15 Weeks Pregnant!

We are at 15 weeks pregnant! Crazy isn't it?? :) Hard to believe we are almost 4 months in to this pregnancy. Feels like it is just flying by. 

Here's our 15 weeks shot:

She's poking out there, eh? :) 

And here's one with my shirt down over my belly. I told everyone I thought it looked MUCH cuter like that, hehe!

It just pokes right out there, haha! I LOOOOVE it :) And guess what?? I have already been asked by BRAVE, BRAVE, BRAVE souls if I am expecting. I say brave because, well, I don't have that big of a belly right now and the chances of me being pregnant to me just having a belly on me are pretty good at this point, haha! But fortunately for them I said, yes I am. I am almost 4 months. I could see a sigh of relief like 'Oh, I shouldn't have asked that question, but thank God she is expecting!' LOL :)

I am so excited that we know we are having a girl! We have been busy planning her nursery this week.. and planning big sister Tayler's new BIG GIRL room ;) We bought Tayler a toddler bed for Christmas with a Yo Gabba Gabba comforter/sheets set. So, after Christmas, we are going to start on her big girl room. My mom is making her Yo Gabba Gabba curtains and I purchased some cling-on giant Yo Gabba Gabba characters for her wall.. and Ethan is building her a cubby for her books, diapers, etc. It's going to be painted Yo Gabba Gabba colors :) I am SO excited.

And then once we get Tayler's big girl room at least started and her bed up, we can move the crib in to Sawyer's nursery. I think we have settled on a purple room for her with black and white accents. I've been working on some things for her wall. I am just so excited to get started and see the outcome of it all :) Lots to do after Christmas! January will be redoing both girl's rooms; February will be planning Tayler's 2nd birthday; March is my birthday, my dad's birthday, my sister's birthday, then Tayler's birthday party; April is Ethan's birthday, and then I'll be full term April 17th. Crazy right?? I feel like it's going to fly with all of the stuff we have to do! 

Alright. And now for the questions:

How far along? 15 weeks
Total Weight Gain?  Last time I checked it was 4.2 pounds. 
Maternity Clothes? Nope, just a belly band!
Stretch Marks? As I said last time, I'm not really sure? I had some with Tayler, but I don't see any new ones. I lather my belly in cocoa butter in hopes it will help this time!
Sleep?  I swear I am getting pregnancy insomnia. It was awful this past week, haha, but MUCH better last night!
Best Moment of This Week:  We found out we are having another gorgeous baby girl!
Miss Anything?  Not having to cover my belly every time I am around Tayler, haha! That girl is WILD and I'm so scared she's going to hit my belly in some way lol 
Movement? You're probably going to look at me like I'm crazy but I felt FLUTTERS this week. It was when my pants were kind of tight and I had my knees up against my chest. I could feel fluttering like she wasn't a fan! :)
Food Cravings? Hmmmm. Pot Roast!
Anything Make You Queasy/Sick? Dirty dishes. Poopy diapers. The smell of pee-pee.
Gender: It's a GIRL. 
Labor Signs? No way! Thank God!
Symptoms: Nausea. Peeing a lot. Sore boobies!
Belly Button In or Out? She's an innie!
Weddings Rings On Or Off? On for now! :)
Happy or Moody this week?  Happy! We found out we are having a girl and my brother got married Saturday! Beautiful week! 
Looking Forward To:  Thanksgiving next week with our families!

Cheers to 15 weeks... on to 16 weeks!

We Are Having A..........................

Yesterday was


That's right, folks.

My brother got married on Saturday in Dublin. It was a gorgeous wedding. I am so thankful that I have a new sister-in-law :) We had SO much fun. I think we were all worn out every night we were there from all of the activities, haha! :) 

And we figured since we were already up near Columbus, we would just schedule an ultrasound at Ultrasona so we could find out 'who' the baby was early! I know.. I know.. most people wait until like 18-20 weeks, but you must not know about me. I don't have patience, haha! :) 

I almost HAD to have patience though! 

We got there and headed back to the ultrasound room. My mom, dad, brother Brad, Tayler, and Ethan were with me. Everyone got settled on the couch and the ultrasound technician started looking at the baby. We got some great shots of the baby. They were moving around like crazy though. It was hilarious. 

He/she had their hands up by their ears in this one :)  Adorable!

The ultrasound technician did some measurements because the baby wasn't really cooperating to let us know what gender it was. They kept their feet tucked up under them in an indian style almost the entire time, haha! We found out during measurements though that the baby is 5" long and weights about 4-5 ounces. Such a wittle thing! 

I felt so bad for the ultrasound technician, haha! She kept trying to get the baby to move it's feet but they just were not having it. I got up and walked around... jumped a little. NOTHING, haha! They just kept their feet under their booty. I honestly thought we weren't going to be able to find out. Finally, the ultrasound technician offered one last resort...

She said, 'You can do an internal ultrasound since the baby is breeched and we should be able to get a better view of the bottom.' I hadn't had one of these done before, so I was a little skeptical, but I was also desperate, haha! So everyone cleared the room so we could get set up. She started the ultrasound, everyone came in, and IMMEDIATELY she got pictures of WHO our baby was. 

Are you ready?? :)

Any guesses??? BOY OR GIRL???

It's a......................................


Can you believe it?? :)

I think everyone was shocked because like 90% of the people I polled.. including my husband and my mother.. thought it was going to be a boy, but I just had this gut feeling it was a girl :) We are SOOO happy to be adding another baby girl to our family. I know our sweet Tayler is going to be a great big sister. 

We have decided on her name as well :)

Sawyer (pronounced SAW-yer NOT Soy-yer lol) Kellylynn. (We are using Kelly/Lynn because my mom's middle name is Kelly and Ethan's mom's middle name is Lynn and we wanted to combine them as opposed to her having two middle names!) 

We are SO thrilled and we hope you are too! Thanks for joining us on this journey :) 22-25 weeks left to go! :)
