After a glass of OJ - heard that OJ makes the baby stay awake - we were on our way. The ultrasound was amazing. She first asks us if we are going to find out and I assure her - um, yea! Then we got to see the baby - arms, legs, belly, heart, head, brain, etc. It was so amazing to see the little one moving around. It looks so much bigger than last time! The tech tried several times to get a good profile pic of the little one, but it kept its hands in front of the face the whole time! So no go. Shy one, I guess.
So then she tells C to get the camera ready - we brought our Flip camera to document the "reveal". She moves the wand down to the legs and says that the baby is very cooperative and that we have a little .........................................
We couldn't believe it! Both C and I swore it was a boy. I teared up a bit - pregnancy hormones - and looked at C and said "A little girl!!???" It was a really wonderful moment. So here are some pic of my little lady ...
Here is her foot and leg.
Here are her hands up by her face in an "I surrender" pose!
Although she is still looking slightly away.
Here is her right arm covering the left side of her face - just
like an adult sleeping with their eyes in their elbow nook.
And here is the face and hands. STILL turing away.
So she is either shy or thought it was too early in the morning to take photos. haha. But either way ... we are having a little girl!!!
On a side note: It was funny though - it looked like C's face aged 5 years. I asked him if he was stressed now and he said yes. He is going to be such a protective dad.
