"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow."
James 1:17 NIV/NASB
We had an absolutely fantastic day at our ultrasound today! The results of the vote are that 66% percent of you thought it was a girl, and you were right! The good and perfect gift the Lord decided to bless us with is
A GIRL!!!Our awesome ultrasonographer, Judy, told us that she believed 100% it is a girl. She did Leanne and Sandy's ultrasounds as well when Ansley was born, and as of then (4 years ago) she had never been wrong once! And yes, that's our little one's bootie up there for all to see... hopefully it's the last time she'll be naked on the internet! :)
We got to spend about 15 or 20 minutes (or at least it felt that long, I wasn't exactly watching the clock!) just looking at our little one swim around and seeing how healthy she is. She weighs 11 ounces, and her heartbeat was a nice calm 153. We got to see her little feet and hands, and Judy measured the ventricles of her heart as we watched them beat. I even found out that the reason I haven't been feeling many kicks is because I have an anterior placenta, which just means the placenta is in front of the baby, between her and my belly. Basically it's like a little pillow protecting me from any hard kicks! We also agreed to join a trial study for UNC where they measure you to see if you are likely to go into pre-term labor. Judy measured me, and apparently Baby K will have a nice long path to travel (and that's supposed to be a good thing?). It is a little daunting to see how big the baby's head looks compared to the little tunnel she has to come out of. It's still hard to believe that in a little over 4 more months we will get to meet her!
