A New Year, A New Baby!

SURPRISE! We are so excited to share that Harper & Eloise will become big sisters to our newest baby Garvin, due in July 2015!
Photo Credit to Rustic White, thank you so much for snapping this pic for us!

Ah, where to start! As you may have guessed, baby number three was a bit of a surprise. The day I found out, Brandon had just left for California for a few days so I had to call him & tell him the news over the phone. He went silent on the other end for a solid few seconds, I wasn’t sure if he was actually speechless or maybe he had passed out. Then we laughed & cried some happy tears, and then got super excited!! I went in for my first ultrasound right away & found out that my official due date is 4th of July!
We find out a week from today if baby number three is a boy or a girl. With two girls already, everyone has been asking if we are hoping for a boy this time. Truth be told, we would love either!! Of course I would love to experience having a baby boy, but I’ve become pretty obsessed with having baby girls, so it will be wonderful either way. I know Brandon wouldn’t mind a helping hand in the garage, but Harper has gotten pretty darn good at it. She told him the other day that he needed a new bit for his drill (which he totally did), I was cracking up. Based on how I have felt this pregnancy, quite a bit different than with the girls, my initial guess was that we were having a boy but the heart rate was very high (as was both girls) & the ultrasound tech hinted that it could mean it is a girl. We are so excited to find out the news & can’t wait to share!

I know the blog has been a little quiet lately, mostly because our days are busier than ever & I am in bed by nine which is typically the only time I have to blog. I have been insanely tired, mostly disgusted by coffee again this pregnancy which doesn’t help, so I am looking forward to having a little energy back as I roll into the second trimester. I have been craving fish & watermelon. And naps.

So thank you all very much for your kind words on my Instagram post (you can follow along @jlgarvin), all of your comments & well wishes were very much appreciated!! We felt the love & hope you all know how much it means to us!! Cheers to an exciting, adventurous & amazing New Year!! I sincerely wish you all the best & may all of your wishes for 2015 come true! XO

    So exciting! Very happy for you, and praying for you in the coming year. Also will be anxiously awaiting the news on gender! How awesome that they can tell you so early on! Here in PA, we always have to wait til 20 weeks– they only do one ultrasound in this state! Not good when you're impatient πŸ˜‰ Happy New Year, and best wishes to the Garvins!

    My son had a heart rate close to 180 until the end of my pregnancy, so we were shocked when he was a boy! I grew up as the middle of 3 sisters, and it was a blast, but as a mother to a little boy, I hope you get that. There is no bond quite like the mother/son bond! Congrats!

    So exciting! But how do you get to find out gender so early?! I'm jealous! My doctor makes me wait until 19 weeks. I'm preg with baby numero 3 right now, I'll have three under three, so the 'ol "you'll have your hands full!" is something I get told daily. Congrats Garvin fam!

So just because its a high heart rate doesn't always mean a girl. I'm so excited to see pregnancy posts! Xoxo best wishes & a happy new years!

Our little man was a surprise as well but I'm told after the first couple couple months of crazy, you will love having them so close together in age:)) Let's hope that's true! ::cheers!:: ;))

    She didn't find out the gender- she said the tech guessed, based on the baby's heartrate, which is an old wive's tale. You can find out gender as early as 11-12 weeks by taking a new blood test liek Materniti21.

    The heart rate doesn't have any relation to the sex of the baby; the heart rate is always higher earlier in pregnancy.

    It's surely fate that if a baby was to be born on a holiday (especially Fourth of July), it would be yours. I'd love to see you have a boy – to even out the playing field, of course, but I think my ovaries are telling me it's another girl. 4:1. Wow. Biggest Congratulations!!! 2015 is going to be THE year!

Found out way earlier (I was 10.5 weeks before finding out with my daughter), major morning sickness to where I had to take meds which I had zero with Vivian and couldn't eat anything during my first trimester.

    So excited for you guys. I have read your blog for years and rarely comment, but you are one of my favorites! Such a cute announcement and can relate to having our first baby last Feb 2014 and then BB2 is due in May 2015! Whew. Such little blessings and we are having another BOY!

    So excited for your whole family! I'm due July 14 with my second so I look forward to all your mama and baby items suggestions. I'm craving fish too! My doctor said she never heard that before, at least from someone still in their first trimester when most women are so sick…hahaha. So enjoy…and I look forward to all your fun posts πŸ˜‰

    Wow! Congratulations! I'm 19 weeks with our first and it's a little girl! We can't wait! Funny, I've been craving the EXACT same foods and also had an aversion to coffee during my first trimester. No aversions of any kind right now! Such a great surprise!

    Dont worry about that heart rate nonsense I felt super different and knew it was a boy, even though his heart rate was higher. Go with your instincts. Congrats either way and welcome to the crazy amazing world of three kids!

Hard sometimes, yes, but great none the less. I can't wait to find out if you're team pink or team blue this time around. I have boy, girl, boy, myself.

    Blood tests to test for gender are very common. Most women I know all get the blood test. We waited until I was 18 weeks, but most people I know find out between 11 and 13 weeks via blood test.

    Cutest announcement ever – it's already getting copied on Instagram! Such exciting news!! The little ones will love being close in age – although I'm sure it'll be hard in the beginning. Now I have baby fever for another one! I'm almost rooting girl, just because you make such cute little girls! I hope we get to find out in a week too. πŸ˜‰
