Week 17

Nothing too exciting at this point! Only the waiting begins to find out the sex! Out appointment to find out is November 18 at 11am. TJ is guessing a girl, and I'm thinkin it is totally a boy! So at least one of us will be right! Either way I'm soooo excited! I thought I would care but now all I want is a healthy chunk of baby cuteness!
If you want to make a guess about the sex, birthdate, weight, etc.

I think I have felt munchkin but I am not too sure. I have feelings like what I think it will be like but then again it could be gas bubbles! We will see I know it will happen for sure soon!

So since not too much is going on I will post pictures.... first my offical 17 week picture...Yes I am only carrying one baby...the bump on the backside has always been there:)

We carved our pumpkin tonight...well TJ carved, I dug out the guts (my favorite), and's a baseball player! I love it!

Well had my 3rd doctors appointment today...

We didn't get to see my regular dr. Which I was disappointed but I need to see all the dr's so it's cool. The dr I saw is really nice...she is just rough when it comes to exams so it was ok today.

I gained 3 lbs which makes it 4 total. Which is not bad. Hopefully I can keep it at this pace and not gain too much!

So we just got the doppler thing today. It took a while for her to find the heartbeat which had me and TJ on the edges of our seats. But she found it and said the little one was just making her chase it. TJ and I were both relieved and it is so cool hearing the little galloping heartbeat. I swear I go into my own lala land b/c now I can't remember how strong it was. But TJ said it was very distinct and strong. Good thing I have him b/c I am in dream land sometimes!

I asked her about the cramps I have and she said it is all ligament and growing pains. She advised water, Tylenol, and ice if needed. But she said it was nothing to worry about.

I had to have my blood drawn for some kind of test for Down Syndrome and a few other things. The lady that drew it was nice but when she pulled the needle out I think she ripped my arm off. So my arm is sore, I'll probably bruise.

I am supposed to go back in 4 weeks for another ultrasound to check on the organ development and find out the sex!!!!! But when trying to schedule the appointment the week I am supposed to go is blocked for no ultrasounds. So the receptionist was gonna check on it and call me back. They are trying to keep me on a tight schedule. Well that stinker didn't call me back and I called at like 4:45 but they already had the recording that they were closed on. Dorks! They will be hearing from me first thing in the morning. Hey this is important to me!

TJ was funny b/c he want to ask them if they could schedule my appointment a week earlier b/c he wants to know what it is so bad! haha I sure hope the little one shows us what it is when we go in next time.

Well nothing else too exciting...this appointment was uneventful! But the next one will make up for it!:)

A picture of me at 16 weeks...I think this makes it a little more noticeable than it is but it changes daily.

Pregnant lady

So one of my bosses told me today. " I hope this doesn't offend you but, this is the first day you actually look like a pregnant lady!" So how is that going to offend me! I want to look pregnant! I'm not fat and I know it so I want everyone else to know it with out having to wear a sign on my tummy!

So I took these after dinner this evening and I look forgive the fatness! haha

Week 15!

Wow! 15 weeks it just doesn't seem possible! So things have been going really well! I finally hit the point the sickness has stopped! Praise the Lord! I was worried I was gonna have sickness the whole time!

So not too much new is happening...I'm growing and baby is too! All my weekly e-mails I get from different sights talk about me being able to find out what I'm having. I may have to beg the dr to check it out next week! I don't want to wait until my 20 week appointment! I need to know now...and so does my mom:) But heck I guess me not knowing is good b/c then I will be tempted to buy stuff when I need to hold off so people will have stuff to buy me at my showers!

So I went to last night and picked out some big stuff I want...the changing table, the dresser, the glider, and the stroller/car seat. I know what crib I want! So now I just have to wait to get it all. The changing table, glider, and dresser are online only. So I will be the one who has to order them. I just plan to show them around and see if I get any offers to buy them for us:) I know my mom is doing the crib so that is AMAZING! After talking to TJ's mom she will probably buy one of the bigger things too since they are VERY decently priced. It was amazing I found furniture for great prices and they all had really good reviews from people who had purchased them before. That is a blessing!

I'm not sure reality has completely set in yet but it is definitely on it's way! I am getting so super excited! It is a good thing I have a mom, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law who like talking about the baby too b/c TJ is not the type to get all excited over baby stuff. He has an opinion on certain things which is really nice b/c I'm so indecisive!

So my next appointment is a week from today! I just get so excited! I'm such a worrier I need to know my munchkin is growing like a weed!

Currently the baby is about 4 inches and is about 2 ounces! The size of a navel orange! It looks alot more like a real baby these days, with more proportional arms and legs! No more alien!

I need to go feed the baby:)

2nd Trimester!!!!

Is it really possible I am into my 4th month of pregnancy! 3 down, 6 to go!

I never thought I would make it to this day and here it seems like yesterday I was anxiously awaiting my first appoint! Now I am 2 weeks away from my 3rd appointment and starting my second trimester!

So life has been amazing! I have had to do some readjusting due to my moodiness! haha I didn't want to blame it on my sweet little munchkin but I can now finally admit I'm a hormone raging machine! Poor TJ! But things are getting better so we are on the road to becoming amazing parents that have a great respect for one another. Gosh if we can stick through all the new changes I am going through then we can make it through anything! haha

So I have been sick in the mornings but only on days I have to work! So weird! We just spent the whole weekend with my family in VB! (much needed) Never did I get sick once...I come to work Monday and here we are losing my breakfast of dry toast! How fun! I assume it is all the stress of knowing I have to get alot done!

Well otherwise I am enjoying my adventure to becoming a mom! It is going by really fast but I'm enjoying it. I will be much happier when I feel those little kicks and punches....then it can finally be totally real!

My little monkey is the size of my clinched fist! Getting big!! It is about 2.5 oz and 4 inches! It's little heart is pumping 25 quarts of blood a day!!!! How cool!

I'm getting says I look pregnant but I think I still look like I've been hitting the desserts to hard! But I do see it rounding out so that is very cool!

Time for work!
