Here is the promised picture. . .
If you look closely, you can see the little hand giving us a thumbs up. I think the baby is showing us how happy s/he is to be at the end of the first trimester.
And speaking of the s/he question, the ultrasound tech thought that she saw some boy bits. At the time, I didn't see what she was talking about, but my husband did. We took video of the ultrasound and when you review the footage, there is something down in the baby's nether regions, but I can't tell what it is. Deferring to the judgement of the more experienced technician, I guess that for now, our guess right now is as good as hers. But we are going to wait until the more definitive anatomy scan before we are painting the nursery blue.
As the title and the widget to the left proudly announce, we are entering the second trimester today. This is obviously a huge milestone for us and one that has me feeling a little more confident about this little one being born safe and sound late this summer.
