It's A . . .

We left around 9:45am Tuesday. We got the office a few minutes early, made a payment and were taken back to the ultrasound room a short minutes later. It was a different ultrasound tech than we had for our NT Scan.

I was nervous. We told her that we would like to know the gender, but to seal it up in an envelope. Right away, she spotted the heartbeat. During the ultrasound, we saw the heart and all of its chambers, the baby's arms, legs, fingers and toes. She measured several things including the femur, abdomen and head. Everything measured well. The baby weighed approximately 11oz. Right on target. At one point, we could see the baby opening and close their mouth. She checked the nasal bone and lips. All checked out. She even let us listen to the heartbeat. It was 146bpm. The experience was amazing!

She gave us three pictures. Told us to look away so that she could print the gender picture and she sealed it up.

We then had our 20 week appointment. After completing the basics, I was seen by the doctor. He asked if we had questions. Gave me refill for my Z.ofran. And felt around on my belly. He used the doppler, so we got to hear the heartbeat again! The nurse drew blood to check my TSH.

Our next appointment is 5.16.11 for our 24 week check up.

We then headed to R.ed R.obin for lunch. After ordering and feeding Baby C, we decided it was time.

DH wanted to open the envelope and then tell me. (I heard Baby C's gender first since I was the one talking to the SW when we got THE CALL!)

We are blessed!

Congrats on baby girl #2!! I am so close with my sister and actually feel kind of sad that my daughter won't have a sister (we are done, done, done with having kids:)!). Anyway, your daughters will be so close. How sweet!
