We had our 20 week ultrasound yesterday afternoon, and we're pretty sure we're having a little girl!! Now, I say pretty sure, because she wasn't being the most cooperative during the appointment, but our U/S Tech took a good long time with us, and felt pretty confident in her girl prediction by the time we were finished. Girls are always a bit harder to tell, since it's more obvious when you see boy parts, as opposed to the absence of something. But, Moira was right and I guess she'll get her wish to share her room with this little one!
Other than determining gender, we saw lots of little fingers and toes, a 4 chambered heart, a well developing brain, all bones and organs where and how they should be, and a little baby that's already measuring just over a week ahead of her due date! They estimate she was about 13 oz, which puts her in the 90th percentile in size already - I guess we really do make big babies, no matter what kinda weight this Mama gains! She also confirmed my theory that I have an anterior placenta (in the front) this time, which explains why I didn't feel this baby moving as early as I did with our other two. I got kudos from our OB on my slow & steady weight gain, which was the first time EVER in the history of my pregnancies, and I only added another couple of pounds to the grand total so far. We were blessed with an uplifting appointment, healthy baby & Mommy, and now I can't wait to start shopping for PINK! :o)
Here's our baby girl, snugly as can be inside Mommy!
And finally, here's a clip of the two big kids announcing their baby Sister to the world!
