The Cupcake is kicking! Well, she''s probably been kicking for several weeks, but today Jen felt a real, honest-to-goodness kick from our little one. Topher can''t yet it feel it from the outside, but we''re sure it''s only a matter of time before this kid gets too big for her cozy little house.
Today Jennifer had her anatomy ultrasound, otherwise known as the "big" ultrasound. A technician and a physician both took several images of Cupcake''s heart, brain, kidneys, stomach, bladder, and various bones and other structures. The verdict? She''s perfect! The negative penta screen combined with the clear ultrasound puts Cupcake''s risk of having the previously mentioned genetic anomalies at less than 1 in 10,000.
Unfortunately, Cupcake was being very modest. Also, neither the technician or the physician was especially friendly, so they weren''t willing to take the time to allow Cupcake to overcome her shyness so that they could verify her gender as female. While both stated that they "suspected" she was a girl, they couldn''t get a clear enough picture to be sure. But we know she''s a girl!
