We had our ultrasound yesterday, and it was so much fun!! These past several weeks were very weird because I was too early to feel the baby move, and yet far enough along that I haven't felt the nausea or extreme fatigue like I did in my first trimester. I began to wonder if this whole pregnancy thing was for real (except for the fact that many of my pants no longer fit and when I look down I can see my belly pooching experience).

It was amazing to see the baby on the ultrasound!! I loved seeing Baby E moving, flipping over and moving his or her legs and arms. I also loved seeing all of the details...the brain, the kidneys, the stomach, the bladder, the femur, everything was amazing, but what I think I loved seeing the most was the little heart. I guess I love it so much because it represents life to me, that which we never saw with our first baby. This whole experience has reminded me life is such a miracle, to think that this baby is being knit together inside me is awe-inspiring. This new life is such a blessing and a miracle!

I know many are wondering whether or not we found out the sex. Yes and no. Yes because the ultrasound tech saw the sex, wrote it on a piece of paper, and gave it to us in an envelope. I have it in my possession, but we are having a gender reveal party on Saturday with family and friends. I'll post pictures afterwards!


  1. I can't imagine how hard it would be to not peek in that envelope! We aren't finding out at all, but I love your idea of having a "reveal party." So glad the baby is doing well. I also cherish that little heartbeat since we didn't see that before either. It symbolizes all that is different this time around.

  2. Congratulations to you both! KP and Emily told me the news when I was in town a while back - very exciting!

  3. I am so excited for you guys! Let us know sometime after the party!!! I saw the wedding pictures and you look great!!! We miss you both!

  4. Ah... i came to blog for this specific purpose - wanting to know boy or girl:) Glad all went well!!!
