Here we are at 16 weeks... Now we are moving along.
My goodness the first trimester took forever. I am now free from the constant hangover and nausea, however my appetite has still not returned. I basically eat to survive at this point. I had more cravings and "Must have's right now" moments before I was pregnant.
Today I went to the Dr. to check on the heart beat. While the Dr. was checking for the heartbeat with her doppler on my stomach she said "ohh.. baby just kicked my hand". Apparently the baby is doing flips and high kicks in my abdomen as the heartbeat had to be chased with the doppler as the baby moved around. I SWEAR I DIDN"T HAVE THAT NUTELLA I WAS EYEING THAT MORNING.
A few hours later after lunch while driving I felt.. "boom" then another "boom" each on the left and right side of the abdomen. Perhaps she doesn't like my driving.
And that is ALL your going to see : )
I Bought my crib and matching dresser... Here is a peek.
I am thinking of going with the Nursery theme "African Queen"
a'little travel, a'little safari, and a'little queen : )
But knowing myself, this theme could change to Italian Riviera, Hello Hongkong or Sailing across the sea at any moment.
Our daughter's first pet
Kurt and I are all about Low Maintenance Pets
Our daughter's first dog will have batteries
Thinking of a zebra for the floor
A little Trophy for the wall.. I'll be the only one at Toys R Us sawing off a large stuffed lyon's head at home I imagine.
Perhaps I'll play Indian Jones Music as you enter the nursery. Kurt will love that .. haaaa

Here we are at 14 weeks
So our lil babe is sucking her thumb at this point, I am starting to think Kurt and I should start saving up for braces.
My stomach is now large enough to look like I won the Pie eating contest at the county fair.
I can see people who walk by look at my belly now and do a double take, I think they are afraid to say "are you pregnant.. or just fat"
TWO Ultrasounds ONE sex
The first ultrasound tech checking the length of the baby said "Oh I know what the sex is".
I stopped her before she could say another word. " Don't tell me... just write it down.. but are you really sure?" I replied. The tech assured me " I've done this for 30 years.. yes I've seen a few of these"
My thoughts = It must be a boy.
A week later I received another ultrasound to determine the gender.
As Kurt and I looked away from the screen when the tech was searching for the gender bits, she said "Oh yep, I see it, I'll take a photo"
My thoughts = It must be a boy.
The tech wrote it down and then compared her results to my other doctors and she said she totally agreed.
THE BABY'S BITS
See the arrow pointing to something which I guess is a vagina
Do you see the Baby's profile above?
The face is pointing to the left where the white shadow is
After our appointment we took the envelope with the gender written in it to a baker, That evening we had a gender cake
Here is the video we took of our surprise announcement to my parents with the news that we were having a baby. At the end of the video is our baby gender cake announcement. It was so much fun and we were totally surprised as you can see.
