We’ll probably be more gender neutral after this week, but homegirl has labia. BABY LABIA. I also will never say that again. Or I might. My friend just had a girl and said that when she had her anatomy ultrasound the tech explained what she was looking at in very specific anatomical terms, and while I know/hope that my baby has all the right parts, do you HAVE to say vulva when talking about a baby?
Yes, apparently you do. And so do I.
We found out late last Thursday night when I got back to Jay and his leg. He was loopy on pain meds so I let him open the envelope and THE SMILE you guys. And the tears. He was secretly hoping for a girl. I wasn’t hoping for anything, but I had it in my mind that it was a boy because I have no clue what to do with boys. I’m totes cool with a girl.
So here we are. Organs, GI tract, brain, labia. 13-ish ounces and measuring a few days bigger than her due date, so we’re hoping for an early December arrival.
