Aww hell, I knew the sex before the entry anyway. It pays to be friends in real life.

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you guys (either way.)

Molly...all rubbing it in!!

Congrats to your precious little family. She looks beautiful.

And can I just say that now when I look at the ultrasound pictures of Babboo and compare them to what he looked like as a baby, they look the EXACT same. It's weird to think that your sweet little baby girl is living inside of your expanding belly.

It really is amazing.

And Frema and Luke, thanks for sharing this ultra personal time with us, a bunch of strangers.

Congratulations! I'm soooo excited for you! Little girls are so much fun! (Of course, I'm biased but you get what I'm saying.)

Congrats!!! And Congrats again!!!

Congrats! "Seeing" the baby on the monitor makes it all very, very real. Congrats again to you and Luke!

I can't help it. I cried. I am so excited for you and Luke and this precious little third member of your family. Congratulations, Frema!!

Let's call her Freka. I like that it is like a little play on Frema and she's destined to be a miniature version of you.

I just had a feeling all day that it was a girl! AHHHH I'm so happy for you!!! YAAAAY!!! I like Freka!

I'm voting for Freka since that's how I read it anyway.

Congratulaions, Frema family! A beautiful girl she is!

Congratulations! I texted Lizzy and she also sends congratulations to you and Luke. And your beautiful daughter. I vote for Freka.

Awww, congratulations guys!!!

YAY!!!! Congrats Frema!!

AWE.SOME. Congrats to you and Luke!

GIRL GIRL GIRL GIRL GIRL GIRL!! Woohoo! Congratulations. I'm so excited for you.
(Molly, go sit your ass in time out missy. That was just mean.)
I like Freka. It's Frema with a little Luke which is exaclty what this little girl is. (Not that Luke only had a small part, Freka could look like a spitting image of Luke, you get what I'm saying, right?)
Oh Luke...boy are you in trouble.

She's due on my birthday! Hurray!

I cry easy but still, when you said you cried,I swallowed my food and cried too. Oh my, what a relief.

Congratulations "Frema" and Luke. Such an exciting time for you both. Welcome to parenthood. Hold on for the ride of your life.

p.s. I have a boy and a girl. Both have their own joys and challenges.

Oh boy, a Girl! Ditto all of the above excitement!

So, when are you going to post the link to your Babies-R-Us registry so you can be inundated with girly gifties from the internets? (If you can do that without revealing personal information like real names and address, etc?)

I was going to suggest Frekee, but I think I like Freka better.

A daughter. How wonderful.


OH! Congratulations!! I, personally, think you should called her Fremette, as in miniature girly little Frema.

Congrats! Seeing my baby during our 13-week ultrasound was the most magical experience of my life, and even the two ultrasounds I had after that didn't give me quite the same HIGH...

It truly is spectacular.

Boy for me, girl for you. Awesome!

How exciting to find out!!! I also am voting for Freka.

Congrats! Now you get to go wild with the pink and purple! Woohoo!

I knew it! Congratulations!!

I always got nervous before our ultrasounds, too (having twins meant an u/s every month), but everything was always fine.

Isn't it the most amazing feeling in the world?! Just wait until you hold her for the first time...

So happy for you!

Congratulations!!!!! I am so happy for you and Luke (and little Freka)

I think Freke is still kind of great, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

I was anxiously waiting for the report when I left work, but I guess it was still a bit early. I'm just now getting to sit down and check in on you after putting Alliclaus down for her nap.

Congratulations! Girl babies are great!

YAY!!! I called girl! So excited. Now, I'll go back and read the rest of the entry. Are you going to reveal possible names?

Congratulations! And....I told ya I have the power!

Yay! Girls are so much fun!!

What about Luma??


YAY!! Go crazy with all the pink and purple! Buy barrettes and ponytails holders and headbands!! Congrats :)

I vote for Freka!

Hey, I am the one who grabbed those tissues for you. I was multitasking, just so you know. I also first suggested "Freka," so NAH! OK, I am done tooting my own horn now.

Also, I think that last picture you posted is the one you thought looked like a teddy bear when it was on the ultrasound screen.

I've been lurking for a while since I discovered you through the grand dame of blogging, Amalah.

Congratulations on a successful ultrasound and a baby girl to boot!

I too am pregnant (due Nov. 30) and have been excited to find someone who is going through the same experience at the same time. We had our ultrasound on Tuesday but opted not to find out the sex. Seeing that little wiggling body on screen left me in tears as well.

Best of luck to you and Luke!

Yay!!! I am so excited for you! Maybe it's just because I really really really want a baby girl someday, but I'm always hoping internet mommies-to-be will have girls. So thanks for having a girl! (I know you did it mostly to please me.)

I, too, vote for Freka. I think it's perfect.

I almost cried when I read the words "my daughter." And by "almost" I mean "totally would have if I weren't at work." Your DAUGHTER! How amazing is that to think about?! I am so happy for you guys!

Congratulations! What a magical day for you two, with many, many more to come.


Congratulations on having a sweet little girl!!!!! I am so excited for both of you!!!! Pink and purple clothes and butterflies and hearts and all that stuff, yaaaaaaaay!

I love her too.
Grandma Molly

I'm going with Freka, just because it was Luke's suggestion (apparently!). Congratulations! You must've had a feeling it was going to be a girl, at least judging from your last post. No more drab yellows and greens! Yay for pinks and purples! Can you believe little Freka will be here before Christmas? I knew I should've bought those "baby's first Christmas" outfits when they were on clearance in January...

Freka. All the way.

I want you to know that I was on the Staten Island Expressway and BAWLED when Liza texted me to tell me it was a girl.

And I also confessed to Liza that I was sure you were having a boy. So, your little Freka once again confirms that I am not to be trusted with gender guessing. I've only been right once. Out of, like, a hundred.

Congratulations Frema and Luke. Your sweet Freka is loved by many, but none as much as by her wonderful parents.

And congrats to the grandparents-to-be as well!

yay!!! CONGRATS! Oh my goodness, you just took me back to our u/s day... I'm all teary eyed now!!! SO EXCITING!!!

A girl! How exciting! Congrats!!!

I started reading you when Isabel told everyone how awesome TLF was (she was so right, totally addictive!). Congratulations on your baby girl!

Odd woman out here, but I vote for Frekette. I was going to suggest it, thinking it was all clever, until I got to the end and saw that you'd already thought of it. That's what I get for reading in the proper order -- I'm going back to reading the last page of the book first!


I like Freka. Reminds me of Abba, ha.

CONGRATULATIONS. Baby girl looks awesome.

MJD sent me. Congratulations on the coming arrival; many blessings to you!

Aww, a beautiful baby girl. I'm so happy for you both! Congratulations!!

I would have read to the end of the post, no matter what. ;)

Try to hold out until December 11 so Freka and I can share a birthday!

Yea, baby girls are wonderful. Joy of joys.

Oh, I'm so happy for you! Congratulations...she is adorable already!

Awwww, you guys. I vote for Freka. Congrats on your little baby girl!!

OK, so I am the 50th person to comment, but the wishes are just the same! I am very happy for you guys and cannot wait to see you soon. Hopefully before the birth. I am so excited for you guys. You're going to be a great mom to your new little daughter! I can't wait to see the pictures of her upon her arrival!

I'm visiting via 'grandma molly' and just wanted to add my congratulations. This is such an exciting time for you all.
