It's a...

Boy? Girl? What is the WORLD ARE WE HAVING?????

Our first ultrasound on December 5, they told us we were having a BOY...
We were so excited. Andrew John Gough, how cute! Andrew and the boys were thrilled at the idea of outnumbering the girls forever. I was good because boys are so darn easy and fun-- plus, we've already got lots of fun boy clothes and toys!

But then, January 5, they said that is could possibly be a GIRL...
Okay... that's exciting too. Boy, girl, boy, girl... equal numbers. That would be fun. Plus, Emmaline was my easiest baby by far, and we've got SO MANY adorable clothes for a girl. The name would be perfect: Lillian Cherie Gough (Lily, after Great Grandma Gough and Cherie after my mom!) We started thinking pink...

So, which is it?!?!?!? It's been killing me. I mean, how do these women who wait to find out really bond with the baby if they don't even know what it is?! Don't get me wrong. I totaslly admire the patience of these women-- but I guess I just got too fed up waiting in the patience line in heaven and ducked out, because that is one virtue that I just don't have ANY of!

SO- today I went in for another ultrasound and some other testing and we finally found out. The perinatologist was pretty much 100% sure this time.

WHAT DO YOU THINK??? Is it a boy or a girl?

Okay, I'm guessing girl (or maybe wishing it). It would be so fun for Emmaline to have a sister! But then again, boys are great too...

Tif said...

First of all, I had no idea you were expecting again! Before I go any further, that deserves a great big CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!! How exciting!!! What's your due date?

Secondly, I'm voting boy!!

Can't wait to see you next week!!

DeAnne said...

Wow! Congrats! When are you due? I hope Emmaline gets a sister, so I'll vote girl. Boys are so fun, too, though. You seem happy either way. We wish you the best!

I want to say a girl! I can't wait to find out!

Jenn Hansen said...

I'm going to guess girl. What is funny is that Tyson and I have been planning on naming our little girl Lily.

Congrats girly! I think I heard a rumor you were pregnant, so I'm delighted to hear it confirmed. I'm one of those who waited to find out-- the first two times. I couldn't wait to find out with Roman and I think I'll be the same way should I find myself in the family way again ;).

As it is, I'm guessing girl.

Janae Squires said...

I didn't know either!!! CONGRATS!!! I am so happy for you and your family!!! I am guessing a boy! Can't wait to hear! When are you due?

Congratulations!! I thought you might be expecting after I saw you come out of the bathroom at church one Sunday. I told Gage I think Sister Gough has morning sickness! As time went on I waited for an announcement but then I decided you weren't because you don't look pregnant at all! I can't believe you can hide it until over 20 weeks!

I will say you are having a little girl. Pink is always fun! If it is a little girl she will be so beautiful just like her mommy and sister.

GIRL!!!! Us Evenhuis' Love Girls!

Tara said...

I'm going to take a stab at it and guess **BOY**. It'd be fun if it was a girl too though and it evened things out!

How exciting for you guys!! You must be thrilled. I can't wait to find out more!

Maura said...

I feel like everyone I know is expecting a girl (including my sis), so I am going say...little girl.

Rachel and Nathan Fisher said...

I can't believe that you haven't updated and told everyone what you are having ... rude!!!
