Yesterday about 1:15 in the afternoon I had my Anatomy Scan. This is the Ultrasound that most people (if baby is cooperating) get a peak at the goods and find out the gender. As most who read my blog know, I have 3 wonderful boys that I love more than anything in this world. We have a bond that can’t be explained (there is just something about the way a son loves him Mom). Although I love my 3boys, I have ALWAYS wanted a little girl. My mom passed away when I was only 2-years-old. I never experienced the Mother/Daughter bond that I always saw with all my friends. I have always craved it, especially after I started having children of my own. Anyway, yesterday we found out that our little bun in the oven is most definitely a GIRL!!!
As a seasoned mom I have had my fair share of ultrasounds. I am part of a mommy group that shares their ultrasound pics, so I know what to look for as far as what a boy or girl looks like. I have been praying for several months now that we would have a healthy baby regardless of gender. I have also been praying that during this anatomy ultrasound my little bundle of joy would give me the money shot! And money shot she gave. The Doctor put the wand on my belly for a split second and pulled it away to adjust something. I looked at her and with a shaky voiced asked her if she already knew what it was and she said yes. I told her I was certain I knew too. I said it is a girl and she said yes and put the wand back on my tummy. the exact same shot came up and the Doctor said you definitely have yourself a little girl there. Nothing could make a penis fall out of that! LOL
I immediately started bawling and my heart started racing 100 mph I was so stinking excited!!!! The Doctor was able to get all the information she needed in the scan, although my sweet little girl did not want to show her face or profile. We got some sweet pictures just not any really great profile shots which I said was totally fine by me. I had been blessed with the shot of my dreams and I couldn’t be happier!!
All in all everything is well. Next week I have to start taking progesterone shots once per month due to my preterm labor history (NOT looking forward to that). I will have a monthly ultrasound (REALLY looking forward to that) to check baby, cervix and placement of placenta. My placenta is closer to my cervix than they like at this time, but they said that can change.
I have decided not to post that special shot of the goods but I will show you the best profile pic we were able to get.
She has her hand by her face I am so in LOVE!!!
This is me at 19 weeks…
And this is the damage we did shopping for her. I could not wait to buy pink!!!
Do you see those adorable giraffe print shoes??? I think hubby thought I was having a heart attack when I found those!
I think Mommy needs some giraffe print shoes too
