GIRL!!!! Today we had our sonogram and found out that our little Stout Seed # 2 is a girl! It is always amazing to see everything in a sonogram...we got to see her heart with all 4 chambers, her brain, her 2 kidneys, her stomach filled with liquid meaning that she is swallowing, her femur, her hands, her feet, her spine and more! She's like a little person in there...mainly because she is a little person in there :) Once all her measurements were taken, we found out she is measuring at 19 weeks and 4 days old, and I am at 19 weeks and 5 days, so she is right on track! Here are some of the pics from the sono...
This is Samantha Lynn's sweet (and freaky) looking face. Her eye is right under the letter E in FACE, and her forehead is on the right, her hand is on the upper left and her chest is on the left...you get the picture!
Here's her sweet little foot. She was moving around a lot, and we got a good shot of these piggies!! I think it already looks like she has Johnny's feet...just like Joey :) I guess we will see!
And this one's for Uncle Stewie :) The doc said we might have an Aggie on our hands...LOL...anywho, that's her hand and you can see her nose by her thumb and her mouth just to the left of that. Her elbow is below her chin and her shoulder is all the way on the left side of the picture!
Joey and Johnny were both able to come to the sonogram today thanks to Mr. Martin Luther King Jr.! Jo did great and got mad when daddy was in her way and she couldn't see the baby!
After the sono, I had an OB check up...I weighed in at 105 lbs, and again, I guess my pee sample was good enough not to say anything as well as my heart rate because I didn't hear a word about either! The doc hung out with us for about 2.5 seconds, said everything looked good and sent me to get my blood drawn. By the way, the lady who draws blood at our doc is AWESOME!!! I never feel it!
So people have been asking, are you glad it's a girl or did you want a boy?? I will tell you that growing up I wanted 4 boys and NO girls. Now I can't imagine anything else and there are so many reliefs now that we know our little Sam will be here in June instead of a little boy! I'm a list person, so here's my "Why I'm excited Sam's a girl" list:
*Since we already have a girl, we know what to do with a girl! No having to learn about boys :)
*Since the girls b-days (Joey Apr 23, and Sam June 2) won't be too far apart, we are hoping that all Joey's hand me downs will be in the right season and we won't have to buy too many new things!
*Since Sam is a girl, we don't have to do anything to the nursery! No painting...YAY!!
* Joey and Sam may fight when they are young, but get to be best buddies like me and my sister when they grow out of it :)
*I hear girls are easier to potty train!!!
*I also love the boy name for a girl thing we have going on, and don't worry, if we have more girls, we have more names that will work, just you wait and see!!
The list could go on and on, and it would be just as long if Sam had been a boy, but we are thrilled that she is who she is, and that God is molding her into the little lady He wants her to be! We are stoked to say the least, and can't wait to meet Sam in 20 or less weeks!! We are 1/2 way done!!!
