Morgan's Bedding Fabric!

So we got the material for Morgan's bedding all picked out this weekend. I'm going for pink and green with some accents of chocolate brown. The wall behind her bed will be pink with lighter pink scroll-like swirls painted on top with her Monagram in green above her bed (sorry...its kind of hard to explain) and the other 3 walls will be a very light green (like the color of the green fabric below).

Here are the main fabrics for her bedding. I'm also using a pink/brown/green stripe for some accent pillows and her curtains.

20 Weeks!!

YEA!! 1/2 way there!!! Not a big change in the bump this week, but maybe a little! Enjoy!

19 weeks and counting!

Baby bump update here! I'm 19 weeks and 1 day!!! Morgan is doing great and my belly is growing by the day it seems!!!! :-)

Josh got to feel her move for the 1st time on Friday!!! We went to dinner at BJ's in Lewisville and as we were walking in I was telling him that I hadn't felt her moving much that day; well as soon as we sat down and started looking at the menu, she started kicking me like crazy!!!! I thought it wouldn't last long, but she just kept going. So I told Josh to come sit on my side of the booth and feel. I put his hand on my belly and sure enough she kicked him!! He was a little startled by it, but it was really cute! HE LOVED IT!! And I LOVED that he got just a little experience of what I get everyday! Its the best part of being pregnant I think!!!

We had a busy weekend, I co-hosted a baby shower Saturday then we went to Oklahoma Saturday evening and this morning saw our oldest nephew Tucker get baptised!! It was great!!

Baby Bump

18 weeks!

Ok, its been 2 weeks since my last bump update. In 2 weeks, my belly has definetly grown a lot! I went Friday night and bought a pair of maternity jeans and a few pairs of slacks for work. My regular clothes all still fit but some of them put a lot of pressure on my belly. I can't believe I'm almost 1/2 way to meeting my baby girl!! :-)

Be sure to read the post below to find out her name!!!! :-)

What's in a name.....

Josh and I really liked 2 girls names and we've had a hard time deciding which to pick if our baby was a little girl....However, when we found out Friday that we were for sure having a baby girl, it was pretty easy for us to decide. One of the names just "fit". So, our baby girl's name will be:

Morgan Laurice Long

Morgan was my mom's maiden name. Obviously that makes it my grandparents last name and therefore it is very special for my family. Laurice (which is pronounced "Lor-Reese") is Josh's mom and sister's middle name. So she will be named after both our families!

It has been fun saying, "she" and "her" the past few days; it makes it so much more real!!!

Baby bump pics coming soon....I've definitely got more of a bump in the past 2 weeks!

So...Its a GIRL!!!!

We are so excited to announce that our sweet baby is a little...............GIRL!!!!!!
The sono girl said she has been doing this for a very long time and she was very sure its a baby girl. She said "If I'm wrong, I'll re-paint your nursery." So, that made me happy that she wasn't just guessing.

I'm only 17 weeks and 6 days today as I was originally supposed to have my sono next week but my OB had to be out of clinic that day so they rescheduled me to today. Well during the sono just after they told us the sex, baby turned with her back facing up/face facing down and the sonographer said she couldn't get a good look at all the anatomy. She also said that its hard to see as much of the heart as they'd like this early on as well so they want me to come back at 20 weeks to finish looking at the rest of the organs.

My OB also said I need to gain a little more weight as I'm only up 3 lbs total so far. Otherwise, all looks great.

Next sono and visit is on Nov 23rd.

Friday is the Big Day!

Well, I realized that I never posted to update that my Quad screen at 15 weeks came back normal with no increased risk of chromosomal abnormalities. YEA!!

I was supposed to go in Monday for my 18 week visit and anatomy sono but my OB's office called today to tell me she had to be out on Monday and wanted to know if they could change my appt to THIS FRIDAY or wait until the next week!!!! Of course I said YES to this Friday!!! Josh and I are so excited to find out if this is a little boy or little girl!!!!

Pray that all looks well and baby looks healthy and great!!!!!

Oh, and I've been feeling the baby move more and more everyday!!! VERY FUN!!! :-)
