14 wk Ultrasound Picts!

Okay, so I'm actually finally trying to figure out how this blogsite works. Jared set it up, so this is the first time I've messed with it. We are aware that we are really behind on updating and we apologize for that. In all honesty not a whole lot of really interesting stuff has taken place since the last post, but I will try to do a quick update.
I have finally moved out of the first trimester, and feel that on most days a lot of my energy is coming back. The first trimester was much more rough this time around which has had me thinking "Girl"! Jared, after the last ultrasound, I think is pretty certain it is a boy however after something that he said he saw. It really doesn't matter to either of us what it ends up being, but a girl sure would be fun to dress up! Considering space and money, another boy would probably make for a more economic situation ; ). That probably doesn't sound too nice, but you know what I mean. We have our next u/s in exactly a month to find out what we will be blessed with.
My cravings during this pregnancy have been pretty different as well. I have wanted more fruits and salads, but pizza usually sounds good too! I think I've had more aversions than cravings though, which is probably a good thing. My belly is already looking pretty big, people think I'm much further along than I actually am or that I'm having twins. I have to keep reassuring them that I'm not. I don't have any current pictures of myself to post, but I'll try to get some soon. Last week, when we had the u/s done, the baby was measuring a week big. Not too bad, but it does get me a little concerned that I'll be carrying another big baby. Except this time it will be through the summer. We had the first part of the screening tests done last week. They check for Down's, and several other things. I got a call this morning saying that my results came back great, but I still have to take the other half of the screening in a couple of weeks. So, it's looking like whatever we are having should be a healthy one.
Okay, so these are the new pictures of the baby! This is really the most exciting thing that's happened so far, so I definitely wanted to get these posted for everyone. We hope you enjoy!
I just wanted to add, the profile shots look exactly the same as Jackson's when he was the same size. Funny!
