Our Gender Reveal Party! It's a...

We had the best day yesterday!! I had my 20 week ultrasound yesterday morning. I drank 30 ounces of water an hour before my 10 a.m. appointment. I was so uncomfortable with that much water, but they needed me to do that in order to get the baby's measurements. :)

My mom, Bill's mom, and Bill came with me, and it turned out really fun. It was amazing seeing how much the baby has grown since I last saw him or her at my 8 week ultrasound! My mom and I went to get my cake at Blue Goose. The cake decorator read the card we got from the ultrasound tech, and we came back after she was done so we didn't spoil the surprise.

We had dinner first, and finally, it was time to cut into the cake!! I have been thinking we were having a boy since I was really early on. Bill told me this later, but he also thought it was a boy. :) Note about my dress: I didn't wear pink on purpose. Ha I decided to wear a long dress, and I only have a pink one so that's what I wore. If it had of been warmer, I would have wore my shorter black and white striped dress. I 100 percent thought it was a boy before we knew!

Getting ready to cut into the cake!

About to slice it!

It's a BOY!!!

I'm also 100 percent shocked that I was right!
Both so happy!

We had such a good time together last night. It couldn't have been better! I loved seeing Bill's reaction. I can't wait to start making a baby blanket and getting our baby's room put together!

Ahhhh... I can't believe we're having a boy first! I'm thrilled. :)

19 Weeks & 1 Day

My energy is finally back! I have no more nausea which is great. I'm only mildly tired, but it's pretty manageable. I'm getting more and more excited for our baby to come! I can't believe I'm 19 weeks. I like how it feels so natural to keep expanding each week. Ha! I don't really realize how different I look till I post these pictures every couple of weeks!

On another note, I've been thinking we we're having a boy this whole time, and I can't wait to find out!!

17 Weeks

I'm so happy to be writing this post, because that means, I'm finally feeling like a normal human being again! The nausea is gone, and I'm not as tired. I'm still a little tired throughout the day, but I'm totally okay with that! It's nothing compared to the first four months.

At four months, I'm noticing it's harder to sleep. Sleeping on my back is becoming painful. I was propping myself up a lot, but I would still wake up in the middle of the night and realize my back was aching. Even though I haven't gained a lot of weight yet, it hurts to sleep on my back because the weight gain is all in one place. Ha I'm trying really hard to sleep on my side so hopefully I get better at that.

The most exciting part of the second trimester? The flutters! I felt flutters at the end of 14 weeks. Bill and I were at the birthday concert for the Drive, and I felt three pokes/flutters in a row. It wasn't really distinct. I realize the baby is super small at that point, but I know I felt something. It's amazing! I've felt more flutters since then, and I get so excited and happy every time it happens!

After this week, we only have to wait 2 more weeks to find out if we're having a boy or girl! I cannot wait! We're going to get a cake after the ultrasound. I'm planning on having the ultrasound tech put the baby's gender in an envelop then letting the people at my favorite bakery read it so I can have them write a message on a cake about whether or not we're having a son or daughter. This way we'll all find out together. I couldn't be more excited!

I've been thinking that we're having a boy this whole time!! I will be shocked if we're having a girl, because I've never once thought it was a girl. I can't wait to see if I'm right or wrong. My mom and Bill's mom also think it's a boy. That's too funny to me.

We'll just have to wait a couple more weeks.... :)

Happy 4th of July!!

Happy 4th of July, friends! I just love this holiday! Summer is in full swing, and it's so much fun to celebrate our country with fireworks, friends, and family! I'm in love with it.

I like baking fun treats. This cake is something else with the American flag inside of it! Amazing!

A couple of years ago, I lit off a couple of fireworks with Bill at the farm! It was so much fun although I prefer sparklers most of the time.

Hanging out with friends and family are probably the best part of this long holiday. I can't wait till my sister, Meg, comes home and we can celebrate holidays together!

This photo reminded me of Disney World, and I had to add it! Bill and I had an amazing time there during our honeymoon. That place really is magical. They weren't kidding... :)

Cherry pie has to be one of the best pies ever.

I had breakfast at the farm this morning with Bill's family. We had crepes, bacon, and pancakes. It was pretty good!

I spent some time with my mom this morning after breakfast and finished up some work. Tomorrow, my mom and I are swimming at a good family friend's house. I can't wait to talk to them and catch up on this fun holiday weekend!

Hope you all have a good weekend, friends!
