It's a GIRL!

We had our first major ultrasound today at 20 weeks, and we discovered that we're having a baby GIRL! I was surprised because I had this "feeling" that it was a boy all along. I guess my maternal instinct hasn't quite found it's niche?? HA! Well, we were both quite excited to learn that she was squirming around and healthy. All of her measurements fell within the proper developmental guidelines, and both the technician and my doctor seemed pleased with her!

I was overwhelmed by the experience and in complete awe! I could not believe she was moving around so much and I couldn't really feel much of anything! The doctor reassured me not to worry about it and that I would really start feeling regular movement between weeks 24-28. One thing was certain, she became more of a real person to me (us) after today. What a fantastic miracle!! Thank you, Lord, for this precious blessing.

This is her profile with her head on the left, her arms up above:

This proves her gender (see arrow):

These are her cute little feet!

Here is Momma the day we found out it was a girl:

Wow, let me be the first to say that these things can be wrong (dont you hate parents like me!)

We were told "99% girl"... we had a 9lb, 8oz baby boy Alex... i'm just sayin'!

So happy for you both!
