So, it's a.....

Girl! Or so was their educated guess at this point. It's still a little early to tell, I'm only 15 weeks and 3 days so they can't say for sure right now, but there definitely wasn't anything between those long legs of hers! The ultrasound tech let us watch our little one moving and squirming all over the place for almost a half an hour. It was such an amazing thing. I've never made it to this point in a pregnancy and it's just indescribable. All her measurements were right on track and everything looked great. We have another appointment in four weeks and an ultrasound to follow a couple weeks after that. We opted out of doing the testing for down syndrome and spina bifida because those tests give a lot of false positives and I don't want any unnecessary worries at this point. I've worried enough and don't want to add anything to the mix. I know this baby will be healthy and beautiful when she makes her appearance into this world. It's been a tough road, but we're almost half way there!
