Chances Are...

So. We had another ultrasound today. It was so much better than our last experience, thanks to the Canadian Diagnostic Centre. And to Alyson and Mrs. Mmmmaaahvelous for their advice. Our technician was a lovely woman. It was exciting to see the wee babe again, and we were able to see a lot more than last time. Everything was better.
And it looks like chances are mostly, likely, quite possibly, it's a girl!!!

Now, I'd like to be able to say with more certainty, and the tech thought it was most certainly, but she suggested another viewing to confirm before we go painting anything pink. Is she crazy? What better story for a possible last minute switch? Sorry son, we thought you were a girl! And that closet full of dresses, you'll get used to it!

I don't know if we're really much better off than we were this morning. At least I think we can say our chances are up from 50/50....60/40? Let's go with 80/20!
In any case, we are excited to think that we are possibly having a daughter.
At the same time, throughout the exam, I kept thinking how amazing it was to see such a little tiny person. And how lucky we were to be able to see. And how beautiful and perfect.
Either way.

And because this is OUR child, and the first time we had ever had the option of a 4D image, the baby was curled up in a ball with 'her' chin down turned away from us, with 'her' feet over her head most of the time. So we have a lovely, complimentary(because they didn't charge us for such a minimal shot), 4D view of 'her' ear!
