Gender Revealed!!!

This is actually a picture I took of the ultrasound picture.  I wanted to scan it, but we've moved our office to a different room and are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our scanner.
     Today's the day!  I'm still wrapping my head around it all.  Sleeping last night was, shall we say, less than joyful.  There were no nerves involved, but I kept waking up and felt uncomfortable most of the time.  I woke up about 6:45AM with a pretty bad headache and grabbed a ice pack to help ease the pain.  So the beginning of the day was not one to be envied.  My mind was consumed with thoughts of getting ready on time and making sure I drank enough water in order to have a full bladder for the ultrasound.  All of which was timed quite well.  I read that you are supposed to drink a full liter of water beforehand so I started about an hour before the appointment, guzzling as much at a time as I could.  My mom was able to come with us to the appointment, which was really special.  I'm so glad she was able to be there.  Thanks MOM!  :)

    I'm really glad I didn't start drinking water too early because I was just getting to the point of feeling like I needed to use the restroom by the time we got to the ultrasound room.  The warm jelly was kind of comforting, since it's starting to cool down outside.  I'm a fan.  Thank you inventor of the ultrasound jelly warmer guy!  The ultrasound tech began her poking and prodding, which I think is putting it lightly.  I was usually fine as long as she stayed in one place, but as soon as she would move and press into an area closer to my bladder the feeling that needed to get to the potty would return.  Seeing our sweet baby and the heart was magical for me.  It's so amazing that we are able to see the brain, skull, bones, developing organs and features.  Every time we were shown a new thing, I said, "That is so cool/amazing/awesome."  At some point I told the tech and her assistant that, "I'm sorry.  Right now, I just think everything's amazing!".

     And then came the moment I really had shown up for.  The reason I downed a liter of water in an hour.  The reason I had to fight of the urge to go to the bathroom.  Okay, so it wasn't the only reason, but it was a big one.  The Gender revealed.  She checked and double checked and I think she even triple checked just to be sure.

WE'RE HAVING A GIRL!!!

     Let the squealing commence.  :)  This means that 61% of you that voted were right on!  I really can't say that we would have been surprised either way.  We didn't want to expect or get our hopes up about either boy or girl and I'm glad.  I'm happy that this little girl (so weird to finally be able to say that) is joining our family.  From what we could tell, she's very healthy.  We'll see our midwife next week and she'll give us the results, which I'm expecting will be good.  At one point the tech used the 3D tool to get a good look at her face, but little miss was sucking on the back of her hand.  Or she was shielding her face because she didn't want to be seen without her makeup.  ;)  When we looked at her feet, I was pretty sure I could tell I was looking at a girl since I didn't see any "boy stuff", but I'm not the expert and waited for her to tell us.  When she did, she confirmed my thoughts and I looked over at Ty and said, "Are you ready for that?"  My mom's reaction was, "PMS, times two!"  Haha. 

    Names are on the discussion board for now, though we have told family what we are thinking.  When we decide more concretely, I'll share it with everyone.  And you will all like it.  Even if you don't, you will.  :)
