It's a.....

Girl!!!!  I swear, I should play the lottery or become a psychic!


Don't ask me what we're looking at here.  I'm still in a state of shock, I think.  She said something about three lines and the arrow is pointing to those and it's a girl.  I'll take her word for it.

So, I guess I can introduce to the world Caroline "Cece" Cooper Branham.  I wish I had gotten Josh's face because it was priceless.  Both of us are still in complete shock about it being official.

Since I just had a gender scan, I didn't meet with the doctor or anything.  This is a total aside and I apologize for the TMI but did any other mommies out there get red, VERY painful lumps on or under their breasts?  I'm sorry to be so blunt but I can't think of a more polite way of asking.  Seriously, I may die from the pain.  I got one last time around and it just went away...something about an abscess?  All I know is this thing woke me up at 2:00 a.m. and I had a terrible time falling back asleep!

Okay, sorry about being so personal.  But I thought maybe one of y'all could help me?!?!?

  5. Try something like Gold Bond under your boobs and see if that helps. Also, if they ooze or do anything else gross, get thee to a doctor (sometimes it's an indication of staph infection).
    Oh, and so excited for you and Josh! Caroline is a terrific name--just ask my sister Caroline!

  6. Congratulations! This is so, so, so exciting. Since your kids are so close together it's nice that they are different genders. Maybe (hopefully) that will reduce some of the competition that siblings can have. Oliver is going to be such a good big brother. I just know it. And I looooove her name!
