Girl! A healthy and impressively average girl! Jeramy and I are in shock and overwhelmingly happy. Here is the evidence of her girlness...or at least that is what the ultrasound tech told me as I couldn't figure out which lines represented those all important three lines of her reproductive organs. I fully plan on sharing this picture along with the obligatory bath and miscellaneous nude baby photos with her future boyfriends as part of a conspiracy to cause undue embarrassment for my future teenager.
My daughter displays impressive flexibility as she spent the bulk of her time with her foot in her hand. She must have inherited such skills from her Aunt Jaime, as I never could do so much as touch my toes. As a bonus this has scored me another peek at her in two weeks, since such posture does not allow for a good look at her spine. Otherwise she looked perfectly healthy and measured in the 55th percentile for her age at 14 oz. Her little heart was pumping away at a beat ranging from the upper 140's to lower 150's. We are scheduled to have a fetal echo done in a couple weeks because Jeramy's mother and sister both have heart problems. We are not overly concerned about this though as Jeramy had an echo in the past that showed no problems, and we believe this particular disorder requires a parent with the condition.
We have decided on a name, but the spelling is a bit up in the air. So maybe you all could weigh in. Which do you like better?
