It's a GIRL! Kestlee Marie Stoddart... Can't wait to meet ya!

So..... we are having a GIRL!!!! I've had the name picked out since... well... like 7 yrs ago.. So if you don't like it I don't care... cuz as soon as I heard it I knew its what I wanted to name my girl if I had one... thankfully Danny (says he) likes it... so I finally get to use it!
I'm a little excited... I would have been happy with either obviously... it would have been cute to have Carter have a little bro close to his age... and I'm sure Danny would've had a blast... BUT... when I'm pregnant I'm miserable and don't even want to THINK about having another child after this... but of course if it was a boy I know I'd want to give it at least one more try ;) It's nice to have the pressure off me ;) I'm not one of those "Oh I love being pregnant!" people... I'm miserable for about 85% of the time.
Anyhew... I kept thinking it was gonna be a girl... this pregnancy has been SOOO different than with Carter. I've been even sicker... it's been much better lately... I only *think* about throwing up every few hours instead of actually doing the deed.
With Carter all I wanted was veggies with dip and fruit... and tons of ICE COLD, bottled water. I still crave the uber cold water... but this chick wants the fatty stuff like no one's business. Stuff I don't even like to eat a ton of. And SODA. She wants her soda. I had to drive to Chipotle today for lunch... (I normally do NOT like Chipotle... turns out this baby prefers Qdoba too... but she thought she wanted Chipotle...)
I never got much cravings with Carter at all that I just had to get right that second... maybe the mcdonalds ice cream cones... but I can't blame that solely on the baby.. I did that sometimes when I'm not pregnant. This girl wants something... she demands it.
I can't eat Chicken... any form. I hate the smell of it. I don't want to look at it. I have to make Carter Chicken nuggets since its one of the only meats he'll eat... but I hold my breath and sit far away til it's gone.
She's already kicking like CRAZY. She wouldn't stand still at the ultrasound. Danny thought I was hallucinating when a week or so ago I told him I could feel the baby kicking. The guy that did the ultrasound just laughed when he was trying to get a still pic... he was like... "Can you feel the kicking yet? Cuz this baby is MOVING like CRAAZY!" (in a brazillian accent... he was from Brazil but whiter than me... and being from Brazil he of course made a reference that I better start liking soccer).
Anyhew.. we are super excited and can't wait to meet our Kestlee Marie Stoddart!!

I'm so happy for you! She will be a babe! My little guy was moving around so much that I was worried they wouldn't be able to see his peepee... That's exactly what I want... One boy and then a girl! If we get a boy next time we'll try once more... But I only really want 2 kids! Can't wait to see what she looks like! Glad you're feeling a little better!
