It's a....

BOY!!! He is absolutely perfect, weighing in at 13oz today! We can't wait to meet you Ethan Dale!! :) He is measuring at 20weeks 5 days, but they aren't going to change my due date over that. So I'll stick with my current ticker!

C was sitting at his computer tonight and said "So what size of fruit is the baby this week? You haven't updated me lately!" I usually always tell him what size the baby is and what new developments it is making every week. My ticker just updated today that baby is the size of a mango (don't think I have ever seen one of those LOL!) It made me happy that he is really interested and excited about this baby!! I know we both cannot wait until next Friday to see our little one again!! Praying he/she is healthy!! I'll leave you with a belly pic this week, but no survey!

#8763 why I love my husband

Every night when he comes to bed (later than I do because I get up extremely early) he puts his hand on my belly and "holds" me and the baby. It makes my heart melt :)

9 more days until we found out if baby is a boy or girl!

Stupid cold

I woke up yesterday morning very congested, but hopeful that it wouldn't last. Boy was I wrong! When I woke up today I felt even worse! I have a horrible headache, sinus pressure, and congestion! C told me to just take it easy and lay on the couch all day which is exactly what I have done. I have been extremely bored all day, and there hasn't been anything good on tv! I have to work for the next 3 days (5am-5pm) so I am hoping I feel better when I wake up tomorrow!!

In baby news, we had our monthly appointment on new year's eve and things are still looking good! I have lost 11 pounds so far, but the doctor didn't seem concerned at all. Baby was playing hide and seek while she tried to find the heart beat, but it was nice and strong! Next appointment and big ultrasound is January 29th!!! We are so excited and cannot wait to see our baby again and find out if it is a boy or girl!!
