My belly is fuzzy like animal. I can't stop petting it.

For your belly oogling pleasure...

Week 19

Not too much going on these days, I gained a few pounds (126.2). I have gained 12 pounds so far! I KNOW my gut is hanging everywhere, but around my bellybutton still measured the usual 34 1/2. However I had Chris measure my lower belly which was 35 something and my upper which was 32. I have never been that big up there so I am growing all over! I got me one big wall of baby. My entire belly is feeling tight and hard, but still no signs of movement. 12 days!

My first comment

This morning I was chatting it up with a lady on my ferry, and she says "I see you're expecting..." I was shocked! Am I finally there? I thought I just looked really fat and bloated still. Most people won't go there unless it's obvious. Maybe it is now? Hmmm....

Week 18

I really don't get it. I shrunk! Maybe I just was really bloated. I weighed 123.6 and measured 34 1/4. Weird. It bummed me out because I was all excited this morning expecting to be all big. When I stretch out my stomach I can feel the tightness of my uterus around my mid section.

I think I just suddenly grew today. I was checking myself out naked (I always examine my belly before I shower) and I just looked like a pregnant woman. Not like, "oh I look bloated", it was like "whoa, I look like a pregnant lady!" I had Chris measure me and I was 35 3/8! I knew it wasn't all in my head. Chris also made a comment about my belly spilling over my pants. It's starting! I'll be a whale in no time.

Week 17

This morning I weighed 123.0, so I barely gained any weight this week. But my belly grew a little. It was 34 3/4. Nothing really changed this week. I'm starting to really notice pressure on my belly now, my uterus is getting bigger and I can tell. Your stomach gets stiff like you have gas all the time but you don't. I should be feeling movement anytime now!

Checkup Appt. No. 2

Well, I assumed I was going to get felt up again today but didn't, I didn't even undress. I had a choice to do the triple screen test (different diseases) but declined. I met another midwife today, her name was Carmen. I liked her too. Chris was with me this time, and all we did was listen to the heartbeat. 155 bpm. Ahhh....
She also was pushing on my stomach showing me where the baby is. The baby is high now, near my belly button! And I could feel the pressure!
I asked her a few questions I had saved up. First I wanted to know what my max heartrate should be when I work out. I don't want to over do it. Second, thanks to Amanda I had to ask how many holes are in my nipples (I was betting there was only one, there are multiple, she won). Lastly if I can take extra Vit C when I'm sick. Tomorrow is one week since I got this cold of mine and let me tell you, I have never blown so much snot out of my head. I'm going for some kind of record. I hardly get sick and when I do it's quick 'n easy. So, perhaps another preggo thing. I have had 2 colds already!

A few firsts!

Grandma Jeri sent us baby's first present, a beautiful handmade fleece blankie. I have no doubt it will be "her" favorite!
Chris and I were grocery shopping today and decided to pick up some diapers. So here they are. $10.18 for 62. Not bad, that's a good value. It's when their butts get bigger that it's not such a good value anymore.
Later Amanda sent me a link for the best consumer ratings for diapers. Apparently Huggies are the best. I'm already a bad parent. HA...kidding.

Close Encounters

Imagine going out to your car in the dark. Imagine hearing little "klankity klank" noises out in the road. Imagine looking in the street and seeing some black thing. What is that??? Is it a dog? Is it a sheep? No. It's a pig. A boar is trotting down our little suburban street like it's nobody's business. How cute is that! Wish I had a camera.

Week 15 Day 5...Ah let's just round it off...16 weeks

Wow, I'm 4 months now! And I am very excited this morning because I finally broke out of the 33's! I weighed 122.8 (ouch) and measured a whoppin 34 1/4! Amazing. I bet those grilled cheese's I keep eating have something to do with that.
I didn't want to tell the world about my sex life, but I also want to keep track of this stuff. So sorry in advance. Lets just say the past few weeks were peak. But it's going back down again.
I can eat about anything, just no asparagus!
And let me tell you...my emotions this week are killer. Yesterday I watched Fried Green Tomatoes and kept crying. Then later a pet adoption commercial for abused animals came on and I lost it. I wasn't just crying I was bawling. I am so glad Chris was outside working on the car because I looked like a retard.
I have a cold again thanks to Chris, and it is hard because I won't take anything.
Oh and one last thing, I have to get up in the night to pee again. I had a nice 1-2 week break.
