The big ultra sound

IT'S A GIRL!!!!!
We are having a sweet baby girl, and we're so so so so excited!!!! It was so fun, both Jesse's parents and Julie and my parents were all there to see the ultra sound. Jesse and I went in first by ourselves and the u/s tech told us that it's a girl (she's 99.9% sure) and then Jesse went a got our family and brought them into the room with us. That's when we told them it's a girl and they were able to see her moving around a stuff on the screen. Everyone was sooooo excited!! She sure was moving a lot. She would hardly stay still for the u/s tech to get the pictures she needs for measuring the heart and brain and stuff like that, that the doctor will look at. She kept flipping around, kicking her legs and moving her little arms around. I could have watched her all day long, it makes me soooo excited! After the ultra sound me and my mom and dad went baby shopping, it was so much fun finally being able to look for and buy baby clothes which is something that we have been anxiously holding off to do till we found out what it was going to be. We didn't go crazy or anything but we did get a few, pretty adorable things. Here are some of the pictures we got from the ultra sound and of the family all waiting in the waiting room to find out.

17 weeks

We had another good doctor visit Tuesday, good strong heartbeat of 148 bpm. I think I have officially started to show a little baby bump, people have started telling me that I'm showing, even though I knew I was showing a long time ago (at least I felt bigger around my waist). I'm ready for it to start looking like a baby belly. We go in for our anatomy ultra sound on Oct. 9, can't wait!!

Your pregnancy: 17 weeks

How your baby's growing:

Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop
