It's a...

Today was the day! We had our "20 week" ultrasound, although I'm officially at 21 weeks. Around 1:30 this afternoon we were at the Maternal Fetal Medicine at EMMC and I got some warm jelly stuff rubbed all over my tummy. Scott sat next to me in the rocking chair - I told him he's getting ready for when the baby comes. So we got to see our little one from just about every angle. We did find out the gender, even though Scott originally didn't want to know. It's a GIRL! Yay ! I was wrong on my gut instinct, but Scott actually thought it was a girl. So it was exciting to finally know. I know other people don't mind waiting until the big day to find out, but I am too impatient! Now I can plan plan plan, and just pray that the technician was correct. She said she can't say 100%, but she hasn't been wrong in a very long time.

Anyway, here are some pics of the little alien girl!
Note: edited to add the photo of the "girl" identification (at Sarah's request).

I love the one of her hand up. I picture her saying "Stop poking me! Go away so I can grow. No more pictures please." Of course I'm sure it could be more positively viewed as a wave or high five. Did you see the shot that determined the gender? My other friends did and it was REALLY obvious! Anyhoo, very exciting!

Yes, we did see the shot with the gender. It's a little unclear to me, but the sonographer was pretty sure. I think it's more obvious for a boy, but with a girl it shows a couple lines. I'll post it for you!

Scott will be such a funny daddy of a little girl, I think... heehee.

Don't you love love love getting ultrasounds? OH my word - they are one of my absolute favorite things! It just seems to make things so much more real! Man - we've got to move home. The girly wee ones are taking over the population up there!
