If you guessed boy...

You were wrong! But it's okay, I was wrong too. We're having a baby girl! Joel guessed right. We are so excited, I'm especially excited for all the pink and dresses we get to buy. Or, borrow from my sisters who have girls. Joel's more excited about the clothing from my sisters than shopping. But either way we're so happy! Her official due date is June 23rd (or June 28th depending on which doctor) but she is measuring a bit big, closer to June 18th (which was my original guess). But I guess she'll come when she feels like it. This last month she has gotten very active. I think she rolls around a lot because most of the movements don't really feel like kicks or jabs, they feel more like rolling something across my insides. She loves the sound of Joel's voice. When I get home at night and he starts talking she gets really active. Especially when he is reading the scriptures. She must like the cadence of his voice when he reads. Maybe she'll like reading. That would be neat. She does not really move for me though. She has started responding a little bit when I tap on my tummy, but for the most part she responds to voices. Some of her favorites are: her daddy's voice, male voices with similar tones, Grandma Wenerstrom's voice (we discovered that last Sunday), and someone at work. I think the work voice is Torey, since I'm around her the most. It's fun to see her starting to respond to things. Our last ultrasound she was faceplanted into my back and would not roll over. The ultrasonographer was banding on my tummy where her head was with the ultrasound paddle and she just batted at it with her little hand and reared back with her head but didn't roll over. They have to repeat it so that they can see her face. I was told to drink soda or juice next time so that she'll be awake. We're over the halfway point (I'll be 23 weeks tomorrow) so we get to meet her soon.

Give it another two months and you'll be getting tons of pushes, and not short ones either, but just lots of pressure. Abigail liked to stick her feet up under my ribs. That hurt. Bryant was much kinda though, and he was bigger too. Maybe I was bigger also. It gets more fun. And I'm glad I guessed right! I also wanted a boy first, but I wouldn't trade Abigail (or Bryant, because when I was pregnant with him, I wanted another girl).

It's so fun to hear about your little one! I'm excited that we're both having girls!!! I do hope that they are good friends, it will be fun for them to be the same age. See you soon!

I can't believe I don't remember what I guessed! Well, go figure. :) It's nice to know on the first one--or any of them, actually, I guess. I think I might have guessed girl. I don't remember.

Thanks Nikki, we're excited that she'll have a girl cousin so close to her age too. And Marie, you probably did guess girl! The majority of people who voted voted girl, so I guess most people were right.I didn't really want to know, but Joel wanted to know. But we're excited all the same.
