Ultrasound Update

Okay, okay, I know (some of) you have been waiting for this...
The ultrasound yesterday went well.  It was long.  We were in the office for more than 2 hours and had three different techs checking Sprout out.  Seems she was pretty comfy in there and didn't want to move so they could measure her arm and heart properly. 

Did you catch that?

It appears we're going to be having a girl!  However, I still need to confirm that with the midwives as the techs made it clear that they weren't allowed to say anything.  The one that we spent the most time with did try to give us a view of the "bits" but neither Jen nor I could tell what was what.  The reason we're thinking girl, is that when showing us the close up on the sex, the tech pointed and said, "That is the cord you want to look here" and pointed again (Jen and I shrugged at each other).  Then later, when trying to get arm measurements, said something like, "I can't get her arm", whereas, like the other techs, up until (and following) that she had been very careful to say "the baby". 

While my mother's intuition may have been off, I am beyond happy.  As I would have been if we found/find out we're having a boy.   

So, do you want to see her?

Our beautiful baby:

  2. YAY!!!! For an elusive and stubborn little girl :) Although, I have always heard that boys are for sure boys, but girls can turn out to be boys, lol.

  4. Yay, so exciting! I've been stalking your blog. LOL. Congratulations! And I agree, it would be very strange for them to say "her" instead of "the baby".

  6. Hooray! We did IUI and ended up with a girl as well (as you know) so I don't know how much truth there is to the "IUI makes more boys" belief. Congrats! And if she actually turns out to be a boy, congrats then too! Super excited for you.

    1. It would have been nice to be able to reuse all The Bean's clothes for this baby, but I'll admit, I'm a bit tickled at the idea of being able to pick out some super-cute girl outfits.

    1. Without a doubt.

      The Bean pointed to my tummy this morning, said "baby" and then kissed it. My heart just melted.

      This little one is so lucky to have him for a big brother.

    1. I think it'll be nice to have a boy and a girl. Hopefully The Bean doesn't feel too singled out as the only boy in the immediate family!
