The Cutest Peanut

Today was another appointment!

It was a big appointment in the sense that Daniel (and his mom DiAnna) finally got to see the baby on the screen instead of just on a picture. 

AND we got to hear the heartbeat today! Oh man...tears. I got teary the moment it came on the screen. I was glad to hear later that Daniel got teary too.

The baby now looks like a peanut. Literally. I can see why people call them that now.

ultrasound, pregnancy, baby,

The baby is measuring at 8 weeks four days (5 as I type this) which is right on schedule and everything looks good.

The heart beat is so strong (It's on the bottom of the picture) and fast! It was around 180.

You know, they say that higher heart rates are attributed to girls, and the 140 area is attributed to boys. So the "evidence" that it's a girl just keeps piling on up. 

Grandma-to-be DiAnna has already started buying the baby things! How cute is that?
pregnancy, ultrasounds, babies, motherhood,
Look at these little stuffies! So snuggly!

It makes me so happy to know she's excited like we are. The baby was unplanned and a total shock but little sea monkey is growing fast and is gonna be here before we know it. I am glad that people are starting to come around and be excited with me. 

P.S. To everyone who told me that they'd be taking half of my blood--LIES!! Untruth's!!! It was like 5 viles. That's it. It was nothing! QUIT trying to scare me people! I do enough of that on my own.


  1. Tanika, Tanika. :) Congratulations! I'm happy that you're so excited. It sounds like you have a fantastic support system, which makes me so glad. If you ever need anything, please don't hesitate to let me know! :)

  2. Glad you're feeling better! I actually hope you'll have a girl....only because every single person I know that has had a baby in this past year has had a boy and I think it's slimming my chances of having boys. Ahaha :)

  3. Jana--how about the cupcakes for the baby shower? ;) want boys? or you want girls?

  4. Sounds like you're having a girl to me, just because the heart rate is so high. Matheson's never EVER got that high, but both of his girl cousins did. :]

  5. Darling, I'm so excited for you! I love reading about these ups and downs... I'm coming to visit in a couple of weeks and we should get together for lunch or something so you can tell me about it in person. :)


Thanks for taking the time to say something back! :) One sided conversations are never any fun! :) Thanks for reading!
