August 11, 2005-I think George is a girl

I now firmly believe George is a girl. I think the reason I kept going back and forth before was because deep down I knew it was a girl, but was hoping for a boy. There's no doubt in my mind that it's a girl, though. I haven't wavered much on that in the last couple days, so I feel pretty confident in my statement.

There was nothing really concrete that happened that sent me to this conclusion. I just kind of accepted it, I guess. Don't get me wrong, I'm not disappointed in the least, I think it just finally hit me. There was one thing, though. I have been extremely, extremely emotional the last few days. I know it's just a pregnant thing, but I don't remember being this emotional this early with Marcus. Of course, that was six years ago, so who really knows how I was. Well, Marc does, I'm sure. ha!

I feel like George's girlness is seeping through and that's why I'm getting so emotional lately. I've cried more in the last few days than I have in the last five months! It could just be pregnant hormones, but maybe not.

I've even started seriously looking at girl names on the web. Before, I wouldn't even consider girl names. But I wasn't forcing myself either. I don't know, maybe George is a boy. hahahaha! I'm seriously going with girl. I'm gonna owe my sister lunch!

August 16, 2005-It's a girl!

Well, today was the big day we had been waiting for. I had the BIG ultrasound this morning (slept like crap last night!) and found out what my gut has been telling me almost all along. George is a girl! It was very obvious. Even got to see her pee! That was weird.

Overall, baby is measuring where she should be, so that's comforting especially since my sugars have been so completely out of whack this last month. I really, really want to eat something bad today, but so far I've resisted. I even parked my car in front of the building instead of in our lot in anticipation of going to get a candy bar later. But, I haven't gone and I think I've talked myself out of it. If I had had more cash in my wallet, I would have taken myself out to lunch today. I think I'm saving myself in a way because I'm planning to make cookies tonight-we're having guests at work tomorrow.

Not to mention that we had lunch out yesterday to celebrate a new guy at work, had dinner out last night, will have lunch out tomorrow for the work guests, and will probably have dinner out on Thursday since hubby's car broke down last weekend when he was traveling with his brother and now it's two hours away and we're going to pick it up on Thursday.

ANYWAY. I'm 23 weeks 5 days today and I already feel like I'm waddling! I don't remember waddling with the other two, but I'm sure I did. Actually, my left leg joint has been bothering me for two days. It's definitely not blood clot, which didn't dawn on me until this morning, but is uncomfortable. Marc thinks my hips are spreading already, but I don't think that's it, especially since it hurts up front and not on the side, which is where it hurt toward the end of my other pregnancies.
