So after reading several books, magazines, and friends & family suggestions, Roberto and I finally decided on a name. JAELYN! As soon as I saw it I fell in love with it. When I showed it to Roberto, he was the same way. It was actually text to me from my friend Laura Spence, as a joke....and it ends up being the WINNER! ha-ha Who would have imagined. It isn't in many books yet, I haven't heard many kids with the same name either. My Dr. said she hasn't delivered a Jaelyn and she loved it too. After about 2 months of still looking and debating to make sure we were making the right decision that we would love for the rest of our lives, we decided there was no other name we loved more. Now if the middle name could just be this easy! I guess the saying "When you know you know" is really true for many things.
So Baby Martinez is growing just wonderfully. She is now 10 oz. The sonographer said she is a very active little baby, but I still don't feel her all the time. I can't wait until I constantly feel her kicking and moving about. We got 5 cute little pictures of her for her scrapbook! It is just amazing how big she has gotten and how much more she will grow in 4 months!!! It really blows my mind the little miracle that is inside me.
Last night as I was laying in bed winding down from the day, I felt something in my stomach. I figured it was just gas as usual, but this time it wasn't! Then it came a second time and a third. This little girl was on the move, and of course when I am trying to go to sleep! Figures, right! ha-ha. I didn't care though, it was the greatest feeling in the world to finally feel her in there moving around. I layed there very still for abotu 10 more minutes waiting for some more movement, but nothing. I guess she was just getting herself positioned for bed the same way I do....by thrashing around until I am comfortable! Ohhhhh I can't wait to feel it again. I wanted to stay home from work all day today so I could just lay there and hope to feel something.
So I changed Dr.'s halfway through my pregnancy and I couldn't be more happy. On my first appt. Dr. Welborn did a sonogram and there it was A GIRL! I couldn't have been happier to hear the good news. Excpet Roberto was in New York visiting family so I had to wait to tell everyone until I could tell him when he got home. Boy was that the hardest kept secret I have EVER had in my life! So I might have slipped and told one or two people ha-ha :) So when Roberto got home 5 days later, I told him. He was a little disappointed that he isn't going to have his little major leaguer, but he is still excited it's a girl! He is coming around and I kow as soon as he sees her little face he isn't going to be able to let her out of his sight. Now on to planning the nursery! How exciting!!!!
Roberto and I have been married since March 28, 2009. We decided on our honeymoon that we were ready for God to bless us with a family when he was ready, so we would no longer prevent it from happening. After my first month off birth control we found out on June 16 (the day before Father's day) that I was 5 weeks pregnant! Wow, as if I needed any other sign from God that we were ready! We couldn't be more happy! I have been waiting for this day since I met him. So now the countdown officially begins!
