19 Weeks

Uh oh. It's been more than 2 weeks since my last post. I'm sorry for being such a crappy blogger! Last week was Easter and we had a really busy weekend. By the time I thought about blogging I figured I would just wait a week so I could share the sex of the baby! 

We had our ultrasound last friday and we found out we are having ...... a ....... BOY!! 

The ultrasound was such an amazing experience. It was so cool to watch her zoom in on all his little body parts. When she got to the point to tell us about the gender she zoomed in and of course I already knew what it was before she told me and I couldn't even talk because I was tearing up so bad. 

After the ultrasound was over Johnny told me when she said it he pictured himself sitting there holding our little boy in his arms. *adorable* 

The doctor verified that everything looked great on the ultrasound and that the baby is right on track for how far along I am. He weighs 9 oz and his heartbeat was 155bpm. It still amazes me everyday that he's really in there and he's really going to be here in just a few months. 

The ultrasound tech got a few really good pictures. Even one with a thumbs up!

We are still contemplating a name but we are narrowing them down to a few. Boy names have proven to be a bit more challenging for me than girl names. 

I also bought a few items for our little boy just because. Two little man shoes and an adorable onesie. 

Through all the excitement of this week I've also been thinking about the fact that I am almost halfway through this pregnancy and I feel like I haven't done anything yet! I need to make a serious list. I haven't signed up for any classes, considered my birth plan, bought any baby stuff (other than a few things) so I feel like I need to get my butt in gear. 

On a not so cheery note, I'm sick again! This time i'm just stuffy, no fever so thats not as bad as before. Also, I haven't worked out in a week and a half. Slack life! I did however get a bicycle over the weekend so I'm planning on doing some riding once I'm feeling better. 

Heres a bump photo at 19 weeks 5 days! 

Does anyone have any suggestions for items on my to do list?!

  1. Finally! :-P I've always wanted a water birth. I've watched them on youtube ave tv shows and out just seems so much more relaxing than a hospital bed. and yay for a boy! :-) congrats!

  2. Thanks! Ya I have always heard water births are really cool. The hospital that I'm delivering at has a tub but they don't actually let you deliver in it, just labor so I figured it's not worth it lol

  3. I had a lot of back labor when I delivered my daughter and the tub truly helped and was def worth it. I had a nurse midwife for the whole labor and delivery and it was wonderful. When I had my son (he was first)the nurse wouldn't let me get out of the bed and the doctor took his sweet time to show up for the delivery.

    1. I will have a midwife also. Maybe I will look into the tub. I think you have to reserve it. Thanks for the advice!

  4. Off the top of my head, suggestions for your list: go on a little getaway as a couple ("babymoon"), read Birthing From WIthin (if you only read one book about childbirth make this the one. so good.), and make some meals to have in freezer that can just be pulled out and baked. And even though hospitals don't let you deliver in the tubs, warm water feels amazing while in labor (I've heard sitting in the shower works too though if you don't have tub access.)

  5. Maybe I will call and ask about the tub. It might be nice to not have to lay in a bed the whole time!
