18 weeks

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 the biggest update that we have is that Nugget's birthday has been scheduled. I have to have everyone write it down in permanent marker so my cord doesn't think we can evict him any sooner. My mom and I decided that my cord got confused without having a set date and figured it was time. So our little nugget boy will be born on February 21, 2011. The c-section is scheduled for noon, but we all know there is a good possibility it will get pushed back a little. Lara~I tried to get the first one of the day per your suggestion, but no such luck. :-)

If you're wondering why we (well I decided) chose February 21st, here's why. Aidan was born on Monday February 1st. that is 2-1 and the 21st is also a Monday and well....the 2-1 of 21. I really wanted to have the date have a special meaning and how much more special could that be.  When I told my ob why I wanted that date she started to tear up a little and said it's perfect and meant to be.

I love you Aidan Christopher and Nugget



  1. Ahhh! Too bad the first slot was already taken. That's a good note to get it scheduled ASAP when I get pregnant. :)

    And what a perfect date!!! I am writing it down in permanent marker on my calendar. I love that idea! Maybe that was our mistake too. Caleb and Aidan just got too excited to meet their awesome mama and time we just should be so awesome. :)

    See you Feb. 21, Nugget...and not a SECOND earlier!

    And I'm loving your bump!

  2. Perfect!!!! :) My due date is 2/19th! (((HUGS)))

  3. Hey Maggie! Can I have your e-mail address? I don't see it anywhere on your blog. I have Aidan's pumpkin to send! :)
