Well, the Gender Party was a success and a lot of fun! Heath and I were so surprised to see blue balloons come out because we were both convinced it was a girl! To top off the day, Heath got to feel baby boy kick that night (Heath thinks its a sign that the baby wants to show him he wants to play football).
Thank you to my sister-in-law Hope for taking these cute pictures!
Thought I would post an 18 week photo for my sisters and mom who keep asking to see my bump! Well here it is! I feel like I've just "popped" out in the last couple weeks and people are starting to notice now that I'm pregnant, not just fat around the middle.
I am continuing to work, which I keep telling myself is a blessing....I guess I have good days and bad days so I just need to suck it up!
Heath won a trip to London through work so he leaves tomorrow for 1 week...this is the longest we've been away from each other since we've been married! I am all for him going and really excited for him but now that it's here I'm really sad! I guess I'm more sad because I have my 20 week scan while he is away, which I could of rescheduled for the next week so he could be there but Heath is so impatient and couldn't wait so I'm keeping it the same date.
But we decided to do something different to find out the sex of the baby...I'm going to have the doctor put the gender in an envelope (won't have him tell us at the appointment) and then we are going to have a "Sex Party" (not what it sounds like!) with all friends and family so we can all find out the gender at the same time. So I will give the envelope to one of Heath's sisters and they will put a bunch of colored helium balloons in a box (pink for girl, blue for boy) and then we'll open the box at the party (saw it on Pinterest). We will record it and show it to my family so they can feel apart of it too! This way, essentially Heath and I find out at the same time!
