Office baby shower
We have a group at work called the Sunshine Committee and they do things like birthday treats, get togetherness etc... For members. On Friday they gave me a baby shower! It was very nice. There was a beautiful, and yummy, cake. They also all went in and got me the car seat I wanted. It was the last major thing we needed for baby.

Prental Tests: Glucose Challenge Test
I took the day off work since this is an hour long test and I had my 28 week appointment right after the test. Everything went well with the appointment and I passed my test :-). I also took my son back to the doctor for his cold. I can't wIt till he is better!

Found Out Baby's Gender
We had our anatomy scan today and we found out we are having another baby boy! Everyone was hopping for a girl but I KNEW it would be a boy :-). I am excited for another boy. After our appointment we went to Babies R Us and made our registry.

Started Wearing Maternity Clothes
I broke down and finally got some maternity clothes today. I was to the point where I had one pair of jeans that fit and 3 outfits I was rotating through for work. So far I've only had to get maternity pants but I know the tops are coming!

Told My Boss About My Pregnancy
So, I waited until after my school was SACS accredited, a big deal, before telling my boss that I would most likely be going out sometime around Spring break and then for the rest of the year. Come to find out he already knew! My sub that I have already lined up for maternity leave told him :-P

Felt My Baby Move for the First Time
I believe I am feeling baby move! I'm having poking and rolling sensations in my abdomen. The other night I was laying on my stomach weird and I KNOW I felt the baby squirm!

First Prenatal Appointment
Had our first visit with the Dr. today :) Everything went very well. It was an easy exam for me since I'd already had my yearly visit. Then we went for an ultrasound and it actually looked a little like a baby and less like a peanut! We heard, and saw, the heart beat <3 Then downstairs to have blood drawn. Even that wasn't too bad, the nurse was very good and I barely felt anything at all :)

On September 9, 2014 at 7 weeks 4 days pregnant
Heard Baby's Heartbeat for the First Time
We heard the fetal heartbeat for the first time at our first prenatal appointment. The tech said it sounded good and though I can't remember the exact number it was up in the 160's and it was at 7w4d.

On September 9, 2014 at 7 weeks 4 days pregnant
First Ultrasound
We got to see peanut for the first time at our first prenatal appointment. It was at 7w4d and we saw the baby and the yolk sac. We were also able to hear/see the heartbeat. It was really cool because we got a 3D scan which we didn't get with baby #1.

On August 30, 2014 at 6 weeks 1 day pregnant
Announced Pregnancy to Family
We gave my mom her birthday present on Sat. It was a gift bag with baby booties, a bottle, and pacies in it. She pulled out the bottle, looked at it for a second and then shouted "You're Pregnant!" :) She was very excited all day long and told everyone she met. We called/saw a few other people like my grandmother, my cousin, and my MIL before we went public on FB with the news.

First Positive Pregnancy Test
I am 6 days late and was not expecting to get a BFP but took a test, my last one, anyway and surprise surprise! 2 pink lines! Now I just have to find a way to tell my husband.

On August 21, 2014 at 4 weeks 6 days pregnant
Told Husband/Partner
I was able to make it home before Bobby and take another test. Once Bobby got home with Oliver I gave the test to Oliver and told him to go give it to daddy. At first Bobby thought it was a highlighter LOL but then he realized what it was and was speechless :)
