We are Having A . . .
In case you could not read the ultrasound, we are having a GIRL! I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am also very shocked. Do not buy the intelligender test, it was wrong! The ultrasound tech asked us how much we spent on that test and that was the first clue that she was a girl. She said she was 100 percent sure it was a girl since her legs were open so well. Her heart beat was 149 which is still pretty low for a girl. More importantly, she looks perfectly healthy and my blood pressure was perfect and I am not having blood pressure issues anymore.
When she said it was a girl, I cried because I was so happy just like with Jackson (I really wanted a boy to be our first child). The ultrasound tech had to go get me tissues and I was crying saying my dad was right. God had given my dad so many signs it was a girl. Even after I did that test, he would ask me how Abigail was doing. Also, on the way to the ultrasound appointment this morning, Charlie heard some country song about giving birth to a baby girl and he thought that it might be a sign. Crazy! I cannot wait to go buy bows and dresses! Her name will probably be Abigail Easterlin Wallace and we will call her Abby. In seminary, I did a paper on Abigail who is in Bible and I just knew if I ever have a girl that is what I wanted to name her (my mom's name is Gail so she was partly be named after her). The name Abigail means "father's joy" which is perfect. Ah! I am still shocked writing this. I have not been sick at all and I have felt exactly the same way I did with Jackson. God is so good and gets all the glory!
