I'm Baaaaaack!

What a vacation!
It was very much needed.
It was lovely.
It was grand.
Quite an Adventure.
But I am glad to be home and sleeping in my own bed.
More on THAT later....

I have kept you in the dark long enough!

Its time to reveal if Baby Gardner is a
BOY or a GIRL!

Well we are THRILLED to announce that we are having a.....


Like I said, we are THRILLED!

I thought for sure it was a boy.
Gavin thought it was a girl.
I was shocked when I was wrong.
{You know, because I am NEVER wrong.}
That was a joke.

We almost left the doc's office not knowing.
Our baby girl sure is modest.
I guess thats a good thing. :)

How far along? 19 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Thats weird because according to ONE doc's office, I gained two pounds. The OTHER office said I gained 3. Who knows?
Maternity clothes? Still just rockin' the leggings & sweats most days. I sometimes have to tie a hair tie to my button on my jeans.
Sleep: Most nights its good. I think I will be needed a body pillow soon though! Doc says I cant sleep on my back after 20 weeks. One more week before THAT adventure starts.
Best moment this week: The thought that its actually a girl is sinking in more and more
Miss Anything? Energy lol
Movement: Not yet.
Food cravings: I have craved sweets like crazy. :) And Strawberries. Yum. I especially crave strawberry limeades from Sonic.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just the THOUGHT of Mexican food USED to make me want to hurl, but I am getting over that. I FINALLY can have me some Cafe Rio again!
Have you started to show yet: Yup
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In-- well its weird. Its half in, half out. haha.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, most of the time. :)
Looking forward to: Feeling her move for the first time. I was hoping the fireworks at Disney World would startle her enough for me to feel something. But alas, nada. Hopefully soon though!
Names picked out? We have a few we like but we want to meet her first!

Again, we are THRILLED.

Oh, Happy New Year Everyone!
See ya in 2012!
