20 weeks

We had our 20 week ultrasound yesterday, and found out that baby is healthy and right on track with growth. I absolutely love seeing those pictures on the screen, so amazing!

We were also able to find out what we are having....

How far along?: 20 wks 2 days
How big is baby?: Around 10 1/2 oz, about 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and 10 inches long from head to heel...the length of a banana
Weight gain?: About 8 pounds total.
Stretch marks?: Same.
Maternity clothes?: Some, but not completely switched over yet. Feeling more comfortable in maternity pants, but still not filling out shirts completely
Sleep?: Good.
Best moment this week?: Finding out we are having a GIRL!!!!! So excited! :)
Food cravings?: Nothing in particular.
Gender?: BABY GIRL!!!!
Movement?: Yep! I felt her kick from the outside this week, a lot earlier than with Levi. It was very light and not very consistent though.
Belly button?: No change.
What I miss?: Nothing much yet.
Labor signs?: Nope!
What I'm looking forward to?: Our friends' wedding this afternoon! Looking forward to a fun time with out friends while Levi spends the night at grandma's!

Some more pics

Just some more pics from the first half of the month.

Levi and I made some cookies on New Year's Day. He loves dumping things in the bowl!
 Enjoying his lunch!
 Horsey rides from daddy are the best!`
We went bowling a couple weeks ago, and Levi loved it! He had a hard time waiting his turn, but he loved pushing the ball down the ramp.
A few from Christmas with the Staples. Levi and Aaron examining the back of the box from Aaron's tractor.

changing things up

I decided to change up the look of my blog a little. I'm not sure if I will keep it like it is or not. I wanted it to be a little simpler, but I haven't decided if I like it or not. I really have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to that stuff. So don't be surprised if things are changing every so often until I find something I like!

19 weeks

Well, now that I'm almost HALF-WAY THROUGH this pregnancy, I figured I better get started with weekly updates. I have been taking pictures since I was 13 weeks along, and am just now starting the surveys. I honestly haven't felt much different, besides gaining weight. I'm a lucky one that didn't get sick at all. I mainly just used my positive pregnancy test to stop working out and start eating what I wanted to again. FAIL. That only lasted a couple weeks before I got myself slapped back to reality and decided I didn't want to gain another 45+ pounds again this time. I'm aiming for 30-35 this time, so we'll see how that works out. I started showing a little sooner than I did the first time, but that's common I think. I didn't feel like I actually had a bump, then one day I looked in the mirror and there it was! Ok, enough blabbing, here is the survey!

How far along?: 19 wks
How big is baby?: About 8.5 oz, measuring 6 inches. About the size of an heirloom tomato.
Weight gain?: About 7 pounds. Not too bad, I think I had gained more by this far along last time.
Stretch marks?: Just what is still there from last time, and they're most likely only going to get worse again.
Maternity clothes?: Not so much with shirts yet, but this past week I wore some maternity jeans and they felt more comfortable than my regular jeans. Some of my regular shirts are getting short, but I'm still not filling out maternity tops yet.
Sleep?: Normal. As good as it can be I guess.
Best moment this week?: Feeling little peanut's movements getting stronger.
Food cravings?: Nothing in particular. Depends on the day/hour/minute.
Gender?: Finding out soon! In a week!
Movement?: Yep, I've been feeling the squirming for a couple weeks now.
Belly button?: Still in, but changing shape.
What I miss?: Nothing really.
Labor signs?: No, hopefully not for another 5 months!
What I'm looking forward to?: Our ultrasound scheduled for next Friday! Can't wait to find out if Levi will have a little brother or a little sister! Also excited to go shopping (child free!!!) in St. Cloud with my mom and sister tomorrow. Levi is spending the day with daddy.
Milestone? Feeling movement and being almost half way through.

 Back to the crappy mirror pics! :) This one is actually from last week, but I haven't changed much, and I haven't taken this weeks pic yet. Mostly because this morning I changed from my pj's, into yoga pants and a sweatshirt...

quick post: video!

Soooo...since it's been another 2 weeks since I've posted anything, I thought I would just pop in with a video. It's from a week or 2 ago, but still cute.

Finally getting some pics up! They are mostly from Christmas.

This one is from before Christmas...he likes wearing his earphones and listening to my ipod.
 We made smoothies for a snack this afternoon and he was enjoying his own cup!
 First candy cane! Needless to say he loved it.

 What is all this about?
 Ooooooh fun stuff!
 The wheelbarrow was Paul's when he was a little boy. He refinished it to give to Levi. It's still a little heavy for him, but we'll save it until he gets bigger.
