18 Week Ultrasound

As you all know, Clark and I had our 18 week ultrasound on Wednesday. We were thrilled to find out that we are having a little girl but we were more excited to learn that she is a healthy baby! Although she was not in the best position for the anatomy scan, the tech was able to check all of her major parts and organs and she estimated her weight to be about 9 ounces! Dr. Shields compared her to the size of a Whopper! I might need to stop by Burger King to get a better idea of what a 9 ounce baby feels like :) Since she was in an unusual position, we are going to have a second ultrasound at our next appointment on September 20. Hopefully we will get better pictures at that time as well.

Clark and I decided on a name for the little girl. Her name is Rebecca Rose Lyon and we plan to call her Rose. Although, I have found myself really liking Rebecca Rose as a double name, so I guess we will just wait until we meet her to see if she looks like a Rose or a Rebecca Rose! Rebecca is for my paternal grandmother, Rebecca Susman, and Rose is for my maternal grandmother, Rosalie Rosner. I am excited that Rose will be named after two very special people in my life. I miss both of my grandmothers and wish they could be here to meet their great-granddaughter, but I am happy their names will live on with my little girl!
