Baby Girl or Baby Boy?


I was going to blog about my One Little Word, but something came up...

Today, Richard and I went in for an ultrasound. I am 16 1/2 weeks now. They checked the baby up and down. We saw the brain, the kidneys, spinal cord, belly, fingers, legs, you name it :)

The baby is doing well and growing fast now. I was told the baby is 8 inches from head to toe. WOW!

So exciting. Such a blessing. So real.

And then the technician asked us, "Do you want to know the sex?"

I answered, "We're DYING to find out!"

So she checked. Richard thought he saw a penis and said, "It's a BOY. You could see it." I thought I saw something, too.

Hmmm...

The lady then checked and said, "Looks like a GIRL to me! There's nothing hanging out there so I am pretty confident that it's a GIRL."

And she zoomed in and we saw her private parts and then I realized it really does look like a GIRL.

My beautiful baby girl. The baby girl my Mom always talked about before she passed away. My little angel girl.

How lucky are we? I'm thrilled and excited and just praying that I stay healthy and strong throughout this pregnancy and that our baby is healthy. I have a lot of faith and that faith gets me through each and every day...
