We're back from our scan and... (in Off-topic)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 4 2006 11:00 AM EDT

She's a little girl! D


Everything came back normal, correct date, sizes, etc. Heart looks good.

We needed to be scanned a second time as they wanted to check her leg measurements.

She's got very long legs! ;) Nothing abnormal, just as the long end of the scale compared to everything else which normal!

A leggy little miss! :D

We have to go back for a scan at 36 weeks, the placenta is still low. It should move up, but if it doesn't it will block a natural birth.

Either way, we don't care! :D

Yay GL, celebrations for 3 again tonight? ;P

AdminG Beee October 4 2006 11:10 AM EDT

Great news.

If you need practice let me know, I'll happily send you down one of my daughters (or both) for a few weeks anytime :)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 4 2006 11:11 AM EDT

Thanks all! :D

Zog, I still can't drink, so I would be proud if you did me the honour tonight of getting wasted! :D

G, how could we deprive you? ;)

PirateKing October 4 2006 11:14 AM EDT

Congratulations GL. Best wishes to you, Mrs. GL, and Li'l Miss GL. :)

InebriatedArsonist October 4 2006 11:30 AM EDT

You know this means you'll have two ladies in the house who will object to you coming home stinking drunk in the middle of the night.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 4 2006 11:34 AM EDT

Unfortunately GL I'm on a forced sober period, unless I use the alcohol I have in the flat :P
Just had the gf visit me for a couple of days and with the nights out and the fancy restaurant I have £150 to last me until I get a job and get paid or at least until my parents repay what they owe me in 2 weeks time >.<

Maelstrom October 4 2006 11:35 AM EDT

You know this means you'll have two ladies in the house who will object to you coming home. Period.

Nah, just joking. Congrats GL! That's great news! Keep us posted :D

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] October 4 2006 11:38 AM EDT

Wonderful news! Congratulations! :)

(If you need a tutorial, Mrs. Beee will happily send a daughter and her husband for as long as you need them!)

QBBarzooMonkey October 4 2006 11:46 AM EDT

Yes!!! Congratulations to all 3 of you!!!


AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] October 4 2006 12:55 PM EDT

Congrats GL!

Darkwalker [Jago] October 4 2006 1:45 PM EDT

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 4 2006 2:13 PM EDT

Uploaded a pic of the scan. ;)

We're going out for a meal with my folks tonight. Sod the tablets, I'm gonna have a couple of beers! ;)

PirateKing October 4 2006 2:22 PM EDT


Check your CM's.

AdminShade October 4 2006 2:22 PM EDT

Yeah a little Shadie !!! :D


AdminG Beee October 4 2006 3:05 PM EDT

Are you sure it's a little girl ?
First impression was a bunny rabbit, a cute bunny rabbit for sure, but a bunny rabbit never-the-less. :)

Useless trivia.
I met my wife while we were both working for a company that developed and made these machines in 1985. Cutting edge technology back in those days and I never ever did see anything other than bunny rabbits when looking at the scans...

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] October 4 2006 3:05 PM EDT

Thumbs up with a big smile between them.

QBOddBird October 4 2006 4:31 PM EDT

Congratulations!!!! Fantastic news!

48Zach October 4 2006 4:47 PM EDT

Nice, dude.. if u need ne parenting skills.. Im a kid, talk to me ^ ^ jokes.. You'll be great

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 4 2006 5:15 PM EDT

:D My parenting skills strech to "Little kids sohuld be seen and not heard!" :P

G, far right is the head, the two seperat blobs middle top are the hands (She was sucking her thumb originally, we had to get her to move her hands out of the way!).

From the long legs I assume the white to the left is the kneecap, with the feet outside the scan area. The wavey line that could be a leg is the umbilical cord.

Either that or she's actually a boy! :P

Mrs Beee October 4 2006 5:47 PM EDT

Congrats GL, A leggy wee girl, you will have to watch out for all the boys in London! I would buy a baseball bat now!

hzarb October 4 2006 6:03 PM EDT

Great news.. Big congrats to you both..

Stephen October 4 2006 7:24 PM EDT

Congratulations! As the father of a leggy 4 year old, you are in for a great learning experience. I never knew there was so much pink in the world until I had a daughter!

Flamey October 4 2006 8:36 PM EDT


Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 4 2006 10:44 PM EDT

You ruined it with the couple of beers GL! I ended up doing the whole making up for the 3 of you tonight since my flatmate owed me a few pints as well as the 2 rounds I bought on top of the couple we had in the flat!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 5 2006 3:32 AM EDT

:D Thanks Zog! I had a couple, but couldn't get drunk, so I hope you made up for me on that!

No baseball bat needed Mrs B, I've still got my wooden training hand and a half swords from my Western Martial Art. I'll smack them up with them! :P

Tell me about it Stephen! Buying neutral colours is out of the window now! >_< But we were told not to buy too muhc pink, as they can't be 100%. But the scans looked quite decisive! :P

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 5 2006 7:06 AM EDT

I made up for it too much, nightclubs with rock rooms that have heating turned up=too much drink >.<

th00p October 5 2006 2:31 PM EDT

CONGRATULATIONS! Just be careful when she gets older, we all know how the little boys feel about long legged chicks ;-)

Adminedyit [Superheros] October 5 2006 6:44 PM EDT

Congrats!! my little one just turned 4, you are in for some of the best times of your life.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 7 2006 4:56 PM EDT

We now have a travel cot! :D

AdminG Beee October 7 2006 8:18 PM EDT

We just tied the buggy to the back of the car...
