Right from the get go we were asked if we wanted to know the sex of the child and ours was an resounding 'yes'. Thus we thought we'd be receiving an immediate answer .... half an hour later ... many, many measurements and finally ... it's a girl!!!! It was a surprise, but a nice one, it's good to know we'll have one of each. She was just as camera shy as Isaac was and kept her hands and arms over her face. We spent much of our dinner considering girl names.
Her heart, kidneys, length of bones, etc all looked normal. This is great news since it lowers the risk of Down Syndrome for her from 1/27 to 1/75. We will still see the perinatologist tomorrow morning. The question remains if we want to risk an amniocentesis. We shall keep you posted.
