And the winner is...

Girl!
Yes we are having a girl, well, as far was we know we are.

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 21 weeks exactly

Size of Baby: 10 1/2 inches, 12 oz.

Total Weight Gain: 15 lbs. I'm a little embarrassed about this, but then people keep telling me I'm not even showing, so I must be really good at hiding it all!

Maternity Clothes: A couple of things, but I'm in the in between stage where my normal clothes are getting pretty uncomfortable, but the maternity clothes are still too big.

Gender: GIRL

Food Cravings: I guess I'm just weird because I'm really not craving anything, except for chocolate maybe, but that's pretty normal for me!

What I miss: coffee! especially now that school has started. Coffee has been a part of my morning routine since I was a freshman in high school! But it's okay, it's a small sacrifice.

Sleep: lots of sleep is good. I still don't get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. I'm not sure this is a good thing, but no bladder infections so far.

Symptoms: I'm pretty tired still, mostly with school starting. My back and hips ache sometimes, I think the shifting and separating has begun. Random hiccups, lots of them, is this normal?? It's kind of embarrassing at times.

Best Moment of the Week: Of course finding out what we're having. Seeing the heart in the ultra-sound. It's pretty amazing when you think that is probably the only good look at our babies heart anyone will ever have, unless she'll ever have to have an EKG or something. And John finally got to feel her kicking around! She's been a real mover and a shaker the past few days

What I'm Looking Forward to: right now I'm just trying to live in the moment, knowing that life is going to continue to change in the next few months and beyond!

Her little profile
And my not so little profile (I know this isn't a very good picture but John wasn't home to take it, so it was the best I could do)!

So excited for you guys!! (I think the Kettleson relatives might get a little over excited about a GIRL.) :) Cute little tummy you have there!

You are so CUTE! And random hiccups - well that brought back some memories. And I barely ever had to get up to pee, even at the end, unless she was stepping on my bladder. What about decaf coffee? AND YAY for Claire having a BFF!
