Update

I'm sorry. I've been the worst blogger!

Well, I had my ultrasound on Monday and everything looks good. Based on the u/s my due date is Oct. 16th...I had said Oct. 17th. We decided to find out the sex of the baby and....it's a GIRL!!!!. We are over the moon! I was really hoping for a girl since this is going to be our last baby. I'm so excited1 I can't wait to start shopping ;).

I had my appointment with my midwife last night. I mentioned how ridiculously tired I've been. Way more than even my 1st trimester. It hits me everyday around 3 or 4 like a ton of bricks. I get to where I feel like I'm just going to pass out, dizzy, nauseous it's not fun. Well, she took my blood pressure and thought it was way too low, so she tried the other arm and it was low too. Which is weird because I've never had problems with my BP. So we talked a bit about what might be causing it and it turns out I'm not getting enough fluids. I knew I wasn't getting enough. I have a weak bladder and with being pregnant it's even worse, so I avoid drinking a lot. So this explains the tiredness and all as well as my braxton hicks(which I forgot to mention to her). So I need to up my fluid intake and just deal with the many potty breaks. I'm so you all wanted to know about my weak bladder..haha!

Well, without further ado...pictures of our beautiful girl!!!





Her cute little legs!

I know. I told Josh I mine as well move into the bathroom!

We are thinking Chloe. We like the middle name Morgan, but Josh googled the name and apparently it's some famous adult film star? Juuuuust great lol. So we need to talk that over some.

Josh LOVES the name Zoe, but I always liked Chloe more. Then our good friend named her DD Zoe, so...it's off the list. It is a cute name!

Yes, Move in to the bathroom, just convert the shower to a sleeping area... It could work? maybe??

So glad all is well... Won't be like and you'll be awake all night for another reason...

A much more huggable reason. :-)
