Drum roll please....

We're having a baby girl! We are so happy we don't have to call our baby IT anymore and we now get to call our baby HER/SHE! One of these days she'll have a name too! We didn't get see very clear girl parts but we saw between the legs and a flat legged profile and there are no boy parts to be found. But because our Doc didn't see super clear girl parts he couldn't guarantee 100% that it is a girl but he said I would buy girl stuff and maybe one boy thing just in case and well, that's good enough for me!
She is growing right on target, and as you can see in the photo below, she has a very cute profile. Looks like she has her Mama's chubby cheeks too. :o) Our little girl was moving her little hands around, and wiggling all over the place. It was so fun to see her. My due date hasn't changed but she did measure a couple days larger. Thank you all for participating in the gender poll and congrats to the 25 of you who guessed right! It was so fun to check everyday to see what the count was up to. Not only were the 25 of you who guessed girl right but so were Nick and I! We were both pretty proud of ourselves!
A lot of you have been asking if we have picked a name yet and well, we have like five. One of these day's we will narrow it down to maybe two names, but I think I want to see her before we give her a definite name but who knows, maybe I'll change my mind. Here she is, our sweet baby girl!

Half Way There!

20 weeks today! I can't believe we're half way there already! I hope that this pregnancy continues to fly by this fast. Thursday is our big ultrasound. We are hoping the baby doesn't decide to be modest, we REALLY want to know what we're having. If you haven't voted in the poll on our side bar please do so! So far girl is winning but we'll have to wait until Thursday to see which gender wins.

I have been feeling pretty dang good lately. I am still tired a lot of the the time but that's to be expected. Growing a baby is hard work, dang it! The baby moves around a lot more now and I can tell the difference between kicks, rolls and nudges. It is so fun! I absolutely love being pregnant!

It's Labor day weekend and in Ellensburg that means the fair and rodeo come to town. Nick and I did our usual festivities this year. We went to the rodeo parade on Saturday, in the rain and all. Even though it seems to be the same parade every year we go anyway. Its a tradition! Nick isn't a huge fan of the whole rodeo but he likes the bull riding, so we like to go to the Xtreme Bull riding event where it is just bull riding all night. We had a lot of fun! I forgot to check the battery on my camera before we got there and went to take a picture and you guessed it, it was dead! So I apologize for not having any pictures.

I survived my first week at my new job and I am LOVING it!!! The Nurses, Dr's and aids that I get to work with have all been so welcoming and patient with me as I am learning. I have learned so many new things this week but I know that it will take me a while to get everything down. I got to witness an epidural being done, an episiotomy, and a delivery all for the first time. Not to mention I got to hang out with lots of cute babies this week. :o) I loved getting to view the delivery, it was such a miraculous thing to witness. It's a miracle in its self to even get pregnant but than to have that pregnancy progress to full term is a miracle! Especially since statistics show that 1 out of 3 pregnancies end in miscarriage. To see the things a woman's body can do get that baby out is also amazing! It was really a testament to me that the body is designed by Heavenly Father. I don't know how anyone can witness a birth and see that beautiful new baby and still not believe in God or at least a higher power. Life is a miraculous thing!
