26 Weeks

Mike finally felt the baby kick! Up until now she had been a stubborn little munchkin who would stop kicking whenever anyone else would put their hand on my belly :) What a cutie. In any case, I'm thrilled that he finally got to feel it!

We had our 26 week appointment which went very well. We had to meet with the midwife in the practice this time, as they make you meet with everyone. The heartbeat was strong and healthy at 140. I did gain about 10 pounds since my last appointment, which is about 6 pounds more than people usually gain in amonths time. Me thinks I should stop eating every container of Easy Mac that comes into my view!

25 Weeks!

She's so active this weekend that I highly suspect she's rehearsing the "All That Jazz" scene from Chicago in there! My belly button is starting to poke out, which for some reason I really like. What can I say? I'm in love with this ever-growing belly, despite the fact that when one of Mike's friends commented "thats a freaking huge ham" I thought he was referring to me and my size and not the actual ham in the kitchen. Ahhh... pregnesia strikes again! :)

Jazz hands!

All morning it's felt like the baby has been tap dancing-including jazz hands- in my belly. I love it! A little shuffle-heel-change to the right, a little shuffle-heel-change to the left, 23 skiddoo on my bladder and a big jazz hands finish ;-)

OUr first baby, Lady Sprawlingsworth herself, has been experiencing a tad bit of jealousy as we get things ready for our new arrival. She does not quite understand that everything is not for her.

24 Weeks

Only 16 weeks left! Eek! We can't wait though:) Not a whole lot to report, just growing, growing, growing all the time! She's had her tiny tush shoved up to one side of my belly all day, so we've been laughing at my lopsided tummy. She's such a cutie pie already! Stubborn though, we can tell! NO idea where she gets THAT from [insert sidelong glance at Mike]. LOL :)

Today we've been cleaning the house and organizing the nursery closet. Can I just say that baby girl clothes are perhaps the cutest clothing items on the planet? Seriously, how adorable is that?

23 Weeks

Hello! Another week is upon us:) It's been amazing this week to be able to sit and actually watch my belly move from her tiny kicks:) We could dot hat all day- it's amazing! You gotta love being able to fall more and more in love with a tiny person you still haven't met yet!

22 Weeks!

22 Weeks! The baby is now almost a foot long (or 10 inches crown to rump) and my belly officially looks undeniably pregnant, which I love!

PS I can't see my feet anymore, which makes it difficult to buckle my own shoes! :-P
