Week 16

Where do I begin?? I feel like I say it all the time but time really is flying by!  I originally had big plans to make sure that I took a weekly bump picture next to my chalkboard.  The chalkboard that I made my dear husband by all the supplies and make the very day after I found out I was pregnant.  Keeping up with that is pretty much turning into an epic fail!  I don't know what it is...but after work it seems like I can't find the energy to draw a pretty picture on that darn thing and touch up my make up for a quick simple picture.  But it's a new year and my new years resolution was to keep on top of this little family blog of mine.  It is important to me.  Memories are everything to me and I am one of those people that wants to bottle up all the ones I have and keep them forever.  I just know I would hate myself for not following through with documenting this exciting time in our life.
With that being said...weekly chalkboard bump updates from here on out.  So let's go back in time shall we....
Week 15 was our big gender reveal!!!  All who know me know that I am pretty much the most impatient person on this earth!  Bad quality I know, but I just can't help it. So from the second I found out I was pregnant there were just two things I absolutely could not wait for.  #1 to get past those scary first three months safely and #2 find out if our little nugget was a boy or a girl.
So when the doctor told me that I would have to wait until 20 weeks to find out the sex of the baby...I knew there was just no way that was going to happen.  I immediately set out to research this!  Where did I turn to?  Google of course!  The answer to everything!  Come to find out you can find out the sex of your baby at 15 weeks for just a mere $59.  Totally worth question!  So I scheduled ours for the next week.
It honestly felt like Christmas morning and I was about to open the biggest gift EVER!!! We set out to the appointment.  Steve, my mom and brother accompanied me for the big reveal. 
It didn't take long for this little baby to show us the goods...and the tech said instantly "no questions about it...that's a girl shot!"  & in that very instant my heart did somersaults!  I like to say that I feel like that part in the Grinch where his heart grows to 3 times the size...Steve always likes to quote me on that and make fun of me for saying that.  But, it's the truth.  In that very moment my heart grew 3x the size.
 Since the day I found out I was pregnant I just knewin my heart it was a little girl. Honestly, if we must be truthful...I never really pictured it any other way. I mean my pinterest board was all girl was just a known thing to me I guess. I was going to have a girl. Now I know a lot of people whose motherly intuition proved to be wrong..but I just felt it. My whole life I pictured myself a mom of a little girl. & now I am. I have a daughter and that my friends makes me tear up instantly.
Here is how we shared the wonderful news with friends and family...
