16 Week Checkup

Keeping everyone up-to-date...Monday was my 16 week checkup. All is well with me and baby! I gained 3 1/2 pounds and blood pressure looked good too. I opted not to do the AFP test or the Cystic Fibrosis screen either. I know many may not agree...heck hubby wasn't even real fond of my decision at first, but he understands where I'm coming from.

Now, onto the big one, December 5th when we'll find out if we're having a Drake Lee or a Sierra MaeAnn. Yep, I've finally decided on a girl's name.

Anyway, I'll be back next month to let you know how things are going and what things to pick out for the nursery! ;-)

By the way, you've got a little less than a month to get in on the boy or girl betting so leave your pick in the comments section as to which you think it will be...Drake or Sierra. And who knows, I might just have a prize for the first one who guesses correctly!

UPDATE: I've decided to go all out and make an awesome contest out of this, so please stay tuned for the official contest announcement post where you can enter to win some really cool prizes.

If you're interested in donating a prize for the "Guess the Wahmmy's Baby's Gender" please shoot an email to arika3 @ gmail .com (without the spaces) with the subject line "They Call Me Wahmmy Baby Gender Contest." Thanks ahead of time everyone!


Just one more thing before I'm off to work and become the circus ring leader, check out this week's Friday Free for All, as well as the Freebies of the Week over on the right hand side of the blog.

I'm cheering for a Sierra (I love Africa! tee hee!). Girls is all I know and there's something about being a mom and buying pink...

Seriously, boy or girl, babies are a gift from the Lord. Congrats Arika!

Those are both beautiful baby names! :-)

I am rooting for a Sierra so you have someone on your side, but I think it will be Drake and you will have even more pee to clean up from the bathroom floor.

Wow, you're 16 weeks already?! Amazing!

We opted not to get any of the testing, too. They said they'd be able to tell by the ultra sound if things were good.

I figured the results wouldnt change my mind about the baby...so why do it?

I love the names! 3 boys or 2 boys and a girl...either way you're blessed!
