It's a.... BOY!

Today's ultrasound went well, and as you can tell from the post title, we found out we're having a BOY! Everything measured just right, if anything ONE DAY ahead of the due date but that's nothing. I wanted it to be a whole family event, and I'm so thankful Kevin could get out of work just a little early and I could work out the kids' naps so they could come too. Before naps I looked up some pictures of ultrasound images to show Eli, just so he'd know kind of what it would look like since I've been telling him for a week now how we get to take a peek at the baby using a special machine. I also found a picture of a woman getting the ultrasound and how she was laying on the table. So as soon as we walked into the room, Eli was telling me to get on the table. Funny! He knew exactly what was going on! I forgot how long it takes to get all the measurements though and the kids were pretty restless, well, mostly Hannah throughout the whole deal. And most of it I really couldn't tell what the images were of. Baby was curled up in a ball the whole time so we didn't get a good shot of his face or body, but we could definitely tell it was a baby! =) But man, I'm sooo thankful that things are looking good and healthy! And we can start preparing for the arrival of BABY BOY!

Pregnancy-wise I've been feeling great! So far, with all three pregnancies that first-trimester nausea has stopped right at 12 weeks! Praise the Lord! And I'm just now starting to actually look pregnant instead of just a little round, haha! And I'm also starting to FEEL the belly, like when I bend down or certain movements. Now to find a pair of good maternity pants! Ugh, it's soo hard and all my comfy pants like yoga pants or whatever are capris and will soon be packed away for the season. Or not, we'll see. Hopefully soon I'll have a picture for you! I really haven't taken any yet!

So dear friends, thank you for your prayers as this ultrasound was approaching! Continue to pray for a smooth rest of the pregnancy!

I live in yoga pants! They are so comfortable, and not to mention they're extremely flattering for the bottom and legs. My Favorite brand is with out a doubt Tea Party from RepeatPossessions.com. Their styles and colors are endless! Shipping is quick and world wide!

Congratulations to you all!!

Yes, I lived in yoga pants until they didn't fit right around the 8th month! Looking forward to seeing pics. I wasn't able to get to post pics & I might when I get back to posting! (mine are when I was about to deliver-so I'm huge!)
Keep up on your exercise and nutrition!! You'll never ever regret that!!

Blessings!! :)
