Shy baby!

On Monday, Jan. 26, I had a scheduled ultrasound. This was to determine the size and measurements of the baby . At the end of the ultrasound I asked to see if we could figure out the sex; the nurse tried but couldn't tell, he/she had it's back to us. We could only see the back of the head, back and little butt... ;) I guess we have a shy baby : 0 ); either that or it was sleeping!

Guess we'll have to wait. We did get all the pictures printed out of the baby though. I really just wanted one picutre for me to update my collection. They ended up giving me 3- 8 x 10 pages of all the pictures they had just taken. Not what I expected, but very blessed to get it. It was kinda hard to tell what the pictures were of but it is still neat to have.

I guess we can say this was the baby's first photo session. ( Of many ; ))

A couple days later I had another Dr. appt. Had the normal blood test, got measured and I got to hear the baby's heartbeat again. I wish I could hear it all day long!
I started to feel the baby move a couple weeks ago. For all you mom's out there, you know how amazing this feeling is. At first I wasn't sure if it was gas or the baby... ;) I'm now 17 weeks pregnant! Only 24 weeks to go ( as the Dr. reminded me after he measured me).

So you dont feel like there is nothing to see here... I present a picture of my husdands new shirt. He is so cute!!! I heart Him!

A late update!

It has been way too long since I've updated this blog..
so here goes.
Back in the beginning of December I had my 2nd Dr. Apt. James didn't come with me because it was just a normal check up; to my surprise I got another Ultrasound and we got another photo of our baby!

On December 30th, I had another appointment. This time, James was able to come and it was so awesome because we got to hear our baby's heartbeat; what an amazing sound that is!

Since then we have been reading up and learning about what to expect and what to plan for when the baby comes. Anyone that knows my hubby knows he is a planner. I love it too! James finished reading his book and he is really excited.

I've been feeling slight movements lately; that is a crazy feeling, but so precious.

Many people are asking if we know what we are having yet; we don't know yet but I do have an appt on Jan. 26th for an ultrasound. They will be checking the measurements and size of the baby; i'm praying that they will be able to tell us what the sex is. If not, then I think we will have to wait until next month! I really can't wait.. I'm ready to pick out the colors and theme for the baby's room. I guess that is part of being pregnant and beings parents, learning patience.

Well, that is all for now. I'll try to be better with the update next time.

Please pray for our baby as it's growing and forming in my tummy! ; )
