It's a Boy!!!!

We had our ultrasound on Wednesday and found out that we are having a boy!!!! We are sooo excited to add a little boy to our family. We got to see all of his little body parts during the ultrasound. It was so amazing. We got to see the four little chambers of his heart. So far everything looks really good. He is a healthy little boy as far as we can tell. He was moving all over the place. I love the top picture because it seems like he is looking right at us. He is giving us a thumbs up in the bottom picture. He is already growing to be a big boy. He weighs 3/4 of a pound. They moved my due date up from August 17th to August 6th. The less days of being pregnant during the summer, the better:-) Now I get to start buying things for our little guy. I can't wait. Joel and I already love him so much. I can't even imagine what it is going to be like when we actually get to meet him. For right now I am enjoying feeling him move around.

16 weeks

I am really starting to show now. I still haven't gained very much weight, but my Dr. and the nurses have said it is ok. I had an appointment with my Dr. today for my thyroid. He is lowering the amount of medication I am taking and is hoping to take me off of it until after the baby is born. Everything is really going well. We scheduled our appointment for our ultrasound on March 23rd. We will find out if it is a boy or girl at this appointment. We are really excited. They will also make sure everything is developing properly at this time. I have had a lot more energy this week. I have been trying to get as much done as I can while it lasts!!!! No other news from the last week. We are just getting really excited as it gets further along:-)

This adorable Vikings set came from my Grandma Jann. I can't wait for the baby to wear it during the Vikings games!!!
