I have been progressing well with the pregnancy. I am beginning to enjoy it (some days more than others). I am now at 22 weeks. I am finally at the point that others can tell for sure that I am pregnant rather than questioning if it is just a fat gut. I wanted to wait for this point until I posted belly pics. We went to the 20 week ultrasound and doctor's appointment about two weeks ago. They told us that the baby is doing well. We heard the heartbeat for the first time. It was truly amazing!
During the ultrasound we found out that we are having a girl!!! We are so excited to welcome her into our little family. We decided on the name Josephine Ryne. It has no family significance, we both just really liked the names! We are now just watching as Joey grows and begins to move around. I can feel her most days, but Pete is still not quite sure if he is feeling her or not. We will just have to wait until she gets a bit bigger.
This was about 8 weeks. She was just a speck.
This was at about 16 weeks. She was getting bigger. More baby like. She was small enough that you can see all of her.
This is one of the better pictures we got at 20 weeks.
About 16 weeks.
Today at 22 weeks.

I have been waiting to post this, but I think it is about time. Peter and I are expecting our first child in March. We couldn't be more happy! I am now at 16 weeks which means I am finally feeling good and I am much less tired that I have been in the weeks prior. I am noticing a baby bump beginning to pop out and I am anxiously awaiting getting to feel the baby move. We have our next doctor's appointment on Oct. 7th and we MAY find out the sex on that day. Then again we may have to wait a couple more weeks, but either way we should find out in the next month or so!! Peter is already the best dad! He is more excited than I expected him to be and is playing an extremely active role in preparing for baby's arrival. He has been spending at least 5 hours a day painting a beautiful mural in the baby's room. We decided to go with a Dr. Suess theme in the nursery. He was so excited to paint the room and make it something special for our son or daughter.
This takes up one entire wall and it has taken Peter no less than 48 hours of solid painting. It is truly beautiful!
We are excited to keep everyone updated on the progress of the pregnancy and when baby finally arrives!
