UFO Part Two...

So my teaser post worked? I see that many of my faithful readers were quite unproductive for the majority of the morning trying to solve the UFO clue! Although, I am sad to say, only two actual comments on the post!!! I thought more would respond dying to know details!!! I do have to say I had some personal emails begging....

Last night, the Long's had a secret surprise mission to fulfill -- drink 12+ oz of OJ and make it down to Methodist Hospital by 8:15pm for a "Top Secret" Ultrasound with a very experienced midwife whose name will remain anonymous!

Nate and I arrived at Methodist Hospital promptly and were escorted to Labor and Delivery by two famous people. (Mind you, by this time I had to pee twice!) We anxiously sat in a room, awaiting the arrival of our "Super-baby detector man." When he arrived, I hopped on to the bed and on went the television. He puts tons of the cold "Goo" on my tummy and fired up the ultrasound machine. For the next 45 minutes, Nate and I and the two famous people watched in AWE as we saw our little Peanut moving around like crazy!! "Super-baby detector man" asked me what I had to drink b/c the baby was going crazy in there. I told him that Peanut doesn't usually get much sugar and he/she got more sugar in 30 minutes, than he/she usually gets all day long! :) Peanut also likes the camera and enjoys putting on a show for his/her mama and daddy! Peanut was flapping his/her jaw, pretending to talk like his/her mama! Peanut stuck out his/her tongue at least 10 times!!

"Super-baby detector man" did an AWESOME job at the ultrasound. He showed us all of the diagnostic measurements and explained all the ways our baby was super healthy. I won't bore you with all the details of the diagnostics!! (I think they are uber cool!) It was just amazing and more than I could have ever dreamed of!! If only our first US would have been like this!!

Toward the middle of the US, Peanut decided to moon us and stick his/her butt up in the air and partially open the legs. "Super-baby detector man" told us that he is pretty sure that he saw "girl parts" and that we are most likely having a little baby GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He told us not to go and paint the whole house pink, but the chances were pretty high!! There wasn't any "giant boy parts" floating around in the amniotic fluid as I had previously dreamed last week!!

This mama was thrilled, but yet she is still a bit reserved due to the fact it isn't 100% and we didn't get a full frontal view to assure ourselves that there isn't a little "wee-wee" hiding under the cord!!! Go figure, more "maybe's" in our pregnancy!! But hey, we should be used to "maybe" by now huh?

So, the UFO is revealed: (Possibly) Unmistakable Female Organs!! UFO!!!!

Did you guess correctly?? Or were you way off????

Hope you enjoyed the teaser!!! I know I loved every minute of it!!!

Congrats guys! We're excited for you! I hope you find out if it's a girl for sure soon! It's exciting it probably is, but probably still a bit frustrating not knowing for sure! -ERZ

Woo hoo! Yay for girls!

I'm so glad that you got to have another U/S as well and hope that everything looked good. I, too, am fascinated by the details, but am more anxious now about the results!

Super excited for you guys! Congrats!

Guess my retirement is definitely on hold for good now! Need all that extra money I can get for Miss Princess Peanut.
Sounds like Dad is going to have to get a part-time job to help me with my "habit"
love MIMI and PawPaw
