Yesterday we had our ultrasound where we could have found out the gender of Baby Boo. I know you want pictures (and don't tell me otherwise!) , but this is from Phil's phone, so it's not the best quality:
Anyway, that was the best shot...the baby looked so darn cute on the screen, moving around, trying to suck it's thumb. I love our ultrasound tech, she always just tells us about everything she's seeing, and lets us know how healthy and good the baby looks. I know some techs are scared to say anything before the doctor reviews the pics, but she's so laid back and works for our likewise laid back midwife.
The baby looks great, (s)he is only 9 ounces (which leads me to wonder why I've gained 12.4 pounds!?!) and is the perfect size for how far along I am. This miracle never gets old, I am so thrilled to see the baby inside of me every time! And to hear everything looks wonderful is truly a blessing. It's amazing how every single cell develops correctly and everything lines up to make a healthy baby. When you think of how easy it is for something to go wrong, it's an amazing gift to have a healthy baby.
I did try to sneak some peeks at the gender, and I think there definitely was something between the legs...but maybe that happens either way? I'm going to go with boy - I guess we'll have to wait until labor day to know for sure.
Oh, and I did ask why I wasn't feeling this baby move as early as the others, and she told me it's because the placenta is on top (near my belly button) so it's like extra padding for the baby to bump through. I should be able to feel more when (s)he is about a pound. I definitely saw the baby moving all around on the ultrasound, so it's all good!
