Mother's Intuition

1.11.2011

All throughout the pregnancy I've heard that mother's intuition regarding the sex of the baby is right a large percentage of the time. As you all know, I've been thinking boy the whole time.
Well- in our case, mother's intution was 100%.....

WRONG!!!

We are super excited to announce that we are having a sweet baby girl! The ultrasound went extremely well. For the first 30 minutes she was either sleeping or just being incredibly still. The tech and the doctor couldn't get a good shot of her face or determine the sex. Luckily, they were both awesome and knew that we had traveled a VERY long way for the ultrasound. They sent me down to the cafeteria to have a cup of coffee to see if we could get the baby moving. When we came back, we were finally able to get some good shots. Everything on our little princess was measuring perfectly- she has super long legs and everything else looks great. :)

Here are a few pictures:



And here is a short video showing her little face and her heart beating.

Of course, one of the most exciting parts about all of it is getting to choose a name for our little girl. Luckily, Jesse and I agreed right away. Her name will be:
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! I'll post again when we get home from vacation! :)

Beautiful name!
I thought our baby was a girl. I was 100% sure. And it's a boy. Sometimes I still think it's a girl, and maybe the ultrasound was wrong? But really who am I kidding. I need to wrap my brain around it!
