The Anatomy Ultrasound

After our last ultrasound (early December), we decided to ask our mom’s to join us for the BIG one, the one everyone asks about. Once we had an appointment, we told each of them we’d like them to join us and of course they said yes. With a little rearranging of Frank and Randy’s winter move south, they were both here.

Randy came into town Friday and we had a great weekend packed full of eating, shopping, registering for baby stuff, eating, more shopping, going to the final Bronco game of the season, eating, happy hour with Stony Creek Friends and fiiiiiiiinaly, the ultrasound on Tuesday morning.

I had a full bladder as I followed the directions, which were to drink 1 quart of liquids before my appointment. Part of the ultrasound was with a full bladder and the rest was much more comfortable. The ultrasound tech moved all around showing us all limbs, fingers and toes, head, spine, ribs, etc. Finally she said there is a great picture of the bottom and there we have it….It’s a GIRL!!!!

There were so many thoughts, wives tales about what I was eating or craving. My mom and Kyle had said all along it was a girl, and sure enough, they were right. I really didn’t have any idea. We are very excited and for whatever reason it makes it feel so real now that we know the sex.

I already know the next question, which is after the first two most popular questions:
1. “How are you feeling?”
2. “What are you having?”
3. “What are you going to name her?” “Do you have any names?”

The answer to number three is yes, we have a name. The second part to the answer is that we aren’t telling until she makes her appearance in May. We are both so excited and now I can’t wait to start getting the nursery ready. Yeah for pink, bows, dresses and all the girly stuff…

Baby Girl Sonneman...we may have a thumb sucker!

How exciting! It really does seem more real once you find out the sex and I have no idea why. Have you felt her move yet? That was when it REALLY sunk in for me. Have fun shopping for baby girl stuff.

Yay for a baby girl! They are sooooo much fun to shop for (I now fully appreciate that since I have one of each)! Congrats!
