16 week

so, i'm 16 weeks today and apparently baby aj is the size of an avocado! behold, my first belly picture...i apologize, i just woke up from a nap :)


we went to the doctor on friday and got to hear the heartbeat again, and it was wonderful! the first appointment we were able to hear the heartbeat it was 169, which made me think girl, but this time it was 154, which makes me think boy...so at this point i can legitimately stop over-analyzing it and just be surprised. oh, and for those of you who don't know, aaron and i are decided not to find out what we're having! apparently there is no better surprise your whole life, than when the doctor hands you your baby and says, 'congratulations, here is your baby ____!'

So glad you guys decided to wait to find out what you're having. We didn't find out with Jack and are now not finding out with the twins - it IS the best surprise and nothing can match it! Congrats again! This is a great time of life - enjoy every minute of it! ~Angie Armstrong

So I tried that with Jeremy, and he would not go for it, he said possibly the next on we could be surprised, I'm going to go on a limb and say girl, Cooper's heartbeat was always above 160, hers is always in the 150s, but was faster the first appointment. As soon as it dropped to 157 I knew it was going to be a girl!

You're naming it Ryan regardless, right?

no no...whats even better is when your HUSBAND hands you your baby and tells you....its a girl...or its a boy. I would recomend telling your doctor (or midwife) to let your husband tell you...or in our case let your husband even deliver the baby!! (with the doctor or midwife right there of course :)
