Sugar and Spice!

Looks like our instincts from the beginning were right!
Baby Harris is a GIRL!!

We couldn't be more thrilled! We found out last Monday and the lady doing the ultrasound was pretty sure she was a little girl! We got some great pictures of her! We loved seeing her move around, kicking her legs and moving her arms. She even had a little head bob going on. Maybe she will run after her daddy and love music! She is just too cute already!

I still haven't felt her move, that I know of anyway. Hopefully soon though. I am already feeling big and only put on jeans if I absolutely have to ;) I am feeling better each day with only a bad day here and there. My nights are starting to consist of achy hips and heartburn, but nothing too unbearable.

We found a new apartment and will be moving next month. Now my brain is going crazy with ideas for the nursery. I just have to keep telling myself we still have FOREVER and I have plenty of time to plan and do projects! It's just too fun though, right?!

We have another ultrasound at 20 weeks so we will see if our little one really is a girl. Either way, we can't wait! We are happy we have a healthy little one :) 

Waiting to find out!

Finally An Update! Baby Harris: 8 - 15 Weeks

I don't exactly know where to begin for this post. Let's just say the experience of pre-pregnancy and pregnancy itself has been a roller coaster. I guess I should start by saying how blessed Bo and I have been in our experience and we couldn't be more happy that we are getting closer to welcoming a new little member into our family.
After a long road of trying to get pregnant, Bo and I found on on June 21st that our prayers were answered! I took a pregnancy test and we both couldn't believe it so I had to take a couple more just to be safe ;)
As for the pregnancy part, I have been putting off this post because I know how blessed we've been but, to be honest, if you've seen the movie "What to Expect When You're Expecting" I am like the lady that Elizabeth Banks plays. I know I shouldn't complain but it's been an adventure from quitting my job, an ER visit (hence the 10 & 11 week pic), right down to a dermatologist visit that I had today in fact! Oh the joys, right?!
Well enough of that part! We really are so excited! We have had amazing support from our friends and family. I am starting to feel tons better! Hopefully within the next week or two I'll feel like a million bucks! Food is starting to sound more appealing (no cravings yet!)  and I even got myself to the gym the other day! And of course we all can. not. wait! to find out if we are having a boy or girl! Bo and I were both set on a girl when I first got pregnant, but now we have no clue! I love little girl bows and frilly dresses but I also can't resist the little tiny baseball hats and high top shoes for a little boy. I guess we'll know soon enough!
Now,  just wish us luck on picking out a name ;)
