Are we having a boy or a girl?

Last week we went to the doctor for our 16 week apointment. We had another ultra sound and were able to see the development of out little one. The doctor said the baby is about 4-5 inches long and it's head is about the size of a golf ball. Joe really understand well when he talks in glof terms.

Then we were able to hear the heart beat for the first time! It was amazing the hear his or her little heart beating so fast. The heart rate was in the 150's. Of course I had to ask whether that meant a girl or a boy and the doctor said, "that is a girl heart beat." We all know that the heart rate doesn't indicate the gender of the baby, but it's fun to guess.

We'll see if he was right in late December or early January!
