We are joining team......

So we went for our ultrasound today. I was surprised at how calm I was. The tech was really not that friendly and as soon as I laid down she told me that she would do the pics, talk to a doc then get my husband and then we could see. Then she did not say a word. That got me nervous....in my past when they are quiet it is a problem. She asked in a bit if I was OK because I was moving - my back hurt. I said yep but just nervous as she is not saying anything. She felt bad for making me nervous but said she can not multi task and do her job but not to worry it all looked great - whoo hoo!!! But they she said baby was not moving alot so she could not get some pics they needed...including the gender. She had me get up and move, pee and I even jumped up and down to get baby to wake up and move around. They did get all the important pics and they were happy with them but could not get the gender. I thought that the reason baby would not move its legs was because of our dilemma for sharing...this took away the dilemma. I was OK with not finding out...I was just so thrilled everything looked good and measured well. I forgot to ask what baby was measuring but the h/b was 148. So they got Kris in and she was showing us both everything and bam - baby moved it legs and it is a ....................GIRL!!!!!!!! I am beyond happy. I would have been very happy with either but I really wanted a girl as this is our last baby. Kris and I were thrilled...I just cried. We are one step closer!!! Her is the pic of the ultrasound and then me at 18 weeks.

I am so happy for you Melanie!! The baby is healthy and you will get your girl!!!! Congratulations on your daughter!!!

BTW: my tech is also the kind that doesn't let you see anything until she is done measuring....I think it's torture.
