Why, hi there little Jellybean!

We've made it to the halfway point with this little baby and for that, I'm very thankful!  We had our normal midway anatomy scan last week and everything looks good!  We go back in 4 weeks for another scan because this baby was so wiggly that they could not get a good look at her spine.  Interestingly, that was the same scenario way back at week 10 and part of the reason they did the 3D image.

I've sort of dropped the ball on staying updated on the ol' blog... mostly because migraines and nausea hit me two weeks before Christmas and screens were not my friend.  Because I never blogged anything about Christmas, I didn't get to show our little "reveal" we had.

I chose to do the cfDNA test this time because of our previous losses (which came back great) but the bonus was that I knew gender the week before Christmas.  So I bought a little outfit and we told the kids that there was a special present under the tree on Christmas morning.  It was one of the most anticipated presents to be opened! They couldn't wait.  Even Ken didn't know if the baby was a boy or girl.

So, you can imagine the excitement when they opened the present and discovered a cute pink dress!  There were shouts of "I knew it!" amongst the "Yay!"and squeals of Carrie.  Caroline had insisted from the beginning that she was getting a baby sister (and I was really hoping she wouldn't be disappointed if it was a boy because I thought for sure we were having a boy.).  At any rate, it will be fun to add another sweet little girl to the family in June!

Now, we just need a name....
