Week 16

Today is the start of week 16. "Chickpea" is this big...

So I read somewhere that if you take a flashlight and shine it at your belly you may feel some movement from "Chickpea" but that it usually won't start until about 16 weeks. We tried it last night and I don't know if I felt anything because I fell asleep!! So I tried it again this morning but honestly, I don't know what I am looking for. I read it will feel like gas bubbles that aren't really gas bubbles or like popcorn popping in my belly. I think it is just to soon to feel anything but when I do, I'll be sure to share my excitement with those who care.

It seems like there is always so much going on but not anything exciting to write about.

Stephen and I have both been sick with a stomach bug. Let me tell's been lots of fun! He is feeling better then I am. I just keep trying to remind myself that there is someone in there and I still have to drink lots of water and eat. Easier said then done!

Stephen is making lots of progress on the bathroom and laundry room. The tub is in and now he is working on the plumbing. I think that by tonight or tomorrow night, the plumbing to the tub may be complete or near complete. But don't quote me on that!

We have picked out the stroller and carrier set that we like. I think it is universal and we may get another use out of the stroller at least when we have number 2. Trust me, right now I am in no hurry!

We have no big plans for labor day though I am sure there will be numerous BBQ invites. Stephen has some goals set for remodeling work and so I think we will be home a lot. Resting on the couch works for me and the Morgers :)

In case I don't post again until after the holiday..hope you have a great one and Happy September!

4 week countdown...

4 weeks from today we go for our next ultrasound! Hopefully "Chickpea" will cooperate and we will know if "Chickpea" is a boy or a girl.

Stay tuned....

It's been a few days...

Yeah yeah, I know...I'm slacking on the posting. Fire me!! :) Things are hectic around here right now. Work is super busy this week and if you didn't know, Stephen is in the process of remodeling the laundry room and downstairs bathroom. When it is all done, we will have 2 full baths! How exciting! Then he is on to the next project....the nursery!

This is what the bathroom looked like the other day...

So here is the belly pic we took on Sunday. As you can see it is growing...

I am currently in my 14th week and that means 2nd trimester. Wahoo!!! This week the baby is the size of a lemon. Only the size of a lemon and yet my belly is big enough for at least 4!

I wish I had something exciting to post today...I'll see what I can come up with for tomorrow!

Love this!

Stephen and I found the nursery set that we Y. I think this is something we can use for a boy or a girl. I can't wait!!

Doctor says..

After "Chickpea"wouldn't cooperate for the doctor to find the heartbeat and I was getting frustrated, she was finally able to find it. What a sound! I still get so excited just thinking about it. I think Stephen was really excited too. The doctor said the heart beat was around 140. Ok, so that's a good thing (120 to 160 is normal). Then she says with a heart rate like that, her prediction is a boy. Oh boy!! I haven't changed as many boy diapers as I have girls. Guess I need some lessons!

And I might need some of these.....

It is amazing what people come up with these days!

* Note - we do not know that "Chickpea" is a boy. Our next ultrasound is 9/25 and if you know who cooperates, we will find out if its a boy or a girl that day. Stay tuned....*

I love being hormonal..

Not!!! I just had a 10 minute crying fit because the dog stepped on my boob as she was trying to lay down next to me on the couch. Stephen didn't know what to do other then laugh at me! This is the first "meltdown" I've had but I am sure it won't be the last!

The post that starts it all!

I thought this was as good a time as any to start blogging. It is a great place for people to see how the pregnancy is coming along and eventually a place to see pictures of our new bundle of joy.

I have had many requests to see the growing baby belly so here they are....

This is the first picture we took and pretty much right after we found out.

This is the week 8 picture. Yes, Morgan likes to be in the pictures too!

We took this picture a week and a half ago. This was the morning after our friends wedding in Rochester, NY.

We had our first ultrasound last week. Our "Chickpea" was very feisty at first, waving and kicking. They couldn't get the picture they needed for the first trimester screening so they asked me to drink some water and come back in so they could try again. Wouldn't you know by the time I got back in "Chickpea" was asleep! Somebody did not want to cooperate! We eventually got all the necessary pictures and here is one that they gave us.

I promise to try and post often!
