My first post and update on pregnancy!

**I have decided to give Blogger a chance at this! I started a website for Garrett back in August when we found out we were having a boy and it only limited us to like 10 pictures and that just doesn't make me happy! So I've decided to try out this Blogger thing and see how it works!!! I am going to go back and post all of the old ones from the other site to keep everyone up to day on here on whats happened so far!**

Hey everyone! We are just getting this website started for our precious baby! I will just do a quick update on everything. Pregnancy has been pretty amazing so far. With the exception that I can't eat a lot of meat and stuff, so I struggled in the beginning and actually lost weight. I've started gaining a few pounds though! As of my last appointment at 16 weeks, I had gained two pounds! With the size my belly is getting, I am SURE I've gained more since then..we will see next week!

We went for a 4D Ultrasound at Sneak Peek down in Lafayette on August 9, 2008 to find out the sex of the baby. Due to our horrible insurance, it only pays for one ultrasound throughout the pregnancy...so we decided we definitely wanted to do the 4D ultrasound to find out the sex of the baby..not to mention the family and friends that were there to share that special moment with us!!! Thank you all for being there! While we were there, we got to clearly see that it is definitely a BOY! We are so excited..words can't even explain. His heartbeat was beating at 145 beats per minute and he was 9 ounces! How precious, right?! The memories from that day will last a lifetime and they will be very clear because we got tons of ultrasound pictures, the whole session on DVD, and not to mention, Billy recorded the whole thing with his camcorder and burnt it to DVD for us! I feel so blessed to have such amazing family and friends! His name will be Garrett Brandon Neal. Garrett after my amazing grandparents and Brandon after Garrett's Daddy!
So when we found out that it was definitely a boy, we all had to go to Babies R Us and all buy him his first little gifts from Momma and Daddy, MeMe, Aunt Tiffy, Aunt Crystal, and Uncle Billy! I will try to upload the pictures to show who all bought what for him.

This is enough for now...it's pretty much my whole pregnancy in a nutshell since I haven't had any complications other than the not being able to eat much! No morning sickness or anything, THANK YOU JESUS! Thank you so much for coming by to visit!
