good scan yesterday! w/pic!

Sorry I didn't update yesterday--it was a late appt and by the time I got back, it was dinner and crazy time of night. But...Good scan!! Of course I don't know the results of the test (NT scan) for a week, BUT the u/s showed a good size baby, right on target at 12 weeks 0 days!

Got a really cute picture--with arms and legs too!

So we took a picture of the u/s pic and sent an email out to a few close friends and our siblings, since we had only told our parents the news so far. We also told our kids last night and showed them the pictures. SOOO....the beans are spilled about our bean (or I guess at this point it is a lime! lol)

Oh, and the cutest thing? We told the kids last night and they all agreed that they want it to be a girl! LOL Well, the oldest 2 do...the youngest (almost 3) I don't think he was really knowing what was going on. My ds1 (7yo) said "I want it to be a girl...I want another sister, then we will have 2 boys and 2 girls!" LOVE IT! Hope you get your wish buddy! Cause that would be perfect!

We sent a mass email to siblings and close friends. We told parents a while ago, asking for their extra prayers for a healthy baby (they worked!). The email replies are trickling in Smile They are so excited. So far I have only had 2 replies from dh's siblings and 1 from mine. I'm glad my sister's response was positive--she struggle with infertility after her first, then finally had a 2nd baby, only to have a major mental breakdown which landed the kids in foster care. So to have her happy for us with NO comments about 'wish I was having another' or something--even said, I'm happy for you, you're a good mom. That was nice. We didn't want it on facebook yet because I feel it is so impersonal for those CLOSE friends and family to see it first on facebook--without even a personal note or call. So we'll probably put it up there "for the world" in a couple more weeks.

And about the clear picture--YES! It was such a good pic! The tech was so impressed baby was in the perfect position--she said "this NEVER happens! what a cooporative baby you have!" And I was even more surprised that the picture I took OF the print (didn't scan it) with my phone, and then emailed myself was so good! I had to take a few because the flash kept reflecting on the shiny picture paper. It still has a little flash spot under baby's back, but not bad. She gave me 2 other prints, but they were the baby's head and body, no arms or legs visible and were blurry.
