Blue... Pink......or.....YELLOW?


On Wednesday august 26th at 2:00 in the afternoon, Rusty and I walked from our house (which happens to be just across the street) to Mercy Hospital on a mission to find out the mystery of our baby's gender. I was required to have a "full" bladder for this ultrasound so while we walked I drank my water and while we checked in and waited...I drank my water....and drank and drank! We were finally going to be able to tell friends and family what expect. My friend Suni wanted to find out what we were having by the color of my husbands tie that night at church. A tie with blue in it if it was a boy, with pink if it was a girl, and yellow if it was still not known.

As Rusty and I sat in the waiting room anticipating this exciteing event, we were both nervous and happy to FINALLY find out this mystery. Do we buy pink frilly dresses and adorable headbands? Or blue and white little sailor outfits and tiny suits? Today was the day... or so we thought! When my name was finally called, we anxiously awaited the big news. As the ultrasound technician began checking all the baby's parts, we got to see it moving around and having quite a time in there! It was soo soo cute and funny to watch! We got to see adorable feet, a skeletal looking face, the top of it's head and arm...and a bunch more. The funniest part to Rusty and I was when the technician got a picture of it's legs all stretched out....she saw it and immediately said "Your baby has LONG legs!" All we could do was laugh because that DEFINITELY comes from daddy!

When the time came to find out the baby's gender, the technician asked me if I was as far long as I thought I was. She said that according to her measurements, I was only 17 weeks and 1 day (4 months and 1 week). The perfect time to tell is 18 weeks. She said that in some veiws she thought it looked like a boy and in others a little girl. Needless to say, we still don't know what to buy for and expect! Suni was very disappointed when she walked in and saw Rusty wearing yellow in his tie! (Even though he hid his tie from her forever just to be mean!) Im most likely going back in a week or so. Im still trying to make another appointment. So for now, the color is YELLOW still and the baby's gender remains an unsolved mystery.........and WE ARE GOING CRAZY!!

Long time.....no post!

I apologize for not posting in such a LOONNG time! I guess I've been busy and it seems like I do most of my updating on facebook. Alot has happened since my last post. I am now exactly 4 months (16weeks) pregnant and have a due date of January 27th of 2010...Rusty and I have been to the doctor twice and we had our first ultrasound and heard the baby's heart beat on July 7th! Here is the picture of the baby, although it is hard to make out....it looks like a little snow man.

The head is on the left and the rear on the right. As soon as the picture came on the screen the baby was doing gymnastics like crazy!! All we saw was little legs and arms swinging and going crazy!! Rusty and I looked at each other VERY shocked because we were expecting a very calm little thing.....The doctor told us that we had a "dancing baby"! Haha, it was exciting! We also heard a very steady heart beat...it was amazing. This week the baby is the size of an avocado. I haven't felt it move yet, but that should come soon! On august 26th at 2 pm we get to find out if it's a boy of girl!! I will keep everyone posted on the news. Here are my two belly shots I've taken in the past two months.
My first belly shot at 3 months pregnant
My second belly shot at 4 months
