Team Pink

by Alison Friedman in Mommy's Musings, Pregnancy

Well, it’s official. Our child tried to resist, but with a little poking and prodding (and cold orange juice and jumping up and down), the ultrasound tech was finally able to get good look at the… goods.

Perhaps it’s due to pregnancy’s hunger and cravings, but of course we use food to describe the baby (See Bryan’s post about comparing the baby’s development to produce). The analogy has been hot dog vs. hamburger. The hot dog is for obvious reasons, and the hamburger is for the 3 lines that make up a side view of a bun, burger, and bun. It’s safe to say, after a check and a re-check, that we are definitely cooking up one heck of a cute little hamburger!


She’ll hate us for it later, but what you’re looking at is the downward tushie view of the baby’s indoor plumbing. Don’t worry. This picture will not be going into her Bat Mitzvah party montage.

Team Pink’s roster officially has Baby Friedman on the All Star list and we are super excited! There are lots of adorable little girls in our family (shout out to both sets of Siegel cousins!) and we know that our daughter is going to be in great company! We can’t wait to see if she’ll be the sporty type (although, where would that come from?!) or the artsy type (duh!), and learn more about her personality.

It’s just so exciting to put a pronoun with the baby! “It” was getting a little too alien-esque. Somehow, especially for this almost 17-week pregnant mama, knowing the baby’s sex brings me a little closer to finding out just what’s in store for this little person and our lives.

And yes, we finally know what side of the store to shop on.
