A long awaited announcement .....
Look at that perfect profile!! This was a long awaited ultrasound. Since Mama is 35, the baby is at greater risk of having Down Syndrome. The baby shows no physical signs of DS and the blood test shows the risk is 1 in 6000+. This is a great number!!!
The baby was settled in right below my belly button so we had a hard time getting a good picture. But that gave me plenty of time to see the rest of the baby. We could see the arm bones and leg bones. It's little spine and ribs. It's teeny, tiny heart beating away. The baby's heart is the size of a nickel at this point. That just amazes me!
The baby kept interrupting the recording of it's heart beat by kicking and punching. Each time the baby would kick you'd hear a big static like bang. It made me laugh because I could feel most of it. It was like the baby was kicking the ultrasound wand.
yes, we finally found out the sex of the baby.
We are very excited! Now we need to think about a GIRL name. We need to think about ALL THINGS GIRL! So exciting. It is so nice to finally know.
Don't leave without suggesting a girl name.... or six!!
