belly pictures!

Alright, you asked for them! (Well, Katie did anyway :) )

So, here's the updated progression to 24 weeks. Holy moly, at this rate they will have to roll me down the street when I hit 9 months, hahaha.

And here's my most recent pic from last night, 26 weeks (I'll take a better one today):

25 week update

Well I am 25 weeks along now - only 15 to go, crazy! Just thought I'd post a quick update on how we're doing...

We had an OB appointment on Monday of this week, and everything is great. Since it's a new Dr she had ordered some more bloodwork etc, and it all came back perfect so that's good. She said everything for our anatomy scan (big ultrasound) was great and measuring perfectly. She did mention that they still were not able to get a great shot of the pallate so we will be going back for another 3-D ultrasound next week just to be sure that everything is fine.

Oh and I asked about my weight gain (um, 9 lbs in 4 weeks, yikes!) which she said was "a little high". So, I need to cut down on sweets. Boo-urns! Luckily my appetite has gone down considerably so I'm not snacking constantly like I was before. Baby G must have been going through a growth spurt or something! :)

Finally, I had ordered some super-cute onesies online for Sean (well for the baby, but I got them because of him). My favourites? "My Dad is a Geek", and "Living proof that geeks get it on". Hahahaha! How could I resist??

Hiccups and other fun stuff

Time for another update at nearly 24 weeks now. Time is just flying, I can hardly believe it.

The baby has been getting hiccups lately, and it's the wildest thing!! I knew babies could get hiccups in utero, but I had no idea how weird they would feel to me. It's like your whole stomach 'jerks' in regular intervals for a few minutes. So crazy. Poor little one, though - I wonder if babies who get hiccups in the womb are more prone to them on the outside? Hmmm...

I've also had my first few Braxton Hicks contractions, and those are also pretty wild. I wasn't sure what it was the first couple of times, but now they are pretty recognizable. I don't get them all the time or anything, in fact I've only had about 5 in the past two weeks. Apparently it's all a part of 'practicing' for the real thing. Too bad the real thing doesn't feel like these - they are a piece of cake! haha

Other than that I am still feeling great! I've been having some back pain lately, especially when getting out of bed in the morning. Sean got me a new office chair, and I'm going to get a body pillow to sleep with to see if that helps. I've also started walking regularly and will start my pre-natal Yoga DVD this week. Fingers crossed - I am such a wimp! I know I need to suck it up soon!

Finally, I was so excited to babysit for Dee last night, because she had a pile of baby clothes for me to go through - it was like Christmas!! I love the little clothes and it sure makes it seem more real when you have these tiny things to look at and imagine a little person wearing.

Here's dear old me (well my belly anyway, aka Baby G's house) at nearly 23 weeks today....
