My Pregnancy Ticker

I realized that lots of people are asking my due date and my ticker is so far back in the blog that no one can find it. So here it is again!

Follow-up Ultrasound

So we were able to go in for another ultrasound. The first ultrasound revealed a Cyst in the brain. What we were able to find out is that in extremely rare cases it can be an indicator of Trisomy 18. After having this second ultrasound we were able to see that there were no other factors such as a physical deformity to support any suspicions for this. After plugging in all of the factors, the chances of it being Trisomy 18 are 1 in 2,400. The doctors offered us an amnio but did not strongly recommend it. There is also genetic blood testing but that is not a definitive marker and could cause unnecessary stress with a false positive. We decided in the end that we did not want to chance complications from an amnio or the chances of a false positive with the blood test. We are just going to leave it in God's hands. The doctors are not concerned and do not believe we have anything to worry about. So we have some great, detailed ultrasound photos as a result of all of this craziness and would like to share them with you.

Ultrasound Photo

Sorry it took me so long. Here is the strip of photos we were given after our Ultrasound.

So we're having a girl! They didn't give us any digital pictures of the ultrasound so until I can scan them in you'll have to do with the pictures Leo took while we were at the ultrasound.
She was moving all around and wouldn't let us see her face so we are probably going back for another one at some point. We're hoping to have the next one at Meriter because they do 4D pictures.
Her name is Zoie Raquel Morales. We're stealing the spelling from our friend Joie:) Anyways, enjoy these pictures and I'm sure we'll have more to come!

15 Week Photos!

So Leo had some fun with the photos this week because I'm really starting to show. We're taking a class at Meriter Hospital and I'm a little freaked out at the reality that I will be pushing a baby through... there in only 5 months and one week! I feel funny about being so scared, is this normal?
Anyways, I'm looking forward to finding out what the sex is and getting the spare room set up for a baby. We weren't going to have a nursery, but we're changing our minds about that the more we think about it. So, we're going to sell the bed in there and make room for the baby.
Anyone want a bed?

12 Week Photo

So this is my belly at twelve weeks. I am now 13 weeks and it is pretty much the same if not smaller. The belly size changes when I eat or have to go to the bathroom. It at times looks large and at other times it barely looks like I'm pregnant.
At our last appointment we heard the heartbeat. It was a strong 160 beats per minute. I'm still feeling sick but hoping it will dissipate soon with the end of the first trimester.

1st Doc Appointment!

So I have my What to Expect When You're Expecting book compliments of our Doctor's office. They drew some blood and stuff and asked a billion questions. She said I'm doing well and everything looks good. Pretty boring, which is good because I would prefer there not be drama at these appointments :) They talked to us about the hospital we will be delivering at, it will be Meriter which is the same hospital I had my appendectomy. It has an impressive birthing center from what I can see with private suites containing a whirlpool bath and soothing shower massage to name a few. It looks like it will be a great place to have a baby. Anyways, that's all I have for now. My next appointment is Thursday, July 2 when we will get to hear the heart beat! Yay!

Baby Bump? What do you think?

So I hope I look pregnant instead of just fat :) I don't think this officially counts as showing, but you can definitely tell something is growing in there and I hope it is just my uterus!

Telling the Fam in Michigan

So, we went to Michigan to tell our family we are pregnant and there were some great reactions! We took pictures of each reaction...

Now you need to know that we were at a Pink Dress Run where we wear crazy pink dresses and raise money to aide in finding a Cure for Cancer. So basically we dressed up crazy for a good cause.
