We were very happy to have a good anatomy scan last week, and while we may have forgotten to take a belly photo, we got even better – our first glimpse of baby.
We were both a little surprised at first when the technician told us it looked like we were having a girl. At first she wasn’t entirely sure, but after getting several different looks, it would seem we are definitely having a girl. I had pictured us with two boys, and I think Josh had the same picture in mind, but as the day went on, I found myself getting more excited about a little girl. Considering Enzo takes after his dad his so much perhaps our little girl will be a more quiet bookworm like her mama. They even act different in the womb – Enzo was constantly kicking and trying to spread out, whereas this little girl was wiggly, but kept curled up in a little ball during the scan.
Most importantly, everything looked good and she seems healthy. I do have to go back for a 36 week ultrasound, however, because as with Enzo I currently have marginal Placenta Previa, but also as with Enzo, I expect the placenta to move on its own and I’m sure all will be well.
In honor of finding out we’ll be doing a little more shopping than expected, I bought our girl her first outfit.
My Grandma used to call me Mouse when I was little, so I thought this outfit was perfect when I saw it. Plus, while we know it’s a girl, we kind of like yellows and greens and violets rather than too much pink, which I’m sure she’ll still have.
Can’t wait to meet you, Baby Girl!
