03-23-2016

Oh my gosh! I am beyond ecstatic about having a baby boy. We are naming him Luke Ryan Lawson. We wanted something simple and nothing to be confused with whether or not it’s a boy or girl. I am so ready to be a mom to Luke! It’s crazy how much love is there in my heart for a child that hasn’t even been born. I know it’s a little cliché, but my heart is so full today for this little man. The gender reveal was something Matt and I weren’t going to do because we didn’t have any ideas, but Brooke Wells sent me a video a couple of weeks ago with this idea and Matt and I both loved it. Thank you Brooke for the idea. I am thrilled it worked with how windy it was today.

I am going to go through my thoughts from this morning before my ultra sound to now. This morning Matt and I woke up around 8:00am and I was so ready to go. I was thinking about whether or not it was a boy or girl and how I would react when the Doctor told us the news. I then began praying about the health of our baby boy or girl because this ultra sound was the check-up of all the organs, heart, arms, legs, fingers, and toes. Things could go terribly wrong and was I prepared for bad news. I prayed with Matt this morning before we went in to the doctors that God would protect us and the baby with whatever news we were to receive. We went in with a sense of peace that no matter the circumstances we would trust that God’s plan is better than ours. The news was great and the baby weighs 14.0 ounces, Heart Rate 142 bpm, and 11 inches long from top of the head to the feet. The doctor was pleased with everything with the baby and with my weight gain, which is 12 pounds. My goal is to not gain more than 25 pounds throughout this pregnancy. The doctor reiterated that I need to keep my heart rate under 160 no matter what. It’s too dangerous for the baby above that number. I am going to have to do a much better job monitoring my heart rate throughout my workouts. During the Ultra sound, which took 35 minutes she showed us everything we wanted to see and more. Matt knew it was a boy before the doctor even told us. The doctor said if you have a girl you are going to have problems. It made us both laugh a little. I have been on cloud 9 since we were told I am having a boy. I feel so much love for Matt and this little boy.

Oh I also have a confession to tell you from yesterday. I went home from work around 3:30pm and I had eaten well all day. I had my oatmeal with 1 scoop of Driven Cinnamon Roll protein with 2 eggs for breakfast, 2 Grilled Chicken Breasts for lunch and when I went home I ate an entire blueberry streusel cake by myself. I usually take Tuesday’s off from working out and after I ate the entire cake I decided I should probably go and workout. I couldn’t believe it. I called Matt and confessed and he actually congratulated me! I haven’t craved sweets thus far and I guess I am beginning to so I am going to have to control my sweet tooth. However, some good news that came from eating the entire cake is I had a 2 bowel movements. I haven’t been able to go to the bathroom for 2 days so I was pleased with this passing. I hate taking medicine for constipation so I am glad it finally past. Anyways, that was the pregnancy truth from early evening to last night.
