We had our 20-week ultrasound today. Here are the goods:
Thirty-nine pounds with the ultrasound wand later … and we’ve got the money shot…
(Oh, and we’re just going to have to believe the techies know what they’re pointing at)
Can you believe it?! It’s the shock of the century.
It’s not that I didn’t believe you guys … it’s just that given the Teter genetics and math, I was sort of assuming we were having a doode. I had not ventured very far down the ladyparts path in my mind.
A little Seth would be adorable and virtually headache-free to raise. But a little me? Yipes! We’re in for a world of hurt, kiddos. For the first 25 years or so, anyway.
Seth is very tickled, as he actually wanted a little lady, much to everyone’s surprise. I am very happy to have captured a rare female sperm, although I’m admittedly terrified at the thought of being a mom to a woman. I’m not sure I would have been less terrified if they had said, “Boy,” but seriously. Women are complicated machines. I barely understand myself at times.
Here’s to hoping she’s as even-keeled as her father, but that she inherits my stunning good looks and womanly physique…oh, crap.
And who will inherit all our land and oxen?
Worry not. Regardless of my nervousness, this baby has things under control. Her liver, kidneys, spine – everything is in working order, just like I asked. She’s measuring right on track if not a touch on the small side at 11 oz. She LOVES my bladder. When it came time to determine the sex, she had her legs crossed for several minutes even as the ultrasound tech was slapping my belly over and over with the ultrasound wand. Somehow, I managed not to wet the crinkly paper before she retreated under my belly button and gave us the money shot.
So she’s ladylike, which is a good sign. She could teach me a thing or two.
And I guess it’s kind of nice that she cooperated so perfectly with tentative blog theme for 2009: Ladyparts ATTACK.
Seth is officially outnumbered. Mwahahahahaha……..
Oh, and the blog poll. Nicely done, readers. You are the new wive’s tale.
……. I wonder if she’ll blog.
Oh, boy. I’m starting to warm to this girl idea.
Sorry, Mandy. I was really looking forward to our little blue Trendbusters. :’(
PS – I hate pink. Is this going to be a problem?
