It's a............

GIRL!!!!

That's right. Another little princess will be joining our family. Her name will be Addison Brooke.

The ultrasound showed that all looks great. Get this...even my placenta is in the "right" place!!!! Yay, God!!! I've given lots of prayer to that specifically. With Audrey I had placenta previa, so the doctor was fairly certain that I would have the same with this one. Praise the Lord, that looks okay.

I am now 20 weeks along and there is no doubt I am pregnant. Miss Addison is beginning to move around much more now. I'm not quite what I would describe as uncomfortable yet, but I am noticing that everyday tasks are becoming more difficult.

According to the websites, she is about the size of a cantaloupe. Kind of strange to think about that. At the ultrasound, Addison weighed approximately 13 ounces.

From Babycenter.com:
Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel . (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.) He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system.

Audrey seems excited about having a baby sister. She called most of my family to tell them the good news. She was so cute saying "I'm gonna have a baby sister". I'm not sure how much of it she understands, but I know she will be a wonderful big sister.

My next appointment I will have to do the glucose tolerance test to check for gestational diabetes (which I had when I was pregnant with Audrey). I am praying that this time I will not have to worry about that.

Thank you for all your prayers and encouragement! It is greatly appreciated.

Yay! Anna told us yesterday. As excited as she was coming down the hall, you would have thought it was her! I am excited for you, and glad to see that things are going well!

Congratulations! We are having another girl too. And I had placenta previa with Sibley, but I don't look like I'll have it this time either. Lots of blessings...
