Proud Parents of a Baby Girl

Friday was the big day when we eventually found out that Peanut is a little girl. Our appointment was for 10:30 and it takes us about a hour to get to Hermanus, but hubby and me were up early and we left home just before 8:00. Too eager to wait any longer for the big reveal. We had a nice breakfast and did some shopping before heading off to the doctor.

Hope she has her dad's dimple

The bump
We finally got to see the doc just before 11:00. By that time my nerves were a bit raw, seems to be worried before each scan that maybe they'll find something wrong. But our baby is growing well and is healthy and beautiful - and not very co-operative. The last time she was kicking up a storm, little legs all over the place, but this time she was very relaxed, sucking her thumb, knees together and feet tucked away underneath her bum.. Great position to establish the sex - not!  The doc looked this way and that and we eventually manage to glimpse between the feet at her bum and from the side see that there is no extra equipment. So it is not written in stone, but we got a 80% sure that it is indeed a little girl. Bring on the pink!


  1. Congratulations! You must be thrilled.
