Thank you all! We are still kinda shocked and in disbelief!

What's amazing is this will be the first girl in Chris's family in forever! All his cousins are boys and he is 1 of 3 boys! Yay!

We are over the moon, literally...

We're headed over to tell his folks now! We are so excited!!!

Congrats! I love that face shot! I was reminded of how exciting it was when I was pregnant with Colin and we'd just found out what he was, and we picked out everything when I read this. Either your excitement is really showing through or I'm extra hormonal today Not as exciting with the second since we won't be buying anything new but clothes, and it's just not the same as first baby excitement imo

Congratulations! The pictures are awesome! I am so envious of you ladies that can get 3D and 4D ultrasounds. I live so far out in the sticks my ob doesn't have one. Oh well, I was still thankful for the one I got.

Tara, I am SHOCKED! I was so sure this baby was a boy. I was only drawn towards boy clothes, loved calling the baby boy names (like Marco!), and was CONVINCED that it wasn't a girl. Shows how off my mom-dar was! I couldn't believe it!

When we were at the place and the tech said, "...and she's a girl!" my jaw dropped and I looked at Chris (who was squeezing my hand tight - SO happy!) and I repeated incredulously, "She's a GIRL?!?" It was so exciting! I couldn't believe it!

I don't know if I mentioned this to you guys before, but DH and I were actually trying for a girl - we timed DTD according to the shettles method and everything, so this is just AMAZING!
