Yes it is true! A girl! It still feels surreal saying that, I don't think it has sunk in. At least 5 times a day Jon and I exchange wide eyed looks and say, "I can't believe it is a girl!". We both assumed it was going to be a boy, well, because we have one. In the end, all that matters is a healthy baby but we are absolutely thrilled to be adding a little lady to our family! We both said... this takes the pressure off for baby #3! And in case you were wondering, we took the Panorama blood test that measures DNA so it is 100% accurate, it really IS a girl! We actually have our "gender sonogram" on Monday so it will be fun to see her wiggle around. Even though we have clear pictures of Ford's man parts throughout my pregnancy (even a 3d shot!), I was afraid they got the gender wrong so it is nice having 100% accurate results.
So it turns out I am just a sick pregnant lady. Boys make me sick, girls make me sick, what a bummer. The only difference between Ford and our girl is the Zofran made me super constipated for a few weeks (under control now with meds) with her, and not with Ford. I still take Zofran morning and night and tried to wean my morning pill last week...unsuccessful. I don't mind taking it because I feel really good when I do, so meds it is. I am over the 1st trimester exhaustion and feeling pretty darn good. Fall back last weekend didn't originally seem to effect Ford but the past few days we have had some EARLY mornings, partly I think due to teething.
I've started feeling more and more quickening and round ligament pain as I see my belly visibly grow. It is crazy how fast I start showing!
I got on Pinterest for the first time last night and MAN it was hard to filter through all the girl nursery stuff. So overwhelming. I pinned a few things, showed Jon, and he helped me narrow down what he liked and didn't like. I know the holidays will be crazy and we have a big things on the calendar in the new year so I want to get ideas rolling. We actually already bought another Jenny Lind crib when we couldn't pass up the deal and I am excited to paint it a fun color.
Other pregnancy related stuff.... I have a great appetite, no specific cravings or aversions. I am about up to my pre pregnancy weight, thanks to keeping sickness under control with meds and I have been peeing approximately 1 million times per night.
This was taken last week, 14w1d. I've mostly been wearing clothes that mask the bump since it's in that awkward stage of growth but I think after this week I can start showing it off because it is there to stay!
And for those of you asking.... our little lady has a name! Jon and I have loved this name since before we got married. We've told family and friends, not sure if we will post it publicly, you'll have to wait and see!
