There's another Amelia in there

Back at xmas when we were taking my sister's crib and infant car seat, Amelia got a little upset. Krista explained to her that it was for my baby that was growing in my belly and Amelia asked me "Is there another Amelia in there?" And well, yes today we found out that indeed there is another little girl in my belly.

My mom said when she told my dad, his response was, "Of course it is another girl." I wonder if EZ's parents will be think the same thing. Granddaughter number 4 for them and no grandsons!

BZ had all good measurements, all fingers and toes, 2 kidneys, ect, except for a spot on her left ventricle which is apparently called a echogenic foci spot (or a calcium deposit). Apparently this is a minor marker for a chromosomal defect but since I had done the blood screening and that was negative and all other indicators are negative, there is no increased risk for anything. This is something that apparently is fairly common. From what I have read over the last hour about it, it sounds like most of the time the spot goes away. I will have to ask at my next appointment about if they are going to do another ultrasound in 2 months or so to see.

Anyway, here are a couple of the good photos from today. She was a little acrobat moving all over the place (it must have been the ice cream I had at lunch to pep her up!)
