and the baby is....

indeterminable. After weeks of aniticipation, we got a maybe. Stubborn little thing! Neo moved all around, but seemed to always keep the valuables covered. We poked and shook it around a little, and we watched it turn over, but we couldn't get a really good shot. So basically, the doctor took a picture of the bum; he couldn't see any boy parts so he guessed that she's a girl. He said not to go out and buy lots of stuff though, which is exactly what I was planning on doing. The worst part of it is that we don't have another ultrasound for 3 months, so it looks like we'll be in the dark for awhile longer.
So while I'm disappointed about not being able to to rule out either sugar and spice or puppy dog tails, or narrow down bedding options and half the name possibilities, we did get to see some pretty amazing stuff. We watched the heartbeat and could see all 4 chambers. We saw the bladder, which means the kidneys are working. The bones are forming, so there was a spine, and knees, and thigh bones that we could make out. She weighs 14 ounces! It was amazing to watch her move and know which position she was in inside my belly. And overall, the fact that our baby is the healthy kind...I guess that's really what's important.

Man, what a bummer!!! You got me all worked up, though, when I saw the heading of your post. I am glad that your baby is health and hope 3 months doesn't feel forever away.

Maybe this is because we've been calling he/she "neo" for the past three months? if people kept calling me neo, I'd be irritable and uncooperative too.

That's a huge bummer. But I'm very glad you got to see your precious baby and congrats on he/she being healthy. Thanks for the update.

So... #1...you shouldn't call it a her when you don't know 100%...she could still be a he. #2...you should check out Stork Vision between now and the 3 months...hear some very good things and good results from them!!
