20 Weeks!

This week marks week 20 in my pregnancy! I can't believe I am halfway there. This pregnancy has seemed to fly by and I hope it continues that way. I had my ultrasound on Monday and let me tell you I was so impatient waiting for it to get here! This whole pregnancy I have felt that we were having boy number 3. Then on the big day of the ultrasound I had a really neat experience with Wesley in the car. I was driving him to school and telling him that we were going to find out if the baby was a boy or girl. I asked him if he wanted a little brother or a sister. He said "sister" with a huge grin on his face. I all of a sudden felt the spirit and had a strong impression that we would in fact be welcoming a little girl into our family.

After dropping him off, I met Rob and my Mom at the doctor's office. I was extremely nervous for some reason but very excited. We were finally called back and got the exciting news that we were having A GIRL!!! I was honestly shocked, even though I had a strong feeling that day that we were going to get that news. I was skeptical of the ultrasound tech and made her double check. She got another angle and said yep, it's definitely a girl. She continued on with the ultrasound and everything checked out to be perfect! Our sweet baby seemed to be healthy and growing right on target. At the very end of the ultrasound, the tech decided to check the gender one more time. {I think we were making her nervous} So she checked one more time and said that it was still a girl. Here are some pictures of our sweet baby girl:

This is the first shot we saw of her. She's waving hello!
{Look at those little muscles! She's going to be one tough little girl!}

It's a Girl!'s a girl again!

She was moving around like crazy during the ultrasound and at one point she was bending and straightening her legs. The tech was able to capture it in the next two pictures.

We have a whole disc of pictures, but I won't bore you with them all. We are SO excited to be having a girl. Especially the boys! I can't wait to go shopping for her and practically "break the bank" as Rob put it. She is going to be one spoiled little girl. My mom and sisters are so excited to be welcoming a new granddaughter and niece. It's been 12 years since my last niece was born! Our family is definitely ready for a girl. I've been having so much fun looking for baby bedding online and planning out her cute nursery in my head. Now if Rob and I could just agree on a name...
