It's a Girl!!!

Time to break out the box of baby girl clothes and see what we can use from all that we have accumulated so far!

Our ultrasound today looked great, baby moving around a bunch, and everything measuring normal. She had her feet up practically in her face most of the time!

These are actually the worst quality ultrasound photos we have ever had as far as clarity goes... they just aren't all that clear. With Cecilia. we have a perfect little profile shot with her sucking her thumb. I assumed that ultrasound technology would just improve with each baby I have, as Cecilia's was clearer than Caroline's... maybe it is because this ultrasound was done a week or two earlier than the others were in the past? But the important thing is that they could see what needed to be seen. Baby has kidneys and a stomach, a brain, all that important stuff.

When we were telling the girls about the ultrasound a week or so ago, Caroline asked, "How do they tell if it is a girl or a boy? Can they see the long hair if it's a girl?" Hee hee... still not clear on that since they don't have a brother to notice differences in anatomy! Well, I instantly saw what tells us it is a girl as soon as the sonographer positioned the thing in just the right spot. Even if they aren't the clearest ultrasound photos ever, this was pretty clear to me:

And feet - she has feet. See?

YAY! Congrats!
We had a similar discussion a while back even though Katie has a brother!
It was before our own number 3. Katie asked if they know it's a girl because of the eyelashes. ha ha.

Congratulations! That's such exciting news. I love the picture where you got to see her feet. It took three U/S with our second daughter before we got to see feet. She kept digging them into the placenta. Have fun breaking out all those cute baby girl clothes.

Congratulations, Erin! I am very happy for all of you. And, lol, on the "how can they tell" question. Our youngest son, no matter how hard we tried, was a bit of an exhibitionist, so our daughter has seen first hand the differences between the sexes, lol! :-)))

LOL, Carrie, on the eyelashes, and Lisa, about your kids learning the differences! Maybe I'll have to get them a boy baby doll or something, ha ha, or point out some baby boys getting their diapers changed at our LLL meetings! One mom said that her 2 year old daughter, who has a big sister, noticed her changing the third's diaper - a boy - and that she got a horrified expression on her face and just pointed and said, "Uh, oh, Mommy! Uh, oh!" Like, hey, something isn't right there! Ha ha.
