Those 11 hours flew by...

I actually was able to sleep last night and according to my husband I was also snoring like a lumberjack. Opps! So we went in for our ultra sound this morning and found out that we're having a little...

Sadie Marie!!!! I couldn't believe it. I just KNEW this morning, for some reason, that it was going to be a boy. I even told the u/s tech, "yes we'd like to know but we think it's a boy". LOL She said, well you may think it's a boy but I'm looking at a girl here! And there they were, 1, 2, 3 little girl lines. She's 100% healthy, measuring right on target. It was fantastic to see her and watch as she was being measured. She was pretty quiet and laying with her hand up next to her face.

We're just thrilled. Just absolutely elated. Marco's parents are out shopping for all things pink as we speak. It's the first girl in their family so as you can imagine her wardrobe will look like pink threw up in it. Thank God I'm a huge fan of the color.

My mom said she just knew it because when she pictures our child she always see a little girl (who looks unmistakably just like me). My dad, the man of few words, simply said "I didn't want to know." Well too bad! He did congratulate us though.

We immediately went out and bought a little aqua and white checked dress, a pair of blue jeans with pink trim on the pockets and a little while t-shirt that said "I'm going to be a top model"! I couldn't believe they had a shirt that said that especially since ANTM (all though I'm boycotting it) was such a big "deal" during our fertility struggle. (Marco used to tell me after every procedure, appt, disappointment & struggle that "I was one step closer to being the mom of America's Next Top Model" It was a comic relief we needed.)

I can't believe it. I'm going to have a daugther. WOW! A little mini me, attitude and all, strutting around this crazy planet. Unbelievable. Sadie Marie is on her way. Watch out world!

I absolutely LOVE having a baby girl. Much more so than I ever thought I would...I always pictured myself being better at raising a little boy. That all changed the second she was born.

Congrats!!
