Biggest Shock

So, we went for our 3D ultrasound this evening.

The woman asked if we knew the sex. I replied saying Yes, but Id like you to confirm it.

She moves the wand on my belly for about 30 seconds and said, Its a Boy, right?

OH MY GOODNESS, THE LITTLE GIRL INSIDE ME HAS A PENIS! WE'RE HAVING A BOY!

Ill fill this in more when I can think straight again..

Laura Humble said...

OMG.. I read your post through a friend who reads your post! I can not believe that happened to You!!!! That happened to me!!! My Son was a "girl" until I went in for some tests for my baby's heart rate and she was asking if I knew the sex and I said of course it is a girl.. and She told me no that indeed I was having a BOY!!!!

Tabitha '2009' said...

Candace said...

Oh my goodness!!! That just happened to some friend's of my aunt's a few weeks ago, but they found out in the delivery room that they had a girl instead of the boy they were expecting! That would have to be a huge shock, for sure!

Jess said...

Lol, that's great. I guess that happens sometimes but wow. At least you didn't paint the nursery, right? I always thought I wanted daughters so bad, but when I found out babybyrd was a boy, now I can't imagine anything else. You'll get used to the idea quickly!

*de-lurking*
What a shock! Are you for real?
I follow your blog as I'm a week behind you (pregnancy wise) and I sure hope this doesn't happen to me.
Who do you believe - scan one or two?

Stephanie said...

Oh my gosh..I cant imagine what you are feeling right now!
I have to say though...little boys are so fun! Mine is almost 7 and he is such a little lover! Mommas boy for sure!
I knw you are happy as long as its healthy, but I bet you were in tears.

Megan said...

Sarah said...

Oh my.... Wow!!!! I can't imagine what you must be feeling! I had to read your post about 5 times to make sure I was getting it right!

Glad you found out before your baby showers.... or he might be surrounded by alot of pink! :)

Mary said...

WHAT!?! That is crazy! At least you found out now before the big arrival!!!

Carrie said...

Hello! I am usually just a lurker but I had to leave a comment after I read this entry...well I remember how earlier on your thought you would and really wanted a boy and then you were to be blessed with a princess...well on your last belly shot I said to myself that looks like a boy belly! Then here I am reading that you are having a BOY! WOW!!! How exciting! But all the pink you now have to exchange for blue..but who cares right! It a BABY!!! :0) Bless you and your sweet little family!

The Patterson's said...

OH MY!!!! I have just been having a discussion about this on my blog and Facebook...whether we should find out or not? I bet you are so glad you double checked before you had a room of pink! :-)

kim_brough said...

SHUT UP!!! !!! Guess you'll have to have a yard sale for all those girl clothes! And you'll love him just the same as you would have loved her. :-)

Bri said...

wow! I don't know what else to say-that's crazy! :) yay for a sweet healthy baby boy!

WantWait&Pray said...

Dave and Elaine said...

Whoa!!!!!!

The Pifer's said...

OMG!!!!! That is so crazy!!!! How much girl stuff do you already have??? I am glad she wanted to confirm it with you!!!!!

Love ya!

Suzanne said...

OMG! I can't even imagine your surprise. I asked our tech to double check ours on Sunday and luckily, it was the same.

Time to switch gears...

Congrats!

Becky said...

I've been reading your blog for a while but haven't commented. I'm one week behind you in my pregnancy and am now nervous about this happening to me. What a shock! Little boys are fabulous, though.

April said...

WHAT?!?!?!?! OH MY!!! That IS a shock!

VAF said...

Wow, I had heard about stuff like this happening! This must be a lot to process...Well, congratulations on your baby boy (I'm having a boy too, at least I think I am!)--just think, your little guy will be an awesome older brother to a little sister some day :)

Becky said...

That is crazy!! Well, I know a boy named Hadley, so you could keep the name if you like it! There's at least one other guy out there!

Xillary said...

Wow! If you don't go with Hadley, maybe you could go with Hayden??

Emily said...

What a surprise! I've been following your blog since I found out that I'm pregnant (due in Dec). I'm having a boy too and am really excited for you -- but shocked too!!

He'll be wonderful!

Jen, Terry, and Ethan said...

Oh Erin! I have only commented a couple times before, but had to leave you one now. This was one of my fears when I had my son, and I didn't have a second ultrasound to confirm, so when he came out I had to confirm that he was a boy! You are going to love having a little boy, I promise!!

Allison said...

OH MY GOSH!!!! I bet you almost passed out! Holy crap!

Stacey said...

omg! thats crazy. Now you have all sorts of girl stuff that you need to trade for boy stuff. Funny story...the doctors told my mom that my little sister was a boy and we didn't know it was a girl until she was born. My dad said "I don't know much about babies but that doesn't look like a boy to me. I think there's something missing." Anyway, enjoy your baby boy! He will definately bring a smile to your face!!

Chickie said...

oh my goodness! that is crazy!!!

Jamie said...

You are joking, right??

Christa @ Quintooples said...

HOLY MOLY!!!!!

It's good you found out now instead of at delivery!!!!! ACK!

Tiffany said...

Oh my!!!!!!! What?????? I remember the shock I had when that happened to me, but wow.... Yours happened much later. A boy, oh boy!!! I think you need to go shopping.

beth ewing said...

when i saw the title...that was my guess. are you sure this lady was right?

Bill & Angie Ryan said...

GET OUT OF TOWN!!! That must have been a huge shock! Your head must been spinning! I can't wait to find out what his name will be. Have you told your family yet?

Breathe, Breathe....This is a great thing! A little man! How exciting!!!!!!!

Sisrea said...

*lurker here as well* I have been follwing your blog since you got your BFP, but had to comment when i saw that post and WOW what a shock that must have been!! Don't worry if you feel a little gender disapointment or sadness over the fact that you have a little boy instead of a little girl. I know i was disapointed that i was having girls for a while when i found out... It might take a little bit but you will fall in love with your little man soon!!

The Ashes said...

Oh my gosh!!
All those cute clothes you bought.... *cries*

Guess you'll have to save the name Hadley for the next one..

JB said...

Nothing like a baby boy! The are snuggly and they love their mamas unconditionally. Good thing you opted for the extra scan...time to change gears! Congrats!

Allisyn said...

oh my gosh... that is crazy.. guess you have all the little girl stuff for your next baby.. time to start buying blue.

Joy said...

NO WAY!!! This is exactly, EXACTLY why I did the 3D sonogram will all three pregnancies. WOW!!!

LucieP said...

hahahahahahaha

wow!

cannot believe it!

Barefoot said...

OMG -- this is crazy and totally something that I think about. Can't wait to hear your thoughts once the shock has worn off. :)

Kelly said...

OMG! I can't believe they were wrong! Ugh, I can't imagine!!
Sorry to baby Hadley!

On another note...
check out the baby blog swap I am hosting...let me know if you are interested in joining in. :)

Heather said...

HOLY CRAP!...I did the same thing you did at the 3d ultrasound and had them confirm (I had 2 3d ultrasounds) and they confirmed girl both times and I had it reconfirmed again today at a regular u/s with my OB....so I totally get why you wanted confirmation..that was something that always worried me...not because I didn't want a boy but because of all the pink we have...SO MUCH PINK!

Time to switch gears....a little boy!! That is so exciting! You are going to have so much fun with your little monkey!

P.S~ I did guess boy in your baby poll thingy..I guess I was right!

Meant to be a mom said...

SHUT UP!!!! Oh my gosh!!!! Erin, I'm in shock as I'm sure you are also in shock. I can imagine your probably upset but still excited because its your baby and its going to be a son. But bless your heart. Sweetie, I...... I don't even know what to say.

Thinking of you guys. I'm glad he's healthy though. Thats the most important thing right now. And hey it makes for a interesting story one day.

The Rileys said...

OH my...I am in shock just reading this! Congratulations on the little man!

The Rileys said...

OH my...I am in shock just reading this! Congratulations on the little man!

kdactyl said...

The exact same thing happened to us....3 u/s said girl and at 28 weeks we went for a 3-D just for fun and there was the penis....I practically flew off the table....but the strange thing was that I had dreams all week that I would go there and they would tell me it was a boy! Congrats on your boy. You will love it!

Ashley said...

What..that is a SHOCKER!! Glad you found out before the big day;) Boys are wonderful...it must have been meant to be!! ((HUGS))

Mary said...

Well, looks like Hadley needs to become a Hayden or something along that lines.
Congrats on the blue - even though it is a shock right now.

I have enjoyed following your journey. Good luck!!!

Isaac Dakota said...

Wow! You always hear about these things happening but when it happens to someone you "know" . . .

I have a little boy who is 2 1/2 and he is the best thing that ever happened to our family! He is sooooo much fun and always wants to be held by momma. Once you get used to the idea you'll look back and laugh.

Kahla said...

Oh my gosh, that is a big shock!!!! Imagine had you not had the ultrasound and found out when he was born... wow! I've heard of this happening, but not often... I'm in shock too! Now that being said I will say that boys rock and I truly believe that every little girl deserves a big brother! Congrats on your baby boy, can't wait to see pics!

Saffy said...

Um, wow! That's exciting, and talk about a change of plans :) Hopefully you have lots of lemon and mint coloured things? HE will be lovely I'm sure!

Stephanie RN BSN (to be!) said...

Seriously?? Holy cow! Congrats on your baby BOY!

Mush said...

That is crazy! I can't believe it! I've heard of it happening though, but not usually that way around.

I hope your okay. At least you have a bit of time to get your head around it all before your little boy arrives.

Quite lucky you had another scan really as it would have been an even bigger shock at the birth.

Little boys are wicked and you can keep all your girly stuff for your next baby, and the baby after that, and the baby after that! xxx

Mimi said...

Holy crap girl!!!! I am shocked too!!! My husbands jaw even dropped last night. Well, if you need to get rid of any of the resale items. (Not sure if you can take those back or not) Let me know! I'll buy them off of you if you need to get rid of them.

Boys are so cool! No matter what, you are going to have a precious baby!!! Yay!

williamson family said...

I'm speechless... I really am. I just had to re-read that entry 3 times before it sank in. I absolutely couldn't imagine what you are feeling right now... confusion? excitement? I am sure they are all very overwhelming emotions. The good news... you will soon be excited and adjusted to everything all over again.

Since you guys are planning to have another one shortly after, be sure and keep the goodies you already have. I'm certain they will come in handy!

All of that said, I'm so very happy for you guys! Now I can't wait to hear all of the new stuff as you go through a new journey, re-buying, decorating and the name! SOOOO Exciting!

Ps. To be honest, I just had a strong feeling that it was a boy originally and was shocked to hear it was a girl. YEAH for BOYS!

Brittany said...

this happened to another friend of mine this summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! same thing, thought they were having a girl - and ended up having the CUTEST baby boy!!!!! weird, huh?????

Baby boys are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pete, Alison and Charlie said...

Oh my goodness! What a shock that must have been for you! My sister was told her baby was a boy (she didn't even want to know the sex, but the sonographer just 'let slip') and she was so shell-shocked when her DAUGHTER made her appearance that it took a bit of the 'shine' off a happy day. So although I'm sure you're pretty stunned right now, it's good that you've got a little while to get used to the idea and stock up on some blue clothes! (I've had two sons, by the way, and boys are yummy!) I've been lurking for a while, since before you got your BFP - but this has really dragged me out of 'lurkdom'! Take care X

Mae said...

Oh my goodness!!! That's crazy, but I know you and your hubby will love the little boy inside of you just as much as you would have loved the little girl! :) Momma's boys are the sweetest things in the whole world! Hope you are getting more rest!

ks and jd said...

WHAT!!!???

Crazy! OMG! Well I guess your glad you asked her just to confirm! Can you imagine if you didn't find out until delivery day?!?!

Go team Blue!!!

just me, dawn said...

LOL....you hear it happens all the time, guess you are proof! Congrats!

Mrs. Hammer said...

Holy Pete! No way! We'll...you'll be all set for a girl next time. I guess it's good you found out now. You both must be in shock :)

Cari said...

Oh my goodness...craziness. I hope it's all starting to sink in. Like others said, hang on to the girl stuff, your next peanut could be a girl. I am sure you will love having a little momma's baby boy!

Tabitha said...

OK, so I'm totally dying over here! I can't wait to hear all about it; I want to know what's going throug your head right now! I hope it sinks in quickly so we can all hear about it! lol!

Alyssa said...

HOLY COW!!!!

Mike and Katie said...

oh, i missed this announcement! wow!

Jen said...

Oh, how exciting! Shocking, but exciting! Congratulations on your son!

Michele said...

WOW! Congrats!

Cara said...

Gotta tell you my pastor and his wife were told their first was a BOY and planned accordingly. At birth - they found out she was in fact NOT a boy!

Ha! Glad you found out now!!
