Our Baby - 11 weeks

Wohoo! I had my ultrasound today. I was so nervous. I really didn't want to get crappy news like last time. But it was ALL GOOD this time. We had the same ultrasound tech as the time before and she remembered us. She said she was sure I was going to get good news. Right away she found our baby and showed us. She was so good. I asked her about a million questions cuz I couldn't make out what I was looking at. The baby had a strong heartbeat at 167 bpm. So if the old wive's tale is true about high heart rates then it looks like we're having a girl. We'll see though. The ultrasound tech would show us how our baby would wiggle around if she poked my tummy. It was great. Ahhhh, I'm so excited!!

Can you see our baby? Ya it's hard for me to make out too. Hint: The head is on the left of the picture and the body on the right. It's a profile shot. (Click on it to make it bigger.)

I can totally see your little baby! SO CUTE! I'm so happy for you Ashlee!

What a great heartbeat! Oh! And that "Old Wives Tale" thing sooo didn't work for us! But I have heard that a lot of people like to do the chinese predictor thing. That didn't work for us either. LOL! But some people I know SWEAR by it! I can't wait to hear what you are having! SQUEEL! (shoot! Now you're making me baby hungry again. Stop it!)

Yay! I am so glad you got to see your baby! And really glad things are looking good and "she's" healthy in there :)
The "old wives tale" was correct with BOTH my kids. Carter was low and Hayley was high - consistently.
Are you guys going to find out what it is when you can? Or have it be a surprise? When is your next ultrasound?

I'm thrilled for you guys!!! Stratton was totally true with the heartbeat thing, so in that case, it looks like this one for us is going to be another boy! Can't wait to see some belly pics!
