A bet's a bet.

Wanna know a secret?

We know Lima Bean's gender. :)

Andrew and I found out Lima Bean's gender yesterday, but before our appointment we made a bet with my parents if it was a girl or a boy. Both Mom and Dad agreed it would be a girl, while Andrew and I betted it was a boy (my sis Kate was on our side too). If it was a girl, Andrew and I would owe the rents dinner on Saturday. If it was a boy, Andrew and I would be treated.

The appointment went really well. The ultrasound tech put the warm HOT goo on my tummy and started moving the magic wand around. We got to hear the heart beat... 151 bpm. We saw Lima's stomach and all four chambers of the heart. We also got to see the spine - so cool. Lima is certainly a little miracle. We enjoyed the ultrasound so much. I think we feel even closer to the babe now.

Well as the tech did her thing on my stomach, she asked if we wanted to know the sex of the baby. We said yes, so she did a little more exploring... she checked three different times throughout the ultrasound so she could say confidently (99% positive) if it was a boy or a girl... AND....

It looks like we owe Mom and Dad dinner on Saturday!

So there you have it folks. A bet's a bet - and we lost. Looks like Lima's gonna be a daddy's girl!

The ultrasound tech said Lima looked like a gymnast! That's a leg and an arm up above.
The two dark spots in the rounded area on left (the body) are her stomach and heart. So cool!

No explanation needed.

Baby Lima is saying hello! Such a sweet face if I say so myself.


  1. How exciting! Adding another little girl to the Fowler family tree! Congratulations!!! Love to you all.

  2. Didn't it melt your heart to see Little Baby Girl Jones moving? I cried when we had Benjamin's ultrasound and saw him moving and waving too. It is incredible. Let me know your travel plans when you finalize them

  3. Awe Anne! Soooo sweet! Congrats! I'm so excited for you! So sorry I forgot to respond to your post a while back. I couldn't figure out how and then forgot! lol We should get lunch or something next time you are in town and have some down time (down time? haha I'm sure you stay busy! ;)
