The Dr. came in with a couple of residents, one of whom was running the ultrasound under his guidance. She found the same things the first nurse did, but then she got to a much clearer view of the baby's bottom. The Dr. asked her what she saw, and she said "That's a baby girl," and he said he very much agreed. Tam asked how sure he was, and he said "sure enough to start painting the walls pink." And aside from showing us that we've got little girl on the way, the utrasound showed that everything looks good.
Right after the appointment, we started calling family and friends to tell them, and then it was time to go out shopping to find some baby girl clothes. We had looked before, but had not bought anything yet. It's all very adorable, and I can tell we're going to be very broke. Tam made a beeline for an adorable pink tutu that she had seen a few weeks before, and now it's hanging in the closet in the soon-to-be nursery.
We're more excited than we can possibly say, and we can't wait to meet our little girl. We've got plenty of work to do in the next few months to get prepared. Check back to see our progress with the nursery!
