It's A ........

GIRL!

I cannot believe it. I keep saying that but Jared and I have been pretty convinced along with all of our family members that it was a girl. I keep thinking that only a girl could torture me like this. :) My boys are too in love with Mama to put me through the constant nausea. Seriously though we are thrilled and would have been either way but now we have a name to go with this little one growing inside me. It definitely makes it feel more real and special to know what's living in there.

I saw the specialist (perinatologist) yesterday. He deals specifically with high risk pregnancies. It was reassuring to meet with him. He has hope that we have a chance for a full term pregnancy. At the same time my blood pressure has been a little high but still within the normal range. He feels that there is no need to be concerned with it at this time. He also sees no need to limit my activity which is a HUGE praise as I have a little something called (almost) 3 YEAR OLD TWINS to chase around. I am 16 weeks on Sunday and he thinks the earliest they would start to limit activity is 24 weeks. I am still praying it won't be necessary that early but I will of course follow doctor's orders.

Aunt Linda and I shopped for the boys Easter outfits last night and already bought a blanket for little miss thing. I also already found bedding for her this morning online. This whole girl thing could be dangerous. :) I still cannot believe that I get to buy girly stuff. SO exciting and unexpected. It is incredible.

As far as a name we think we have one but we are not positive yet. Names are a tricky thing, you know.
