Yes, we now know that you are a girl and we are over the moon!!
How WONDERFUL it will be to have a little girl in our family. When Mark phoned to tell me, I got
Your mom and dad came to have dinner with us
and showed us the video of the scan. Emily, it was amazing to see you moving about, touching your face with a little hand, to see and hear your heartbeat. The video lasts almost 10 minutes. The radiographer measured your skull and estimated that you are 22 weeks (23 weeks into the pregnancy) and weigh about 470g. She also highlighted a femur and measured it. It was a perfect femur - straight and strong looking. So far there is no sign of OI and we are all so thrilled about that. And then she drew a line and wrote ITS A GIRL and we all laughed and hugged each other.
Your Mom still has a cold and is blowing her nose and coughing. You must wonder what all the barking and tummy jerks are all about!
You stay safe and warm where you are and in about 4 months time we will be here waiting for you!
Stay safe little one.
