Today I went to the midwife and had an ultrasound. The verdict is........they THINK it's a girl! She said it is still to early to be certain but she thought (and I thought too) that it looked like a girl! She made me an appointment to come back in two weeks for another ultrasound. Then she said she would feel more comfortable telling me what it is for sure. (okay! I realize you can never be sure but whatever!) So I'm super excited about that. The children loved seeing the baby. We could see everything! We could see the mouth opening and closing and the fingers and toes, the nose...even the lens of the eye! It was very cool.
After the appointment the children and I went to Olive Garden and Books-a-Million to celebrate. It was a fabulous day. The only thing that could have made it better was if Heath could have been there. I'm hoping he will be for my next ultrasound in two weeks.
