My Milestones & Events

On January 22, 2014 at 40 weeks 0 days pregnant
My Baby's Birthday!
Our planned Caesarian went perfectly smoothly, and the little man was born at 3:44 PM. I'm so in love. My heart is full.

On January 20, 2014 at 39 weeks 5 days pregnant
Started Maternity Leave
On January 11, 2014 at 38 weeks 3 days pregnant
Installed Car Seat
On January 5, 2014 at 37 weeks 4 days pregnant
Finished the Nursery
It has been done for a while, but we hadn't hung the decor on the walls until now. SO FINAL! I can't wait to bring him home!

Packed for the Hospital/Birth Center
On November 23, 2013 at 31 weeks 3 days pregnant
Baby Shower
The shower was thrown by a group of my husband's childhood friends. The weather was SO nasty - ice and rain and 28 degrees! - so the turnout wasn't what we expected. The few of us that did show up had the best time, though!

I'm so humbled and grateful. We received everything we possibly could have asked for (swing, playpen, bouncer, travel system, glider, even a handmade bassinet from FIL!) and we will be wanting for nothing. All we'll have to purchase at this point are diapers and wipes - AMAZED! Everyone was so generous. I cried twice, in the best possible way.

The photo is (left to right) my mother, myself, MIL, and grandmother-in-law.

Found Out Baby's Gender
After having ourselves convinced that it was a girl... there's no denying that it's a BOY! I would have been thrilled either way but am so pumped - my DH wanted a boy so badly!

We started making phone calls to family the second we walked out of the doctor's office. :)

NT Scan
Any measurement less than 3mm is good, and we were sitting pretty at between 0.91mm and 1.21mm. The fDNA results for Down's were 1:>10,000 and the fDNA results for the trisomys were 1:>10,000. Essentially, it looks like we have a healthy LO in there!

Picked a Name
Lillian Rae or David Wyatt.

On July 13, 2013 at 11 weeks 2 days pregnant
Started Wearing Maternity Clothes
It's so very early and my expanding tummy sure isn't baby - it's all bloat. Enough bloat that I can't button my pants anymore!

On July 2, 2013 at 9 weeks 5 days pregnant
First Prenatal Appointment
Transvaginal ultrasound. Baby bean measuring 6d behind (9w5d). HB - 174! Officially moved the due date from 1/24/13. Scheduled a tentative date for repeat c-section on January 22, 2014.

Told My Boss About My Pregnancy
I told my supervisor, Erin. She was happy, thank goodness!

First Ultrasound
Transvaginal ultrasound. Baby bean measuring 7d behind (6w4d) but nobody seems too concerned about that. HB was great - 134!

Heard Baby's Heartbeat for the First Time
On May 25, 2013 at 5 weeks 1 day pregnant
Announced Pregnancy to Family
Wrapped onesies like presents and gave them to Brad's parents. So sweet - Sharla just covered her face for about five minutes. ;)

On May 21, 2013 at 4 weeks 4 days pregnant
First HCG/Progesterone Test
On May 19, 2013 at 4 weeks 2 days pregnant
First Positive Pregnancy Test
On May 19, 2013 at 4 weeks 2 days pregnant
Told Husband/Partner
He is the one that encouraged me to go POAS. I brought it out and handed it to him. He briefly glanced at it and said, "Oh well, maybe tomorrow." I said, "What are you talking about? That's positive!" to which he responded (without looking at the test again) "Darlin', one line means negative."

Lol. Look again, buddy. Look again. ;)
