I don't think I have ever felt so blessed in my entire life.

I know my post earlier didn't really express it, but I was so scared walking into that appointment today.

This baby and I have come so far together. And I am in love.

In love with someone I have never even met.

How strange is it to think that there is someone living inside of you, but yet you've never met them?

Anyway, the baby is perfect and growing big and strong.

The blood was from a polyp on my cervix that has been bleeding.

And the best part was that the ultrasound tech was able to tell that Baby Root is a GIRL!

It was such a wonderful moment, I will never forget it. And I am so thankful that I was able to experience it.

I am truly blessed.

Change in Plans

So.....due to a recent turn of events, I will be heading off to the Dr. JustRelax in about an hour to check on Baby Root.

We had a little bleeding scare last night.

Thankfully, we have a doppler at home, courtesy of my good friend "Bubs." And I was able to hear my sweet baby's heartbeat loud and clear, which did a lot to ease my fears.

So keep us in your thoughts this morning.

With all the comotion, Mr. Rootbeer and I have decided to cancel the 3D ultrasound we had scheduled for tonight.

So I guess we will just have to wait and see who's in my belly :)

Last week Mr. Rootbeer and I went to an appointment. It was an ultrasound we paid out of pocket for to find out if Baby Root is made of sugar, spice and everything nice or frogs, snails, and puppy dog tails.

And it was a huge disappointment.

The tech said something to the degree of, "well it looks like maybe a girl"

To which I responded, "well that doesn't sound too positive"

Ya know, I wish he just said, "I can't tell, the baby is scrunched up and you need to come back next week."

I have waited to hear those three words "IT'S A ____!" for so long.

And now it's pretty anti-climactic.

So folks, we will go back tomorrow to confirm.

What do you think?

Boy or Girl?

Beach Time and Belly Pic

I am so excited! Mr. Rootbeer and I are heading out today to enjoy some quality time with my parents and my brother at the beach. My parents were cool enough to rent a kick ass beach house for the next 8 days. Family vacation time!!!!

I cannot even remember when the last time we went on a family vacation.

But man, I am ready.

I am looking forward to taking some pics, hanging on the beach, sleeping, eating, and just relaxing. What I am not looking forward to is sitting in a car with my husband, brother, mom, and dad for 8 hours and having to stop and pee probably once an hour :)
And when we get back, we have some serious work to do on the future nursery. Right now, the nursery is an office, which is jam packed with files, and a desk, and a computer and a whole bunch of other stuff I have no idea what to do with. And the closet is full of ummmm errrrrr my clothes.
Which I guess is no big deal, since I can barely squeeze into 92% of my wardrobe anyway.

So, I am signing off for a little break, but I will leave you with a belly pic, compliments of one of my favorite people

PS. We find out if Baby Rootbeer is a boy or a girl on September 30th...27 days!!!!!
