So, we had our anatomy scan yesterday. And it went well! Seemed like everything that was supposed to be there, was… and nothing that wasn’t supposed to be there, wasn’t. 😉 Baby’s heart is about the size of a pencil eraser, but we could still see 4 distinct chambers! This was a particular concern of mine, because I know two special heart babies (and their amazing mamas ❤ ).
Anyway, after a while and a ton of pictures, the tech had me get up to pee and move around to get some better angles of baby, and find out the sex! Here it is:
I’m not going to lie, I feel a little weird about posting this money shot pic of our little girl. Buuuuut… oh well. 🙂
We are so super excited about her! We can do more in the nursery! And register for things!! Girl-specific things!
And if anyone asks, her name will be Princess Leia. 😛
Here’s a cute profile pic:
And, finally, I might be willing to post a bump picture. *gasp* But, I also feel weird about posting my whole self on here, so here’s a headless bump pic. 😛
Looks like my tummy is finally starting to round out. It still kind of feels/looks like two separate bumps, the bottom half is baby, the top half is the fat baby pushed up. But it’s getting closer to a single bump. 😉
And finally, here’s our Facebook reveal picture:
“Trumpet the Elephant is Beary Excited to announce that it’s a …”
I’m glad the scan yesterday went well. I think we were both slightly hoping for a girl. (Not that we would’ve been disappointed with a boy, just saying!) And most importantly, we’re happy she looks healthy! 😀 And she’s not even born yet, and I know she has her daddy wrapped around her little finger!
We needed some good news. It’s been a really rough week for both of us. I may talk about it more later, I may not. For now I’ll just say that there are some things that both he and I have things to work on — separately, and together. But we are, working on things that is, and I think we’ll be stronger in the end because of it. ❤
