IT'S A GIRL!!!!!
We can't believe it. I personally thought it may have just been impossible. But it's true. Or at least 99.9% (according to the ultrasound technician) true. And best of all, everything looks good and healthy.
Here's my favorite interaction of the day:
Technician: Do you want to see between the legs?
Me: Yes, please.
T: Any wagers? (looks at Nate, Nate shakes his head)
Me: I think it might be a boy, I had a dream it was a boy....
T: Ok, let's see here.........well, there's "his" vagina.
Too funny. We also found out that the placenta is anterior lying, meaning that it's in front, so no wonder I haven't felt too much kicking. Oh well. There are worse places it could lie.
Our daughter (ohmigosh, that sounds so weird), was a bit of a stinker too. She kept moving away from us and refusing to give a profile picture. Plenty of face-on ones though. She was moving and punching up a storm too. One picture we even got with her hand beneath her chin, graduation style! Such a little poser. She's definitely a Grellmann girl!

Ah, body image. Gotta love the way we love/hate our bodies. So much societal pressure to look a certain way. Even in pregnancy.
~19 weeksRecently, my weight hasn't been an issue for me. I've been on the low end of the BMI index for awhile now, and even at my heaviest, (freshman, 15 baby), I was still within the normal range. So, seeing my weight go up and up, is a bit hard for me. I know it's ok, but sometimes it freaks me out to see those numbers I've never seen before on a scale! But I'm not complaining (yet). Just telling. Please don't look at my butt.
