20 weeks!

Omg… we are half way there! I really cannot believe it. It seems like it has gone by so quickly yet so slow at the same time.

I’m feeling baby move sooo much more now. I love love love it. People at work keep saying just wait until the baby gets bigger because the kicks will hurt and you will get tired of them. I just don’t believe that. I don’t think I could EVER get tired of feeling our little boy!

I catch myself day dreaming a lot lately. I wonder what baby will look like, I wonder if he will love us as much as we love him, I think about how our lives are going to change. These thoughts consume my mind!
I’m feeling really great. I don’t feel as tired anymore. I want to eat …. ALL THE TIME! I can see why people say the 2nd trimester is the best. I feel like I’m eating a lot more but luckily my weight gain to date is 6 lbs!
We had an awesome time in Hawaii. We went whale watching, snorkeling, walked on the beach a lot, rented a car and drove around the island, laid around on the beach and in the hotel room, had some wonderful meals and mostly enjoyed the time together, just the two of us.
Speaking of wonderful meals… Does anyone watch Dog the Bounty Hunter? Some how one night we went to dinner at Benihani (which is a Japanese steak house where they cook in front of you) and because it was just the two of us, we got paired with 5 other people to make a full table of seven. The 5 ppl we got paired with were three of Dog the bounty hunter’s kids and a couple that were “babysitting” them. Haha. I have only seen the show a handful of times, but thought, what a small world…and what a very interesting dinner!

Here’s another question. Now that we know baby monkey is a boy… we want to start our regestiry. When is a good time to start doing that? Is 20 weeks too early? I feel like it might take a while though because everytime I enter a babysrus I’m sooo overwhelmed.

I will leave you with pictures! My ever so growing belly and our 19 week ultrasound of our son

18 weeks

Wow, already to 18 weeks. It’s flying by all too quickly! This week the baby is a size of a sweet potato!! Baby is still moving and grooving around in my belly. 2 nights ago at work, around 4:30 or 5:00 in the morning I felt the biggest kick yet so far. In fact it was so big I jumped a bit. It scared me and got my heart racing! I talked to some of the girls at work that are preggo… one is 30 weeks and she says even though she is so use to feeling baby move some of the kicks she gets catch her off guard! I loved it!! Ang has been calling the baby wiggly lately! She still is jealous that she can’t feel the kicks yet! How early were your partners able to feel baby move??

(excuse our messy bathroom!)

Hanging out

I feel like I have nothing to blog about lately! Everything is going well and I’m feeling great!!

We have our gender ultrasound next Wednesday. I am sooooo looking forward to it! I’m pretty convinced that it’s a baby boy and will be so surprised if it happens to be a girl! Of course either or will be fine by me. I just still think it’s a little guy!

I got a manicure this past weekend and opted for the gel polish. I have had it once before but let me tell you…It’s fabulous. I can wear it to work b/c it isn’t considered acrylic and it lasts almost 3 weeks with out chipping or peeling. It withstands all my hand washing I have to do at work! The down side is that it cost $50.00. Maybe I won’t get in the habit of doing it all the time but it was a nice treat!

Ang is ready to feel the baby move. She gets so jealous every time I tell her I’m feeling movement!

Hawaii is just a week away!! I like the last minute vacation idea because it feels like we just booked it and day is so close! We literally have NO plans for when we are there. We have talked about things we might want to do but decided we will just play it by ear when we are there. I like this idea b/c if we are tired and don’t feel like doing anything… we don’t have to!

I’m so happy yet another winter has passed and I have been here in Arizona. I don’t envy my family and friends with their negative degree weather and wind chills, and tons of snow they got over these past couple weeks! It has been chilly here however! We had the heat on all last week! The one nice thing about it being colder here is I sleep SO much better during the days when I work nights.

Wow… how’s that for a random blog post!

17 weeks

Welp another week has gone by! Hello 17 weeks! I can also say I am 100% sure I’m feeling baby now!! Baby is most active between 10pm and 5am! Which is awesome b/c I work night shift so I get to feel it often. My little bump feels more pronounced this week too! Still no one at work has asked if I’m pregnant, but I guess things are a little to see in scrubs too. But no worries, I know huge and bigger are in my near future!
