1/4 of the way!

So tomorrow I will start my tenth week of pregnancy! I can't believe I am a quarter of the way through my pregnancy...I seriously feel like it was just yesterday that I found out we would be welcoming a new addition to our family! I wanted to post a picture of my belly but I have yet to take one...I rarely get "dressed" and don't feel like having my picture taken in my pajama pants! I have several things going on this weekend that require me to get out of my sweats so I will try to remember to have my husband snap a pic of my belly!

So I have a question...Josh and I are dying to know the sex of this sweet baby! I'm sure you can all guess that we are hoping for a boy since we already have two precious little question is...
has anyone ever taken the Gender Prediction test that you can buy at Walmart or Walgreens?? I looked it up online a few days ago and it said that it is best to take it around your tenth week so I was thinking about doing it next week...I am just curious to know if it actually gives correct results or not?? I'm not going to go out and start buying pink or blue based on the results...I just really want to have an "idea"...

As of now Kiley, my mom and I are all saying BOY!
I was SO sick with both of my girls...constant sickness for FIVE months...HORRIBLE! I haven't felt great with this one but 100 times better than with the other two!
With both of the girls I was in maternity clothes by 10-12 weeks...I am currently still wearing my size 2 I type this!! I do have a "pooch" by the end of the day but nothing like before!
According to the Chinese is a boy!
Kiley has said she was having a brother since we told her I was pregnant!

These are all just little things and right now I really have no idea what the little bean long as it is healthy I will be happy with whatever God decides to give us!

Let me know if any of you have done the gender test or have heard anything about it!

133 BPM

So I got a call this morning around 10 asking me if I could be at the doctor for my sonogram by 11...I blurted out the words...YES...after which I remembered that my husband had taken my tahoe to work because his car couldn't make it in the snow...ooops! mom came to the rescue...once again...and made sure that I made it! She's great!

As I laid there on the table I honestly felt like I was going to pass out. For the past two weeks I have been wondering what was going to happen with this pregnancy but there was a certain about of hope in the not knowing the for sure answer...I have been in what feels like a constant state of prayer on behalf of my pregnancy and the well being of my unborn child. This is the moment I had been waiting for....

I laid there squeezing my husbands hand with my eyes closed...he and the tech knew I didn't want to look...right as my husband told me to open my eyes I heart a HEARTBEAT over the baby's heartbeat!! At 133 bpm to be exact! I started crying...what an emotional mess I am! I have never been so happy to hear that noise in my life! Just two weeks ago I was told that my pregnancy might not be viable and that I might lose the baby and there I was listening to and watching its little heart beat! God is so amazing! I am so thankful for both of my girls but this baby will forever be my MIRACLE BABY! It still looks sort of "tadpolish"...but it has sweet little arm buds that will soon be waving at me and a bit of a tail...which will soon be turning into wonderful soccer playing legs! I love that little "thing"...we are going to name it tonite...I feel bad calling it an "it"!

So here's the deal...I am seven and a half weeks...due at the beginning of September!

I don't really know of anyone who reads my blog but I know there have to be a few of you out my blog counter goes higher and higher everyday! Well to those of you that I know and to those that I don't....thank you so much for your support and prayers!

I will be sure to keep everyone updated as things progress...probably with more updates than you would like don't have to read them all!!
