Team Jack

After the ultrasound 2 weeks ago we bought a little pumpkin to dram a Jack O'Lantern face on for the reveal. Here are Jack's Godparents and us at the reveal. We all had guessed Boy. (LOVE the blue "gummy" bear shirts!!!)

Today this was Jack's profile...He is measuring over a week ahead 24 weeks even and 1 lb 6oz ALREADY lol. Big boy!!

I cried for the first time in a while at an ultrasound today when I saw this sweet button nose.

I don't think this really has hot home yet that we are going to have a baby.


Boy is definately a boy lol.

We are having a ....


Jack Andrew
I am so happy and excited! Our ultrasound appointment went well. It took an hour and a half though to get the money shot. I had to flip flop all over the table to get that picture and there was a little bulge!!! ( my husband says it is an average size bulge hahaha)

We had our Gender reveal party which was super cute and fun. I appreciate feeling the excitement and love and support from all our family and friends. Jason and I could really have been this completely exstatic either way but it is a different feeling to have a baby of the opposite sex. I am woried about all the boy stuff I know nothing about. Jason thinks I am ridiculous for worrying and asking so much about things like puberty and hormones and boy thoughts and worries and relationships and his sex talks. He says we have plenty of time but I would just feel so much more comfortable if I was well prepared.

In other news... I quit my job and am starting a daycare next week I start with my first 2 kiddos and as soon as my liscence comes in I will be taking more. I am very excited about this change as it means I will be home with Jack and have dinner on the table for my husband every night. And my pups will have people around all week :) All good things to come.

Jack is a mad man in the womb. He moves all the time. I love it!!!! When he rests for a few hours it drives me crazy... I still have all the IF and loss fears and worries.

The next post will be all photos of the little man and party. I just wanted to type up a quick update for all my followers...thanks for sticking with me through the dry spell :)

The big reveal

So it is officially less than a week from my anatomy scan and a week exactly until our gender reveal party.

I AM SO EXCITED to see what we are cooking in there.

I switched hospitals last week. I am now going with a midwife and thinking about a water birth or atleast labor in the tub. The hospital is amazing but the midwife is spectacular. They have a rocking chair in the room for you to sit in while you and your midwife talk every appointment. It is so nice. She asked me what my vision for my babys journey into the world is? I have never had a dr ask me what I wanted before. I am in love with her.

She got me in next week for my 20 wk aptmt and Friday the 9th for my anatomy scan!!! YAY
we are still planning on not finding out at the aptmt but we will see what happens neither one of us want to turn our heads for even a second.

I don't know if i am crazy or still in disbelief that 2 babies are now only one but I feel upper left movement and lower right movement and i swear on the Doppler i get two different heartbeats.
I did the needle on a string gender test yesterday and I SWEAR it did nothing in the middle of my belly but on the right it did back and forth (boy) and on the right circles (girl) I think that is so so weird!!!!

I even recorded it on my phone.

I will post a 20 week picture this upcoming week!!!
