Had my first shower last weekend. It was very nice. My grandma and aunt had it for me in Wisconsin where all my extended family lives. I received a beautiful baby quilt from my Gram and my other grandma crocheted me an afghan and washclothes - very cute! I received many adorable gifts, all of which make me even more excited for Baby T-rex to get here! I even got a dinosaur book, bib and t-rex robe! T-rex will be all decked out!

Baby is kicking up a storm. All the kicks are really low so I hope he/she turns around soon! We can't have a breach T-rex. Andy can't feel them yet but I certainly can. They make me laugh. I love it!

Had our ultrasound last week. It was wonderful! The baby is approximately 11-13 inches long and weighs about 1.3 pounds. Apparently the baby is measuring about 4 days bigger than I am pregnant. Also the belly is in the 86th percentile. I asked about changing my diet but she said I should be fine. Since then I have been worried about Gestational Diabetes. I have my glucose test next month but until then I need to curb the sugar intake. We did not find out what T-rex is but the tech said she new. I kind of want to call her and not tell Andy but then I'd feel guilty so I may as well leave well enough alone.

22 Weeks

Nothing much new to report. Still haven't gotten the paint. Am hopefully going tonight. I have been super tired this week but otherwise great! Went with parents last weekend to pick out crib and such. Mom and dad got us our travel system. I am so excited. I just want to open it and put it in the car already. Premature I realize but I am thrilled. We ordered our crib and my MIL bought us the mattress. Can't wait to meet T-rex! 6 more days til' our ultrasound :)
