I realize my child looks like a penquin in this picture... but little baby had his/her legs curled up very tightly! :)
I have been waiting to write this post for quite a long time. Many people are starting to find out and questioning why my tummy seems to be growing, so here it is.. the official announcement! We were waiting until we found out the gender before we announced, but we went to the doctor's today and our sweet little baby was being VERY modest. :) Baby Olsen had their little legs crossed and pushed completely to their little bum, not to mention the ambilical cord was laying right in between it's legs. There was no possible way Dr. Spencer could even guess! Rats!
I am now just over 16 weeks pregnant with Baby Olsen, and I can honestly say it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life so far. The way this baby came to be, may have not been in our plan, but we know with out a doubt that this little spirit was sent to our family for a reason and we can't wait to be it's parents. When we first found out we both cried we were so excited.. then the shock set in. I started freaking out and stressing, thinking that there was no way I could really do this, but our little baby has already pushed Matt and I to grow even more spiritually and it has been the sweetest adventure ever.
Although I REALLY wanted to find out today if baby was a boy or a girl, I can't help but laugh at the whole situation. I was so frustrated watching the ultrasound screen, knowing we would not be finding out today, then I would see a little foot pop up, or it would wiggle it's little belly, and all I could do was smile! I already love our baby so much and even though I am so nervous to become a mother, I honestly have never looked forward to something so much!
We will be returning to the doctor's office on March 22nd for our big 20 week appointment, and they promised me we would find out the gender that day! Apparently the specialist has some tricks she can do to make the baby cooperate! :)
August 6, 2012 can't come soon enough!
Matt and I cannot wait to start this next chapter of our life! I know life can only get better from hear!
Baby Olsen's Foot! It is in the top left hand corner... pretty cute! :)
