15 weeks 4 days

Chris and I had an appointment with the baby doctor yesterday. We are 15 weeks 4 days along in this pregnancy and the baby had a heart rate of 145. The last time we were told the heart rate it was 154 but that was at 7 weeks, and I understand that they gradually go down over time. The doctor told us that he wants to schedule another ultrasound at around 18 weeks. I was pleasantly surprised! With Cadence and Gabriel, I didn't have that ultrasound until almost 21 weeks. This would be the ultrasound where we find out if it is a boy or a girl, but we aren't planning on doing that this time. It will definitely be a true test of my will power to not scream "Yes!" when the ultrasound tech says, "Do you want to know the sex of the baby?"

After the doctor we made a quick trip to Home Depot to pick up some paint samples for the nursery. Originally we had planned on doing a brown, yellow & green theme, but I think now we are going to go with tan/beige, chocolate and pink or blue. Since we are not finding out the gender of this baby ahead of time, we will have to wait until November to buy blue or pink stuff, like this:

In the meantime, we'll load up on beige sheets and use Gabe's old lamp shade. I don't think that the baby will mind. :)

Me too! I told Chris that he might as well get ready for him and Gabe to be outnumbered. :)
