You might be wondering, how do you know whether it is a girl or a boy? Three lines spaced out from each other is a girl, which I thought looked like a bear scratch. And, a tortoise shaped for a boy.
While our ultrasound technician took some very good pictures, we did not get a shot of her goods. Instead here are a couple pictures, on About.com, that are a good representation of what a girl vs. a boy looks like at different stages of pregnancy:

Feel free to share your experience of finding out the sex of your baby. For me, I was in awe at the detail of the brain and spine, mainly that there was a baby in there, and cried when we found out it was a girl. We had his parents in the room with us too. It was very touching to say the least.
