We found out what we are having!

On Saturday we drove down to Wichita, Kansas which is about a 3 hour drive for us.We had an appointment at a 3d/4d place to get an ultrasound done so we could finally find out the sex of our baby. We just did the 2d for now since we were there specifically to find out the sex. We'll be doing the 3d/4d in about 6 weeks. It was so amazing to find out what our baby is! We are having a....

We are extremely excited! Jon and the rest of my family had all been saying before we knew that they thought he would indeed be a boy. Wichita has a lot more shopping opportunities so we took the rest of the day to go to Babies R Us to get things we needed. We left Babies R Us with a Chicco travel system. We also went to JCPenney's because they were having a huge sale and we bought baby clothes! I had got our pack n play about a week prior to our appointment. I ordered it online and had it shipped to us. It was a gender nuetral one since with didn't know yet what we were having. We're now waiting for our nursery furniture to be shipped to us.

Don't mind me with no makeup. This was me at 21 weeks and 4 days. I am 22 weeks today.

 Sorry for the blurry picture.

We have a stubborn baby on our hands!

I had my doctor appointment yesterday. It was awful. I had checked three or four times prior to my appointment that I was getting an anatomy scan. Each person I talked to said it was in their system for me to have one. So I show up at 4:30pm yesterday (20 minutes early) to fill out some paperwork. My actual appointment was at 4:50pm. 5:10 rolls around and a receptionist calls me up front to sign a paper. I told her my appointment was supposed to be 20 minutes ago and what does she tell me? "You'll be fine." I was so shocked at the way she said it that I didn't say anything back. Normally I don't tolerate rude people. I finally got called back at 5:40pm. Yep, almost an hour after my scheduled appointment. So I'm talking with the nurse about the anatomy scan and she says I'm not down for one. I was already irritated from them running late and when said I wasn't getting the sonogram I really wanted to rip into her. I remained calm and collected though. She told me they don't normally do them for first time appointments (I was seeing this doctor for the first time). So she goes and talks to the doctor about it and comes back and tells me they will do it but it's going to have to be quick. At this point I could care less about finding out the sex than I do about making sure my child is growing right on track. The nurse takes us back into the sono room and we then proceeded to wait another 45 minutes for the doctor. FINALLY, the doctor comes in and she does her thing. We didn't end up leaving there until 7pm. It's actually weird, this particular doctor office doesn't close until 8pm. I had never heard of that.

Good news? Our baby is growing right on track and is developing wonderfully!

Bad news? Our baby was laying across and on it's side (His/her back was facing outwards). So we couldn't find out the sex. Needless to say I was bummed about that part.

I scheduled a 3d/4d appointment for next Saturday. Fingers crossed that we will find out what this little munchkin is! If not we have to wait until August 31st for my next doctor appointment.

It's been way too long!

I haven't had internet since May which explains my lack of writing. I've now been in Kansas for almost a full month. The first two weeks were super hard being so far away from my family. Every now and then I still get sad about not being able to hop in my car and visit my Nana or other family. I am currently 20 weeks and 1 day pregnant. It's seriously been so easy going. I've had no morning sickness at all. My face breaking out has calmed down in the last two weeks. I'm just now starting to feel our little peanut's movements. It's still faint but it's amazing knowing I'm growing a tiny human inside of me.

I did have one scare a couple of days after I get here to Kansas. I was welcomed by Kansas with some eighteen wheeler throwing a rock at my window and leaving a crack. So the next day I was outside with the repair man (he makes house calls) while he was doing his thing. It was only 80 degrees outside at the time. I was outside for about half an hour when I started to feel nauseous then my ears started ringing and I felt dizzy. Then my hearing went muffled and I couldn't see anything. I started to tumble forward (I was leaning my hip onto my car) and caught myself on my car. The poor old man working on my windshield was freaked out. He asked if I needed anything and I said water but my speech was slurred. I leaned on my car until I gained my sight and hearing back. I then slowly walked to the house to get water and call Jon. He hurried home and took me to the er. They admitted me asap. They gave me fluids and took a urine sample. They came back and told me I had a urinary tract infection. They then gave me an antibiotic and gave me a prescriptions for one.They said it could cause what happened to me. It definitely was scary.

I saw this on another blog that I thought I would fill out.

How far along? 20 weeks and 1 day, 19 weeks and 6 days to go!

How big is baby? About 7 inches and 11 ounces, so may what to expect app says.

Gender? Don't know yet.

Weight gain? As of July 18th I haven't gained a single pound. That's actually good for me seeing that I went into this pregnancy weighing more than I should.

Symptoms? My back has been starting to ache.

Food cravings? Chuy's or Chick-Fil-A. If I want Chuy's I have to go back to Texas and if I want Chick-Fil-A then I have to drive 63 miles to get it.

Sleep? I toss and turn all.night.long. We are sleeping on an air matress though at the moment so that could be why.

Movement? It's real faint right now.
Stretch Marks? Sadly, small ones on my boobs :/

Belly Button? I've always had a deep belly button and it's still currently the same.

What I am looking forward to? My anatomy scan tomorrow! I'm really hoping to find out the gender!!!
