Cathy, Taylor, Me, and Mom
I called Dr. Bailey's office that morning when I got to work and let them know what went on. Dr. Bailey said that she was pretty sure everything was fine but I could come in that afternoon and they would use the doppler to check the heartbeat just to make sure. I feel like I'm becoming a regular at the Dr.'s office, but that's exactly what I did. At 3:45pm, that Monday, I headed to her office to make sure everything was okay.
This was Preston's first day of school so he was unable to go with me. I think I was fine until I was sitting in the waiting room. My stomach felt like it was going to come out of my throat and I was SO nervous. They took me back to the room and there I waited some more for Dr. Bailey to come in. She finally came in and grabbed the doppler. The minute she found the heartbeat, I burst into tears. I think I had been trying to hold back my emotion all day long and finally released it when I knew everything was okay. Dr. Bailey said that sometimes your body just does that for no reason at all. I'm hoping this is the last "scare." Please no more of these!!
I called mom on the way home and told her "this thing must be a girl if it's already causing me this much trouble, ha!" I guess we will soon find out for sure! Stay tuned.....

Friday morning, me, Ady, and Eli loaded up and headed to the Plano Center to meet Ady's mom, Debbie. We jumped in line, which wasn't too bad, and waited patiently for the doors to open. There was SO much stuff.....pack n' plays, high chairs, exersaucers, bouncy seats, toilets, car seats, strollers, bath tubs, toys, books, bottles, bags, carriers, the list could go on and on and on, but most of all...there were CLOTHES!!! So many clothes!! The great part was that Adrianne had already been the night before (her friend gave her a guest pass), and she had already got what she wanted for Eli. So, Ady and I headed straight for the girl clothes (this doctor better be right), while GiGi (Debbie) tooked Eli to shop around. You should have seen Eli's stroller. I wish I would have taken a picture of it. We had clothes EVERYWHERE and stacked taller than the stroller, don't worry Eli wasn't in it :-). I just kept thinking and saying, "What if this is a boy?" Adrianne kept reassuring me that it wasn't and if it was then we'll just re-consign all this stuff.....sounded good to me! So once we had just about overloaded the stroller, we headed to the tables to sort through all the stuff and decide which ones were "keepers." I thought I did pretty good. I narrowed it down a LOT, but still came home with a LOT! Below are some pictures of the "goodies" from that morning.
After we left the consignment sale, Adrianne and I decided it was time for some lunch and that maybe we weren't finished shopping. We headed to one of our favorites, Taco Bueno!! We ate some lunch and decided to go to Grapevine Mills (note: this was tax free weekend as well). To Grapevine we went! We found a few more things while there and she even talked me into trying on some maternity clothes. I was a little reluctant at first, but I finally gave in. I'm glad I did because I ended up buying a pair of jeans, 3 shirts, and some lounge pants with a zip up jacket. Granted, I wasn't big enough to wear any of this yet, but I knew that I would be soon.
Here are some of the cute finds I bought at Grapevine Mills.

The heartbeat was 158bpm this time, so it's definitely slowing down a little. She said that was normal and it will eventually even out once I get a little further along. Such a neat neat sound everytime I hear it. Who would have thought that I would live for the next time I got to hear the heartbeat? Such a little miracle! Thank you God!!

This is one of my favorite pictures that we have so far. Up close and personal side profile and it's sucking its thumb. So sweet! We love you Baby Gill and we can't wait to meet you!!
Everything looked great at the sono. The measurements were right where they needed to be and there were no concerns. Praise the Lord!!! Now onto the fun part....Dr. Albert said, "Okay, so you know it's still too early to tell, but do you want to know what I think it is?" Of course we said, "YES!!!" He told us that he thinks it's a GIRL!!! So I guess we will find out for sure when I'm 20 weeks and we'll get to confirm just how good this Dr. Albert is. ;-) I'm very anxious to find out.
Ady's precious parents - Debbie and Alan
Ady's sister, Kelly (right) and her roommate, Susan.

After lunch, we did a little shopping and then off to the CIRCUS we went!!!! I LOVE the circus and I haven't been in a very long time. I was SO excited to go.
My how the circus has changed over the years. It was fun to see and I'm so glad we went. I think Eli enjoyed his first circus. He did great!!! Here's me, E, and Kelly.

He really enjoyed his cake this year....more than last year!
The beautiful table that Trish worked so hard on along with all the food from Jac and Kim.
The "book" table along with some of the gifts. We were asked to bring a book for baby Brady (such a great idea).
