It's a Girl!

Today we had our 20 week ultrasound, and everything is looking good. Our ultrasound technician said she is 95% sure that it is a girl. We were hoping for 100% but I have another ultrasound in 8 weeks, when they can hopefully check again. They wanted to look again because our baby seems to have a single umbilical artery. Most babies have 2 arteries and 1 vein in the umbilical cord, ours has 1 artery and 1 vein. Not a cause for concern, but it means we'll get to see the baby a little sooner than before.
I'm feeling a little shocked (although very happy) with our gender news. I guess I had been more sure that it was a boy than I thought! I'm second guessing my original girl name, so time to look at the baby name websites for some more inspiration. :-)
Here is baby looking like a Dia De Los Muertos skeleton:
Fun with little shoes :-)
