I Was Wrong. . .

She's a girl!!
I was totally shocked to find that out at our u/s today. She gave us a great shot of her girly parts so there is no confusion.

We still haven't gotten the full report back as far as her health, but my parts were being agreeable so far. The placenta is back and away from the cervix and the cervix itself was closed and measured 3.9 cm. Our baby weighs in at 11 oz. and is measuring exactly 18w5d (which I am). She was opening and closing her hand and trying to grab onto the umbilical cord. DH and I only got to see her at the end of the whole appt. because the tech had the screen to her for the first 45 minutes taking measurements and getting pictures for the radiologist to read. After that though, the tech was really nice and showed us different views of her and we got some really great pictures.

I was pretty worked up last night worrying that they'd find an empty sac and tell me I've just been getting fat, or the baby wouldn't have a heartbeat, or any other numerous worries I went through. Wemberly and I were BFFs. Of course, I won't fully be able to relax until the final report, but it made me feel better to see her moving around in there.

Now, I know I am pretty biased, but I think she's cute already:


She's got big feet like her daddy.

DH and I went to Yosemite National Park last weekend with my MIL. We stayed for two nights took some leisurely strolls, ate some great meals and just relaxed. While we were there we made our first baby purchase. Little socks that say "Bears say Grrr." We also went to the mall today after finding out the sex and bought a couple of onsies that I thought were very cute. Having a girl is going to be draining on my pocketbook, although nothing about her has been inexpensive so far anyway.
(This will count as my 18 week belly shot too)

And I am so honored! I've been given my first ever blog award by two friends. Thanks Ashley and Carrie! In my next post I'll pass it along. . .

When you said 8w, you meant 18w, right?

WOO HOO! Girls are so much fun, and I am SOO happy that she looks all perfect and cute in there. I agree, she is already adorable!

You and me and Wemberly... we're in it together. ;) I just read it to my daughter the other day, and boy, it fits. I am so glad you introduced me to myself as a mouse.

Congrats again! Thinking pink!

Hugs!

I am SO excited for you! I know (and am still learning) ALL about girls. I have 2 sisters as well as my precious Bailey! I LOVE girls! Of course, you'd have been happy with a boy... but now I will send written instructions on hair fixing :) LOL! CONGRATS! She does look beautiful already! :) You should DEFINITELY do a 3D ultrasound when you are about 24 weeks. It is SO worth it. They put it to music and I would just watch it and cry as I watched my bundle move around! Ok, stop rambling now! HEHE, Girls make me giddy I guess :)
