It's a.....

GIRL!!!!
Here are some pictures from today--the day we found out we are having a daughter. The day she is 19 weeks old.
This is her foot: (See it there? Right in the middle? We already know she has five toes and five fingers. We saw them today. Of course, I'm sure I'll still count them once she joins us in the outside world.)
And in this picture- this is where you see that she is a little girl. It doesn't look like much, but it's her little bottom-to the left (and her legs are to the right) and then the three itty-bitty blobbish lines to the left of the + sign are the female parts:

And here is another picture- she was moving to suck her thumb here:
Everything was measured--and I do mean everything....her bones, her organs, her head.....They checked to be sure that everything was where it was supposed to be and that there were no genetic defects or chromosomal problems and that everything was developing properly. And everything was. We really did create a miracle......
