It's a GIRL... well we're 85% sure!


That's right... a GIRL! The ultrasound tech said she is 85% sure that we are having a girl! I am only 12 1/2 weeks so it is still a little early to tell what she/he is for sure. It was so cool though to do an ultrasound and see a little baby. Our last ultrasound just showed a little peanut and this one we were able to see a real baby, well a baby that looks like a human baby! Matt, my mom came with to me to see a specialist, Dr. Cantrell, for some special but now-a-day typical testing for down syndrome and other things on Monday. I really liked this visit because I didn't have to "go to the bathroom" in a little cup like the other ones. I just laid back and enjoyed the ultrasound show! They show the ultrasound up on a flat screen TV and it was just like being at the movies. The tech explained what we are looking at and made sure everything is like it should be. Then she pointed out some cool things like the brain, the stomach, the umbilical cord, the two arms and two legs. Then came the moment of truth... could she tell the sex of the baby??? My mom says that she has never seen or heard of anyone that was able to tell the sex at 12 weeks, so I didn't really get my hopes up but I definitely wanted the tech to try. So she had to push the baby around a little bit because she had her legs crossed Indian style and then the umbilical cord was right in between here legs. After a little bit of jumbling though we were able to see the HAMBURGER! That's right, girls have hamburgers and boys have hot dogs! After seeing the hamburger the tech said she was 85% sure that it was a girl.

It's pretty crazy the technology that we have now! After doing the regular ultrasounds, she did a few 3 dimensional ones... they are pretty cool too! You could see our little girl stretching her legs out and having a good time moving around in there.



It is so amazing that I have this 3 inch little baby in me... I can't feel anything and I'm not any bigger. Sometimes one wonders if it's all real, but then we have an ultrasound or hear the heartbeat and we believe!

Congratulations! I hope the tech turns out to be right! I've always been at least 19 weeks before they would even attempt a guess at the sex. I guess that is what we get for have babies in the olden days (over 6 years ago LOL) or in a small town. We were always told to look for 3 parallel lines, so hamburger is a new one to me! Too funny.
