Yes I know

I suck. I don't have a week 19 picture or the weekly check in. I'm so stinkin' excited for Thursday that I keep forgetting to take a picture.  I'll make sure to get back to my regularly scheduled postings on Thursday.  Also just a reminder, I will not be putting the baby's gender on here until after I've sent out my Christmas cards,going in the mail on Friday, as I have some family that reads this blog.

FOUR DAYS until I get to see my baby, FOUR DAYS until we know what we're having, FOUR DAYS until I've reached the halfway point! FOUR DAYS....................

Happy Thanksgiving

Every year we have so much to be thankful for, but this year is a little, ok A LOT more special. I'm so thankful for my family, my friends who are family, both of us having stable jobs that allow us to be able to have what we need and what we want, our health, Snoopy and of course Wiggle. I'm so thankful that for the past couple of weeks every once in awhile I can feel Wiggle squirming around.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving!

19 wks

PS. Don't forget to vote on if you think wiggle is a boy or a girl!

Holy cripes

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh.  We're buying a crib tonight. Oh my gosh.

Pictures to come later.


Week 18 *edited*

What's going on in there?

Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby's finally big enough that you'll be able to feel those movements soon.

Well I can't give you a weekly update because the stupid computer won't let me copy and paste.  I'm 18 weeks, feeling some kicks more of the kid doing the worm in there. I love to sleep and I'm enjoying this pregnancy so much!

I have a picture but blogger is being horrible and not uploading so I'll edit this once I get home.

Oh Colts how I love thee

Way to pull out the win!!! Oh and thanks to the crowd I felt an awesome kick to the appendix.  I don't think Wiggle was amused by the screaming. Or Wiggs was trying to tell me to shut up since I was screaming so much.

Week 17

What's going on with baby?
 Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints.

How far along? 17 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: about 4 lbs

Maternity clothes? yes to the pants and mixing up between regular shirts and maternity shirts.

Stretch marks? I had two more pop up. Thanks family genes for that one

Sleep: Can't get enough. I just need to stop waking up on my back

Best moment this week: going to see the doctor

Movement: More flutters

Food cravings: Wendy's chili and baked potato and now cheese sauce.-same

Gender: I'm back to thinking girl

Labor Signs: nada

Belly Button in or out? in

What I miss: Not getting winded so easily

What I am looking forward to: Thanksgiving at work on Wednesday then on Friday with friends.

Weekly Wisdom: prenatal massages are amazing

Milestones: Making it another week and having multiple people tell me that I look fantastic and I do pregnancy well.

 The bump looks a little smaller in this picture.

And here's one with Snoopy. He wanted to get in on it too.

I haven't forgotten

I'm waiting until tonight to post my weekly updates. I'm tired of having the tampon machine in the reflection in the mirror of my belly shots so I'm going to wait until Chris can take it tonight.  I'm also waiting to get pictures from my friend Callie. We used to work together and then she moved away.  She came back to town this week and we went to lunch yesterday at Olive Garden. (YUM) But she took a picture of me and then of us. I  can't wait to see those pictures!

So I will update tonight, but it might be late as we're going to go watch the Brownsburg Varsity Football team tonight with Chris's co-worker.

Dr appointment

I really wanted to title the post the same as after my last appointment. There really is a baby in there.  Dr said that everything is looking great so far. My bp was 118/60, which is surprising with how nervous I was. I'm so afraid of the chance of a missed m/c. So on the way to the appointment we were rocking out to Linkin Park. I'm up a total of 3 lbs which is not bad at all!

On to the more important number. Wiggle's heart beat was 168 again! She was surprised that it was still that high, but I explained that we were dancing in the car. She gave me the information for our next appointment which is when we'll be finding out.  I won't be posting it on the blog because I'm telling extended family in our Christmas card so I don't want to spoil it. 

Holy crap, how am I 16 weeks 4 days pregnant?  I know, I know time flies when you're having fun. :-)

Week 16

What's going on in there.
Watch what you say... tiny bones forming in baby's ears mean the little one can now pick up your voice. Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming. And, if you're interested, an ultrasound might be able to determine gender.

How far along? 16 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: about 3 lbs

Maternity clothes? yes to the pants and mixing up between regular shirts and maternity shirts.

Stretch marks? no new ones

Sleep: Loving it, but starting to wake up more. That might have to do with Chris's cold though.

Best moment this week: Every day being pregnant.

Movement: I think I'm feeling the flutters again

Food cravings: Wendy's chili and baked potato and now cheese sauce.

Gender: I'm back to thinking girl

Labor Signs: nada

Belly Button in or out? in

What I miss: Nothing really

What I am looking forward to: All of my Thanksgivings and hearing the heart beat again on Monday.

Weekly Wisdom: Buy a massaging heating pad. I'm in love with mine.

Milestones: Making it another week.
