You saw that we picked out paint for the nursery, right? Well, Brent has out-done himself and painted, found nursery furniture, and organized/set-up the room! It's so fun, and we love to peek in there on occasion.
The furniture is from an ad on Craigslist. It is absolutely beautiful, minimally used, and perfect for our picky taste!
We have our stroller travel system picked out (again, Brent is my super-hero and researched tons of them), and a few knick-knacks to place in the baby room. When we finish it, I will be SURE to post pictures.
My body is continuing to change, and I still feel like I've gained 10-20 lbs. But at our last appointment with the doctor, I was only up 3! YES!!! I have the slightest baby bump, and even though it looks like I ate a big dinner still, I know what it really is- a baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've kept the best for last.
Many of you know already, but let me tell the story in a more detailed version.
We had our gender ultrasound this morning! We were very excited (I was nervous as well...for some reason). The moment we saw our tiny babe on the screen, it was love all over again! It grew so much since the last time we saw it- 8 weeks ago! The baby was sitting pretty, with the legs drawn up to the belly (truly, the poor thing looked quite cramped). And the movement!!!! WOW! Active, this one is. VERY. It was such a sweet thing to watch the legs and hands moving/waving. Baby didn't like getting poked and prodded by the ultrasound wand!
Since this was the anatomy scan, they measured everything (heart, brain, kidneys, legs, etc). Everything checked out wonderfully.
We had brought a little card and envelope with us so they could write the gender inside of it, without telling us. We would look at the card later where we could celebrate over coffee :)
The appointment ended, and we left with a well-sealed envelope which contained a juicy secret, and a few pictures of baby T.
We made our way to Barnes and Noble and sat with our Starbucks in the Children's center. The moment of truth had arrived! I was so nervous and super excited! I had a 98% certainty that it was a boy. Since we found out I was pregnant I had that feeling...
This is the results (again taken in our nursery when we got home).
