Let your spouse put an ear to your belly -- he might be able to pick up baby's heartbeat (no stethoscope required). Inside the womb, the formation of tiny capillaries is giving baby a healthy pink glow. Baby's also soaking up your antibodies, getting the immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and baby will soon perfect the blink -- perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes.
Where to start- we have been soo busy (maybe too busy) lately!! I'm about 6.5 months pregnant and almost there. I have recently been experiencing braxton hicks contractions (which are like practice contractions). I'm VERY proud of myself for not freaking out and going to the hospital!haha I have developed carpal tunnel and my sicatic nerve is the death of me. And for the 1st time in my life I have FAT ankles. Other than those things I'm okay! And the fact that my MIL told me I've gained too much weight... shes a peach...
Little M is becoming stubborn and will only move when HE wants too, and its driving me nuts. However my hubby and my gram felt him kick last weekend so that was really nice!!
I have a group appt with the ob on tues- I guess what happens is that we get weighed,bp, and do a hb check in private. Then we all go into a room and talk with the ob about concerns etc. The only reason why I'm doing this type of appt is because they are making me take another glucose test. I passed the 1st one (done early cause of PCOS at 16w). This way I can drink the drink while in my group meeting then the lab comes up and draws your blood right there. Sounds easy-- we will see! I pray I pass, the drink isnt bad- kinda like a orange soda with extra sugar.
Today we are going to look for a new car for me, I currently have an 06 rav4. No problems, or recalls (knock on wood). My lease is up and we dont want to continue with toyota just because of everything in the news about them. I think we will get an'10 honda pilot, as long as it drives well. It seats 8, with 3 rows and has a large trunk and has gotten great reviews and has a great trade in value. Fingers crossed.
The weather has been beautiful here and I realize I have missed the sun soo much!! Trying to get outside as much as possible!!
Kate and Courtney- are you on facebook? hehe

Watch what you say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.
Here we are almost 6 months pregnant, OMG!!I had my 22 week appt with the midwife last week and everything is looking good. The baby is measuring 2 weeks ahead of schedule, they are going to keep an eye on it but no one is concerned. This week we are going to our hospital tour and meet all the doctors and midwifes- might make it seem more real. The baby is kicking around on his own time, not when I want him too. Every time he kicks I tell my husband to come over and its too late :( Soon enough he will feel him.
The baby's room is cleaned, painted and ready for a crib. The crib and mattress is currently in my hallway---maybe tonight it will get put together.
My grandfather is in the hospital, his heart is acting up. They upped his meds and he is doing well. Should be released this week, fingers crossed.
My mother called me today to yell at me about facebook. She has never been on facebook and pretty much has no clue about the Internet. I guess her cousin (who I'm friends with on fb) called and they were chatting and fb came up. He said I saw that Jess is pregnant and I saw the u/s picture. Well this sent my mother into a panic. She thinks I'm telling the world everything about me. I told her that only my friends can see my info. Shes a wacko. Anyways- I said by the way. Me and the baby are doing well in case you wanted to know, since you never ask. Then I hung up. I cant deal with her.
People are buying things off the registry and its driving me nuts not knowing whos getting what! haha
We think the baby has a name "Michael Benjamin", however this might change but I'm 99% sure it wont...we will see!!
