Baby Portman is Growing!

Yesterday Matt and I went and had another ultrasound done. It is so amazing to see how much the baby is growing. We got to hear the heartbeat. The tech tried to get the baby to wake up and move for us, but I guess he/she just wanted to sleep. They said the baby is growing as it should and looks good. When the Dr met Matt he said "Let's hope the baby does not come out at his size!" Well let's hope not! :) The Dr was a very odd man, but nice all the same. He went over all the pictures from the ultrasound and showed us different things in each picture. He said it is to early to see the gender, but at the next one we should be able to find out. And yes we want to know!!! We will find out on September 2nd...so we will be taking bets before then! :) Matt's family already have there guesses that it is a boy! Either way we will be happy! Today I went to my regular OB for a checkup. We talked about the results from the last set of blood tests. We then talked about upcoming tests that were options and also some that would need to be done. We have decided to take both the optional tests for Cystic Fibrosis and Downs. Not really to do anything about it if they come back that we are at risk, but to be a better prepared parents for our baby. I also have a Glucose test coming up, the Dr's have decided because of my weight it would be better to check for diabetes twice through out my pregnancy. So I will be taking one at the next visit and one around 28 weeks. I guess it is better to be safe than sorry! We also listened to the heart beat...the midwife said I must have a very busy baby since the heart rate was in the 150's.


How We Found Out!

I have been meaning to add this for awhile, but time seems to be slipping away. Some of you know the story, but the is the story from the weekend leading up to and the night we found out. On May 23rd, I had a feeling that I may not be getting my anticipated period. So on my way home from work I picked up a few tests. They came out negative, but I could not shake the feeling that I was pregnant. At 1 am I had a craving for JalapeƱo chips , so I asked Matt to get me some until he finally gave in and drove to Walmart. He bought some chips and an orange Fanta. The check out lady kind of looked at him funny and he said, "My wife is pregnant!" Funny thing is that at this point Matt had no idea that I even thought I was. I got a good giggle out of it when he got home. Finally on May 27th I decided to take another test. This time I got a digital one. Well as you can see it clearly said "pregnant!!!" Even though I thought that I might be the shock of it actually saying pregnant was overwhelming. At this point I was wishing I would have waited for Matt to get home before I took it. I waited for TWO hours before he finally got home from the gym. He called and ask if I took it already and I said, "yes." I wanted him to see with his own eyes that it was positive. So I wouldn't tell him over the phone. When he got home and saw, he just smiled nonstop. For the rest of the night we just keep looking at each other and saying "we are having a baby." Nothing much has changed we still look at each other and say "we are having a baby!"
