At the appointment when we found out the sex of the baby, my doctor told us he was 80-90% sure it was a girl. At my appointment yesterday we were told it was 100% a girl! I have to say, I don't think I would have been surprised if they told me they had made a mistake before and that it's really a boy! I am STILL in shock that it's a girl!
Here's a picture of our girl sucking her thumb...
My family and my friends know that I have been SOOOOO worried because I haven't been able to feel the baby kicking. I'm 21 weeks pregnant and I felt Kohen start kicking at around 18 weeks. This doctor appointment that I went to yesterday was at the hospital. They did a complete check up of the baby. I learned that the reason I haven't felt the baby is because I have what's called an "anterior placenta". So my placenta is in between my belly and the baby. So instead of it being belly then baby then placenta, it's belly-placenta-baby...
You can see in the ultrasound pictures below, the position of my placenta... (on the right side I highlighted it in pink so you could see it better). I compared this ultrasound picture with Kohen's ultrasound pics and my placenta was underneath him.
So no wonder why I can't feel her!!!! I will be able to feel her a little later in my pregnancy. I had been so worried about not feeling her kick that I thought she may not have legs and that might be the reason! Horrible...I know. I cried like a baby laying on that ultrasound table when I saw my baby was indeed alive, kicking and I could HEAR the heartbeat.
I also learned at my appointment that my baby girl is breech.
This isn't really a big deal to me since I'm having a c-section anyway :)
Look at this sweet face! She has her MOMMY'S nose :)
She's got her Daddy's long legs!
10 toes :)
On another note....
I've been shopping.... A LOT.
Going to Dallas and Kansas City two weekends in a row right after finding out we're having a girl called for TONS of shopping and lots of PINK!
Jason's mom bought our sweet girl this outfit, blanket, bunny and hair bow :)
I bought these teeny tiny bows. I thought they were so cute!
My friend Deanna gave our baby girl this sweet little hat and bow (and a ton of other bows) while we were visiting in KC.
I saw this pink dress and HAD to have it! I didn't even look at the price tag... that's how bad I wanted it!
Sweet little socks and bib from Christie and Natalie :) LOVE IT!
I think I bought 42 outfits/onesies in two weeks.... I know, I've lost it.
Kohen checking out all the pink...
I only bought 3 things with crabs on it... hehe... love me some crabs :)
Kohen's pink shirt he's going to wear to the hospital!
My friend Sasha gave me these two onsie's while I was in KC!
