Progenity Test Results

On Friday, I planned to call Dr. Lloyd’s office to see if the Progenity test results were in.  As usual, my day got crazy busy and I did not have any down town and as things get added to my to do list, I start to forget what I already had planned!

As luck would have it, my phone rang in the afternoon and it was Dr. Lloyd’s office.  I answered thinking they were going to remind me of my appointment on Wednesday or inform me we needed to reschedule it.    I was wrong, the nurse told me she had the results of the Progenity test.  She told me that all genetic tests came out normal and then asked if I wanted to know the sex.   I said “of course!”.    Although, I was almost 100% certain that B&D want to know, I questioned it.  I called B, but she did not answer.

Later, during the day, I thought it sure would be fun to share the news in a fun video.   I wanted to paint my belly a specific color and take a new belly picture for B&D.  Madison thought that wasn’t good enough.  So we went over a few other ideas and I asked a fellow coach for some ideas.  She is pretty creative.   We came up with a plan.

B sent me a text Friday night to say that she would call me on Saturday.   I then told her that the doctor will probably give me the progenity test results on Wednesday at the doctor appointment.   Does the want to know the sex?   She said “yes!!”   Saturday before she could call me we created a video.   Unfortunately I can only add pictures to my blog or I would share video.  Originally, my husband and kids were going to spray me with Blue Silly String.  When we tested the string, it looked white not so much blue, so we got some blue face paint instead.  I had two shades of blue, Madison painted her hand bright blue and I painted Anthony’s hand royal blue.  Each one of them placed their hand on my belly.  During the video they held their hand there until I said, “B & D,  you are having a baby ….”. They lifted their hands and I said Boy!   Then my husband attacked me with the silly string and Madison smeared the paint all over my belly.  It was so much fun.   I immediately sent it to B.

She called me later just so excited.  She told me that she opened my text and noticed a video and had to stop it as quick as she could.  She ran to D, so they could watch it together.   I had to laugh when I got the results because out of the 9 babies I have carried only 2 girls were in the bunch!
