It’s a GIRL!!! I feel good to know I do have some of those motherly instincts already, even if it’s just a little :). I have had virtually zero justification but very early on thought this was a girl. I’m not sure if my last post confused things for people, it sure wasn’t meant to, I am VERY excited to be having a girl, I would be happy either way but this makes things SO much easier, which has been a surprise for me (I really thought a boy would be best). There is so much stuff that is just going to be better though, public bathroom supervision, Making cute cloths (I am NOT a shopper but there is lots of cute stuff I could make!), and connecting on a level that most boys just don’t seem to do. I already have a boy (Denny), now I’ll have a boy and girl! Besides, Denny is very partial to little girls especially, I think he still misses the little girls from the house he was born at.
The nurse zoomed through all of the visuals finding all of the critical pieces of anatomy she was looking for, things are developing just perfectly and MiniMiller zoomed all over the place throughout the whole thing! I already know she is a squiggler but it’s nice to have that confirmed visually too. She is very healthy and right on point for 19 weeks of development. The Dr. said she comes in at about 9 ounces and about 7 inches long, pretty typical beanie baby size, which is crazy. Her heartbeat is right between 140-150 beats per minute which is totally normal. All of her blood-flow is going the right way, she has all the parts she’s supposed to have, her head is about 4.5 centimeters wide. I have only gained a grand total of 3 pounds so far which is actually pretty good considering I just lost a whole bunch more than that from being stressed out, I was happy to make a come-back. Baby is not suffering at all from that thankfully and my diet seems to be back on track too. (Hoping that keeps up!)
Now the names begin, I have a few in mind for MiniMiller… The main ones being kicked around right now are: Lux, Hazel, Paisley, Lumen, Daisy, Amity, Lola, Rigby, Artimisha, and Page. I am certain this list will expand and contract over the next five months but that is where I am with the names since that is the #1 question people seem to have!
