We found out that we are having a GIRL! We were pretty surprised, but are both very excited! She is currently 10 oz. and her heartbeat was at 154 beats a minute and she is 5 inches long from head to bum. Her ultrasound looked healthy and she was very camera shy as she constantly moved her hands up to cover her face....seeing her little feet and watching her swallow (very cool by the way) made her mommy tear up. I am 21 weeks along and am just about to start wearing some of the new maternity clothes that I bought last weekend. I have to unbutton the top button of most of my shorts/capris, so it is probably about that time. I gained 9 lbs since my last Dr. appt which has freaked me out...but my doctor said that I am right where I am supposed to be and my body was just "catching up" from not gaining too much in the beginning. I have gained about 14 lbs total at this point. YIKES. Only 19 more weeks to go!
