Ultrasound and Heartbeat!


Staring right at us!

We went to our appointment last friday! And it was so much fun for both of us! It was so cool to hear a nice strong heart beat. But we also loved seeing a healthy, wiggly, little baby inside. It was moving like crazy! : ) And we saw it open it's mouth a few times, it looked like it was drinking. The nurse was trying to get the baby to turn over so she could do the Nuchal test, so she kept poking it. And it looked like it kept elbowing her back! It was so funny! We were really surprised how big it looked compared to last time. It looks huge in these pictures, but it's only the size of a medium sized shrimp! It was a cool experience, and it makes pregnancy seem more real! I was supposed to be 13 weeks and 2 days. But again they told me it's measuring one week smaller. So they moved my due date from April 22, 2009 to April 29th! We'll see how many times it changes by the end!

O my gosh, she looks so cute!!! Notice I said she, that's because I think that you are gonna have a girl!! I can't believe that she is only the size of a shrimp, she looks so much bigger. That's crazy that she was moving around so much, when we did Gantt's he was not having it and didn't move at all. He was curled up in a ball and must have been pretty comfy because we tired everything to try and get him to move around. Anyways, I'm so excited for you and hopefully you guys find out the gender by the time we come out there!! And hopefully you feel better, cause we have some major shopping that has to get done!!

I'm catching up on your blog...
First of all, your crib bedding is SO cute. I love it! Perfect uni-sex theme. You could even put lime greem with it for either a boy or girl and it would be adorable. I might I have to copy you with our next baby ;D!
The pictures of your little babe are amazing! It's crazy that it's so small but still looks like a normal baby!
Also your little preggy belly is too cute! Congrats again!
