22 weeks

So I'm now 22 weeks pregnant. It seems to be going much faster and that makes me happy....even though it could never go fast enough I don't think.

I can feel her kicking ALL THE TIME now. I think she is still in the breech position because the kicks are still really low. I wish she would turn so I could let other people feel them. I guess she will in her own time.

I'm really tired and can't think of anything else to report so I'll just post the picture now. It was taken this morning and like I said, I'm really tired and I think it shows.

21 weeks

A day late but oh well.

I still have only gained 3 or 4 pounds which is pretty good I guess. I feel like I've gained 15 at least. Ben can feel her kick now which is so cool. I think she has started doing somersaults in there which feels so weird.
We have begun to obtain baby clothes from friends and family who have girls and are getting rid of stuff. Right now we have about 6 boxes full of clothes. Yes, 6. This kid will never be in need of clothes. We also have a stroller and car seat combo (which we got for $30!) and a crib and mattress. I'm sooooo excited to started getting stuff ready which of course we can't until we move. Hopefully that will be in another week or so. I think that's it for now.
Here's the 21 week picture.

20 weeks

Halfway there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really can't believe that it's been 20 weeks already. Well at times it seems it's flown by but others it seems like it is just dragging.

I feel huge this week. And I'm pretty sure my belly is done filling out and is beginning to stretch, which is not comfortable. I've started having round ligament pain on my sides and those suck. Bad. Other than that, all is well in my world.

I never did get a picture last week but made sure to get one today.

Definitely bigger!
We are still in the waiting process of getting our house but all looks good and if we're lucky, we will be closing by the end of the month. I can't wait!!!

5/6 ultrasound pictures

If you click it will enlarge them:)
These are her huge feet.

Her arms.
It's a girl! Can you see the split? lol

Her arm and back. You can't see her head because it is covered by the amniotic fluid in this picture but I promise, she is not headless.

This one looks so cool.
And this one looks so freaky.

I love this one because it looks like she's posing with her hand propped up under her chin. So cute!

And this is the little skinny minny from the side. She could definitely use some chunkies on her.

week 19

I had a doctor appointment yesterday and another ultrasound. It was the one where they measure all her parts and they said she (yep, it's still a girl) looks very good and that she is actually measuring a week ahead. I have lots of ultrasound pictures that I still have to get scanned in and I'm going to try and do that tonight and post them. She was quite active during the ultrasound and it was so fun to watch her on the screen. I wish I could do that everyday.

I don't have a picture today because I forgot. I'll try and get one tomorrow though.

Amelia is the size of a mango this week. Well that's what the email update said but since she is a week bigger than that I don't know what she's the size of exactly.

I've only gained 2 lbs so far which I think is fabulous. There was sugar in my urine and the nurse said I will most likely develop diabetes but they won't test for it until week 28. I pretty much knew that was coming because diabetes runs in my family and I've had to be tested for it several times already. Not looking forward to that but other than that everything looks great.

Oh and.....we are buying a house!! Our offer was accepted on Tuesday and we are just waiting for the financing to go through. I will post more on that later but we are really excited to finally have a house to call our own. Lots of new stuff going on in our lives this year. Compared to last year, it's a huge relief. God is Great!
