Mexican food does not agree with me

Normally, I like to eat mexican food or american mexican food, anyway. Eating a veggie burrito bowl at Chipotle is one of my favorite things to do.

However, ever since I got pregnant, I've realized that I can't do that anymore. I first tried to eat at Chipotle in the first trimester. I had such a bad case of gas that I did not eat any mexican food for a long time.

Now that I'm in the middle of my 2nd trimester, I thought I'd take another shot at it yesterday since there was a new Chipotle near my office. Boy, oh, boy - was that a mistake!! I was mostly fine yesterday but since today morning, I have had a very bad case of heartburn and acid reflux.

I've learned my lesson - no more mexican food for the rest of this pregnancy!

  4. We have a beautiful house
  5. We have good health insurance

It's a girl!!

We had the ultrasound last week and found out it was a girl!! Most important of all, she's healthy and growing just as she ought to be.

My husband and I were both in shock - our parents were both so convined (gut feelings) that it was going to be a boy that in our minds, we had gotten convinced ourselves. Not that we particularly cared much if it was going to be a boy or a girl - we welcomed either.

But we were really excited to find out it was a girl and see her in the ultrasound. Since we didn't have the 1st trimester ultrasound, it was an amazing experience to see her moving and kicking. We even got to see her sucking her thumb. As the ultrasound technician started to get ready, my husband took a hold of my hand. I was surprised because I hadn't expected it. Then as we started to see her, I was so excited and happy and I started to squeeze his hand tight - . As I was watching her, I felt a couple of tears slide out of my eyes - it's an emotional experience.

We're so happy and have started to check out baby girl names.. :)
