Movin' and Groovin'

Well, the baby has made its first noticeable movements. Last night, as I was laying in bed, I felt a little flutter. I felt it again this morning, but with all the moving around I do at work, I didn't stay still long enough to feel anything during the day. It is very encouraging to finally get more of a physical evidence of the baby's presence. Jonathan and I are looking forward to our trip to Dallas this weekend. We just needed a weekend to get off by ourselves and relax. I am really looking forward to staying in an awesome hotel, no cleaning on my part required. As a way to help Jon relax, we are going to a Dallas soccer game. Yeah for a three day vacation!

Guessing the Gender

So far, I have had 2 people say that the baby will be a girl and 2 people say a boy. I thought I would open up the floor for any other guesses. I figure that everyone has a 50/50 chance. It is pretty exciting and we are counting down the days. I will have Jonathan take a picture of my tummy soon, for more accurate guessing.

Another Baby Appointment

We had another appointment today. Everything looks really good. I am finally gaining weight, which the doctor was happy about. We got to hear the baby again. This time, not only did we get to hear the heartbeat, but we could hear the baby being very active. Next month, we will get to see the baby again and find out if the baby is a boy or girl. We are really excited about that. My energy level is improving and I will be able to workout lightly. Thank you all for your continued prayers.

Baby Update

Sorry that it has been so long since I have updated the blog with news of our baby. Our last appointment went really well. We got to hear the heartbeat, which was around 170 (very healthy). I have finally been cleared to do light to moderate exercise. I have been walking when I can, but with the weather being so insanely hot, it has been difficult. Today, I started doing Prenatal Yoga. I think that I will really enjoy doing this exercise program as it is challenging and relaxing. There is even a guide to massage for Jonathan to help. I am showing, so more people have been asking me about the pregnancy around work. We go back to the doctor in a couple weeks for our third appointment. Only a few more weeks before we find out if the baby will be a boy or a girl! Oh, and I am also happy to report that I have had no morning sickness for the last two weeks!
