Are you eating??

This is what the NP said to me today upon learning that I've dropped another 2lbs in weight. I wanted to say, "No, I've been starving myself and my baby" but I just looked at her and said, of course. While my weight loss isn't of any huge concern (remember, I'm a plus size gal to start with) I was still taken aback when she asked this.

So anyway, had our ultrasound as well. We got to see baby's kidneys, stomach, brain, arm and leg bones, and spine. We did see baby's heart, but not all 4 chambers, it seems she was in a bad position. Yes, I said she. It appears with 90% certainty that Lucky is a little girl. The tech said because of her position, she couldn't get a "clear shot", but that she's 90% sure it's a girl. We get to go back in 4 weeks for another ultrasound because the tech couldn't get the picture of all 4 heart chambers, so we'll be able to confirm then.

I have a few pictures, but they aren't that great since baby wasn't cooperating. I swear I felt her flip over while we were in the waiting room. I'll post them as soon as I have a chance to scan them.

Everyone please have a safe and Happy New Year!

Yay! Congrats! Must have been wonderful to see your little girl - and learn that she's a little girl. That's awesome news. Hope she cooperates for a heart shot soon : )

Really a girl??? Wow, I was off...Not that it matters. I can't wait to see the pictures...but I bet you can't wait to see her again! Then meet her! Does it feel REALLY real now that you know her gender???
