Boy or Girl??

So Since this is our Third & Probably our LAST BABY!! I want to make it fun & exciting {not that having a baby isn't already} but I want to do things outside of the box.. things we haven't done in past pregnancies. So I talked to Stephen & we both thought it would be so fun to have a Gender Reveal Party! I saw on Pinterest these awesome cakes for a Gender Reveal Party & it got me so excited to do this!!
Here is a cake I am just in LOVE with:

I am going to tell my new doctor that when we go in for the ultra sound of the babies gender we don't want to know but to put it on paper & in an envelope & I will go to a cake shop hand them the envelope & have them make the cake. If the inside of the cake is pink then we are having a girl & if it is blue then we are having a boy. Then we will have all our closest friends & family over for a Gender Reveal Party {NOT BABY SHOWER} & we will celebrate the gender together.

I think this will be so fun & awesome! Plus I love the suspense of it all & of course the excitement of not knowing & then finding out with our family & friends.

So in the mean time don't forget to vote for Jelly Bean's Gender in the mean time! I am guessing we should find out in December so you have a bit of time but not too much time.. the clock is ticking :)

Also if you have done this or something like this share your thoughts & ideas.

We Have A Jelly Bean

So yesterday I had my second viable ultra sound & my last doctor's visit with my lovely Doctor M that I have had now since last year. I was so nervous for this appointment because the last appointment we didn't see much so it left me feeling scared there wouldn't be a baby this time either which is any mother's worst nightmare. I just kept telling myself everything is fine.. you have been so so sick, tired & emotional that there was no way that there was not going to be a baby. I knew though that Doctor M was nervous to.. why because she didn't face the monitor towards me at first & she has NEVER done that! I watch her facial expressions & after a few moments she lit up & smiled & said here is you little jelly bean..
I was so happy & relieved. We could see their little itty bitty heart beating away too which is always AWESOME!! She told me I was about 8 weeks & 2 days along. Honestly I was hoping I was further along but that's okay. She gave me a due date of April 23rd 2012 which if we base it off my last two pregnancies & the fact that I delivered both at 38 weeks then I am saying this baby will be here around the 9th of April. Which makes this little Jelly Bean either an Aries or a Taurus. The babies birth stone a DIAMOND which I am sure makes my husband hope for a boy even more LOL & their birth month flower will be a Daisy. I have gone off the Chinese Calendar for all my pregnancies & for others & it has always been right on so this time it says boy! We shall see if it is right or not?

Now that I know my due date & that baby is doing well. Once I arrived home I found a new doctor in Oregon & as much as I fear new doctors the office I called put a lot of my worries at ease. They seem so thorough & friendly. I didn't say weather I prefer a male or female & I guess it doesn't really matter. My doctor with Shiloh was male & he was wonderful so we shall see how this new male doctor will work out. But I have my next appointment with the new doctor on Sept. 28th.

So for now I sit here with morning sickness, stress of moving & completely exhausted LOL just baking this baby away all while raising my two beautiful girls. Life has & will continue to be super crazy busy for the next few weeks as we move & settle but I will update as often as possible.

I am sure I will be posting on Monday because we have a birthday in the house.. my SHILOH ROSE will be turning the BIG 3 & I am sure I will have some photo's to share from her birthday celebration! I still can't believe my first born is going to be 3!!! Where has the time gone???

Where Oh Where Have I been

Well I first want to apologize for my absence from blogging. I haven't been doing much of anything lately aside from taking care of the girls. This pregnancy has really taking a toll on my energy levels & in the past few weeks I have been so nauseous that sitting up at the computer has not been something I have been able to do for a long period.

But aside from this pregnancy kicking my butt we just found out yesterday some more very exciting news... WE ARE MOVING!!! Yep not only am I pregnant with a third baby but we are moving.. & not just down the street. We are moving from our current home in Washington back to Oregon where we started.

You see my husband works for this amazing company Discount Tire Company & he has for the last 15 years. It is the only job he has ever had & probably the only one he ever will have. Anyways he has been a manager for 5 or 6 years now but he has never opened up a brand new store before.. well until now that is. For him this is BIG. I mean its pretty much him getting to start fresh & show the company what he is all about. Not that they don't already know he is a Rockstar but this will really show who he is as a manager & I am so excited for this new adventure. So we are packing up our things & heading back to Oregon on September 24th.

I know crazy right..  that gives me a little over 2 weeks to pack.. so not only do I have to try & get a grip on this morning sickness & lower energy levels. I now have to some how find a way to pack our things, find a way to get it all to Oregon, get all our bills & utilities transferred, new doctors established & this current apartment cleaned. Phew.. I am tired just typing it all. I honestly haven't a clue as to how we are going to do this. I mean this weekend we will be away for Stephen's Big Company Party, then we have next weekend to pack then on Monday the 19th my first born Shiloh Rose turns 3 & then we move.. yikes... I don't know what we got ourselves into but I am determined to accomplish this calmly & as stress free as possible. Ha yeah right! But I know it can be done I will just keep telling myself this on a constant basis to keep me motivated.

So with all that said maybe now you can understand why I have been absent from the  Blogging World & may continue to be for the rest of the month. I hope you can all understand & bare with me.
