20 weeks: It's A...

I am somehow halfway through this pregnancy which completely blows my mind. I seriously have felt so great overall and have little to no complaints thus far. Okay, Okay- I know you all just want the details. Yesterday's appointment went AMAZING and we found out we're having...
A BOY!! :) :) :)

We were going to be shocked either way but hearing those actual words made everything so real and even more exciting. We had the best ultrasound tech ever, she really took her time with us, gave us TONS of photos and shared in our excitement as well. Linda- you rock!

I had a lot of nerves going into the appointment. Everyone has been asking me if I've felt the little one move yet and since I haven't, it was making me nervous. Luckily my doctor said everything looks absolutely perfect and we got to see that little baby wiggling around on the ultrasound. There have been a few times I thought maybe I felt a flutter or something- but as soon as I'd think it, it would be over. Hoping to feel those real little kicks and jabs soon!

After Jared and I found out we got breakfast at IHOP and basically smiled through the entire meal... Also, this might be my new favorite photo of this stud ;) Proud dad already!

We went to Target and picked out our first OFFICIAL outfit for our little guy. It was hard not to buy everything in sight! We grabbed a couple things and put a cute outfit in a gift bag to tell our parents with that afternoon. It was so, SO much fun spreading the news with family near and far. We were able to snap photos of the people we told in person.

I think I'll be on cloud nine for a little while longer and then- it's on to project nursery! :)

  5. Yes! I had an actual guess and it was right! Also, probably due to the fact that I was looking at your Instagram pic last night, but I dreamed I was at your reveal party (where you said you were having a boy). There was an escalator everyone was riding and that's basically all i remember....

  8. A Bengals Baby Boy!! You are going to love being a #boyMom. While girls have their perks, of course, being a mommy to a boy is something totally explainable. Congratulations and welcome to the best club ever ;)

  23. Yay! I always just assumed I'd have girls (my family is very matriarchal), so I was in shock when I found out... but I'm here to tell you that little boys are AMAZING. Super fun. And isn't seeing the wiggling on ultrasound the best? Almost as good as feeling baby kicks, which I'm sure you will before you know it :)
