David and I were so excited to find out that Baby O is a girl! We will no longer be calling her "It". I hated that. I didn't believe it when the ultrasound tech said, "Looks like you're having a girl..." I had to hear it from Dr. Rosemond. The tech had seen some cord between her legs, but the doctor confirmed her! My Mom came along, and I am glad she was able to see. We have a great videotape of the ultrasound, and they took a 3-D picture of her.
She already has a name, but you have to wait until she is born to find out. David was sweet and gave me a card that said, "I knew it was going to be a girl!" when we got back to the car. I said, "How did you know?" Then it occured to me, "You bought two cards!" I reached into the map pocket behind my seat, and sure enough, there was the other. I was laughing so hard that I was crying. We went to TJ Maxx after the ultrasound, and I went a little crazy buying cute girl outfits. I just needed that connection with our baby's gender.
Last night, I think she knew she had really made her presence known, and she proceeded to do every form of modern dance possible in my belly. At 4 AM, I sat up starving and cracking up laughing. I ate a banana in our dark room, laughing the entire time. Poor David. Thank goodness we took a personal day today to go to the film festival downtown.
