Pink or Blue?

So our next ultrasound is coming up on Wednesday. I am so excited we should get to find out the gender of the baby. I say its a boy and Dan says its a girl. Wonder who is going to be right. What is your guess? Well my clothing is starting to get tight and not fit right. I suppose soon I will need to start looking for maternity clothing. I haven't felt any kicks yet but if I gently press on the baby I feel it pressing back. Dan also has felt the baby respond back. All and all I have had a wonderful pregnancy.

Great News

Dan and I are so excited to share our news that we are finally expecting baby #1. On August 18th we got a postive Home Pregnancy test. This has been a long journey waiting for this to happen. We had been trying to concieve our little miracle for over two years. I am thankful for those who have kept us in your thoughts and prayers. Also for the wonderful doctors. Infertility is rough thing. But I have stayed positive through hard times because everything happens for a reason. Back to our good news.
Our first ultrasound was on October 1st. It was so cool to see the baby move. The doctor called our baby a squirmer. The 2nd appointment was on October 29th. We heard the babys heart beat which was 170 beats per minute. These appointments really made things real that we are finally going to be parents. I am due April 30th 2009. I am 16 weeks along. I lucked out and didn't have that bad of morning sickness.

We have already started getting the nursery together. Dan has painted the walls a light green. We have already bought,a crib,mattress and rocking chair. The rocking chair is from an unfinished furniture store and Dan is going to finish it. Also he is refinishing a dresser that my parents gave us. I am going to buy fabric and my sister is going to either help or make the bedding for me.

Our next ultrasound is going to be on December 3rd. We should find out the sex of the baby. I am saying its going to be a Boy and Dan says were having a Girl! Guess we will see. Really we just want a healthy baby!
