29 weeks...

Here is my friday dr appt and belly pic update.

Dr's went great. Great Maw-Maw El came with me and was so excited to hear Maxx's heartbeat. I am only up 1 more lb! Yeah! I was sure it was a lot more since I was sick and eating everything in sight (and not exercising as much.) I was super excited to only see a small increase. Blood pressure was up a little from last visit but not much to be worried about. I must be starting to retain some fluid b/c my rings are getting super tight. I hope it doesn't get too bad over the next two weeks with lots of holiday eating going on. Here is the belly update.

That is about all I have for now. Here is a picture of our house with the snow from last week. How weird was that!

Baby H has a name

We finally decided on a name for our little boy! We always knew what name we wanted but we finally decided on a spelling.

Maxx is a name that we have always liked. Robert is Scott's middle name and my father in law's first name. Hope you like it. I know we do.

3rd Trimester!

Today is the official start of the 3rd trimester. The little man and I hit a nice milestone. I am so excited. Only 3 more months, 91 days until our little boy arrives. Oh, I have so much to do. I started my 2 week dr appointments today. Everything went well. Put on a few lbs but not many. Everything else checked out wonderful. The little guy has been moving around like crazy lately. Scott finally got to watch him kicking through my belly this week. That was neat. Here is an updated picture of the belly.

(Sorry my head is cut off.) Hope everyone is doing well. Love, A

25 weeks!

Yay. I hit 25 weeks today. It feels like time is flying by. Only 15 more weeks until the big day. I had a dr's appointment today and everything went wonderful. Still measuring right on target and weight gain was ZERO pounds from the last appt. I was really excited about that. I am right on track to keep to the goal of only 25-30 pounds in total weight gain. YAY!!!!! Here are todays pictures. I can totally see a growth spurt!

Until next time......

A growing belly.

I am really starting to see (and feel) a weekly difference in the size of this belly. (sorry that I chopped my head off in these pics...I am not that great with the self timer!)

Here is a picture from 22 weeks.

And here is one from 23 weeks (yesterday).

Here is a picture of me and Scott from Halloween. I was a preggo chick from the Rock of Love and Scott was a Chipendale. I thought he should have left the vest off but it was a little chilly that night.

Hope you enjoy! Love, A

The Crib

We finally decided on a crib and ordered it on Friday. We are only getting the crib now since the baby will only have a half of a room for a while. The other furniture we are using are from when Scott and I were babies. My mom and dad just got my old wooden toy box back so I will use that for storage. And we are also using Scott's baby chest of drawers that he used (and that I think was built by his grandfather.) We will have to strip\stain the chest to match the bed but I think it will be perfect. I would much rather use furniture that has meaning behind it than to go buy all new stuff. (Even though the new stuff is really nice.) GranPat, Great Maw-Maw El, and I also went to Babies 'R Us on Friday. WOWZA, I was completely overwhelmed. I am going to have to drag Scott over there in a few weeks (I am sure he is going to love that!) I can't wait to do more shopping.

My 20 week belly!

Here is my belly at mid-way. I think it has grown a lot in the last few weeks. These pics aren't the best. I take them myself with the self-timer. I will try to get Scott to take some better ones eventually.

20 weeks!!!

Baby H and I are doing great. Well, except for the horrible stomach bug that I caught over the weekend. But that is getting better.

We had our 20 week appointment and ultrasound yesterday.

Baby H is doing wonderful, measuring 4 days ahead of schedule and weighing in at 11oz. The baby was kind of shy at first but we were eventually able to tell the gender.........

Baby H is a BOY!!!!! We are so excited. Everything looked perfect during the ultrasound. And I seem to be measuring right on target. Here are a few pics from yesterday.
