18 Weeks

IT'S A BOY!!! We are so excited, hubby can't stop smiling!!! It was the sweetest thing I have EVER seen when tee heard the doctor say "well I am 85% that this is a BOY" tee totally was GLOWING and his smile was the biggest I have seen since we got married. I couldn't stop crying because he was so sweet and said "I have a little boy". Im crying now just thinking about how happy he was. Tee did make sure he told me "you know that I would have been just as excited if it was a girl". I told him that I knew that. I just cannot get the expression out of my head and I dont want to because I fell in love with him all over again. It was truely amazing!

The baby stats: heartbeat 152bpm, about the size of a Ken barbie doll (tall and skinny), weighs about half a pound, and LONG legs and feet. The baby was laying REALLY low (on my bladder literally). He was curled up in a little ball so that is why the tech said that she was only 85% sure of the boy. All organs looked GREAT, brain, heart, tummy, kidneys, all looked great! The tech did not get a GOOD pic of the heart so she wants to do another ultrasound on our next appointment to double check the heart. But she was able to tell that there is 4 chambers so that is good. I have attached his little pictures from today, hope you enjoy!! :)

It's been a while!

I just realized that I have neglected to write in my blog for a while so I thought I would update it today. Lately, I have been pretty busy, school was finishing up, I had training this past week, been shopping for baby stuff (my favorite thing to do these days), and trying to stay motivated to continue cleaning my house. That is the weirdest thing, I LOVE to clean but lately have not been motivated to get going on cleaning the house. I am getting so excited about baby coming, I still have a while to go but I just cant wait to take him/her to events or do crafts with them. The more I think about it the more excited I get! :)

Yesterday, hubby and I found a crib!! YAY :) it is the same one I have been looking at from Target but we both agreed this was the one plus it has a matching dresser which was really important to me. So now I am ready to get started on the room!!!

This thursday we go back to the doctor. I can't wait to hear the heartbeat, it is torture in between appointments because they are so far apart and I just want to know everything is ok. I am pretty sure everything is good though because I have been feeling GREAT and getting HUGE! :) The next "big step" in the pregnancy is feeling the baby move...I am constantly rubbing my belly and touching it telling lil one "come on just kick mommy" but nothing happens! I know that will happen sooner or later, but I really would prefer the sooner rather than the later!

Ok, so I think that is pretty much up to date on life in the Dawkins house hold, nothing too exciting! But there is left over pizza in there calling my name and I hate to make it wait so I better go eat some ;)
