She is healthy, ridiculously active, and absolutely adorable. We got to watch her for about 45 minutes and I loved every minute of it. Even the technician said that our little gal is especially active. Hmmm - I love it now, but this may be a problem when she's particularly active on my bladder or ribs later on in the pregnancy.
We started off and immediately confirmed that she was positioned how I thought she was - head pointing towards my right hand side, legs sticking out to the left. Baby looked right at the ultrasound a few times, then became quite bashful and completely turned positions to be facing the opposite direction (head to the left, feet to the right), and curled over face down in a ball. She maneuvered many more times and even showed us how limber she is by putting her feet straight up in the air while she was on her back and doing a yoga pose. At one point, she smiled. Then we saw her take a drink. She looked like she yawned at one point. And towards the end, after poking and prodding her for over 45 minutes, she dramatically raised her hands to her head, as if in exasperation for why we were bothering her so much.
About halfway through, Ian could've sworn he saw something between her legs. This was before we knew she was in fact a she. But then the technician zeroed in on her bits, and I said immediately that I thought it was a girl. The tech responded that I was indeed correct.
Ian's response: "I'm going to be seriously outnumbered. Just me and my girls." Him, me, baby girl, and Tessa. That, and he immediately apologized to baby girl on the way home, admitting that she'll likely not have a life because he'll be so protective. Too cute.
Here are some of the pics we got (the quality of the scanning is not very good unfortunately).
