A Near Miss

This week I realized that I totally forgot to go back by the OBYN's office to pick up my DVD of sonogram photos and video clips from our 20 week appointment. (Does this make me a negligent mother already?)

Since then, I've literally spent hours goo-goo-ing over the clips and photographs, already smitten with my little angel. (Angel now, of course, because I'm still able to catch all my winks and she's not out galavanting with boys....)

I even called my parents over to see them as soon as they could. That's when we noticed THIS picture.
Before you have a "Rachel from Friends moment," I know it's hard to tell... but that's her hiney, her legs, and .... UM....What is that THING between her legs????

Freaking out that my SHE is really a HE, we immediately sent the pictures to a sonographer friend. Of course I would be happy with a boy, but this mamma just needs to KNOW! And those of you who know me well can imagine what a tizzy I was in at the time.

Low and behold, sonographer friend saves the day. That THING is the umbilical cord. WHEW! She's still a girl. :)
Don't you just want to eat her up???? No? Just me? Oh, Okay.

I guess I'll just go back to watching her sweet little mouth moving and her arms and legs wiggling. Good thing the Bachelor's over and Oprah and Gossip Girl are showing repeats right now...



  1. Oh my word Stacey...that honestly made my mouth drop when I first saw the picture! Even Connor couldn't believe it...good to know all is still the same :)

  2. How lucky to have a sonographer friend! This could have been a game-changer...;)At least she was still human, when Tommy looked at our first sonogram of Owen he said, "Oh, it looks like a bunny!"

  3. Hi Stacey! I got your blog comment and popped over to read and return the favor! Congrats on your little still-a-lady. :) I'm glad to read you've been feeling great too. What week are you now? I'm officially 32 tomorrow. We had a second ultrasound to follow up on a few things and it is so sweet to see all their little parts - little hands and feet and ribs and hearts. They'll be here before we know it!

  4. Amy- I am 22 weeks! We will have another ultrasound in about 10 weeks, too, and I can't wait!!
