Its a G-I-R-L


Today we went to Lubbock for the Texas Tech (vs. Kansas) football game. Texas Tech won 42-21. It was a great game!
After we got back into town, we went over to my parents (Nana & Pop) house. My sister, Rebecca, and all of her family meet us over there as well. (Since my other sister, Christi, lives so far away and not able to join us .... I filled her in on the news the day that we received the sonogram. Wish she could be here but since she can't, I give her as many perks as I can!!)
We gave everyone a sack with some goodies, ie: "It's a girl" note card, pink mints, pink baby bracelet, and pink baby pins. Everyone opened them at the same time ... we were all excited and thrilled and that we are having a little baby girl. :) Great day!

Unexpected Sono #4




This morning I called the dr's office because I have been cramping and hurting for 3 days.....they said to go home from work - put my feet up, drink lots of water, and to come in for a sono in the afternoon; just to make sure everything is ok.
Of course I came home, rested, and when it was time- me & Scot went to go get the sono performed.
The sono tech said that everything looks GREAT and normal! YEAH! What a relief. Once she saw that everything was looking good, she asked if we wanted to find out what gender we were having. And with NO hesitation, we of course said- YES!
She preformed my first external sonogram. As we were looking at Baby C moving around, the technician said, you are having a .......... GIRL! Wow, we are so excited and thrilled. This was such an exciting moment. The exam turned out to be a wonderful visit: everything is normal and we are having a baby girl. :) The first picture is showing us that it is a g-i-r-l! The second picture is a 4D pic of her face with her sweet little arm and hand in front of her face....
We decided not to tell the family until both me and Scot could be there at the same time. So, we have set up a family meeting for Saturday, 10-31-09 to tell everyone. Can't wait!!

Bouncing Around

video
Well today (Sat. Oct 10, 2009) was the day that we got to do another sonogram by my cousin, Randy. This was so much FUN and AMAZING! Some of my family got to be there to see and watch Baby C. (Scot, my mom, dad, sister - Rebecca, cousins - Laura, Emily, and Randy)
At first, Baby C just wanted to sleep, sleep, and sleep. But of course, we did not let her/him. :) And every time we nudged Baby C, she/he would move and stretch a lot. So VERY cute. Baby C would keep moving and throwing her/his arms and hands around her/his face. Loved how Baby C was jumping around. We have a few videos to share from today. We will keep posting and hope you enjoy.
Everyone had really good time and enjoyed watching Baby C. This was my dad's (aka: Pop) first time to see a sonogram; so that was so much fun to watch him and his excitement.
Thank you SO VERY much to Randy and the Kotara Family. We can not thank you enough for the priceless videos and pictures of our little miracle. We are so lucky to have had this opportunity and look forward to more! Love you all.

15 weeks

Today is Thursday, Oct. 8, 2009. And I am still so happy to be in the 2nd trimester!! I have been feeling so much better. My nausea is few and far between. Now if I could just get rid of these headaches.... but Dr. Carrasco said these headaches are normal right now, due to all the hormones. Cant wait til they are also few and far between. :)

Randy called this evening (my cousin, which is a RN and a Echo/Sono tech) and said that they got a new machine and that he would like to do a sonogram! WOW. How AWESOME is that?!? Therefore, we have scheduled a sonogram on Saturday, Oct. 10, 2009.... CAN NOT WAIT til Saturday. My family is going to get to go and see Baby C also. My mom, dad, sister and her family- my bro in law and kiddos! Woo hoo.

Dr. Visit #2



Today we had our 2nd dr's visit and our 3rd sonogram! We went over pre-natal vitamins, because I stopped taking pre natals due to nausea. But every since I stopped taking them, I have been taking 2 flintstone vitamins with iron and 1 folic acid tablet. Dr. Carrasco said that this was perfectly great! I am so glad because this combination has helped me with my nausea.....
Also, I have gained 3 lbs. Dr. Carrasco said this was good. :)
The sonogram went so good. Baby C was sitting Indian Style (legs were crossed) with his/her hands close to the face. We could see Baby C's fingers wiggling and moving all over. That was our favorite part, seeing all the individual fingers! So cute and sweet. The heart rate was 156/min.

The next visit and sonogram is on November 3, 2009. This will be the visit that we will find out Baby C's gender. Oh My Gosh, we are SO EXCITED. We will get to see our Brooke Nicole or Seth Thomas. As of right now, these are the names that we have chosen for Baby C.

We Made It!

14 weeks! woo hoo. This is the beginning of the 2nd trimester. So excited that we have now passed the 1st trimester. This is a huge relief since the 1st trimester is the scariest and most important...
Looking forward to this wonderful journey.
