Is it a boy or a girl?

Well, Mama’s intuition was right! IT’S A GIRL! The boys are so excited. It’s almost like no one believes it! This time around I was able to take the blood test called Maternity 21 which checks for a wide range of things in baby, among them, the gender and find out earlier than the 20 week ultrasound. Doctors say the test is over 90% accurate so I feel pretty confident that the results are correct. I was really excited to find out the gender because I have been so sick. I am ALWAYS sick when pregnant. With my boys I threw up all day every day for 6 months straight, with both boys. This time around is even worse. I am experiencing migraines for the first time in my life and I am so sick I can barely make it to work. It’s been a real challenge to work full time and be on television and having to eat all kinds of creations, have two kids and be pregnant but I’m doing the best I can do! Baby girl may be a trouble-maker! There is a little bit of a backstory that makes the fact that she’s a girl even more special.

Many years ago, 7 to be exact, I was shopping with my first baby (he was about 4 months old at the time) and I found this sweet baby girl outfit. I don’t know why but I just loved it. With no future babies in the works at the time, I did what any normal person would do…bought the outfit anyway and hung it in the back of my closet. Totally normal reaction I’m sure! A few months later, I found out I was expecting again and it wasn’t a girl. I didn’t care! I was excited about my two boys and I didn’t think much about the baby girl outfit (even though it hung in my closet where I could glance at it every single day for 7 years). I guess I assumed that one day it would be put to good use by someone (if not me) and I wasn’t going to let go of it. I’m so happy I hung onto it. I guess somehow I always knew I’d need it. I’ll certainly need it come June when we welcome our first baby girl. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
