Justin and I learned we were pregnant with our 3rd child (we miscarried our 2nd one-and I hate the idea of not acknowledging that pregnancy at all - I also have a hard time calling this baby "number 2" when really it's number 3) in February 2014, just days before I left on a 10 day trip to Israel with our church. Due to our previous miscarriage, we decided not to tell anyone about this pregnancy for a while. We didn't even tell Justin's parents (who were in Israel with me) until the day before the 8 week ultrasound.
We had our 8 week ultrasound on March 21, 2014 and saw our sweet baby and heard it's heartbeat of 155bpm. We were thrilled! But we still didn't post anything on any social media outlet. We wanted to wait to have one more appointment, our 12 week appointment, which was on April 18th, 2014. At that appointment, we didn't have an ultrasound but we heard the heart beat on the Doppler and it was in the 160's. Everything looked completely normal, so we decided to tell the world about it then.

Sweet Carter was loving the balloons idea! He had so much fun with that box for a solid week and a half after the gender reveal party too! You can see the post on the gender reveal party here.
