Soon after discovering I was pregnant, Stephen and I agreed that we would like to find out the gender of our baby. Our reasoning was, “Why not?! We would like to know in order to get ready, call him or her by name before he or she is born, and we are curious!”
We waited until our 20-week ultrasound in the middle of June, which was the day we started our big road trip. Since we didn’t have time to throw a big party a day or two later, we wanted to find out if our baby was a boy or girl at the doctor’s office and then tell people ourselves through cakes and signs.
