Best News EVER (to a pregnant woman)

My due date is OVER THREE WEEKS SOONER than I thought it was all this time. I thought the pregnancy was 18wks 2 days, but I just found out at the sonogram yesterday that it is 21wks 4 days. Seriously, how awesome is that?! I couldn't stop laughing with giddiness of the news, to the point that I think the sonogram lady thought I was a little unfit to be bringing life into this world. Maybe even Rob is wondering. But I think any pregnant woman would back me on my over-the-top reaction.

If I could sell something like "subtract 3 weeks from your pregnancy" on Ebay, I'll bet it would go for enough money to start up a Taco Bell and Titos Tacos and Beto's in Stockholm in order to put an end to the cravings I've endured without them during this pregnancy. During the last week, I recall at least 4 nights with very realistic dreams about me and Mexican food. One was a nightmare where I was chewing out a worker at Taco Bell because I had been waiting around for hours for an order of a tostada and nachos supreme, while they handed out food to everyone else, and then they told me they were all out. I woke up Rob with my yelling.

Okay, and now on to other news I am ecstatic's a GIRL! We've been calling the baby Chilla for a long time (long story), but now that we know it is a she, her name is Ella. I know that news should come first, but the fact is I was expecting it to be a girl or a boy and either case would have left me on cloud nine. The first news was totally a surprise and I have since had to figure out alternate explanations to happenings with my body that led me to definitively think I was not pregnant in October when in fact I was. Anyway...I guess I ought to leave it at that although I would love to chat more because it really was quite surprising. The new due date is July 16th. Rob will tell you July 22nd because that is what the ultrasound lady said, but the ultrasound lady contradicted herself and made a mistake. I'm sure we will be making a bet about who is right very soon and I will be winning all sorts of back and foot massage time out of it, thank you very much ultrasound lady.

Congratulations on a baby girl! Don't listen to all the people who are now going to be telling you how much harder girls are then boys. As a mother of 3 girls and 1 boy, personally I think girls are way easier. Ok they can be a little emotional but over all they are easier. I realize I might change my mind when they are teenagers but as far as little kids go . . . just for example my girls will sit quietly and happily coloring for hours my little guy will dump out all the crayons and then color for 10 seconds before moving on to make a mess somewhere else.

Lorena we are so excited for you guys! July is a great time to have a baby (Annika is a July b-day) and I can't blame you for wanting to call the child Ella. :-)

I'm not sure if I'm more excited that you're having a little girl, are due three weeks earlier than you thought, or that I get to see you in two days. It's probably the later, but all around it's really exciting!

Yay! Congrats, how exciting!

haha, oh Lorena - 3 weeks?! awesome! And I am dying over your Mexican food cravings - you crave it hard enough when you aren't prego, haha.

So exciting! Girls are fun. Boys are fun. It's fun to have both. ;) You'll laugh at how different they are from the get go. And, you'll really laugh when she actually wants to sit down and play (like what Audrey said) while you're boy is going 90 miles/hour. It's cute.

WOW WOW WOW that is FABULOUS news to a prego! Congrats - a girl, how fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So exciting! You're even getting comments in Swedish now! Have you decided on a middle name? I'll need to know this for my next needle point project. Or, in keeping with my tradition, I could just say "Chilla".

I am so excited that our girls will be only 2 months apart! Yay! Now to just get Rob to change his job so you live close to me and our kids will be BFF's! And your Mexican food dreams are a crack up! Being without it during pregnancy is for sure a sick form of torture.

Hurray, it's a girl! I am so excited for you. She is so lucky to have a mom like you!

Hone  – (8:10 AM)

HOoray! I am thrilled for you and your little girl. Must admit though, I don't know that Ella is quite as cool as Dayna but I guess it is your baby! I can't believe that you will have two babies by the time I see you next!!! Love you, dayna
