20 Weeks

Today Ryan and I got to see our little baby today at our 20 week appointment and it was confirmed--we are having a precious baby BOY! This past week I also found out my best friend, who is due 2 weeks before me, is also having a boy! I'm so excited to go through this journey with her raising our baby boys. I can't believe I am halfway through my pregnancy already!

Earlier this week I called my doctor because of some concerns I had and they told me to come over to checked out. Luckily, they said with modified bed rest for a week I should start doing better. They think I have an infection and that I was just overdoing myself with work and volleyball on top of having a nasty cold the past month. I stayed home from volleyball 2 days and I went ahead and took off work today. It's crazy how much a little rest has helped. So thankful it was nothing more.

Today has been wonderful. It has been perfect fall weather, I got to see our precious Baby Stu, spend the morning with Ryan and have a lunch date, and also get a yummy decaf Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks on this National Coffee Day.

Also, I was recently contacted by a website that wanted to post our gender reveal video and possibly do an article about it. I thought that was pretty neat! 

It is football season, so of course this football fan had to make a football themed chalkboard!
