It's a....

G - I - R - L!!!

Oh my gosh... I am on Cloud 9!!! We had our ultrasound this morning, and I am just gushing with joy right now. I was so nervous with this ultrasound, not only because it would be our big gender reveal, but also because I wanted everything else to be okay. I was the same way with Bobby's. Well, we have a healthy baby, and a little sister on the way! I have to admit that I really wanted this baby to be a girl. Like, really, really. I didn't want to let on how much I wanted a girl, in case we had another boy. I truly believe that you are happy with whatever God gives you, but I almost felt like I had to prepare myself with the news that it could very well be a boy. I have always envisioned having at least 2 kids, with one of each. And, along with that, I had always envisioned the boy being the older sibling (ya know... to "protect" his baby sister.) :) I can't believe how blessed we are, that it actually played out this way! And, the best part... if we decide to have more - it totally takes any pressure off!

Onto some stats:

Heartbeats/Minute - 154

I'm 17 weeks, 6 days (measured 17 weeks, 3 days).

Weight gained to date - 6 lbs. (yikes).
