Belly Shot 22 weeks 5 days

Decided to finally post a belly shot...I guess I am finally starting to look a little pregnant...It is strange I feel like I woke up one morning and POP-there she was a belly...We went to the doctor last week, everything looked good. We were just told she looks a little bigger right now than normal-weighing in at 1.6 pounds but the doctor didn't seem to concerned they are going to wait and see what happens next visit...We are busy trying to get the room ready...We are painting and getting new carpet as well as hanging a ceiling fan and blinds in the room...

Looking into registering for a birthing class, trying to find one that is on the weekend so it is more convenient for us...I can't believe that this is week 24-The start of 6 months...

Sleepless Nights

Completely forgot to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July. Which I can not believe it is already JULY. This means only 5 more months to prepare.But I just found out from David, that I am apparently snoring, although I really understand how because I am just not sleeping as good as I used to. Last night, I had my first official dream of going into labor. I know it is a little early to be thinking this, but it must be my subconscious because I am so worried about the actual process of delivering a baby. Needless to say, I am having a hard time at night-not falling asleep but actually staying asleep. Between the leg cramps, trying to sleep only on my side, and increased temperature I am just really surprised I am finding the time to SNORE. David decided to actually record me because I didn't believe him.When I heard it I was shocked.

We Got The News We Were Praying For

Well, exactly 2 weeks, just as the doctor promised, we got the call. I saw the caller id and immediately picked up the phone. I felt a lot better this time because it was the nurse from the doctor's office calling me not the doctor. She told me our tests came back fine-there was nothing to worry about and they confirmed that we in fact are having a baby girl. What a sigh of relief we both have right now. When she told me the news, I started to cry-happy tears of course:) Now I feel like we can start planning for her arrival. I obviously put everything on hold until we hear our test results.

So this weekend, we are busy prepping the room to be painted. We ordered new carpet and I am trying to decide which baby bedding is better. I ordered one online because I can't find it in the stores, and if I like the Lilac Garden then we will paint the room to match otherwise, I am going to go with the Mulberry. I just really prefer Purple-lavender to Pinks. We also added some things to our registry. It is so funny though how everyone has an opinion. I am going to post the two bedding sets we are debating between.
