BLESSED!!!!!

I tell ya, I am a bit overwhelmed writing a journal entry today.  So many wonderful things have happened to us so far and 2010 has finally just turned out to be our year.  If anyone is reading this and they feel like it will never happen for them, just please, please keep your faith - DON'T GIVE UP!!!  It will happen, it will! God has a plan for all of us.  It's just that for some of us, He tests us and I think it's to make us stronger.
Today is 20 weeks for us and everything thus far, besides the little bleeding I had in the beginning, has been perfect.  The 20 week u/s was PERFECT!  All measurements are perfect and the last non-invasive test for spina bifada came out completely normal.  So we had the u/s at 8 am yesterday morning and told the tech to write the babys sex and seal in an envelope.  She said what she wrote was definite.  I searched and searched on the screen while she was doing the u/s and couldn't see anything!  We had dinner reservations for a really nice fondue place at 9:30.  We went early in hopes to get seated early because we were so excited.  Then we were like "when should we open the envelope?" and our waiter was like "how about now."  So Ian handed me the envelope and I opened and it read BOY!  My mouth almost hit the ground because I just felt deep down it was a girl.  I was shocked.  Then he laughed and said "okay I'll give you the real envelope" and handed me another envelope.  So I opened the REAL envelope and it's said "It's a Girl!"  That was not a nice joke he played on me but I totally fell for it.  He knew how positive I was that it would be a girl.  I was actually shaken up because I was so shocked!  But WE'RE HAVING A GIRL!!!!!  We are so beyond happy.  I just knew deep down it was going to be a girl.  And I was right!  So on our way home we called and texted all our family and friends.  They were all anxiously waiting for the news. 
I just can't believe how the time is flying now.  Half way already.  I'm going in a few weeks to register and my sister is already bugging me for a guest list for the baby shower.  It's just so hard to really believe this is happening and I am truly going to be a mother soon.  It's really becoming a reality.  I mean I see the baby on the u/s screen, but until I hold my baby girl in my hands, it will all really be true.  Again, feeling so overwhelmed but so overjoyed.
