Drum roll, please . . .
Z Baby's a menina! We've got a girl!
We had another amazing ultrasound yesterday, and we were both grinning like donkeys eating briars the entire time we watched our little daughter on the screen. Everything measured and looked absolutely perfect (and those were the words of the doctor, not the mama, but I was already pretty certain my kid was perfect. She does have my genes after all. hehehe)
Head to hiney, she is 14 cm (5.5 in) long now, weighs in at roughly 100 gr (1/4 lb), and has a 10 cm (4 in) waist. Tall, thin, tiny little waist . . . taking after her mama some more here. ;)
And we apparently interrupted her daily calisthenics yesterday. She was quite the busy little thing stretching her legs all the way out and curling them back up against her chest/stretching out her arms, doing some bicep curls while bringing her thumb up to her mouth/rolling from side to side and doing some leg lifts/and in the right ultrasound picture above you can see she has her hands over her head, feet planted against the floor (or um, my uterus) and she is attempting a backbend - quite the little gymnast I tell ya! I'm just thinking that as soon as I start feeling her movements I am going to be in for one heck of a ride!
Eric and I are both beyond ecstatic. I'm looking forward to doing some serious pink shopping now, and the proud Papai (Daddy in Portuguese) is already showing his protective side: On his way out the door for work this morning I was instructed to take good care of his daughter while he was away. I think she's going to have him wrapped around her little finger before she even makes her grand appearance into the world next year!
