The verdict is in...

So we broke down and decided to pay for an ultrasound out-of-pocket to find out the gender of our baby moose.  We made it into a family event and had my parents and sister come along to hear the news.  Of course our technician was in training so it took a little bit of time for her to find the sex.  It was so fun to see our little one for the first time, especially since we have been waiting for our insurance to kick in for so long.  It was tough there for awhile not being able to see how she was progressing at normal intervals like most people get to do.  

So without further delay, our little one is...

A girl!!!  Yay!  If you look where the arrow is pointing in the picture, just above you will see 3 little lines.  Those lines indicate a girl.  Crazy, huh?  

This next one is a pic of our little girl just hanging out.  It wasn't the best one the technician had captured, or even the most clear, but it is still the very first picture we have of her, so I love it!  

Now I just need to get my doctor's appointment scheduled with my new insurance and I will get to see her again!  I can't wait to have this going in regular intervals.  

I will be 21 weeks tomorrow and I am still feeling great.  I feel like my stomach is ready to start growing any day now, but if I take a picture it still looks the same.  Here are the pics I had Pat take every other Friday starting week 14.  Technically they are on week 14, day 3; but who needs that?

Oops...that was Pat posing so I could get the camera ready for him =)  Here are the real pics.

14 weeks
16 weeks
18 weeks
20 weeks
I think 20 weeks is where it finally actually looks like some more growth.  The earlier ones I think are more just my stomach pushed out from the baby inside.  

If my belly pops, I plan to take weekly pics, but until then I will keep up the every other week.  We shall see!
