The reveal.

2 May

When I found out I was pregnant, I made it pretty clear on this blog that I was hoping for a girl. Today, we discovered that my hopes are satisfied.  It is a girl.

…At least, the technician said she was 95% sure.  We may be surprised yet.  But the shot of the baby’s bottom (a perfect, gorgeous little rump, mind you) showed no dingaling between the legs.  So I’m calling her a girl.

Speaking of ultrasound images, I don’t have a scanner, so I won’t be able to show the actual pictures here for a while.  But – be honest – can you tell one sonogram apart from another anyway?  They’re all identical, so far as I’m concerned.  So, in the spirit of homogeneity, I’m posting other people’s sonograms instead of my own.  I don’t know these folks; they came to me via the magic of Google Images.  Let’s just pretend, shall we?

Here we have a profile shot of Seabass’ baby sister.  Beautiful scooped nose, eh?  Just like her mama.

This is one of those creepy 4D images.  Look at how Baby Sissy is laughing and saying “aw, shucks!”

When the ultrasound tech saw this shot (or, you know, one just like it) she said “Oh, what a beautiful face.”  Only a radiologist would say that because, let’s face it, this is creepy as all get out.  I’m giving birth to an alien skeleton.

And here’s the last shot which reveals that Baby Sissy has no junk between her knees.  Almost positive, anyway.

Whether boy or girl, what a wonderful way to spend a Wednesday morning: Jake, a very well-behaved Seabass and I sitting in a darkened room getting the first glimpse of a beautiful new family member.  It was lovely.

And now it’s time to think up a nickname…

Thanks to all the anonymous kids who unwillingly donated their sonograms for my use in this post.
