It's a Girl!!! Praise God!!

Read my bible last night for comfort....this passage literally jumped out at me:

Job 5:17-18

“Blessed is the man whom God corrects;
so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.
For he wounds, but he also binds up;
he injures, but his hands also heal."

I feel so blessed and so undeserving. Thank you Lord.

I had to fast for 8 hours then have my blood drawn (I'm SUCH a coward with having blood drawn!!) and my vein collapsed right before the last tube so they had to stick me again. Ugh!
Then I had to drink some icky 50 grams of glucose drink and then the doctor came in and did an ultrasound. I was certain it was going to be a boy! But nope...there she was...Doc pointed out her little girly bump and said he was absolutely certain. (He has been doing this for over 30 years!).
Her heart was 152bpm, her legs were stretched out, and she must have been sleeping because all I saw her do was twitch her leg a little and move her foot.
Soooo precious!!
I'm having a girl?? Wow!!!
Thank you Jesus!!!!

Called my husband and told him and he called everyone else.
I'm so excited and still a little in shock! :)

I failed my glucose test...they pricked my finger before I left and it was 143 so I have the 3 hour test to look forward to next time...but that is also when the "Big Ultrasound" is scheduled for and I can bring a DVD and everything so I'm still happy!!

Wow. A daughter!
