It's A Boy!

**Pictures to be added**
So my husband is super impatient. I am too, but he is a lot worse. Yesterday, he surprised me with a gender confirmation ultrasound and a sneak peek 3D ultrasound. We weren't suppose to find out until May 10th. However, he graduates May 7th and wanted to know before then.

We are happy to announce we are having a sweet baby boy!

I will admit I was convinced we were having a girl. I don't know why, I just was. I guess I put too much stock in the Chinese Gender Calendar. Or its probably just because every woman wants a daughter just like every man wants a son. I hear though there is nothing like a baby boy...especially with his Mama! :)

My dad and Dave are already gearing him up to be an NFL draft pick for the Steelers...poor guy. He doesn't know what he is getting himself in to!

I must say I am so happy we got to learn about our baby boy earlier rather than later. I feel like its more real now and we can move forward with the fun stuff...decorating! Pin It

Is it a Boy or Is it a Girl?

According to The Chinese Gender Calendar we are having a girl.

According to this

we are having a boy!

Never heard of such? Well I hadn't either until Jennifer posted about it back in October. She used it before finding out her baby's gender via the doctor and it proved to be, well, WRONG! A bunch of reviews I read on the product said it was a scam. In most cases the prediction was incorrect, but in a few it was right. One lady even wrote that she thought the company filled different jars with different chemicals. Some are girl chemicals, some are boy. It's all based on the chance that you buy the correct one for your baby. We thought it was pretty funny!

Dave said we should definitely do it just for fun. I wasn't too sure, but he talked me in to it!

So basically the Intelligender told us what we already knew...
It's 50/50!

Please know we take no stock in this product. We simply did it for fun!

We can't wait to reveal the true gender soon!

Until's your turn! What do you think baby D is? (besides a baby!)

17 weeks

I'm not a huge fan of showing you all my pregnant self. I am getting fatter by the day in all the wrong places; butt, hips, thighs. UGH! I was definitely not at a weight I wanted to be at when I got pregnant and that doesn't help things.

Oh well! Pregnancy is a time to not worry about your weight, right?!

Besides, it dawned on me that next Tuesday I will be 18 weeks and technically 5 months pregnant. I figured I should take some pictures of my growing belly (and self) to look back on!

So without further ado...

Baby D Update

I had my 16 week appointment today. All is well with Baby D. He/She is measuring perfectly and the heartbeat is in the 150s. It was pretty much confirmed that those flutter feelings I've been having are indeed the baby moving. It is a pretty cool feeling.

I, on the other hand, had a bit of a weight gain. UGH! I figured this would happen. When I was stressing about bleeding a few weeks ago I was eating HORRIBLY. My doctor said it was fine -- just to be careful. A lot of water retention happens during these hotter days. Looks like I'm in for a long, hot summer.

Our next appointment is May 10th! That will be the big gender reveal! Exciting times ahead!! Pin It

I was messing around with my blog tonight. I wanted to change the font, background, header, etc. I made a HUGE mess so I just erased it all and started over. I've been on blog websites for hours now. I need a new header, but can't seem to get one made in Anyone have any suggestions?? This is SO FRUSTRATING!!! Pin It

Crates and Colanders

I have been wanting some old wooden crates for awhile now. I finally picked some up over the weekend. I just love them. I think I might get some more and use them in the nursery!

The colanders I've had for quite some time. Over a year at least. I picked them up when Holly, Kim, and I went thrifting one day.

Today I decided to put them both to good use!
