Today was the day!!! We found out today that our little Baby Z is a precious little GIRL!!! Since we found out we were pregnant, our main prayer was that this baby would be healthy & well developed. In my heart, I wanted a sweet little girl so bad, but would have been thankful & pleased with a sweet little boy as well! Starting out with the heartbeat so high, I just knew it was a girl. But, as time went on & my shape started forming, I was slightly convinced the opposite way. I had determined it was going to be a boy! But, my prayer stayed the same. Today we go to the Dr. & have the heartbeat done first, it was 140. I looked at Matt & said..."It's definitely a boy." Even my nurse stated she had two boys & both of their heartbeats were in the 140's. We left her & went to the ultrasound room anxiously waiting to see our little boy on the screen. She started showing us the heartbeat once again, the head, the spine & so forth. Finally, she asked if we were ready to know what we were having. She started towards the legs & there was nothing in between. I couldn't believe my eyes. There on that screen was our sweet, sweet, precious baby girl. We were both in shock, but had nothing but excitement on our faces & in our hearts. The tech then went on to show us her feet, legs, arms & hands. As she got to the hands, our sweet little girl lifted hers up to say "hello". That little hand melted our hearts & our love for her is already so much it's uncontainable. The Lord is so good to us & has blessed our lives in so many ways, we can never be thankful enough. But, He looked down deep & knew the desires of our hearts & decided to bless us again. We thank the Lord He has given us a healthy happy little girl, whom we will spoil like there's no tomorrow! Thank you Lord!!!!

I am now 17 weeks, just haven't taken the pic yet! But, here is 15 & 16 weeks. It seems like the weeks are going faster than I can keep up! Next Friday, we go to find out what our little Z may be. Whether boy or girl! From the pics you have seen so far, what do you think? Some days I feel like I'm carrying a boy & other days I feel like I'm shaped as if it is a girl! I am all confused & haven't gotten the little motherly intuition just yet! When is that supposed to happen lol? I will be happy no matter what the sex of the baby is, a part of me would love to have a little girl to dress up & treat like a princess, but nothing takes the place of those mama's boys! I'm just ready to know & these next few days better not creep along! I am still feeling great! I have started to feel very light "flutters" in my lower region & right now those are the best feelings in the world! I can't wait until they get a little stronger! My energy is starting to come back & I know my hubby is glad of that because now I can get more things done around the house & he doesn't have to pick up my slack so much! But, he has been wonderful - not complaining at all! I still feel tired at the end of the day but not like it was in the first trimester! My appetite is back with a vengeance & at the moment I can't help but give into it! I do not own a scale, so I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not! I will be weighed soon & will go from there! The only problem I can complain of right now is lower back pain, but to ease it off I just get in the bathtub & soak. What a wonderful feeling! And so relaxing! Baby Z is about the size of my hand these days & about 4 1/2 - 5 in. long. Which means everything is starting to really stretch & grow. I love my little Z & can't wait until next Friday to find out & go shopping for his/hers first outfit:) Oh the joys of these little miracles!!!!
