A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood

Today is a gorgeous summer day. There's a cool breeze that only living by the ocean can get you and the sky is an amzing blue dusted with streaks of thin cloud.

In a little while, R and I are heading downtown to participate in the World Partnership Walk. My company is a sponsor so we have a good large team walking. It's 5 kms but at least I don't have to walk the entire thing if I'm not up for it. We'll see how it goes.

I will do a Show and Tell post later today depending on when I get back from a friend's b-day bbq.

But first a quick update. I wanted to tell you this on Friday but I never had a chance! We had our big ultrasound on Friday. The anatomy scan. It was amazing. We got to see Bean on a big TV and the tech talked while she took her measurments. I had to go pee so badly I could barely drink 1/2 a glass. I had to pee twice before my appt, so I was worried I wouldn't be full enough and they wouldn't be able to do the u/s.

Well I shouldn't have worried. It was fine. Although the tech did point out why I had to go SO badly... Bean's head was directly on my bladder. Yeah, thanks love. As R commented, Bean needed a pillow...lovely.

The scan went great. The tech was awesome and pointed out differnt organs and bones. Her spine was the most beatuiful thing!

Oops, did I let that slip? Yep, you heard me. While we'll wait for our 3D u/s next month for a second confirmation, we're having a girl!!!!

I cried during this u/s, not because it was a girl but becuase after all we'd been through, the tech told us all the measurements were perfect and that coupled with the bloodwork I did (that came back negative for genetic issues), we have a healthy baby.

What more could we ask for?

It was the perfect end to a long and stressful week.
