Hi everyone! I hope everyone has been well since my last check-in. At least this time I'm under a month since updates.

I am happy to report that we have been doing lots of planning and preparing for baby since my last post since we finally found out what we're having!!! My second ultrasound was much more successful. The tech was able to get all of the necessary shots and the baby was being much more cooperative, although it was still being a bit stubborn! Thankfully the tech didn't give up and we finally got to see between the legs. When we did, the tech let us know that the baby is, with out a doubt, A GIRL!!! We are so, so excited! I had a feeling it was a girl from the very begining, so it was nice to know I was right!

We have decided to name our little princess Sofia Elizabeth. Elizabeth is my middle name, so I thought it would be kind of special to use that as her middle name. Here are some pictures of Miss Sofia.


Foot - I just love this one!

And the "it's a girl" shot!

We have already gotten busy with the nursery. I've got the furniture ordered and some of the decorative items already bought. I spent the past two weekends doing my registries, which was really fun. Later on today I am going to go pick our paint colors. I can't wait to post some pictures as we make more progress!

Thankfully, my exhaustion seems to be getting better. I am still pretty tired, but it's not near as bad as it was about a month ago. I feel like I can finally make it through work without almost falling asleep at my desk. Unfortunatley, work has been crazy lately and I've been working longer hours than normal. I didn't get home before 7:00 at all this past week, which I really don't like. I'm hoping the coming weeks will be better, but I have a feeling this is how its going to be up until my maternity leave.

I am still sick a few nights a week, but it's really not too bad. I've got some strong heartburn that hits about 6:00 every day, but that's easily kept under control with Zantac. The most difficult thing now is that I've developed pregnancy-induced Carpal Tunnel. Thankfully, it isn't painful, but it is resulting in hand numbness. My right had goes numb if I do something continuously (like typing, writing, holding a glass, talking on the phone). My left hand however, is numb all.the.time. It's really starting to bother me and I am so worried that my right hand is most likely going to follow suit. Who would have thought my most difficult pregnancy symptom would be a numb hand?!

Overall, things are going great, though. I still feel like I've had a pretty easy pregnancy so I can't complain. I'm feeling lots of movement from Sofia now, which is so amazing. I can't believe I only have a few more days until Viability (24 weeks) and I only have about 16 weeks until my due date!

Yeah for a baby girl! I am finding that dressing a girl for Disney is so much more fun! I can't wait to see the nursery. Glad that you are feeling better but having numbness is no fun.

Yay for a girl!!!!
I love the name too! It is special to share middle names I think giving a child a first or middle name after someone special or yourselves will make them feel special too <3

I am glad that your pregnancy is not totally draining anymore- it's good I get your sleep in now before little princess comes and that all changes!!! Hahahaha

I am so happy for you and Miguel!!! You are both going to be great parents :D

I love the name you have chosen for your little girl!

Glad to hear you are feeling a little less tired but the pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel sucks!!

I can't wait to hear more about your October trip.
