It's A.... Stomach Bug!

Hi! Everything is fine; sorry I didn't post the news last night, but I didn't even get home from the ultrasound, which was in a city almost two hours away, until eleven thirty at night. There was all sorts of chaos, including my sister, who was with me, getting sick on the way home, and my mom being hospitalized with food poisoning and/or pancreatitis while we were gone. Luckily we had the two older kids with us to make all the driving in the fog/rain and the alarming phone calls and the puking on the side of the road extra fun!

But.

It is a girl. :)

And I have some adorable pictures of her sweet little face to scan and post as soon as I get the kids settled with my sister and then leave to visit my mom in the hospital, and bring Sprite to my OTHER sister, the barfy one, who also got violently ill last night! And I did mention that our entire family eventually got the barfing flu after I did, and so I feel really guilty for apparently spreading my flu to every single one of my relatives?

AND I should mention that the ultrasound tech did a bunch of measurements and that she was finding me to be seventeen weeks along, not sixteen, which would be concurrent with my EDD based on the date of my last cycle but which is obviously a week off from the gestational dating ultrasound, which was done pretty early. The tech last night said sometimes in women with tipped uteruses (which I have, pretty severely) it's not uncommon to have trouble getting the gestational age right at the beginning because of where the embryo is or something? I don't know. I just know that one week disappearing before my eyes felt a little alarming! Guess we'll see what's what at my twenty (or twenty one!) week scan.
