It's (probably) a....
...girl! We had our 12 week ultrasound (complete with NT testing and all that fun stuff) today and what a lovely active baby! Stretching its legs out like its trying to work out the kinks...very cute. The ultrasound tech asked if we wanted to know what she thought it was (gender wise). Sure! A girl. Really? Yup. Apparently, at this stage they can see the orientation of the genitalia. Up usually means boy (why am I not surprised?) and down usually means girl. And our little belly bean's bits are pointed down. So - how often is she right? 80%!!! Oh my!
We'll have plenty of other ultrasounds to make sure everything is fine and the one at 18 weeks ought to be a bit clearer. But it looks like JJ might just have a little sister on his hands.
