16 weeks...The Verdict

After a long awaited doctors appointment our verdict is.... A GIRL!!

We went to the doctors office yesterday for our 16 week check-up and everything was great! Avery is measuring 3 days ahead of schedule and all organs are forming and functioning just like they are supposed to.

She was being very modest and it took some work to find out her gender..... Our first attempt landed us with crossed legs and no answer... We worked with her for a little bit and hit the jackpot!

Our families could not be more happy or excited for us! We have such a loving and supporting group of people and we know Avery will be loved and takes care of, we could not be more lucky!

Chris is excited but is planning on adding a few pieces of pink camo to complete her closer at some point, but so excited!

Tomorrow, Tomorrow.....

I can't wait till tomorrow!!! Chris and I are so excited, wondering what out lives are going to be like an just a short 5 month....

In the present time the only thing that keeps going through my mind is Jack or Avery, Jack or Avery.... Boy or girl, boy or girl.....

Our appointment is tomorrow at 8 am! Let's hope the baby cooperates!

I am not going to sleep a wink tonight!

15 weeks

YAY!!! 15-weeks!!!! In 5 days we will hopefully find out the sex of our baby!!!!!! Exciting, I know!

So far we have been in the name debate stage.... Day dreaming of what our potential boy or girl will forever be called.... Right now it is a toss-up......

Agreed upon names are - Jack Christopher Morgan for a boy, and Avery Morgan for a girl..... We like the middle names Lynn, Brooke, Jane.

We completely agree on a name for a boy but the girl name is where we get hung up. Other potential girl names are as follows -

Chris likes Taylor Lynn Morgan

I like Bailey Jane Morgan and I also like Sydney.... No middle name yet, just Sydney.

The name debate will continue I am sure....

14 Weeks and Counting

We have made it to 14 weeks!!
Chris is getting excited about the baby coming, which is super exciting for me!
My energy level is finally starting to rise and my morning sickness is starting to subside slightly.
We have only 2 more weeks until we hopefully find out what we are having!! I can't wait.... I can barely stand myself right now. Lets just hope that Baby Morgan cooperates.
Our baby is approx. 3 1/2 inches long and weighs about 1 1/2 ounces. About the size of a LEMON.
He or she is also starting to grow a thin layer of hair on their body and can smile.
My mind is a full of thoughts and crazy dreams.
I have had a dream it was a boy and two that it was a girl....
as well as thinking I am going to be a horrible parent....Lets hope that doesn't happen.
Time will tell.
I have become much more clumsy since I have been pregnant, which means I am a walking disaster at this point..... I couldn't walk well before. Also, I can not make a decision to save my life. I have been looking at funiture. I have been looking and looking and nothing has stood out yet.
I have found a bunch of very cool gadgets and toys and teething rings, but nothing that would consitute as a necessity. I am hopeing by knowing what we are expecting that this will make my decision making process a little bit easier...
Check back next week!

Big Announcement

Hello All,

I know it has been several months since I have last blogged. I appologize. Things have been hectic and I have not gotten around to it! On to another note...... Chris and I have a big announcement.....


I am 13 weeks along and my due date is March 13, 2013 or more easily remembered as 3-13-13!

We could not be more excited to welcome this blessing into our lives. We have many projects going on at home trying to prepare for this little bundle of joy.

This picture makes my tummy look larger than it appears to me. Maybe it's because it's late at night OR maybe it's becuase I am in denial..... either way..... there's a belly shot!
PS Don't mind my mess in the background.... That is where I have to dry my hair in the morning right now and also where the nursery is under going some major changes!
Right now my cravings are ANYTHING sweet....mmmm.....
I can not eat meats at dinner time, therefore having a lack of protien.
I can not drink milk in the morning.
I am practically living off of macaroni and cheese and anything sweet.
I am not a fan of prenatal vitimans but I am sucking it up like a big girl.
I love strawberry banana smoothies.
I had lost a total of 14.5 pounds and have gained back some of it.
I am still down 8 pounds, so the doctor orded me to eat whatever I wanted, good or bad, until things started looking up and then I would have to focus on being more healthy.
I have decided that our child is going to be completely spoiled rotten.
Our families have already begun to send gifts to the little peanut or should I say "medium shirmp" (I'll get to that in a minute). We have been so blessed.
Thank you!
According to my daily pregnancy app on my iPhone, our baby has fingerprints on thier tiny fingertips. Veins and organs are clearly visible through his or her still-thin skin. His or her body is starting to catch up with it's over sized head, which now makes up about 1/3 of his or her body. Our baby is almost 3 inches long (about the size of a medium shirmp) and weighs nearly 1 ounce.
I will update again soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
