Boy or Girl?!?!?!?

Michael and I went to the doctor today and are happy to report that everything looks good! We didn't have an ultrasound done but the Dr. did listen to the heartbeat and it sounded strong. Plus we set the date for when we get to find out whether our baby is a boy or girl!!!! Mark your calendars because on September 16th we will find out what this precious baby is so we won't have to call it an "it" any longer. We are so excited that things seem to be moving a long great right now and will continue to keep you posted as best we can.

Right now I am 14 1/2 weeks (I will be 15 weeks on Friday) and am starting to feel better as the days go on...I still have to eat something every couples hours or I feel sick and if I don't get about 8 1/2 to 9 hours of sleep I wake up sick but I am starting to get the hang of it. As of right now our baby is the size of an apple/orange. It is between 16-20 weeks that you start to feel movement so I am so excited for that to begin. The baby can move all its joints and can sense lights!

Here is a link to what a baby looks like at 15 weeks: It is crazy how they are really this tiny little baby already!!!

Michael is doing great and is such a wonderful partner in all of this. He is super understanding of everything I am going through and helps me every step of the way. I feel like this adventure will only make us stronger.

So let me know what you think this baby is a boy or a girl?? I have attached pictures below of me today! A few other random things to think about most people tell me I am carrying high however I do have a sort torso. Michael has two brothers and one of his brothers has a little boy. I took one of those Chinese calendar quizzes and it said girl (whatever that means). The heart beat the first two times we went was about 170 but the last time was closer to 155 (they didn't tell us the heart rate today). Ok now give me your guesses!!!!

BOY OR GIRL?!?!?!?
