It's a....

We had our ultrasound today. And while they aren't willing to guarantee and won't say with 100%'s a girl! There was definitly the absence of male annatomy. And the doctor plainly pointed out the girl anatomy. We thought we weren't going to be able to find out. She was curled up in a ball and not moving (I think she gets this from me, I sleep curled up, while Marc is flat on his back). She had her feet crossed and her knees were tightly together. Luckily, the doc and technician were able to get a shot from the bottom, as if you were sitting in a chair and the camera was underneath you, the bottom and back side of the thighs. They are estimating her to weigh 10 ounces (which is normal for right now) and everything looks good. 2 arms, 2 legs, 2 feet, 2 hands, 4 chamber heart just beating away. Just think, on Wednesday, we'll be at the half way mark. Here are a few of the pictures from today.

Her foot.

The top of her head.

This one she is looking right at the camera.

Baseball Pics

We find out tomorrow. Everyone keep your fingers crossed!

I thought I'd post some of the pictures I took at Marc's baseball game last weekend. They won! 15-5, Marc went 2 for 2, almost hit one out of the park (it grazed the fence), and got hit by a ball. I think he might have walked, too, but I can't remember.

Busy weekend

I know, the weekend's not quite over yet, but I have pictures I wanted to post. But we really are having a busy weekend. This morning Marc ran the Quantico Down and Dirty 8K (althought it wasn't too dirty). We took Jack with us and he freaked out, like we expected. But we were going to be gone most of the day and felt guilty leaving him home alone. He was really good, considering how much he doesn't like loud noises (the DJ playing club-type music), large groups of people (runners and their families), and car rides (about 45 mins each way). Then this afternoon, we went and saw two of our good friends get married, Jen and Steve Bohnke (hence the pictures I want to post). And tomorrow Marc's got a baseball game. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend for running, weddings, and baseball. It was beautiful and sunny and warm.

Some pictures from today.

The bride and groom.

One of my favorites of the bride and groom.

And here is a nice belly shot of me and our lil one at 18 weeks 3 days.

I'll be sure to update sometime next weekend with news from our ultrasound (scheduled for next Friday).

Okay, after numerous requests, here are some belly shots. All are from Wednesday, when I was exactly 17 weeks. I'm not sure which I liked better, so I posted a few.

It's here!

Our bedding arrived tonight! We were coming up the stairs with all our groceries and there was this huge box waiting at our door. I'm so excited. It's even better than it looked in the picture. All the clouds are fluffy and the moons are velvety soft and the stars are corduroy. If only we had a crib to go ahead and set it all up. But I know, we need to wash it and paint the walls first. Okay, that's our news for now. I'll try and get a picture on Wednesday when I'm 17 weeks.

Baby bedding

Yippie!! We just bought our baby bedding. Now we've got to decide what color to paint the room. I'm thinking that green that is at the bottom in the picture, but we'll see.

16 Weeks

I'm 16 weeks pregnant today. Things are good, good, nothing big going on here. I looked really cute yesterday and almost pregnant. I was going to have Marc take a picture of me, but I forgot. Oh well. I had a super busy weekend. Saturday was Jen's Lingerie shower and Girls Day Out. So, of course I had to spend Friday getting ready for the shower, buying a veggie platter and search for lingerie. Saturday was busy with the shower, bowling, and dinner out. Sunday was the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler. No, I didn't run the 10 mile race. However, I did walk the 5K. It was really cool, the woman winner of the 10 Miler set a new world record, and I was there to see it (since the 5K hadn't started yet). I finished the 5K in 54 minutes, which isn't too bad for a pregnant girl who's been to tired to exercise lately. I even finished before the 1998 women's 10 Miler winner (she was walking because she's pregnant too, 5 months). But let me tell you, I was completely worn out by the end of the weekend!

I did have to go to the doctor's yesterday to have some blood drawn. It was a test for Down's, neural tube defects, and other chromosome abnormality. Should get the results back the end of this week or the beginning of next week.

Here's a picture of me and Jen's friend, Jen (yes, they are both named Jen) at the lingerie shower. We were making viels out of toliet paper. I was the model, Jen was the designer. I almost look pregnant.
