15 Weeks...

Today I had a doctor's appointment and baby Rives is doing great! We got to hear it's little heart beat (160 BPM)....which was so amazing! And no more placenta previa...praise the Lord for that! My doctor is pretty certain that he knows what we are having... but the rest of us will have to wait to find out until baby makes his or her arrival in October!

Week 15 sonogram...
Josh took my weekly belly pic last night. During our "photo sessions" we tend to laugh a lot....mainly because Josh thinks I look silly trying to strike just the right pose. Half of the pictures turn out looking like this....me laughing because Josh is laughing {at me}...

OK, here is the serious one...
Vulnerability is the name of the game when it comes to posting weekly belly pictures of myself! I know my face and arms will start to get plumper as the weeks pass by, but I've decided that I'm not going to let it bother me. I'm pregnant and that's what happens when you're pregnant (as Josh likes to remind me)! I'm going to enjoy the journey...even when other parts of my body are expanding in addition to my belly! Friends, please don't judge me.... :)

Hey!! I stumbled upon your blog last week and have been following since but i had to comment to tell you the memories you have been brining up for me. My son was born October 22 last year so needless to say i have been reliving my pregnancy through your updates. October is a wonderful month to have a little one!!

I follow another blog whose son was born October 08 and it is awesome to see what i have to look forward to. If you'd like to follow me to see what your little one will be up to next year at this time my blog is

Mindy you look beautiful and will continue to glow thru the entire pregnancy! I wouldn't let Nate take any pics of me the last 2 weeks, I felt as big as a house. Now I wish I had them to look back on.

You are just a glowin' Mindy!! May the laughter continue through you and Josh's journey on becoming parents!! :) I did want to guess on the sex of your baby...I think you are going to have a girl!!

Maybe you should do a survey on your blog and have your friends and family guess the sex, weight, height, etc. It's a fun game and it gets everyone involved. Don't feel like you have to do it, just a thought really.

Happy 15 weeks!
