It's a boy!!

Now while I have to admit I was a little bummed about my baby not being a girl...the more I've thought about it, I think I'm going to love having a little boy. Mike is super pumped about it. Which I think will make this pregnancy easier for the both of his cause I'll be able to see him excited and get into the baby stuff a little more.

I loved going to the ultra sound and seeing our little man. And let me tell you, he enjoyed this little bit of mountain dew I drank before hand, but did not enjoy the fact that someone kept pushing on his home. What a weird yet amazing sensation to feel something push and move around inside of you. We're going to name him Andrew Bryan Thomas. We'll call him Drew. Andrew was Mike's great grandpa's name and Bryan was my maiden name.

Now it's time to start actually planning and buying the essentials. I think I've found the car seat/stroller set I want. It's gray and lime green. There's also a matching play pen/bassinet to go with it. And I've been thinking about room color theme and a fellow teacher gave me a great idea so now I just need to find the perfect crib bedding to match that idea. Can't wait!! Not only do I get to plan which I love to do, I get to create a check list and check things off as we go, but I also get to go shopping!! Be low are some pictures from the ultra sound.

Proof that there is indeed a boy inside me.

19 Weeks

Here I am at 19 weeks. Still doing good. I don't feel like I'm getting any bigger. But I've been told that some people don't really pop out till 6 or 7 months. Still extremely tired all the time. And I've been trying to wait as long as possible to stop sleeping on my stomach and I think that time has finally come. It's getting really uncomfortable which makes it hard to fall asleep cause I'm a big stomach sleeper. I've noticed that I'm snacking a little more. I think I've felt the baby kick, but if its it, it doesn't feel like much, just a little poke. I can't wait for the day when I can have Mike put his hand on my belly so he can feel it. We find out next Thursday if it's a boy or girl. And then we can start decorating the room and buy things. We've only bought 2 outfits so far. A UK onesie and a onesie from Disney World. Everything keeps getting more real by the minute!!
