Newest additions!!!

On Wednesday night, our long awaited couch was finally ready for pickup! I was so excited because we custom made this couch. It's so cool because no one else has it! The fabric is a chocolate brown and it is sooooooooooo soft! Love it! It came in three pieces, which we picked out, and they hooked together to form our new sectional! Also, we were able to choose what fabric we wanted for the three extra pillows so we chose a dark red in the same oh so soft fabric. And, Jacob put it together all by himself. He took 2 trips to bring it home and then unloaded the truck and put it together in our house. I felt so bad that I couldn't help. But that's what you get when you're pregnant! (Note: Our walls really aren't yellow. They are a golden tan.)
Here is our next newest addition that we got about a month ago. It's blue and brown. It looks so rich-like. And, it's not too girly for Jacob. Our next new addition will be a cherry wood bed frame. I can't wait because I don't like light wood very much. Well, there's our newest additions!

Since the last utlrasound at 14 weeks, you can really tell just how much he's developed. It's so exciting! He truly is a miracle! The first picture is one of his feet. Isn't it so cute!! You can even see his toes! The second picture is recomfirming that YES, he is a boy!!! And the third picture is his head and body. We love our little boy!

B +

I had another OB visit on Monday, April 7, 2008. Everything looks great with the baby! And they told me about my blood test and other prenatal test results. Everything is great! Yay! That's a relief! And since this was my first time having my blood drawn, I was anxious to get my blood type! And... I'm B +! Yep, I'm positive!

2nd Ultrasound...17 weeks!

Today I had my second ultrasound. It was a lot different than my first ultrasound.
Here's why:
-It was at Mercy Gilbert Hospital instead of the OBGYN office (insurance reasons)
-It was ONLY an ultrasound
-It was a longer ultrasound
-It was early in the morning (7:30 am)
-BEST of ALL!! Jacob was able to be there!!!
Today was such a great day already!!! I had a scheduled ultrasound on Monday, April 7 but the OGBYN office called and said I needed to make an appointment with the hospital because of my insurance. I thought this was a horrible idea at first and would inconvenience me to have to go to an ultrasound one day and then the doctor another day. I wanted it to be together!

Well, the Lord knows how things are supposed to be and that's why I just have to have faith! With Jacob's work schedule, he couldn't have made it to the ultrasound in the OGBYN office because of work. And he had already missed one ultrasound where we found out it was a boy. But, since the hospital is opened really early, Jacob was able to come see the ultrasound before work. It was meant to be! It was such a touching experience and one I wouldn't trade for anything! He loved seeing his little active boy move and so did I. I can't explain how good it felt for Jacob to be there and experience and see this wonderful miracle that we both helped create.

Wow! I love being pregnant! Who cares if my hips are getting bigger and my waist will never be the same! It's all worth it! Now I can't wait to meet our little boy and hold him and kiss him! Life is good! Miracles do happen!
