Ribbons and Bows

This past Thursday we had our first sonogram and we're going to have a baby GIRL! Sean and I both had a feeling that it was a girl, although we also knew we only had a 50% chance of being right. As such, we weren't really surprised by the news, but I was very surprised at how amazing a baby only 15 weeks gestation looks! 
She was kicking and flipping around - so surreal because I can't yet feel her movements. I was thankful for our doctor's suggestion to try to find the gender out at 15 weeks because it was such a blessing to see little miss for the first time. Sean is already pretty smitten with the idea of a little girl and I'm pretty sure my mom has already started to buy some stuff for her. I perused the baby section at Target this weekend -- so. much. baby. stuff. Do they really need all of that?! So $$$, too!

How far along: 15 weeks 
Size of baby: An apple - about 4 inches long 
Gender: A girl! We are close to a name selection, too, I think.
Maternity clothes: Not yet, but some clothes are starting to feel uncomfortable. I did buy the tights I have on in the pic above from Target -- they have a wide elastic waistband that has proven quite comfy today.
Weight gain: 1 lb so far. My apetite has for sure been stronger this week.
Movement: Not yet.
Sleep: Still going to bed pretty early (cough...7:30 last night). I had some back discomfort last night, but think I was just sleeping in a weird position.
Symptoms: Still pretty tired. No crazy cravings yet -- if something sounds good and we don't have it, I can usually find a reasonable substitute.
Best moment this week: Seeing baby Huddleston for the first time. So amazing that at just 4 inches long she looks like a baby! I guess I thought she would still look a little alien-ish or something? :) 


  1. You look great! How exciting to see her flipping around -- it could be just a few weeks before you feel her. Crazy!

  2. Love your blog! My husband, Sean, and I are expecting a little on as well! I've nominated you for the Liebster Award, it's for blogs with less than 200 followers. Check out my blog, http://everythingshunkydorey.blogspot.com/, to see what it's all about! Congrats!
