Haven’t posted any belly pics in awhile… here is one from 20 weeks, and one from 22 weeks.  I’ll take one this coming Sunday for 24 weeks.  Seems like every 2 weeks shows at least a little growth.  She’s moving around a lot more lately, it’s pretty cool/bizarre, definitely enjoyable and brings a smile to my face.

Well painting is complete!  I will post some pictures of the nursery in progress as soon as I can… but I thought I’d share some artwork I created.  I picked up some cheap white frames from ikea and wanted to put something colorful in them to hang above the crib.  So here’s what I came up with using my illustrator skillzzzz, we’ll see how they look against the aqua walls!  I also ordered a rug from Dash & Albert, can’t wait until it comes in!

So I found this picture today online… and I want it to be our nursery concept!  Love the aqua walls, white upholstery and bright pillows.  Hmmm now to translate it into baby room!

So last Friday we had our “big” ultrasound appointment at 18 weeks!  It went great (the tech said everything looked fine) and we found out that it’s a GIRL!  We are thrilled. 🙂  I was a little embarrassed during it because I had to drink 32 oz. of water an HOUR before the u/s and hold it.  Well, 15 minutes into it, I thought I was literally going to pee my pants.  She let me get up and go pee for 10 seconds.  I said to her “So does this ever happen or am I just a wimp,” and she said it doesn’t happen very often!  Way to make me feel better!  The ultrasound was so cool though, the baby was moving around constantly (maybe because I loaded up on sugar with Skittles beforehand), she kept opening her mouth, sucking her thumb, stretching her legs and putting her arms over her head.  It’s so weird how active she is and I can’t feel it all yet.  I made Steve take the pic below so I could put it on facebook.  He just loves it when I make him do stuff like that. 🙂

Well with a new baby comes a new room!  I’ve started thinking about nursery decor ideas, but have been trying to wait until we know the sex to go any further.  I like the idea of doing something kinda gender neutral anyway, but who knows once I find out if we’ll have a sweet little girl or rambunctious little guy.  We did find a crib and changing table on craigslist – Jenny Lind style in white.  Anyway these are some nursery pics I’ve seen where I actually like the colors lol.

14 Weeks

14 weeks?  I’ve had this baby in there for 14 weeks (technically 12)?  It’s still so weird and surreal… I’m guessing it will feel that way until I can actually feel him/her moving around in there, even then it might feel surreal.  What’s goin on this week

The baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his/her thumb!  His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he’ll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too!

In other news: Your baby’s stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches – about the size of a lemon — and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces. His body’s growing faster than his head, which now sits upon a more distinct neck. By the end of this week, his arms will have grown to a length that’s in proportion to the rest of his body. (His legs still have some lengthening to do.) He’s starting to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair, called lanugo, all over his body. Your baby’s liver starts making bile this week — a sign that it’s doing its job right — and his spleen starts helping in the production of red blood cells. Though you can’t feel his tiny punches and kicks yet, your little pugilist’s hands and feet (which now measure about 1/2 inch long) are more flexible and active.
