Bambino Update

We had our first ultrasound today and first and foremost, everything looks healthy with our baby! Thank you for all the prayers. We were both very nervous going in and we are so thankful for a wonderful report. Secondly--IT'S A GIRL! We are thrilled to have another precious girl in our family. I think I was more emotional finding out this time just thinking about all the fun the two of them will have together. We saw every little part of her (our u.s. tech was phenomenal--I loved her so much). We got tons and tons of pictures and some good 3-D images of her face. She was even signing "I love you" in one pic! She was measuring at 7 oz which is a little larger than 17 weeks. She kept pushing out with her hands as if she was trying to move the wand away and was sucking her thumb and chewing on her fingers. We have a healthy, fiesty, active little girl. It was a great Monday morning. During my regular check-up, everything was on track too. Blood pressure was still great. Still haven't gained any weight. I'm just waiting for that visit where I gain 9 pounds at once like last time!! I compared pics from my last pregnancy and I am definitely showing at lot more at 17 weeks than I was with Ingy.

Ingrid, me, and pics of her new baby sis! Doesn't she look happy? She is such a joy and I'm over the moon excited to give her a sister. A best friend and playmate for life. She doesn't even know it yet, but I can't wait until she does.
