It’s a girl!
The ultrasound was absolutely fascinating, which distracted me from the fact that I had to pee (and, no, I didn’t make my 32 ounce quota in 15 minutes). Jason and I had a great time identifying parts, and it was a lot easier to see than we expected. Everything seemed to be in its proper place, though we’ll have to wait for the radiologist’s report to know for sure. They call if there’s anything abnormal. The ultrasound technician said that she weighs about 1 pound, and her head measured at just over 2 inches in diameter.
Since it was after lunch, we got to see her punching and kicking a bunch. And those were the movements that I didn’t feel! We also got to see her heart beating and the smart software calculated it at 155 bpm. It was a pretty cool show!
Now we have the hard task of picking out a name. Boy names are much easier for us. I’m glad we still have 20 weeks to decide!
