My Sweet Little....GIRL?

So i went to my 16 weeks appointment today and after 4 hours, yes 4 hours at the doctors office we got an ultrasound of the baby. I wanted to make sure everything was ok. Well the lady asked if we wanted to know the gender and of course we did so she told us its a little early but that she's pretty sure its a girl!! We're so excited, the baby was in a perfect position and the pictures came out really good. She did a 4D ultrasound and gave us some pretty cool pictures! It was so much fun and we can't wait for the 20 week checkup! These 4D ultrasounds are AMAZING! you can see everything. That first picture gets a real good look at the whole baby and the umbilical cord. The second one was a cute side view!

We had a really good thanksgiving this year and spent it with my family. most everyone was up and while we were there we all got a few surprises! I found out my sister Christy is about 8 wks pregnant, due in July and Then come to find out my other sister Cherie is 19wks pregnant and is due the end of April! so we're going to have lots of babies within 2months or eachother! It's exciting and will be so much fun to have cousins all within the same age!

13 1/2 Weeks

So This is how much your body can change in just one short week. I started noticing this within the last few days. The picture on the left was taken when i was 12.5 wks pregnant. The picture on the right is 13.5 weeks pregnant, exactly one week apart. It could also have to do with the fact that the white shirt is really tight. Anyways I know when i eat too much that it feels good to stick my stomach out like that pic, well the last few days i realized that it hasn't gone back in and has been quite noticable with tighter shirts. Good thing i don't wear shirts like that alone cuz i'm in the stage where you can't really notice, it just looks like you've gained a little weight! anyways i'm just a few short days away from the start of my second trimester and am anxiously waiting. Only a month or so left till we find out what we're having! i can't wait!

Happy Halloween

So my postings are so late, but since our camera was stolen we have had to use a nice disposable one so i finally got them developed. Anyways, So last year we had to work Halloween and we didn't do anything, so this year we decided to dress up. So all the Nurses and some of the other staff dressed up and we had a big potluck. We had so much fun! Can you imagine the look on our patients faces when we told them we were going to be their nurses for the day! I was a flapper if you can't tell for lack of any other costume left two days before halloween! I also was one of the winners of the coloring contest and i am so proud so i took a pic of it. That stupid picture took me almost a whole shift alone with flat crayons! Anyways it was worth it!
