Here is our newest son/daughter. The ultrasound technician said 16 weeks is a little early to tell the sex, but she thought it is a girl. And you know that they can never be 100 percent certain that it’s a girl.
So we’ll probably start referring to her as “she” and “her” just so we don’t have to say “it” anymore and be flexible if we’re later proved wrong.
Isabella and I were in the room during the exam, but Isabella could only see blobs on the screen. On the other hand I thought the pictures were even clearer than in Bella’s exams. We saw hands and feet and femurs and heartbeat and spine and the brain and placenta and umbilical cord and all the rest. Everything is just fine, the baby weighs about 6 ounces and the tiny head is about 3.5 centimeters across. We’re steady and on track for a delivery date about February 28.
And the debate over baby names goes on…
