14 weeks & Gender Scan

Far Along: 14 weeks

How Big is The Baby: At our elective scan they measured so we know exactly how big.... 5.5inches and 3 ounces!!!!

Total Weight Gain: At my OB appointment on wed I was up a total of 2 lbs. (I think, they never tell me!)

Maternity Clothes: Still in normal jeans but they dont button and can only zip a little bit. Maternity shirts because they re more comfy and longer.

Sleep: Sleep got a little bit better this week.

GENDER: To be revealed below!!!!

Movement: Not that I can feel but TONS of movement when we watch baby on the ultrasound.

Food Cravings: Fruit, sweet things.

What I Miss: lunch meat

What I'm looking forward to: Putting the final coat of paint in the nursery today!

Milestones: Finding out the gender of our baby!

Symptoms: Acid reflux, burps, tiredness, breakouts on my face (dear face wash, I miss you), slight dizziness, headaches.

Ok, time for the gender scan.....
We went and had an elective gender scan because anyone who knows me knows that I am not patient in the least bit. So we went and I also brought 2 of my best friends, Kelli and Emily, with us. We had to be there at 4:50 for the appointment and the day went sooooo slow!
Kelli brought me a super fun gift to open while we were waiting with one of her famous collages (that i love!) on the front! It had 2 adorable sleepers, pacifiers, a giraffe stuffed animal and some candy for me.
The scan was great, it is ALWAYS so nice to see the baby and it was super active for the ultrasound!!!
The gender was easily found and they were completely sure without a doubt.
ITS A BOY!!!!!!!!!!
We are so very excited to be having a little boy. It is so nice to be able to say "he" and "him"... we are so in love with our little guy already. I will add some pictures later when I load them on my computer.


  1. Congratulations on your little boy! It all seems much more real when you can assign "he" to your bean, doesn't it? :)

  2. Congrats on your SON! I was right, yay! Hehe.

  3. Oh yay! Congratulations on your little man :)

  4. WOW I can't believe they could tell so early! SO EXCITING!!!!!

  5. See little guy move around in your belly was sooo cool! Thank you so much for allowing me to share that experience with you guys!

    I am so excited for you and can't wait to come over and see the nursery. Sorry we didn't come today after breakfast, I just had tons of laundry to do and we feel like we haven't been home ALL weekend. We will come see it this week or weekend for sure :)

  6. Yay!! I'm so happy for you guys and SO happy that you invited me to be a part of such an important day :) That was by far one of the coolest things I've ever seen!

    I'm so excited to talk about HIM and not "it" :)

    p.s. I forgot to tell you guys - Nick asked me, "Where did Kelli buy that gift bag?!" LOL I guess her collages are getting more and more professional looking! ;)

  7. LOL...that's hilarious Em! I've started to spend lots of time on the ones that I make for Linds because she always puts them up on her fridge and seems to really appreciate them :) That makes me happy!

    I can't wait to go back to that place one was super cool with the huge couch/tv/chairs, etc!
