New Ultrasound Pics

Its official….its definitely a girl. I had to go for a follow-up ultrasound because the last technician thought she saw cysts in the baby's brain. It turns out when I went for the follow-up ultrasound yesterday there were no cysts to be found, so either they are gone or were never there to begin with. This ultrasound technician sounded much more knowledgeable than the last one (she has been doing ultrasounds for 26 years!!!) and said without a doubt it looks like a girl, and circled the "girl parts" on the TV screen. She said to "keep the receipts" though, because they have been fooled before. The baby now weights 1 pound 1 ounce. I have gained 10 pounds since my last check up (4 weeks ago). The norm is 1 pound per week. I am way over….but as long as I don't do that every time I'll be ok. Its hard to believe but I actually start Maternity/Child Birth classes in the middle of September which is really nearly a little more than a month away. Rich is going to be my partner of course…so this should be interesting. Without further a-do…here are more ultrasound pictures (at 21 weeks)

The first picture is an extreme closeup shot of the head/face. The second picture is a profile of the body, but she is turned on her side. She wasn't very photo-genic yesterday.

Preeeeeesenting….baby Davies….

Is it just me or does it look like it has a huge cranium….. I asked the ultrasound tech if she could tell what the sex is and she said she could guess, but that the guess wouldn't be 100% accurate. She looked between the babies legs and didn't see any "external plumbing" so to speak and guessed a girl, but again couldn't give a 100% yes or no either way. I am sort of bummed about that. Rich is still in denial. He thinks it still could be a boy.

She doesn’t like the movies

Rich, Russell and I went to the movies last night and seen "I, Robot". It was an ok movie. Sci-Fi type movies are not usually my cup of tea. The best part of the movie was the baby going ape shit inside of me. From the time the previews were on until the closing credits the baby was doing kick flips in my belly. I don't think it liked the loud noise from the movies. I again tried to have Rich see if he could feel the kicks and he couldn't. I guess it is still real light to feel for other people. Not for me though, the little one feels like she is playing soccer with my internal organs!

1 Week….

One more short week until my ultrasound. I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't posted in a while mainly because I have been busy cleaning, working, sleeping and doing Ebay stuff (not necessarily in that order). I have been good and so has the baby….busy kicking the crap out of me when it feels like it. 😀 Don't get me wrong, I get thrilled when it does it. (Just in case I didn't sound too enthused…I am tired today) My Mom's birthday is Friday and I am giving her money. She wants to buy some kind of scanner thing that she can take with her to NASCAR races. I think the thing is dumb, but its what she wants, so she is going to use my money toward it. I really don't have too much to talk about right now. I will write more when I have something better to say.
