She's a Girl!

We had our Big Ultrasound on January 29th, revealing that we will, in fact, be having a little girl! It was a very long and thorough ultrasound, and we got to see every detail of our Little Girl, from the ventricles in her brain, to the ventricles of her heart. We even paid the few extra dollars for a DVD. We were a little disappointed at the short footage, but managed to get it loaded on YouTube, complete with a second-by-second description for those who may not know what to look for.

We got one printed picture. (I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get a few more, considering the price tag of the session.) In the second picture I outlined the profile of her actual face since it's not as easy to make out as the profile of her skull.

She appears to be very strong and perfectly healthy, with all the right parts in all the right places. Thank you, Lord. Everything is extremely proportional, with her calculated due date exactly one day earlier than the last ultrasound, and a whopping two days earlier than the first estimated date. I think we'll go with the average and call it June 16th, although we are entirely prepared for her to be at least a week "late."

We can't wait to meet her in twenty more weeks.
