As she woke up, she realized this Tuesday was different from every other. It was going to be a life-changing day. Her mom had come from miles away, and her fiance had taken the first few hours off of work just to be there. The three of them jumped into the car and made the short drive to the doctor’s office at the hospital. They were giddy and excited as they walked inside. As they sat in the waiting room, they contemplated and made their guesses.
Soon, the nurse came out, said it was their turn and led them back to their room. Her mom and fiance sat in the chairs as she lay on the bed. The nurse then used the ultrasound to check the baby and make sure all the organs and little fingers and toes were there. After that, the nurse checked the weight and spine. Everything looked good.
Anxious and excited, they watched the screen and waited for the nurse to ask the question they had been anticipating.
“Do you want to know if it’s a boy or a girl?” the nurse asked.
“Yes!” they all said.
The nurse moved the ultrasound up, down and around her stomach to get a good picture. She smiled as the nurse snapped the picture.
The nurse brought the picture up on the screen and told them that it was, in fact, a boy! They all cheered in excitement.
All three of them left the hospital with smiles that would remain on their faces for the rest of the day.
