15 Weeks {Surprise Ultrasound & It's A...}


To be honest, there's not much change since last week...still tired, a bit of nausea still hanging on, and still getting tired and sore more quickly than usual. My favorite jeans ARE fitting tighter, so I think this photo might be the last that I'm able to wear them for a long while! Though I've bought some maternity jeans, they're still a bit big at the moment for the most part so it's getting fun getting dressed in the morning! I'll admit there are some days where I just end up staying in my pjs for the day...but I feel MUCH more productive when I get dressed for the day so I'm trying to work with what I have!!

Baby Finley

I talked about our ultrasound briefly in a previous post, so some of you already know our sorta, kinda, maybe news, but I wanted to be sure to share that here as well. I had my doctor's appointment last Wednesday, no ultrasound scheduled. But baby Finley was being stubborn and we could not find the heartbeat using the doppler. After repositioning a few times and still not finding anything, we headed off to check things out on the ultrasound instead.
As I have mentioned before, from day one Shaun has been absolutely convinced that baby Finley is a girl. Anytime anyone would suggest that it could be a boy too, he was quick to correct them. So, at our ultrasound, we were given a slight hint. We do not know 100% for sure yet of course, BUT our ultrasound tech said that at this point (14 weeks, 4 days at the time), she saw nothing to indicate boy and there is a very good chance that Shaun might just be right! (But again warned us not to go out and buy pink just yet!) We go back in a month for another ultrasound and should find out for sure then! We are just hoping now that nothing shows up between now and then or our poor Shaun will be devastated!! But between mine, my husband's & Shaun's intuition saying girl, the ultrasound, etc...we're hoping it's all a good sign! Time will tell, and ultimately, we'll be thrilled with either!!

Big Brother Shaun

Of course big brother is still very anxious to meet his new baby! I don't believe that will change!
He's also gotten super excited about the new Wizard of Oz movie previews...have you seen the (good) flying monkey from this new movie? Guess what his name is? FINLEY! Shaun thinks this is the coolest thing in the world, and loves seeing Finley the Flying Monkey on the TV!! Oh boy! I assure you all that this was NOT where we discovered the name, and just a coincidence...a pretty great one, according to Shaun!
Speaking of names, Shaun has made the decision on Finley's middle name!!! After showing him my short list (Finley Kae, Finley Elizabeth or Finley Grace), he decided it was Finley Grace and there was no more room for discussion! So Finley Grace it is!! I think he made a wonderful choice!!
