Excitement for More Pink!

Today's doctor's appointment was much anticipated since it was the full ultrasound where they would officially tell us if the little one was going to be a girl or a boy.  Jeff even came with me this morning to ensure he heard (or saw) the same thing I did.  After the routine stuff at the beginning, we went in for the ultrasound.  Well, the start was quite...tedious, but good to hear that the baby was growing well in there.  After all the official measurements and listening to the heart beat (beating at a rapid 154 bpm), the tech ended the viewing without any comment on the gender!  Well, I casually mentioned to her that Jeff had actually come along specifically to find out the gender, so she sat me back down and we took a quick look...and she showed us...definitely girl!  :)

Jeff and I are so excited that Tay's going to have a little sister!  I'm so excited to meet the little personality growing inside me!  Half way through and half way to go...can't hardly wait.

I wonder how similar and different she will be from Tay.  Looking forward to getting to know her better...now that I can call her my little girl...:)

First movement!

While we were in Bali from 15-21 April, I felt the little one inside me move for the first time!  It was that sweet little fluttering sensation that was undeniably the little one making itself known.  Now that the first fetal movement has been felt, I can feel the little one kicking away and pushing to make room inside every day!  Quite an amazing feeling and makes me smile every time...:)
