We're having a girl!!!! Wow. We had our big ultrasound on Monday (I was 18 weeks 4 days, today I hit the 19th week, holy cow!!) and everything went really well. Healthy was what we were after, and so far it seems like she's doing great. It was so neat to see all the body parts (such a change from the blob we saw at the last ultrasound)..we saw her heart with all 4 chambers beating, the stomach and kidneys, the brain, spine (so cool!), leg and arm bones, feet. The only thing we didn't see was anything between the legs...hee, hee.
We were totally surprised, we thought it was a boy this whole time for some reason. We're so excited!! It feels so different now, way more real, especially when you can refer to "it" now as "she" or "her". Crazy!!! Now we gotta get a move on...we were cautiously optimistic up until now, but more and more it seems like we might really be parents come September! Aaaaahhhhhhhh!!! We can't wait:)
If you have kids, did you find out the sex? or wait it out for the big surprise? Why did you decide that way?
