The doctor said that everything looks really good.
After the doctors appointment, Jay and I went to Outback to celebrate. The waitress probably thought we were either crazy or rude, because we were both on our phone most of dinner. We had lots of family to call;) I felt like I had just gotten engaged again...everytime you call someone, you tell the story over! With each person that I talked too, I got more and more excited. Every person that I called, screamed when I told them it was a girl. My face hurt from smiling by then end of the night
I told my class this morning what it was. I took a vote yesterday on whether they thought it was a boy or girl (girl=4, boy=18). I think I seriously upset some of the kids when I told them that it was a girl. All the little girls screamed and the boys were actually kind of mad. It was funny.
I am already planning to go to a new scrapbook store to start Camden's baby book. I have been waiting patiently (sort of) so that I knew what color paper to start buying. I already have all sorts of ideas...I spent most of the morning on line looking up page ideas.
Now that we know its a girl, the fun just begins. We can start registering, working on the nursery, and of course buying cute girl things. I think that Camden is going to be spoiled rotten...both Jay and I have lots of boys in our families (Aunt Thompson pointed that out to me last night;) I have already been working hard on what I want the nursery to look like. I want it to be a girls room, but not scream GIRL.
I am starting to feel a LOT better. I only get sick when I am really hungry. My back is starting to ache, but I am not complaining...at least I am not best buddies with the toilet. Last night, I think that I might have felt her kick for the first time. I am not sure, but I still got excited!!! On Thursday, I will post the pictures that we got from the doctor.
Lots of Love!
