It's a Girl!

I had a rough morning - long story, but drinking tons of water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is not the most fun thing to do - but we finally made it to the ultrasound! I thought we'd be late, but we were actually just not early. :) Everything with baby looks normal and healthy (Praise the Lord!!!) although she wasn't too cooperative when it came to getting pictures of her lower spine and private parts! I had to move in a few different positions (including tilted with my head a lot lower than my feet!), and we did get a much better look, but not until the very end. It's exciting to start thinking about names now and planning her nursery decorations and all that good stuff! It also seems a little more real now that we've gotten to really see her - and find out she's a "her!" I can't imagine what another little girl will be like that's not Natalie, if that makes any sense. Most of the sisters I know are so different, so it will be really interesting to see how these two little girls differ - and how they are the same too! Soooo much to look forward to!

Here's her little face - she loved keeping her hands up beside it.
Her sweet profile! You can just barely see the tip of her little nose.
Here's her spine. She's actually laying on her tummy here. This is at the very end of our appointment.
Sweet little feet. She had them crossed at the ankles. Natalie was like this all the time as well!
