DH and I didn't want to know and were team green but in the excitement of the moment of the ultrasound we couldn't wait. We are having a little girl.

We really wanted a boy and I honestly thought I'd be at least a little disappointed but wasn't in the least bit - she's just like her mommy (oh god, here come the tears again). In the ultrasound (last Friday 12/23 at 8:30am) she was still sleeping and was burrowing her way as low as she could get, curled up in a little ball. DH was cracking up saying "he" was just like me, before we knew. I have a thing about burrowing in my blankets. Eventually we got her to wake up - the poor ultrasound tech was having a hard time getting all the images because she kept trying to go back to sleep. The tech got everything she needed and everything looks good. She said it may be a while until I feel everything because my placenta is in a goofy spot but that should fix itself. DH and I figure it's just an excuse to get to have another baby soon - hoping for a boy next time.

My regular OB was on vacation so we saw her NP - who I fell in love with and would see again if I had to, it's so nice to have a good back-up. Anyway, she said knowing that it's a girl explains a few things. The timing of when I started getting sick is when our little princess started making her own estrogen and that's what's really making me sick. She says with my history of only being able to tolerate the low dose birth control pills it's not surprising that my body would react this way. Before they told me it was GERD severe acid issues - which didn't really make sense considering the only types of food I've consistently been able to keep down is spicy Thai food and Mexican food.

Then when I went into more detail about the migraine issues I've been having she said we should try a physical therapist - she was looking at my history of neck issues and she thinks that may be part of what's making it so bad. Not to mention the extra female hormones which aren't helping anything.

Everything else was great - our little princess (as DH calls her) is doing great and we couldn't be more thankful.

Notes:
I learned this weekend OJ/orange anything is a giant no, no - had a not so pleasant Christmas Eve because of it.
Sorry, I won't share photos - I'm sort of a freak about privacy and have a hard enough time justifying posting here.
DH thinks it's crazy that Thai, Mexican, and anything lemon are so wonderful - he said, "any food battle you girls are going to win." He hates, lemon and does mild as opposed to spicy Thai.

Congratulations! What an adorable ultrasound!
I've also been sick and had an addiction to Mexican food even more than usual....hmm. Maybe I'm having a girl.

My OB had her suspicions about the baby being a girl because of the timing I started getting sick - I didn't actually start to vomit until about 12 weeks or so. She said it's far more common to be super sick with a girl than a boy. But who knows! I'll be excited to know when you find out.

Thank you everyone!!
