The Count Down

Wow...where has the time gone?  It seems like just yesterday the little test said "PREGNANT". I now am in my 24th week.  Only 15 weeks or less to go.  You mathematicians might have figured out that is only 39 weeks.   The goal is to make it to 39 weeks but with gestational diabetes and mild preeclampsia that might not be realistic.  The fetal medicine doctor has told us to be prepared for a May baby and pray for a June baby.  Eric and I have been working very hard to get ready for our little girl.

Adam's 30!

Last weekend we went to the Brouwer's for Adam's 30th birthday party.  Adam is a huge Saints fan and loves New Orleans.  So they hosted an authentic crawfish boil with all the New Orleans sides.  I think Eric ate about 75 crawfish.  It was fun to hang out with friends and experience new food together. 

Happy 30th Adam

22 Weeks

I am always looking for a reason to throw a party! So last week Eric and I hosted a gender reveal party! We had our ultra sound on Friday.  We had the ultra sound tech write the gender down on a piece of paper and put it in a sealed envelope.  We then gave the envelope to a neighbor who called the baker and told her the gender.  Our neighbor kept the envelope until the party!  I felt like a little kid...the anticipation was almost overwhelming.  Will I have a son or daughter?

Let the cutting begin...

It's a girl and I so shocked...I was for sure it was a boy.

It is more than a pink cake. It is the beginning of knowing I will have a daughter.

Gender Reveal Video


At my 22 week ultra sound I had the ultra sound tech write the gender down on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope.  After the appointment I gave the envelope to my neighbor who called the baker!  Last night we had our family over to find out boy or girl??

21 Weeks

Today was a super exciting day for Eric and I, we ordered Baby Strobel's crib and dresser! I searched the internet for hours upon hours and once I narrowed it down Eric jumped in and gave his opinion!  We decided on the Delta series in black! Next on our list is to pick a paint color for the room but before we do that we want to find out the gender.  Next Friday I am scheduled for an ultra sound.   As long as Baby Strobel cooperates we will have the ultra sound tech write the gender down on a piece of paper and seal the envelope.  After the ultra sound appointment we will go straight to the bakery and hand over the envelope.  The next day we will be hosting a gender reveal party for our family and close friends.   We will cut into the cake to find either pink or blue? I am so excited I can hardly contain myself!
