Our ultrasound :)

Hey! Alright, I can finally post about our amazing ultrasound!

Anyhow, first was just so AMAZING!! First the tech had the normal 2D u/s on to determine the sex, and the minute she said "It's a girl" everyone screamed! Luckily so many people went, it was nice to have a family that is so supportive! Out of my family it was my mom, dad, sister, grandma, grandpa, aunt, and cousin..and out of his? His mom. I'm just thankful she came. After that she was moving around like CRAZY! Every time we have seen her, she has been SO active.

She started out pretty much upside down with her head and belly facing down, then she turned facing in towards me, then she flipped facing out..she was everywhere! The tech was amazed at how active she was. In the 3D, she started with her right hand covering her face..but then later she still had her hand up there but it looked exactly like she was blowing kisses! She had her hand under her chin! She was in so many cute positions it's hard to think of them all! Let's see..we have a really good picture of her doing a peace is hilarious! She also was laying with her hands above her head for a little while..then it looked like she was cuddling up with my was so cute! She had her hands by her face and knees pulled was awesome! For awhile there she would literally kick and push off of my uterus too! I was amazed that I wasn't feeling it! Anyway..if you are friends with me on facebook Ross made a video and I am tagged in it so you should be able to see most of the pictures..I haven't had a chance to put them up yet.

Anyway, better run but wanted to let you know what it was like!

Oh! And her name is Avery Hope! We have loved the name Avery but when we decided the middle name Hope..we chose that for sure. We chose Hope as a middle name because it is part of the name of the clinic "New Hope" and without them, this opportunity never would have happened! And also, without Hope..we never would have gotten through all of the tough times when dealing with infertility.

Okay gotta go!

16 weeks :)

There is my 16 week belly pic! I can actually really notice a difference this week between the two pictures. I can't really tell on myself, but putting them side to side makes me feel like things are okay and this little one is doing well. We are so excited that we find out what we are having in about 2 1/2 weeks! I am probably going to be a nervous wreck that day waiting in anticipation! We have been going to baby stores and just can't wait to register and buy clothes and everything..SO amazing!

AFM, I am feeling pretty good. I'm not AS tired as I was in the beginning but still tired. I am still having some major food aversions..but it's getting better I think. Last week I had 2 days where I had a nasty sinus headache and it affected me so much that I couldn't eat..they made me feel soo nauseous! I am headed back to the ENT though on Wednesday so I am hoping something can be done. Other than that, I haven't felt the baby move yet, but I will be so excited when I do! That will be another sign that everything is okay.

That's about it for now but I wanted to post the picture before I forgot! Hope everyone is well!

Amazing :)

Hey everyone!

Well, I am now 15 weeks along and blessed every single day of the 15 weeks! We had our latest doctors appointment about a week ago and have a scheduled date of September 30th for our BIG ultrasound! We will be definitely finding out what this little miracle is, and then right away we will be registering and getting everything ready! With the holidays we feel like we need to do everything early since we will probably be so busy with everything else. Anyhow, our appointment was GREAT! We were able to hear our little ones heartbeat (but not until after being scared to death because my doctors doppler wasn't working right!) but it was there and she said it was "perfect"! Every time we go I always get this scared feeling deep down because after going through all of the infertility and having so many let downs, it's hard to believe that things are going WELL for once! We are so blessed with this little miracle that's for sure!

I am officially in my 2nd trimester (yay!) and am still feeling a lot of food aversions. Sometimes I feel like I could vomit at any minute! I really hate this feeling because I hate not being able to eat. I lost 2lbs at my last appointment! I don't want to lose weight because I know it is taking away from what the baby needs. Anyhow, look for an update on September 30th for the news! Now for my 15 week belly shot! Still not much there, but I think it will be here soon enough!
