28 weeks and some change....

I went to the doc today. He said everything was going great. I'm measuring 27 weeks. I had the rho-gam shot today and some blood drawn. The baby has been moving a lot lately. I've had a little trouble sleeping too but I have been making sure to get some rest during the day.

I also just checked the Chinese gender prediction calendar and it said girl. Plus, on my birthday I got a fortune cookie that said girl on the back of it...So according to the Chinese its going to be a girl. We'll just have to wait and see in February.

I'll try to take some pictures of myself and the progress on the nursery this weekend.

Baby kicks and belly laughs...

Everytime the baby kicks its an earth moving event. I know I'm not that big yet but I swear my whole stomach shifts. The poor kid already needs more room to move around. I also think its funny that whenever I laugh my belly moves up and down a lot. Which typically makes me laugh more when I pay attention to it. Anyway, the leg cramps have gone away for the most part. I think I may have had 1 in the past week.

I'm also gearing up for another trip to KC this weekend for Aaron & Angela's wedding and for Grover's funeral. I dont know how easy Grover's funeral will be for me because I cared a lot for him. I cried a little last night while I was doing the dishes. I was just remembering Halloween & Christmas' from my childhood. We had so much fun! I will definitely miss him!

Worst so far....

So, lately I've been having cramps in my legs at night. OUCH! The baby has also been kicking me in a really ticklish spot a lot. I think the baby tried to impale my liver earlier today.

I'm staring to make progress on the nursery. I still need to buy some fabric for the canvas and some hardware for the crib. Justin and I also still need to buy a new dresser so the baby can have the whole set in its room. We still haven't decided if we're going to put the closet door back on. I guess it depends on what we plan on storing in there.

Justin's dad bought us a camcorder. (thank you!!) It will come in very handy for catching all the cute little things that babies do. Hopefully I will be able to post some of the videos online so everyone can see them. I just have to learn how to use iMovie.

Also, I have finished my baby registry for now. I promise not to look until after the shower(so I can edit it for my next shower). I'm also getting a bassinet from a friend, I haven't seen it yet but its sounds cute.

I can't wait to see everyone again when I come to KC for Aaron's wedding.

I'll post a picture when I find my camera.

Saw the Doc....

Everything is going good. Of course, its not like he did anything to me. The baby's heart sounded good and I'm measuring right on target. Dr. Behm says I've gained 19 lbs but I've only gained 15. He's just mad at me because I have refused every single test he's wanted to do. I have really started showing a lot and people are starting to notice. Justin and I were buying some groceries and the cashier asked when I was due. I hope that doesn't happen much. Its not like it matters. I think I'm going to start lying to people just for the enjoyment of hearing what they have to say. "wow, you're too big for 15 weeks...." hehehe. I have decided that the first stranger that touches my belly is going to get their arm chopped off.
