It All Became Worth It...

All the shots. The tears. The medicine. The negative tests and failed cycles. The doctor visits. The pain. The frustrations. The questions. The fear.

I felt Henley kick today. Turns out I have been feeling it for a while, but I just wasn't sure if that is what I was feeling. I had a doctor's appointment today and while he was listening to her heartbeat on the doppler, she kicked him. The doctor said "Did you feel that? She just kicked!" It was incredible, and made every single step we took to get here worth it.

Baby Girl Has A Name

When Terry and I first met, he was just moving into a new apartment and did not have cable yet. All he had was a live concert DVD for The Eagles, and we watched that DVD over and over. I used to make fun of him for having the DVD (I mean, who watches live concerts?!!), but The Eagles quickly became one of our favorite bands together, and that DVD truly helped build the foundation of our relationship. In fact, we are going to The Eagles concert in October when they are in Dallas!! When we started thinking of names for Baby Girl, we were all over the place, but there were 3 names that just stuck with us the whole time. One of those names became a front runner in San Diego a few weeks ago, but neither of us were ready to commit. Over the last week or so, my mind was made up, but Terry still wasn't quite sure. Today, I went to lunch with a friend, and came back to Tiff's Treats & ice cream on my desk, along with this note:

HENLEY, we cannot wait to meet you.

(For those that don't know, Don Henley is one of the lead singers of the Eagles and also where we came up with the name.)

Baby Girl's Nursery Mood Board

Here is my mood board for Baby Girl's room! I've ordered all the fabric, ordered the crib and dresser, and we are going this weekend to look at chairs. I just really hope it all comes together how I want it to!!

It's A...


GIRL!!! Her anatomy scan went wonderfully. She was very active today. They did some 3D shots which were SO COOL! She kind of looks like a frog since she is still so little and developing, but I love frogs and think she is just perfect! I cannot believe the amount of love I have for this little girl and she's only 8 ounces!!

Gender and Anatomy Scan TODAY!!

I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!! I cannot wait to see Baby again, confirm gender, and see every little part of him/her!!! Please say a prayer that Baby is looking healthy and happy! I'll post details as soon as I know them!
