So I went home w/ Alex and started drinking lots of water. Oy, the water!
Around 10, Biju left work and swung by to pick Alex and I up then we stopped by school to get Ajay. We got checked in and the sonographer quickly got us in. We got a good peek at the baby as she took some measurements. I loved seeing the baby's hand up to it's mouth. The sonographer took a good hard look to see if Baby was sucking it's thumb - she didn't think it was but it was awfully close.
5 Little Piggies on this foot~
Can you see the spine along the bottom of the pic? Then the femur, knee, shin bone, ankle, foot .....
The baby weighed in at around 12 ounces. Everything looked good and all the measurements were in the "normal" range, which was a comfort. We saw it squirming all over. Actually, when we first arrived, the head was up and a little to the left of my belly button. Awhile later, the head was down towards my right hip! The sonographer sent us home with a few video clips of the baby moving around, but I don't know how to edit out all of my personal information. If I can figure that out, I'll post it here so you all can see the little one dancing around.
Many of you are wondering if we got the "money shot" - Biju and I had been going back and forth, trying to decide if we were going to find out the gender or not. In the end, we decided to find out. We thought it would be nice to be prepared. Plus, we're not good at secrets. We are, however, going to keep it a secret from you for a little while longer. Don't worry, we won't make you wait until birth (I'm certain I would slip sometime between now and then anyhow!) but we are going to make you wait about a week - maybe less, because - I'm not good at secrets!!! What I want YOU to do is take part in our poll. Do you think we're having a boy or a girl? For added fun, leave a comment for us and let us know what you voted for!
