Survey says... it's a girl, we think

We just got back from our first ultrasound with the bean. As far as we could tell, and as much as the tech could tell us, everything looks like it's in the proper place and doing what it's supposed to. As for the baby's position, he or she is tucked in right by my bladder, which makes sense with how often I must visit the restroom these days. The tech tried for many minutes to coax the little one from its position near my bladder - needless to say, our child was having none of it. The tech said her best guess was that it was a girl, however, usually boys are much more stubborn than girls. I said, "Yes, but this will be my daughter." And Paul said, "You don't know my sister."

We are very happy to know that our baby, who weighed in at 10 ounces with a new due date of 9/22, is doing well. It was amazing to see "her" little face, she already has big eyes and pointed a finger at us like "I see you, leave me alone." All in all it has been a good morning, the best morning because we saw our first glimpse of our first kiddo. Hope you enjoy the photo - we did.

Photo Details: This front view of "Daisy" shows her eyes and head clearly visible. You can see her right arm propped behind her head with her left-arm just to the side of her left-eye. The torso and right leg, which is slightly curled up, are present just below her head. We call this her "karate kid" stance aka crane technique.
