IT'S A....

BOY!!!  Yes, we are having another son, a little baby brother for Tyler!  My ultrasound went well (aside from HORRIBLE back pain from laying flat on the hard table) and everything looks great!  He seems very healthy and was wiggling a lot, but he wasn't super cooperative, not giving very many good shots of his face and crossing his legs for a lot of it! I still have the fibroid, but it hasn't grown and probably won't cause any problems along the way.

 Little face
And the money shot!

We are still thinking about names, we're very picky!  I'm starting to feel more little bumps and thumps.  Baby is the size of a CANTALOUPE this week!  How did we go from a sweet potato to a cantaloupe in one week?!  Doesn't that seem much bigger to anyone else???  But that's what my handy dandy ticker tells me.  I think the tech said he weighs about 12 oz. 

I'm so glad he is healthy and well!

19 weeks and counting!

19 weeks pregnant!  Last week, baby was the size of a sweet potato.  This week baby is mango-sized!  LOL hard to believe!  I’ve been feeling pretty decent the last week or so.  I’m not as sick to my stomach, which makes a nice change!  I still am not a huge fan of food, but I’m managing alright for now.  I’m starting to show now, with a little bit of tummy poking out.  And a few days ago, I became convince that I am indeed feeling our little baby move and wiggle in there!  It usually happens a half dozen times or so a day and the number seems to be going up.  He or she has been pretty active in the last hour even!  It is great to have that little bit of reassurance and to feel that special bond, knowing that I’m the only one that can experience this right now. It’s like a sweet secret!

Speaking of he or she, big anatomy screening on FRIDAY!!!!  I can’t wait!  I don’t know how I’m going to make it until Friday at 3:30 pm!  Expect a big post Friday night or Saturday :D  Assuming baby cooperates!!!
