Ladies and Gentlemen, it's a....

Obviously, my spidey sense is awful.

Yep, another girl! It was really obvious. About two seconds into the ultrasound, the technician flashed on that region and in my head I went, "that's girl bits!" Apparently Tim noticed it too. Later she again showed us a shot from the same angle of the legs and, once again, I saw no evidence of boy parts. She didn't tell us for another half hour, though, that it was a girl. Although Tim (and I also), thought she used "her" and "she" a couple of times.

So Stella's going to have a sister! I was really in shock and I am still adjusting to it being a girl. I was SO sure that it was a boy. Ha, shows what I know! So now we have to come up with a girl name, we had a really awesome boy name, but it will have to be retired, at least for now!

Some great face shots from the 3-D ultrasound, which they didn't have when I was pregnant with Stella:

She kept opening and closing her mouth (it's open in the above pictures), and trying to squirm away from the ultrasound. It was so cute! It's like she was shy, "get away, I'm trying to sleep folks!" She already hates the papparazzi. She didn't cooperate with the tech at all, who kept trying to get a certain angle of her spine, but no matter how much poking and prodding she did, or how much moving I did, Baby Girl wasn't budging off her back. The cup of coffee hadn't helped either. She's 12.5 oz, has a "textbook" heart (in the dr's words), and a heart rate of 158. Everything's there and perfect!

Now we just have to come up with a girl name, nothing appeals to me!

In other news, a kid in Stella's class has the chicken pox. I called my OB and left a message with the nurse because the teacher said I needed to. Hopefully everything will be fine. Stella has been vaccinated and hasn't even been to school in a week and I had it when I was a kid.

I'll leave you with some profile shots. Such a cutie!
