Baby... GIRL!

WE ARE HAVING A BABY

GIRL!!!


I was absolutely convinced we were having a boy.
There was no way thatwas having a girl.
I grew up with four brothers and no sisters!
I was bound to have a boy.
And although I would love a family full of boys, 
I COULDN'T BE MORE THRILLED TO BE HAVING MY BABY GIRL.


 Here is to lots of shopping, girl talk, and a lifetime of being best friends!

Telling Our Little Secret


We found out that we were expecting pretty early..
I was only 5 weeks along!

At 8 weeks, I had some tests done and was low on progesterone & was considered high risk until my levels went up.
I was a pretty nervous about losing the baby because my mom was low in the same hormone and had 5 miscarriages due to this same problem.
So you can imagine my nerves!

The good news was I was definitely showing signs of pregnancy.
I was SO sick.
I couldn't keep anything down except for Top Ramen.. now just thinking about ramen makes me sick!
However, I had never been so thankful to be sick.
In my mind, as long as I was still sick, I was still pregnant!

At almost 11 weeks pregnant, my progesterone levels were double what they needed to be!
OUR PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED.

We couldnt wait any longer, we had to share with everyone our exciting news.

Come August, our little family of two, will grow to three.

We Are PREGNANT!

I woke up on New Years Eve, excited to start the new year.
I went on a morning run and thoughts about 2015 were flowing through my mind. 
It was a great year.
But I had a feeling 2016 was going to be even better!

&& boy was I right.



After my run my family, Ammon, and I all went downtown to get some delicious crepes! 

Clearly Amm loved them.. Ha!

When we were finished, we were still hungry and decided to go to La Hacienda.

You could say our day was full of eating, eating, and more EATING!

After some spicy Mexican food my mom and Natalie wanted to go shopping.

Normally I would never pass up shopping but I was not feeling good.

I had an awful headache & just wanted to go home to rest.
Not like me at all! 

As soon as we got home I told Ammon I was going to take a pregnancy test. 
I was 9 days late!
He tried talking me out of it because the month before I was 9 days late and wasn't pregnant so he wanted me to wait another day or two.
But I couldn't wait.
(I think a little part of me new..)

We waited a couple of minutes.. minutes that felt like forever!
Finally I looked down and I let out a little scream
"There are two lines!!!!!!"



We were both jumping up and down, hugging and kissing each other, and squeeling like little kids!
I HAD NEVER FELT SO MUCH HAPPINESS!

After a couple of minutes I wasn't completely convinced due to the fact that the test we used was from All a Dollar.. so we went to Walgreens and bought the most expensive one we could find! HA.


Three positive tests later..
It really hit us...
WE ARE HAVING A BABY!

& we could not be happier.
