It's A Girl!!

I had my ultrasound today, and much to our surprise, we are having another girl. I don't know why it should seem a surprise because I am not one that feels like I really know what sex my baby is going to be. Some people say they can tell, but I don't really believe it. The most convincing person who thought we were going to have a boy is Jeromy's grandmother. She has been right with Bennett and Rachel. We didn't find out Rachel's gender, but Grandma Lee made her a pink blanket because she was sure it would be a girl, and she was right.

Here's our little girl's blog debut

It was nice seeing the baby and hearing that everything necessary, like the heart and brain, were formed perfectly and in the right places. I was thinking the baby was a boy because there has been some karate going on in my womb lately. Even at my last midwife appointment, on Tuesday, she had a hard time finding the heartbeat, but kept hearing kicks and punches, and I could feel the baby rolling around. It took her a good 10 minutes to find it.

Her two little feet. (Actually being my daughter, here are her two big feet!)

Oh yeah, there is only one baby in there (sorry Liz, you'll have to have the twins!) My due date is right on as well. September 15, so we will have to pray the baby is at least one day early or late, so my midwife will be in town. (She has her niece's wedding to go to 3 hours away on my due date!)

Jeromy asked the nurse how sure she was that it is a girl, and she says that she will only give about a 90% probability, but she is definitely 90% sure. She said, "It's a girl," within the first 5 seconds of looking at the baby. She was very cooperative and in a good position to tell. We also could see our little girl punching, kicking and rolling around while we were watching. I was sad for Bennett to not get a brother, but it seems like this little girl will give him a run for his money, and God knows what he is doing.

The other piece of good news is that we got an offer on our house this morning. Only one day on the market and we have already received an offer. I will post more on that later when I have more info, but yay, what a good day. Yesterday was Bennett's 4th birthday, so I have lots to post about that. Now, I just need some time and I will get it all on the computer. More soon, I promise.

Hooray for little girls! Congrats. Looking forward to seeing more about Bennett's bday (little kids and birthdays are the best.)

Yeah! Rachel is going to love being a big sister to your new munchkin. Well, I have to admit I was a little bit surprised to hear that there was only one little one in there, but I know you are relieved! :)
Love ya,
