I had my second appointment today (I'm in my 9th week) and it went very well! I got to hear the little heart beat!! I was so excited!! I wanted to start crying but I held it together! It was so amazing hearing my baby's heart beating right inside my belly. I couldn't believe how it made me feel. Then I got to have another ultra sound and actually SEE the heart beat! It was awesome! I don't have the new ultra sound picture scanned into the computer yet so I'll have to post it later but there's a lot more to see now, although it's still a little peanut! It's amazing and awesome how life forms and so exciting to see each stage of life forming. I also found out that I should know by my 17th week what the sex of the baby is. My doctor was very nice and personable and I think I'm going to like her. I just can't wait to know what I'm having!! It will be so exciting to know and be able to start calling it by it's name. Which brings me to my next update: we have boy and girl names!! Since there are so many pregnant people around me I'm going to go ahead and announce them so that no one steals mine! lol. jk, but seriously, I don't want any awkwardness in the future weeks if me and someone else came out with our names at the same time and we had the same name picked out. Anyways, without any further ado:
Boy - Julian Bryce
Girl - Brooklyn Alivia
Now, I'm not saying these are set in STONE but I'm pretty sure I love them both! The only reason I would change either of them would be if I came across a name that I loved even more and just KNEW it had to be that one. So let me know what you think of my names!
Nothing else that interesting going on in our life here. Work is work and I'm already ready for Christmas break! It's so cold and windy today I felt like I might die from hypothermia walking to my car tonight after the basketball game at my school!
Hope everyone is enjoying the cold weather wherever you are!! Merry Christmas Shopping!! :)
