20 weeks today!!!!!!
Went for my scan today and after much debate between my hubby and I we ended up finding out, So after 3 boys (plus a boy my hubby had before we got together that was adopted out at birth) we are having a girl. Its still a crazy shock, but a great one. We were so sure it was going another boy we made her check 3 times lol..

I know how this is sorta, every time I have any sort of ultrasound I make sure there's still a p***s.



Girls are exciting and fun though. I love my little ladies.

I forgot to tell you ladies. I am going tomorrow for another U/S. This one I am paying for. It's $25. I am getting a video of the little one since I got zero pictures from the last one I got. I will be able to take screen shots and will be able to post them that way. I am so excited to see how big she has gotten. This baby is a very active baby, I hope that doesn't mean anything bad when she's born lol

Oh gosh, what an ordeal you have to go through! And here I am complaining about some leg pain? lol



Between what you have going on w/hubby & all you have to go through with your TEAM --- and having a bunch of kids, too --- I applaud you, mama! Hope everything went well w/your insulin. I've had a lot of people close to me w/diabetes, so I understand how scary & difficult it can be sometimes.

Yikes! Sorry to hear this, hon... I hope it moves soon! Until then, I hope you are really able to get some rest. I know it can't be easy with a little one and others at home. Hopefully, they can help, too!

Ugh, yes! Heartburn ALL the time... even after a glass of water. I've moved from Tums to Maalox b/c the tums were just no longer cutting it for me and at least the Maalox seems to numb my esophagus for a little while so the burning stops... lol

CONGRATS on your girl!! How exciting!



Now that we've painted the baby's room, we're getting that feeling --- "what if the tech was wrong? what if HE turns out to be SHE? LOL

Oh, a video will be so much fun! We had my MIL hold the camera for a video when we went for the gender/ full anatomy scan a few wks ago so that my mom could see it, too (we also had her on speaker phone). I've watched the video a couple times since then & I love that we have it. You'll love the keepsake :) Good Luck tomorrow!

I had a appointment today with the OB and diabetics team, I have had swollen feet which they are concrened about but didn't say to much other than them wanting me to have a blood test and come back in two weeks.
I also had leuko trace, protein trace and ketones trace in my urine any ideas why?
Oh well on another note baby is healthy and I have started noticing he's been getting hiccups it looks so funny because my whole belly jolts :) I can't wait untill he's born I am super excited :D
