It's a girl!

We had our ultrasound on Monday to see if our baby was healthy and find out if we can be calling our belly a "she" or a "he"; I personally don't like calling it "it"! We were in Fresno and were able to get served by Michael's step-dad, James, at his radiology clinic! It was really nice and quick. I can't believe how skilled the tech was a following our little swimmer around and checking on all her organs and vitals. She is healthy and everything seems to be growing normally - yeah! It was really a cool experience to see her for the VERY FIRST TIME! My grandma, Michael's mom, Michael and my mom attended the "viewing". My mom kept commenting, "You really have a baby in there!" I guess, she is still in a bit of denial or shock.
This picture is for my brother, the chiropractor. How's her spine look, Brant? Not bad for only 17 weeks old!

This is the image that the tech used to determine she's a "she"! To interpret for those not familiar with reading ultrasounds, you are looking at her little butt and the bottom of her thighs (she's going to kill me for this when she's a teenager, huh?). If you look at the space where her two little legs meet, you will notice something (the male organ) is missing. You can even see the little slit right in the middle. She's definitely a she!

Here's a good profile shot. It was amazing how you could see the profile along with the spine and even the little heart pumping (it was like a flashing light in her chest).


  1. YAYYY!!!! I'm going to have a little girl cousin!!! Name her Bella, because she is going to be BEAUTIFUL!

  2. Hi my beautiful "ANGEL" I can't wait to hold you. I felt you in your Mommy's tummy, but can't wait till I hold you in person. I love you without even knowing you. I hope pink is your favorite color because it sure is mine. I hope you like shopping too. I love you, Grammy
