20 weeks never felt longer than the 20 weeks we waited to find out if our baby bear was a boy or girl. When my doctor's office said they would schedule the anatomy scan at my 20 week appointment, I originally didn't think anything of it. It wasn't until some of my other pregnant friends found out they were having little boys at 16 and 18 weeks that the days started to drag.

The night before the appointment was like Christmas Eve. Sleep was nearly impossible for Steven and me. Luckily, the appointment was 9am so when we woke up we didn't have wait much longer.

The scan started off by checking all the baby's measurements. Everything looked great, which is always what you want to hear! It was finally time to find out, but the baby wouldn't stay still. After what seemed like forever, the technician announced that we were looking at....
a little girl!
We could not have been more thrilled!
The rest of the day was kind of a blur. Steven and I left the doctor's office, headed out to get some breakfast, and started calling family. After food we went to the mall to start shopping for our daughter. Let's just say the trip was successful and included these adorable shoes from Gymboree.
The shopping did not stop there. When we left the mall we went to Home Depot and picked up supplies for the nursery. Painting began that afternoon and preparations haven't really stopped since that day.
More baby girl, and nursery, details to come!
