Week 15

Here we are.. week 15.. man does time fly! It feels like just yesterday I was holding a positive Home Pregnancy Test in my hands... We've come a long way and I got the idea from a coworker to start blogging about this wonderful journey and maybe one day, Baby Hearn, you will be able to read this and smile. :-D

Daddy has been working vigorously on our basement, trying to make it ready for his man cave/ kids hang out area/ work out space so we can move the kid's playroom and start making that extra bedroom yours. :-) Let me tell ya, this home-owners business is NO JOKE. we've got our work cut out for us. The basement and your room is just the start of it. Hopefully we will be able to finish the bathroom, work on the deck, yard, shed, and fence. 6 months does not seem like enough time! Daddy's superman when it comes to working with his hands though, so I wouldn't underestimate him. :-)

As far as you and your growth in mommy's belly goes.. We've been to the doctors 3 times and had 2 ultrasounds. :-) you are already adorable and incredibly active!! The doctor says you and mommy are growing perfectly! :-) Everything is going great and I cannot wait until I see you again in the ultrasound where we find out your sex!! will you be Harper/Rian Elizabeth Hearn or Logan/Chase Riley/Ryan Hearn?  Inquiring minds want to know!! Aubri, Mom-mom Hymer, Uncle Jeffery, and Grandmom Krumm want you to be a girl.. Zachary is hoping for another little brother.. i dont think he can take another Aubri. hahah.. as for the rest of us, we just want you to be happy and healthy. :-D But know that we will love you NO MATTER WHAT. And dont worry, your name should be decided soon..its harder than i thought it would be! ha. and rumor has it that you can hear noises by now so enojoy the music and mommys crazy babbling.. i want to try to start reading to you soon too.  P.S. the 4rth doctors visit is this Thursday..yay! :-D

My first trimester was pretty challenging with the back pains, nausea, and exhaustion. I was elated to finally enter into my second trimester to get past all that. Now the morning sickness is pretty much gone (sometimes the mornings are still not the best..) and I def have my appetite back and am trying to eat more well balanced meals for ya, baby. :-) The energy is coming back slowly as well so i am starting to feel a little bit more like myself again. Although it hasn't really been completely smooth sailing lately.. the second trimester seems to come with some challenges as well... Sleep has not been very easy, i wake up at every little thing.. my emotions have not been very easy to control lately too.. and your growth is definitely causing some cramping in mommy's belly.. no bueno.

Regardless of all the not so fun things about being pregnant, daddy, brother, sister, and I are all SOOOO much in love with you already and we CANNOT wait til you are born!! go ahead and get your growth on so you are healthy when it comes time, but dont get too comfy.. its only been 15 weeks and i am already getting impatient :-P
