Actually much much better. We had our big ultrasound today. And guess what??????????? Our baby has none of the markers for downs. Woot woot. The perinatal specialist told us that we shouldn't really worry about that anymore (not that we were). But it is nice to hear that from a doctor. Our baby has a normal and strong heart. Normal kidneys. Normal lips and nose. Five fingers on at least one hand (couldn't see the other). Oh yeah and did I mention that the baby also has a normal vagina!!!! IT'S A GIRL!!!!
We are so excited. We will tell our parents over the phone together. I didn't think it would be this thrilling. I can tell we are going to be over the moon for this little girl. She was soooo very uncooperative during the scan. The u/s tech had to keep poking and proding at my belly to get the baby to change positions. She was just about to tell us we were going to have to reschedule when the baby turned and showed us the goods. Just like mom, she waits until she really has to do something to do it. Both the tech and the doctor predicted girl so
Oh and here is my better version of her baby blanket. The cables are coming along beautifully.
