21 Weeks

I cannot believeI am over the half-way point. It has gone so fast! I had my 4-week check up today. Dr. P was able to find the heartbeat with the doppelar. This the first time I didn't have to have an ultrasound! The heartbeat was 140. I still think its a girl -- Andy wont say. Tonight we are going to Toledo to go buy the crib with our moms. I can't wait to show them all the things we have picked out. It looks like I am having 3 showers. Lori and Barb are having one for me in Wisconsin next month, Kaydrie is having a Garrett shower and Jen and Diane are having an Althaus shower. I can't wait!!!!

I am feeling good right now. I gained 4 lbs this month and am back up to where I started at my first appointment. I need to cool it with the eating now so I don't keep gaining 3 lbs a month! Other than being tired I feel great. I am a little dizzy here and there. I have a few pangs on my right side but the doctor said that was nothing to worry about. I feel like I look pregnant but I don't know if anyone else thinks I look pregnant. Can't believe I am almost 5 months!

Can't wait to meet you Adelyn/Garrett!

Half way point!!!

I can't believe I am 20 weeks. The time has just flown. In the last 24 hours I have become paranoid that we won't get everything done in time. We still haven't painted the nursery (although we have picked out the colors!), we don't have a crib yet, we haven't gone to Tennessee to get Barb's stuff, I don't know what to buy, I am sort of freaking out!

Pregnancy wise I feel great! I have my next appointment next Friday. As of my last appointment I was still under what I had started with but in the last month I've gotten my appetite back so I am sure that is not still the case.

Can't wait until my next ultrasound!

Boy am I tired. I dread what it'll be like in a few months when I'm ready to pop. Otherwise everything is very good. I am eating again, trying to exercise some, and have started working around the house again. I am tired if being in a vegitative state. I need some movement! I'm not sure how much I am showing since I am already overweight. Just another reason to envy skinny people. Better guages of baby bumps! Can't wait until June 11th when we get our next ultrasound!

18 Weeks

Wow, I can't believe I am this far along! Life is good. I can eat again. I sleep a ton. I can't feel the baby kick yet but my doctor said at this point that is not unusual. I am loving the spring, planting flowers, ect. I can't wait to meet our little Baby T-rex!

17 weeks

I am 17 weeks today. I can't believe I am almost half way there. I had my check up this week. I've gained 3 pounds since my last check up but I am not yet at my first appointment weight. They couldn't find the heartbeat again with the doppler so I had to have another ultrasound. The heartbeat was fine -- 150. The baby was all scrunched in a ball so we couldn't get a good look at him/her. I still think it is a girl. I would start calling the baby Adelyn but if it is a boy I don't want to insult him! :) My nausea has pretty much subsided and I have a little more engery. I've started cleaning the house again and am anxious to get some flowers planted. Our next appointment is after Memorial Day and then the "big" ultrasound is two weeks after that. We are still not going to find out what we are having unless the baby is straddling the camera at our ultrasound in June. We've picked out the nursery colors but have not yet painted. We need to start getting furniture too. The last 17 weeks have flown by if the next 17 do I'll never be ready for Baby T-rex!
