21 week ultrasound

Well-it is officially a girl! We had out 21 week ultrasound today and everything checked out. I'm going to post of some pics of our little girl. She was pretty active at the beginning and then chilled out towards the end. She was lying with her legs up above her head for most of it and she had she arms up over her head. Which is how I lay out by the pool, so at least we know she is comfortable and relaxed in there.
I worked on our registry for a bit as well, adding things and taking things off. Also, looked at adorable clothes. Rufflebutts.com is my new obsession. They are ruffled bloomers to cover diapers and are the cutest things ever! I might have to order something for our little girl!
So, it has been a big baby day here. Can't wait to get the crib and dresser soon and pick a paint color. If you see Carl on the street try and talk him into pink!

21 weeks!

Another week down! So far, so good. I feel like I'm huge of course but I think that is normal. Had to buy my first pain of maternity jeans, not used to them yet. They are really stretchy but I guess that is a good thing, I'll get longer use from them.
I think I have felt some kicking as well. Feels like someone is blowing bubbles in my stomach! I took a prenatal yoga class today and during the relaxation portion at the end of class, she was going crazy in my stomach. Guess she was enjoying all the movement and stretching and wanted me to get up and move more!
This week we have our ultrasound at the doctors and we'll find out if it is 100% a girl since the 15 week 3D ultrasound was a little early to show gender.
Then, we are heading to VA for an engagement party on Friday and Charlottesville Saturday to visit friends, family and see a football game. I am so excited for next weekend, hopefully, the work week will fly by!

I haven't posted in forever!
Today I am making it to my first prenatal yoga class! Super excited.
Carl and I spent the morning moving some furniture (nothing heavy) to make the office a playroom. Still in the beginning stages but it should start to come together in a few weeks. We desperately need to have a yard sale and downsize. Movies, books, DVD's it all has to go.
Overall, we are preparing for our 1st little baby, I'm now 20 weeks and def. showing, the baby is the size of a banana.
I'm feeling much better but still tired. The past 2 months have flown by, it's been wonderful having the cooler weather, we are going to look up and it's going to be Christmas!
