Genitalia

Rachel here. We had our big ultrasound this evening. After FINALLY getting into the tech's office (1.5 hours late... but we did manage to head to dinner during that time, so it wasn't that bad), we got a GREAT peek at our little Baby Boo. Everything seemed to check out fine from what I can gather... you know how those techs are. There is a slight concern though with the baby's umbilical cord. The tech couldn't see it. Hmmmm... He needed to be able to see the cord in order to find the main blood vessels... or whatever it is they look for, and he simply couldn't find it. He said it can mean many things... some not so great things... and that he just couldn't see it. Basically he thinks the cord was wrapped around in the front of the baby's belly... like a belt. He didn't seem to think there was too much cause for concern, but we DEFINITELY needed to bring it up to our dr. upon the next visit (and probably face another ultrasound)... which isn't for another 5ish weeks... so until then I guess we just hang out????

So anyway... here is our official picture of Baby Boo. At the top of the photo is the left leg... and directly underneath it is the right leg. In the middle... we are sooooooooooooooooooooo LACKING a penis! :) Bryan is in slight denial where as the girls and I are thrilled! Now to come up with a name!And for the record... the angle of the dangle test... SO SPOT ON! :)

I found your blog through a friend of one of your friends and really enjoy it. I have never commented, but I was so excited to see your post today. As a mommy of three girls, I too was thrilled to find out our third was a girl and don't feel like I am missing out on anything. Welcome to the club!

Thanks!!!! We're SUPER excited! Once we had our second girl, I knew when we chose to have a third if it stood any chance in this house it needed to be a girl! :) Who's the friend?

My friend is Carrie, and her friend is Meredith. I originally found Meredith through Carrie because of the Tech connection (we are a Hokie family too), and then I saw yours. I am addicted to reading blogs! Yours is so fun to read, I am constantly amazed by your creativity :)
