It's a..........


The guys are excited, and a little in shock, I think! I had absolutely no clue or feeling at all as to what the gender was, so I was pleasantly surprised! I love girls and I am so excited for them to have a boy and a girl. I can't wait to meet this sweet little thing, only 19ish more weeks to go!

Half way done

Holy smokes, I can't believe we're already half way done! I am still feeling great and often forget that I'm pregnant :) The bean is wiggling more and more, and the guys will be here on Thursday for our anatomy scan. My doctor does the ultrasounds and we have an appointment at the same time, so they will all get to meet each other. Hopefully we have time to do a hospital tour as well.

I took my mom to Denver this weekend to celebrate her birthday, and we had a blast! We went to a baseball game, and a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater. We also relaxed a lot and did one of our favorite things- SHOPPING!

There isn't much to report on the baby/pregnancy front.... we are a banana this week- approximately 6.5 in long and about 10.5 oz. I love to feel the bean move and kick around, it's absolutely my favorite part of pregnancy! I can't wait for it to get bigger and move more! Remind me of this blog post in 15 or so weeks when I'm super uncomfortable and complaining about the bean keeping me awake with all it's movement, and how I can't breathe because I've got feet in my ribs, etc. :)

Here's a picture from Denver, the belly is finally starting to poke out a little more! I will update after our ultrasound on Thursday, and I can't wait to find out what the gender of this little person is!

We have movement!

I am 17 weeks 6 days today, HOLY COW!! I have been feeling some subtle movements on the inside for about a week or so now. It just feels like bubbles, or a muscle twitch usually, and it took me a few times to be convinced that it was actually the Bean moving! Then today I was laying down and I was feeling it a lot, so I pulled my shirt up and I COULD SEE IT!! The little Bean was wiggling away! It was so awesome! I immediately texted the guys and they're thrilled too, of course :) It makes me happy because it gives me hope that they will be able to see and feel it when they are here in a few weeks for our 20 week ultrasound. I think I'm more excited to see the guys than I am to find out the sex of the baby, LOL. There hasn't been much of anything exciting going on lately... still don't have a big belly, still no crazy pregnancy symptoms. Just hanging out, growing a baby :)
