Gender Reveal Party
I’m officially halfway there – 5 months preggo! We visited the doctor yesterday and those are my favorite days of the month! This was especially special because I got to see our baby! Man he’s growing! The doc said he was extremely active…at a boy! When she showed me the pic below, she had me guess what it was. I was like “Umm I’m pretty sure that’s a boy.” It took no time at all to find out whether or not it was a boy or girl! Last time he did not cooperate as well so I was very proud of him! We did a gender reveal party (see below). She said everything looked very good. He’s got a full stomach, which means he’s swallowing properly; bones forming properly, 4 chambers of heart clearly seen; hemispheres in brain very prevalent! I am in awe that he grows and all I’m doing is eating. God is amazing! To start as small as the dot in a period and grow to 9 inches with arms and legs is just miraculous! I am enjoying this pregnancy very much! I can’t say there is one thing I wish I didn’t have yet! It’s a blessing to have symptoms because that means I have a baby! I’m in love with him already and I just want to hold him RIGHT NOW! Here is proof he’s a boy: It’s like he’s sitting on a glass table with his legs open and you’re viewing this from underneath the table.
Here is my belly at 5 months:
CUPCAKE GENDER GIVEAWAY:
So I know a lot of people are doing this now days, but I first heard it from my friend Kristen who told me a long time ago before I was pregnant that when I did get pregnant I should tell people by putting a colored icing in a cupcake. It was so much fun! We were going to put it in just one, but we decided to go ahead and put it in all of them so everyone could see it at once. The reactions were great and it was so much fun! I will have to say that I have some of the most amazing family and friends who actually CARE about something like the gender. I know I love it, but I try to be careful to realize not everyone is going to be as happy about my pregnancy as I am. It made me feel really special that my family and friends were there and were interested. I will never forget that! My mom and dad were so nice to have it at their house and provide dinner for everyone as well! Does this boy have great support or what?! So a lot of people are asking me about names. I’m hesitant to put any ideas on here, but hopefully no one I know will take this straight from me before I have mine. 😉 We have a TON of names for this little boy, but our front runner is Beckham, along with Grayson and Landon. Not sure yet though so we’ll see. We both feel funny about naming him too soon before he’s born! Here are some pictures:
