Aaaaaahhhh!!! This was a total shock, all of my instincts were dead wrong.
More updates to come as soon as I can get pictures scanned, uploaded, etc.
Ok, so the ultrasound tech is kind of a sadist, because she seriously checked every single part of the baby before finally getting around to the gender. “Yes yes, the head measures perfectly, that’s great. And the heartbeat is right in the middle of the range where it should be, fantastic.” By the time she was checking the baby’s kidneys, I was ready to scream, “Will you get on with it already?!?!!!”
But, once she got a good angle with the ultrasound, our little girl full-on mooned us, so we are 99.9% sure that she is, most definitely, female. I’m afraid that she gets her complete lack of modesty from my side of the family.
Other stuff: I’ve only gained 10 pounds so far, so I’m quite pleased with that. The baby appears to be perfectly healthy (and a girl! Aaahhh!!), so that’s fantastic.
What else is there to say? I’m kind of in shock. I think I need to go eat something.
And now, let the shopping spree commence!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BABY GIRL!!!! I’M SO EXCITED!
I was sure mine was a boy, too, and then, well, you know, those premonitions have a 50% chance of being correct, eh?

I didn’t actually quite know which part of Baby Poobou was which, to be honest, until I looked at the sonogram photo in flickr and could read your comments. When I looked at the enlarged file of all that gray fuzzy goodness and realized she’s looking RIGHT at us, all leaning on her elbow in which seems to me to be a smily way, I got goosebumps.
Yeah, I know. None of the ultrasound photos turned out very clear because she was a total wiggle-worm. That was probably the best one we got, but I love how she’s lying on her arm just like I do when I sleep at night.
