Girl Time!

How is it possible that it's been 3 months since I last posted on my blog! Wow! There's a lot that's happened. I'll start with where I left off. As most of you know by now, it turns out we're having a little girl. I am beyond excited!! I can't wait to have a little mini side kick to hang out with and dress in adorable girly clothes.

We thought there was a chance we weren't going to be able to find out the sex of the baby at my doctor's appointment because she was tucked down nice and deep in my uterus . She was all snuggled up down there pretty much bent in half with her legs tucked in underneath her blocking the view of her ... cha cha. Anyways the doctor starts shaking my belly and jabbing and poking me right above my pelvic bone trying to make the baby move to higher ground, but it wasn't working. I had to roll onto my side for a while in hopes that she would shift a little. She was too comfortable and didn't really move, but the doctor still managed to get a view of her ... hoo ha ... and confirmed she was a girl. I was so excited! I think it took Troy a minute to get excited about it. He had initially wanted a girl, but then we came across a boy name that we really liked and he got his heart set on a boy. Don't worry though, he's back on team girl and very excited.

There were a few things the doctor couldn't get a great angle of because of our baby's position so I had to head back for another ultrasound two weeks later. I was kind of happy it worked out that way because I honestly don't think there's anything cooler in the world than getting to take a peak at that little growing baby! When we went back we caught a glimpse of her holding onto her feet, how cute is that!

It seems like we just found out what we were having and now I'm just about 6 weeks away from my due date! This is all happening a little too fast! I'm excited, but also terrified! First of all I'm freaking out just thinking about what I have to go through in order to welcome this baby into the world and then I'm scared about how I really have no idea what I'm doing as a mother! I guess there's no turning back now so bring on the adventure!

I had a doctor's appointment this week and they gave me some information to pre-register for my delivery and a list of things I should pack to bring to the hospital. I also had to schedule all my remaining appointments. I have one in two weeks and then it will be weekly visits from that point on. It all really hit me that this baby girl is getting ready to make her debut. I'm scared!!
