We're having a.........




We're having a baby girl!!! My parents got me a 3d/4d ultrasound that we went to today, as a gift for my birthday (yesterday). It was so wonderful to see our beautiful baby moving around. She had her legs crossed and up under her bum for quite a while so it took a while to find but baby is 100% a girl! I'm so happy that we found out!  (although all that really matters to Ryan and I is that she is HEALTHY) As far as names go.. We like these 3 a lot: Hannah, Emilee, and Camryn. We can't quite decide yet though...we have some time. Today she was 7 inches long, head to toe. She weighs 5 oz. Her HR was 143bpm and she was measuring right on time for her due date. She has 10 fingers, 10 toes..and she's holding our hearts right in the palm of her itty bitty hands.

Today is the Day

We get to find out if TTT is a boy or a girl today! I can't wait! I asked everyone on facebook if they think baby will be a boy or a girl. So far the vote says:

BOY: 15 votes
GIRL: 19 votes

Last night I dreamed for the 3rd night in a row that it was a girl. Our appointment is at 3:40pm!

16 weeks...5 am thoughts.

I'm 16 weeks pregnant today with our little tater tot! We Doppler pretty often and TTT's heart rate sounds good. Always hanging out around 150-160.  I'm feeling flutters and that's also reassuring. I have no idea when Ryan's going to be able to feel baby move, he's pretty anxious for that day whenever it may come. For now, I'm satisfied with the flutters.  It feels private, special, and peaceful between TTT and me. I took some belly shots about a week ago while trying on some maternity clothes. Here they are:



My regular clothes were just fitting me awkwardly...the maternity clothes feel much better. I also bought a maternity bathing suit as well. It'll be nice for my growing belly not to be squished into my regular bathing suits this Summer. Though I still feel mostly just fat right now.

Our next doctors appointment is on June 23rd, and the one after that will be our level II ultrasound where we'll see all of tater's little structures, including gender! :o)

In other news, Ryan and I have been SICK SICK SICK. It's been going on for about a week and I had to call off of work 3 nights in a row. Boooo. We have bronchitis and sinus infections. Blech. Back to work tonight though, which is why I'm still up at 5 am writting this blog. I need to sleep all day.

My birthday is on the 16th. On the 17th we were planning on going to The Beach Waterpark . I hope the sick doesn't get in the way. It has lots of water slides that TTT and I will not be going on, but they also have a nice wave pool, lazy river, and lagoon with waterfalls. I can relax in those for the day hopefully. It'll only be 30$ for Ryan and I to go. (They have some weird sale on Tues and Thurs.) Wooo!

Has anyone seen this commercial for the h u g g i e s denim looking diapers?  HAHAHAHA "I poo in blue." Ridiculous! It just cracks me up.  It says at the end "The coolest you'll look pooping your pants" HAHAHAHAHA.

I hope you all are having a peaceful day.

Blood Test Results

We got the blood test results from our ultra screen. The results came back:
*NORMAL*
We feel so blessed and grateful! Thank you all so much for all of your positive words! Oh, and the due date has been changed FOR THE LAST TIME. Back to November 29th. I'm 14w1d now. I have started to feel some flutters. This is about the same time I felt flutters with Grace. YAY! I only feel the flutters about once or twice a day but I just absolutely love it. Oh, and I am really feeling like it's a girl right now! HA! I totally was thinking boy, but I'm not any more. Oh well, who cares anyway!

Please everyone I have a prayer request. Please click THIS LINK
