We’re having a girl! 🙂
Anne Bean II is well on her way. She’s already got a big head and quite a sassy profile.
Pictures will come soon… we got a lot of good ones. The Dr. is absolutely positive she’s a she and labeled three separate photos and included arrows indicating the evidence. We won’t be posting THOSE pictures, however. A girl’s gotta have some privacy, ya know?
We’re thrilled, of course, though I’m a little nervous about entering the foreign territory of hair bows and dollies. I was a ninja-turtle kid myself and was not a fan of dress-wearing:
To my mom’s credit, she persisted in buying me purples and pinks, but I was much more likely to be out scraping my knees than I was to be inviting stuffed animals in for a cup of tea.
In other ultrasound news, the heart, brain, etc. all look good. She’s a mover and shaker already. This was no surprise to me because I feel her all day long now (and Scott even felt her for the first time a few days ago). However, it was still nice to have the Dr. exclaim “woah, this baby just won’t sit still! She was head-down three seconds ago and suddenly she’s breech!” 🙂
I do have what looks to be placenta previa, but my Dr. is optimistic that things can still change in the next month or so. I’ll have another ultrasound in 7 weeks and that will determine whether I’ll have to be really careful for the rest of pregnancy and have an automatic C-section. I’m hoping my placenta will get its act together before then! 🙂
