G is for gummy

And G is for girl.

We had the growth scan/biophysical profile on Wednesday morning and although gummy wasn't all that cooperative, the tech said she was 80% sure gummy is a girl. Although people keep telling me they think it's a boy, I had been thinking for some weeks now that gummy is indeed of the XX chromosomal variety. Boy fetuses kick a lot more than this wee little lady. Just an article I remembered from grad school (and of course I remember the author's name - why is all this info kept so diligently in my memory stores? je ne sais pas).

I am thrilled beyond words. A girl. A GIRL.

To be sure, I would be singing the same tune if the tech had said we are having a boy.

I guess finding out the sex of the baby isn't so much about the sex itself. For me, it's that it makes it all the more real. There is a baby in my belly, and it is a baby girl. And she is arriving about 9 weeks from now.

This is so amazing.

  3. Oh, yay!!!!

    Having had both girl and boy fetuses, though, I can say the boys don't necessarily kick more. Mine was pretty docile...and really rambunctious out in the world!

  7. congratulations darling augusta!! A sweet delicious baby girl - such a gift.
    I totally agree with your comments about finding out the sex, just another piece of the puzzle to make it less fuzzy and more real. Funny you should say that boys kick more because the boy we have growing is SO active.
    I'm beyond pleased for you to be sharing this journey with you, every day is a gift isnt it? And you only have 9 weeks to go!!!! Go momma!

  13. A GIRL! A GIRL! Oh darling, a daughter is a wonderful thing. *weeeeeeps*

    I confess I guessed that Egghunt was having a girl and you were having a boy, so I am super sucky at the guessing game.

    Thank you for the updated photos (stylish bedroom! I love your taste!). It brings me no end of joy to know there's a sweet girl fetus inside that beautiful bump.
