We had our big ultrasound this morning. The tech was really nice and talkative and was pointing everything out from the beginning. She even let us stop about 15 min in because I just couldn't take it anymore and really had to pee. LOL
Anyways, my dates based on LMP put us at 20 weeks today, baby is measuring about a week behind and is laying breech right now. But, everything looks great. We got to see all four chambers of the heart which was beating at 136bpm, and the entire spine which I think is just the coolest thing to see when it's that clear. Anyways, baby did show the goods. Actually as soon as she started the ultrasound we saw and then a few min after she started again after I used the washroom we saw again and then after she got all of her pictures and measurements she went back and said i've seen a couple of times but I just wanted to be sure and see a really clear shot before pointing anything out or saying anything but...

We have a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
EEK, we're having a girl! What do I do with a girl? Haha After raising my 13 year old step son and having our 6 year old son together, we are in a whole new ballpark with this one.
After the ultrasound, we met my parents and a very close family friend for lunch and we asked the waitress to use only pink straws in our drinks(that we brought) and waited to see how long it took. My dad got it right away and had a huge smile on his face and goes...I know. Drove my mom nuts until she really started looking around and went to take a drink and stopped for a second and then looked at the rest of our drinks and it finally dawned on her. So yeah...thats my update..err...book! Smile
