The Hoopes

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

It's A...............

Our 20 week ultrasound was April 28th, we were so nervous and excited! Our baby's heart rate has been consistently dropping. .176bpm...170bpm...150bpm...146bpm!! I feel great besides the occasional aches and pains of growing and stretching for baby and feeling tired! I have been blessed so far! I have felt some small movements at 18 weeks and see recently but nothing too strong! We are both excited for daddy to be able to feel!! I am so pleased to announce that.....

I have been gone for far to long my friends! I am 19 weeks along and next week is our ultrasound to find out the baby's gender and make sure baby is healthy! We are looking forward to this appointment! I will be posting more frequently now. I forgot my password and login name because I got rid of my Kindle and upgraded to a smart phone!!
These were taken today at 19 weeks 2 days :) I promise to bring everyone up to date with more posts! Xoxo B

Baby Hoopes is making his/her arrival....

We are so excited to announce Baby Hoopes is due September 14, 2014. We went to our first appointment Thursday February 6 and it was everything and more. We had our ultrasound first and it was so amazing, we got to see our peanut and the heartbeat(174 bpm)...boy/girl??? We don't care we just were so thrilled to see that little heart beating! We have our 12 week appointment in 3 weeks to see our Doctor, so we can find out more then:) Has anyone ever heard of taking Flouride while pregnant due to having well water?? I've never heard of this, and am not quite sure we need that...comments!! Xoxo B

Starting to really get this blog thing down:) I love change, to a certain degree that is meaning on my demands! I rearrange our furniture twice a month, I've changed where our silverware goes 3 times in 5 years. It's just in my nature to rearrange, grow, clean, change. As you can see I've changed my blog already:) I'm sure it won't be the last time. But things are about to change for us in a big way shortly, and I'm overwhelmed, but truly excited and ready for the adventure:)

The feelings you feel when you get that positive are so overwhelming! We will go to our first appt the first week of February and we can't wait. We have no clue what to expect and I'm a little nervous but overall excited. I'm actually feeling great so far other than some nausea, sore boobies, fatigue, hungry all the time and running to the bathroom. I have noticed my hair is greasy and I'm having some slight acne nothing bad, I also notice I'm hot all the time. JUST KEEPING IT REAL :) ....maybe a little too real for some! Once we have our appt. I will start posting some photos and give more updates:) Thank you for the comments too, I love them and feel free to leave any advice we are all ears! Xoxo B

Hey Folks!! Hope everyone had a great New Year! Mine was the best and I'm so excited for 2014 :) I want to start the new year with wedding posts!! Weddings make everyone happy and I love looking at others pictures. It's strange because I want to have this "cool"/ relatable/ realistic blog so for me this was a big monumental moment for me and obviously very real!! So I want to share:) All photos are courtesy of Lisa Schwartz Photography!! Chris and I got married in June, it was so hot that day but a beautiful one! When my parents and I were driving yo the ceremony my dad said "BROOK one day you will look up at the sky and it will remind you of this's a great feeling and day when that happens". We couldn't get there fast enough! We had an outdoors ceremony at the Blue Bird Farm, we had a few of our closest friends and family, I'll let the pictures do the talking...So blessed..I love my husband!
I will be posting more Photos don't worry!! I enjoy your comments too so feel free to leave em! Xoxo B
