after seeing the pictures on the monitor I thought how in the world are you going to be able to tell ( this was a regular belly ultrasound) where as my last one was vaginally so you could see the baby more clear ( to us any ways) so after about 25 minutes of her taking the measurements and pointing out the things that I never thought I would call cute in my life like the spinal cord haha.. then she pointed out the bottom, the bely button, the eyes, hands and legs, and once we saw the feet were crossed it made for the cutes picture... but we thought we would be leaving there no knowing what we were having yet... she took more measurements and looked at the placenta and then she slowed down and zoomed in... and I kid you not there were two grey balls I was looking at... so i said, what is that!?!? ( expecting her to say congrats your having a little boy) now I thought these looked waaay to large to be what I thought they were, but she said that my little momma is what makes your baby a girl, and she pointed to these two little white dots ( never would have guessed thats how you tell a boy from a girl, and who knows what those grey ball thingy's were but at this moment it didn't matter anymore) I let out a sign scream kinda thing :) i was just so excited I pictured our little baby girl wearing a headband with a huge flower on one side :)
I looked at Daddy and he had a grin on his face and his eyes were watery... I rubbed his arm and remember thinking Our baby girl is going to be the luckiest little baby girl who is going to have a daddy that loves and cares for her so much, they will be best friends, and when it comes time to dating, she will hold the men she meets up to her father and if they aren't treating her with the amt of respect and love her father will give her then they don't stand a chance :) I truly feel blessed and overwhelmed with excitement and can't wait to meet our baby little baby Jada Grace.
oh and btw, the Dr. said she was measuring my due date to be January 9th... but that they wouldn't be changing my due date from january 1st... so take that as you wish but it doesn't look like we may be getting that tax deduction this year :)
