Oh, the love!

I’m completely in love with my baby.
Yesterday, they confirmed that I am going to have a little girl. The ultrasound was unlike any I’ve ever had. They spent about 40 minutes just letting us see her and we were able to see everything. At one point, we even got to see her little mouth opening and closing. We saw her nose, her eyes, her little fingers opening and closing. Tony and I both cried and fell so deeply in love with her. We saw her heart beating while her little legs kicked. I know it means nothing to anyone else, but to me and my family, it was the greatest experience.
We’ve decided we’re going to name her Gabriella Mercedes. I love her so much already. It’s incredible.
They made a video tape of the ultrasound and I tried to record a little bit of it with my camera so I could share it with everyone. I wasn’t able to get a good picture, but I did get a shot where you can see her little face, then you can see her hand and her fingers moving. I know you won’t enjoy it as much as I do, but I had to show her off.
If you care to see, here’s my sweet girl. (the quality is very poor, but you can see… Quicktime required)

    Thank you, Grace. I know it’s not as exciting as what I had for dinner last night, or where I shopped yesterday, but to me, it’s the greatest news ever.

    I think it’s wonderful, and I’m very excited for you! I never comment, because I’m a little shy about that (dumb, I know) but I read you everyday, and I’m glad to hear that things went so well. Babies are the coolest. :-)

    Like you needed an ultrasound when you have a melly. If I ever have a girl, I’m so naming her “Queen”.
    Don’t none of ya fuckers steal my name.

    You chose such a beautiful name and the ultrasound was fascinating! I had my kids before they ever did that kind of thing so I never got to see my little ones before they were born. Congrats, again!

    You know, I think the ultrasounds were my favourite part of being pregnant. Brought back lots of wonderful memories for me. I will admit that I’m slightly jealous, and wish that I could have just suspended some of that time forever. They grow so fast! Enjoy every minute of having a little girl. They are a wonderful blessing. There is nothing like a mother-daughter bond.
    Congratulations!

    That’s awesome! I was thrilled when I found out I was having a girl. My daughter Alaina was almost a Gabrielle/Gabby. I love that name. Congratulations!!!
