{it'S a GirL!}
well-the majority of you were correct! today's ultrasound revealed with about 90% certainty that the little fetus in my belly is in fact a female one! i won't fully trust it till i see her in the flesh or by 3D ultrasound at 32 weeks. baby looks fine-although quite snug-she was folded in half with her little feet smackng her forehead. we're scheduled for another ultrasound in four weeks-the big 20 weeker-where we'll make sure all her organs are where they should be, etc., and that will give us another shot to verify her gender. her name, you ask? haven elizabeth anderson. and yes, she already has a blog!

{the proof}


profile: you can kind of see her little foot up across from her eyes
arm: sort of looks like a bony dog leg at this point. this shot really shows you how crunched up she is.



cute little feet (i think she got my high arches!)


and here's where there aren't any boy parts, leading us all to agree that she's a girl!

Congrats! Nash is going to be a great big brother! How's he adapting to the news? Has he caught on yet? Guess he has a few months to let it sink in!
And I love the name!

I knew it! That is SO wonderful!!! Congratulations Liz. I think Haven is a beautiful name.

buddens said...

Congratulations! Girls are so much fun! Lets be honest, especially dressing them ... but it's that and so much more! Love the name! And I was the same way with my daughter, and was paranoid that they were wrong about her gender for so long! I think that's just part of being pregnancy though, and worrying about absolutely everything...

Melissa D said...

There aren't many girls in our family so I'm super excited to meet Haven. And I really would like to meet Nash too!
