It's a ......

GIRL!!

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Abigail Morgan Moss! She's waving hello to you!

The day of my sonogram, it was pure torture having to wait all day for my appointment that afternoon! As soon as that bell rang, I raced out of school and headed over to meet Bryan (who had already beat me there..ha!)

Throughout my pregnancy, I had always thought, "I think it's a girl." However, in Bryan's family his sister is the only girl out of tons of boys and the 2 grandchildren are also boys, so I knew the chance of us getting a girl was slim.

I arrived at the sonogram place and we checked in. We were taken back to our room and it was amazing! There were comfy couches and chairs everywhere so you could have had tons of people in there if you wanted to. The best part was that we got to see everything on a 42 in. plasma tv! It was so awesome!

The sonogram began and we tried to figure out what our sweet baby was! Well, I soon began to get very nervous because baby girl had her legs crossed AND had her umbilical cord in between her legs. Poor Katy kept looking and looking and could not get her to uncross her legs. I just KNEW that she was going to send us home and we were going to have to come back and try again.

Katy kept trying to get her to start moving around and was jiggling my belly and shaking her around. It must have worked because Katy then said, "Ok, now I can see! I'm about 98% that it's a GIRL!" Once I heard her say those words, I immediately started bawling! Katy was like, "Is that a good thing?" and we both said yes!

I think that I was just in shock because I never ever thought that I would actually get a girl! I don't think that until I heard her say it was a girl, that I realized how much I had really been wanting one. Katy got the "98%" shot but said she was going back to get her 100% shot! She was able to get one and then said she was 100% sure that it was a girl!

Bryan and I were so excited to find out it was a girl, not only because we had wanted one, but also because we would finally get to use our name! See, we've had our girl name picked out for about 2-3 years, but had no boy names at all that we agreed on! We've always loved the name Abigail, which is Hebrew for "Joy of the Father" and we decided on Morgan as her middle name after our best friend Morgan Smith. Morgan and Bryan have been best friends since 1st grade and Morgan was the one who introduced Bryan and I!

We were both elated and got to take our picture beside the "It's a girl!" wall! :) After we left, we met Jacque, Jason, and Jillian at Texas Roadhouse for our dinner celebration. After dinner, we began making our rounds and calling all of our friends and families to tell them our news! Everyone was ecstatic and so happy for us. It was the best day of our life!

We both went to school the next day wearing our pink shirts and everyone was so excited for us!

I kept telling Bryan that Nov. 16th was a day that I would love to relive over and over again. I will never forget the day my world changed-the day I found out I was going to have a precious baby girl!

Tomorrow's the big day!

Tomorrow we have our appointment to find out if Baby Moss is a BOY or a GIRL! I actually have my appointment with my OBGYN for Dec. 1st; however, that was the earliest they would schedule me and I frankly didn't want to wait that long! So, I made a separate appointment at La Bella Belly Spa! I found out that they will do a gender sonogram once you're 16 weeks and so I was sold!

I know this is the ONLY time that I will ever say this, but I pray that my baby decides to spread its legs tomorrow for everyone to see! :) Hopefully, if he/she is anything like his/her father, he/she will be anything but shy! ;)

People keep asking me if I have a feeling of what the baby is but I don't really know. I kinda think that it's a girl, but I'm sure it will probably be a boy! I don't really care though..just as long as he/she is healthy! :) I just can't wait to actually see my precious baby! It has been SO hard to wait so long to see a picture of my baby. Last time was at 8 weeks, so I know at almost 17 weeks it's going to look so much differently!

I. CAN'T. WAIT!!!

Telling Bryan the big news..

That afternoon, Bryan and I both needed to go work up at school. The timing was perfect because I actually needed to go get a digital pregnancy test (because you know it's not official until you see the "pregnant" on the digital test). We left and I went to Walmart, bought my test, and went to school. I took it at school and sure enough, pregnant popped right up! This was the first picture I took! :)



I had an official smile on my face after reading that! I went home and thank goodness Bryan was still at work. I had just enough time to get my things together and plan out exactly how I was going to tell Bryan!
A few months before, I bought a Texas Ranger's baby onesie, a baseball mit, and a baseball. I wrote on the baseball, "Surprise! You're going to be a Daddy!" 8-20-11 (the date I found out I was pregnant). I placed the pregnancy test inside everything. I even got the camera out and practiced placing it and videoing exactly where I needed it.

We had already planned to have a date night, so everything worked out perfectly! Bryan got home and we both got ready to go out to dinner at our favorite, Texas Roadhouse. Before we left, I told Bryan that because he had been so wonderful to me and helping me lately, I got him a surprise! I made him sit on the couch and close his eyes. While he did that, I ran and got my present, and turned the camera on to record. Later, he tells me that he thought I had bought him an iPad! HA!

Once he opened the present and once he figured out what it was, he was so excited! There might have been a few tears shed (and not by me..ha!). He kept saying, "I'm going to be a Daddy!" After that, several pictures were taken!

You can see all of the pictures here

After all of the pictures were through, we got in the car and headed to dinner. Bryan asked me about 50 million questions about when I found out, how I planned everything, etc. We had a wonderful dinner that night and then celebrated by making our first trip to Babies R Us! We bought baby a super cute teddy bear that's now in his/her nursery!

It was the best night ever and we were so excited to start this new journey as parents! God is so good!
