Baby Gender Mystery Solved

The mystery surrounding my unborn child has been solved!! We found out on Monday that we are having a baby girl. Her name will be Grace O'Malley after my grandmother and the Irish pirate/rebel, Grace O'Malley. She will be called Malley for short in order to distinguish her from another Grace that we know whose parents we are friends with. Malley weighs 1 pound, 7 ounces and is right on target. She is kicking all of the time now and seems to be very laid back and shy.

The reason that I believe that she is laid back and shy is because her kicks are very gentle and nothing seems to affect her, even sugar and caffeine! She is shy because she is always trying to hide her private parts or her face with her hands during ultrasounds. We were able to find out what she is when she was hiding her face for a change instead of her privates. She does not seem to like the ultrasound wond and will contort herself into positions that it make it difficult for the ultrasound tech to get accurate measurements which are required each month to check on her growth since I am high risk due to the MTHFR clotting factors which could stunt her growth.

Well, that is all for now.
