Happy 9 Weeks Baby Snowflake

We made it to another milestone!  We are officially 9 weeks which means 6 fewer pills per day and no more suppositories!  Baby snowflake is really starting to take shape. You can see a head, body and little arm and leg buds. Baby is about the size of a grape and has a strong heartbeat!

Brennan is already in love. She says that baby snowflake is a sister and that her name is Molly. My 5 year old sister-in-law calls her sparkle princess unicorn or something along those lines. In this 9 week ultrasound you can see how much the baby has changed in such a short amount of time. Watch closely at the end and you can see baby move!



Before Adam and I even started trying I remember telling him that I had to have a daughter. I am one of six girls and I absolutely adore my mother. I couldn't imagine never getting to experience that mother-daughter relationship. I told him that if God only gave use boys then we would adopt a girl. Well God decided we would adopt our girl first.

Adam is IN LOVE with Brennan. He is wrapped around her littler finger. She turns into the sweetest little snuggle bug when daddy is around.  They are best buds and he wouldn't change her for the world. They golf, they fish, they play with the doggies, they wrestle, they gang up on mommy. But he would love a little boy. I imagine because he wants to experience the relationship that he shares with his father but from the other side.

We go back and forth on whether or not we should find out the gender. I have my little girl and would love for my husband to get his little boy. I would also love for Brennan to have a little sister.

So now you get to weigh in.  Comment on this blog post with whether or not you think we should find out the gender and why!!



Prayer requests: Help us make it out of the first trimester!

Please help me pray for a new friend who is waiting to find out if her IVF cycle will be giving her a little blessing of her own

  3. I vote find out & do a fun gender reveal! Gender reveals are soooo much fun! I didn't find out with my first, but I was young & not as much of a planner back then. Now, I can't imagine not finding out! I have to know so I can get everything ready! Haha!

  6. My vote is to wait until the birth...that is just the coolest moment ever as mom and dad examine their baby and discover the gender. Either way I'm sure you'll be wonderfully surprised. I'm sort of hoping you have a boy too because oh man, these boys love their mama.

  8. I did it both ways and I'll tell you what it's nice to be surprised but at the same time it's really nice to be prepared and not have a bunch of gender neutral items such as clothes,strollers, crib bedding,etc...I remember walking through the stores saying to myself "Ooo I really like that, if I would have known she was a girl I would have picked that instead of the one I have"...hope my answer helps in your decision...lots of luck whatever you decide!

  10. process of planning for a babyis so easy now a days. Though there are thousands of process for planning baby but people should always take it very seriously since it does matter in the long run. I have also maintained this process for my baby too and it was really effective.
