It's a.......

It's a.......

We had a great ultrasound. First we did the anatomy scan which took about 30 minutes. Everything looked perfect. The doctor came in to talk to us because he had to leave and go deliver a baby. He mainly wanted to tell us about swine flu and for us to call if we even thought we had been around someone who had it. Since he interrupted the ultrasound the tech forgot to make our video. She said that we could either do it when we came back or go to the nurse and then she would come get us after her next patient. We chose to wait so we could get the video. We went back in and got to see our baby for 15 more minutes. She is perfect!!!

When we left the Dr we went to pick up balloons. I got black balloons and pink confetti. On our way home I put confetti in the balloons and blew them up. We went to my parent's house first and let them pop their balloons. It was awesome when the confetti exploded everywhere. A perfect way to tell them. We then told my mom that we were giving the baby her middle name...I think it meant a lot to her!! Our baby girl is going to be called McKenzie Joy!! After that we watched the video;) Next we went to Brandon's sister's house and let her pop her balloon!! We then made our rounds to Brandon's dad's house. We had told his mom right after the Dr's appointment. She met us in the parking lot because she is in nursing school right now. All in all it went great. Everyone was really excited. I will post the pics of everyone popping their balloons when I can..I forgot the camera at my SIL's house.
We are so excited to know what we are having and can't wait to hold her in our arms!!!

The best feeling in the world!!

I was just reading people's blogs and had to stop and post about the best feeling in the world. For the past week I have been feeling little twitches where the baby is...I know where CM is because of the doppler. Well I was reading the blogs and I felt those twitches so I said "I feel you CM" and right after I felt a KICK...I had placed my had on my belly after the twitch and could even feel it on my hand...AMAZING!! Definately the best feeling in the world. Keep making your presence known CM. On Thursday we will hopefully be able to find out the gender!!! I hope everyone has a wonderful evening;)

Great Day

I had a great day yesterday!! I met 2 of my friends. One just had a baby and the other is 23 weeks pregnant. We went to lunch at a great restaurant and then we went to have massages. All I can say about the massage is that an hour isn't long enough;) I wish I could have taken the lady home with me!! To bad I can't afford to have one every week!! Last night Brandon and I met his sister and her two kids, his mom, and grandma for dinner at a new Mexican restaurant. It was lots of fun!! Today I am going to my parents to celebrate my dad's birthday!! My brother and his new girlfiend are in from Memphis so I get to see them too;) I hope everyone has a great day!!

One question

Is lower back pain common around 15 weeks or should I check with the Dr? I'm also thinking about getting a prenatal massage...anyone recommend?? I felt so horrible yesterday that I have to do something. It was my worst day yet...threw-up ( I thought the 2nd trimester meant no more throwing up;), migraine, and backache!! I didn't even get out of my pj's. I hope you ladies have a wonderful day!
