Little Fuzz Head

We had our final ultrasound this last Thursday.  It was so exciting to see our little girl!  She is still a girl!!!  We had the tech make sure and he said with his strong French accent, “Steel a gurrl.”  Phew!  We have so many girl clothes that I was worried she would turn out a he!  Everything looked great and the tech said she was healthy!   She is in her head down position, which explains the hard bump I feel above my belly button (her booty) and the legs that like to rub against my ribs and give me difficulty breathing.

She is averaging normal (50th percentile) in everything except two things.  Her legs are in the 90th percentile!  And her abdomen is a bit small, but the doctor said that was fine.   She is going to be a tall one we think!  The doctor measured her weight at 2.1 kilos, which is 4.6 pounds and he said she would be around 3 kilos (6.6 pounds) when she is born!  I am just HOPING that she is that small (for reasons I don’t think I need to state here).   

One other funny thing is the tech pointed out some weird fuzziness/blurriness on the back of her head.  It was her hair and she had it JUST right there, on the back of her head, none on top!  What a weird little hairstyle.  I will have to work with that.  My mom says she has two months to grow some more.  Actually, she only has 7 1/2 weeks left till her American due date!  I can’t wait to see her in real life and not just on a screen that is all blurry!

    If it did turn out to be a he, you could have sent the girl clothes our way (as our ultrasound confirmed last week).

    Woo hoo! LIttle playmates at Staff Conferences to come!
