Girl!


So the ultrasound went smoothly -- all the limbs and such were of the right number and in the right places. I had assumed that the tech would let us know the gender right when he figured it out. However, after the ultrasound, the tech left the room to get the guy who was going to do the amnio. When the tech returned, we had this little exchange:

Me: "Um, sooo, could you determine the gender?"
Lame-o ultrasound tech: "Oh, it was a girl." (spoken as "It was obvious to the trained eye. Couldn't you tell?" )
Me: "..."

Good news: everything checked out OK as far as they could tell. The actual amnio took only about 90 seconds. The needle was much smaller than we thought.

Can I also just say that I SO knew it would be a girl. I know everyone says things like that, but well- I really did think so. I even cast my vote accordingly!!!

So excited for you guys! We'll let you know next week if she'll have a girl or boy playmate! ;)

Annie, I'm so predicting boy for you.

J & C - odds for another redhead are 25%.

McRussels - yeah, Samantha told us this last weekend we'd be disowned if it was another boy! Phew! Dodged a bullet on that one.

My comment apparently did go through on Tuesday (superfluous commas and disappearing comments--what's going on these days???) but we are all so thrilled for you! Erin is going to be an amazing big sister and I cannot wait to see what color hair little sister has.
