Gender Reveal PARTY

Last Monday I had my monthly doctor appointment and ultrasound at 18 weeks 3 days. We were pretty excited about this ultrasound because we were finding out the sex of the baby! Even know we knew the sex as we had the ultrasound tech check it at 12weeks. Its not always accurate at that time, but we couldn't hold out! Lol. Well the sex didn't change - so we were SUPER excited and cant wait to tell everyone!!

We had a cookout planned for Sunday at our house and had invited both our families for a gender reveal. Are family was pretty divided, half wanted boy and half wanted girl! Here is one of the ultrasound pictures. It was hard to get a good picture bc the baby kept moving around! So active!

Baby was measuring right on time. Heartbeat was very strong! After the ultrasound we met with the doctor. We chatted a little about upcoming things like the glucose test, talked about how we decided against all testing for genetic abnormalities and set up our next appointment. 
Sunday we cooked out and all our families came over. I think we had close to 20 people there.We had everyone chose between team boy or team girl! I even had a little poem out to help them decide! All that did was confuse them more! But it was so fun hearing all the debate!

After all the fun of trying to decide what we were having we decided to get the show on the road! 

This little girl is so loved already. The reaction of our family & closest friends was just amazing! 


Team Boy or Team Girl?

This is the day our ENTIRE family has been waiting for!

We wanted to do something fun and exciting to reveal the gender of our little gummy bear! We thought about doing a photo shoot, but thought a gender reveal party would be more fun because our family could interact with us.

Of course we didn't tell everyone right away..

Team Boy or Team Girl?

Everyone was SUPER excited for a GIRL!!!!

First Trimester

 Surviving Pregnancy: The First Trimester.

So the first trimester wasn't too bad. I never really had any morning sickness, but I did get that nauseated feeling. The bad part is I completely lost my appetite! Real food did not look good to me at all! I ate mostly sweets, which yes I know its bad.. but that is all I could eat. I had stock in popsicles, and they were the healthy all fruit ones, so what did it hurt! I had a little back pain but nothing I wasn't already used to! I was exhausted all the time! That part I hated! I felt like I couldn't do anything. All I wanted to do is sleep! 

At 8 weeks we got to "confirm" our pregnancy as well as do an ultra sound! We were super excited to see our little gummy bear! And that's exactly what it looked liked, didn't surprise me as I eat them like crazy! We were sad and glad at the same time that it was only one! Even though I would of loved to have twins!! Its crazy how much they grow between weeks!
The difference in ultrasounds are crazy!
