It's a...........

Pink or blue? Girl or boy? 

Yesterday at 4:00, Colby and I got to go see our baby in an ultrasound for the first time! And it was amazing—I am obsessed! Seeing proof that your baby is growing inside you is the most incredible thing in the world! 

Turns out Baby Zimmerman is a GIRL! And goodness, she is ADORABLE!

I am so happy we finally know the gender so I can stop calling our baby “it” and say “her!” I love her so much already. I haven’t been able to stop smiling since we first saw her up on the screen…and I can’t help but look at our ultrasound pictures about every 10 minutes J

This is a picture of my belly exactly one week ago yesterday (at 14 weeks and 4 days) doesn't look much different now so I figured I'd just post this one.

After the ultrasound appointment we ventured off to buy some pink balloons and other props for our little “gender announcement photo shoot.” Buying these cute little booties was by far my favorite part! Especially considering the fact that we could see her cute little feet so vividly during the ultrasound. The picture with her foot in the air is definitely my favorite picture next to her sweet profile. I hope she has enough room in there! Haha. Can’t wait to put these little booties to use!

 Anyway, here are some close-up shots from our photo shoot. Enjoy! We are extremely excited, as you can tell.

It's a GIRL!!!

Farewell, First Trimester

Today marks the start of week 14...which means I am officially in the second trimester. At last! Baby is the size of a lemon this week—about 3 1/2 inches long. 

This means that Baby Zimmerman can now squint, frown, grimace, wiggle toes, pee, and maybe even suck his/her thumb! So adorable. I can't wait to see this little cutie in an ultrasound. I am still feeling about the same as I have felt the past few weeks...though lately I am twice as hungry and I have noticed that the movements of bending forward and slouching do not feel pleasant. When my stomach is squished like that it feels a little achy and breathing is much more difficult. Abnormal? I have no idea. Either way, sitting up straight feels more pleasant so my posture is much improved lately.

I have my next doctor's appointment a week from today, but it will just be to listen to the heartbeat again. However, a week after that I can go in for a free ultrasound to find out the gender! Can't wait to find out if we're having a boy or girl :)

I'm still hardly showing, but if I wear a maxi dress or something tight fitting you can definitely see evidence that there's a baby in there! Here is a picture of me last Thursday at 13 weeks and 4 days:

I love this baby so much already and I have only heard its sweet little heartbeat once. What a blessing being pregnant is! Even with all the nasty symptoms that come along with it, I wouldn't give up this opportunity for anything in the world. It's such a miracle to think that a little human is growing inside me and I can't wait to start feeling the baby's kicks and movements! Exciting things to come in trimester 2 :) Hopefully the next time I post we will be announcing the gender!
