A Kodak Moment

We've got more photos of Baby M to share! Our 20-week ultrasound was this morning, and everything went really well. Baby M is measuring where he/she should be (about 10 inches and weighing 12 ounces) and had a heartbeat of 150 bpm. We got to see the brain, the heart and its four chambers, the kidneys, the eyes, and all of Baby M's developing features ... with the exception of the sex organs, of course. However I was unbelievably tempted to tell the ultrasound tech to just show us the goods, but the urge passed once Baby M started putting on a show for us. Both Jeremy and I were entranced just watching Baby M and all of his/her punching, twisting, wriggling, sucking and reacting to the ultrasound tech's movement of my belly. I think we've definitely got a busy-body on our hands.

So based on the latest photos, any guesses as to Baby M's sex? We've had Grandpa M with two dreams that we're having a girl and Grandma M agreeing that it's a girl based on the shape and size of my belly. However, Grandma A has been dreaming it's a boy. As for us? We haven't had dreams that say one or the other, and maybe that's because we'll be ecstatic either way!
