Nursery Pics!!

The Crib I plan on buying within the next month.....

The shelving unit we bought.....
The dresser.......

The dresser and the chair....

Obviously, the nursery is still a work in progress but we have made a start. I plan on doing white bead board halfway up the wall and painting the top half of the walls a soft teal color. My mom has already purchased the bedding (which was custom made) and I will be sure to post pics once it arrives!! We have a ton of work to do in the nursery but I am excited about the progress made so far! I will be sure to post updates periodically.

16 Week Poll!!

How far along? 16 weeks and 3 days
Total weight gain/loss: Sadly, I am up 6 lbs. I know I am suppose to gain weight but it's still a hard concept to embrace!
Maternity clothes? Yes, I don't know how I would live with out them!
Stretch marks? No, but my skin is stretching!! Hopefully I will be stretch mark free throughout the Pregnancy but I have a feeling I won't be so lucky
Sleep: Some days yes and some days no
Best moment this week: I think I have felt movement but I am not 100% sure. I am still waiting for that definite flutter where there is no doubt it's the baby!
Food cravings: Popsicles is what I crave these days
Gender: Honestly, it's a toss up. Although I am still slightly leaning to a boy
Labor Signs: Nope!
Belly Button in or out? In

3rd Ultrasound!

First off, sorry for slacking on my blog (not that I really think I have an audience out there!). I don't have any real excuse other than laziness. I will do my best in the future to keep up with my blog.
But on to more important stuff.....I had my 3rd ultrasound on Tuesday June 2, 2009. Actually, it was a NT Scan which is basically genetic testing. Unfortunately, Jason was not able to attend this ultrasound with me, he was working in Houston all week. When I got to the appointment I was immediately taken back to the examination room and the ultrasound was underway. I was shocked to see how fast our baby grew since the last ultrasound!! Little baby Jason was moving all around, waving his/her hands for us and even once looking directly into the ultrasound machine......so we got a full facial view!!

After waiting for what seemed like forever, the genetic testing results came back. I have a 1 in 10,000 chance of having a baby with down syndrome and a 1 in 10,000 chance of having a baby with Trisomy 18/13 (I am not really sure what that is) which is wonderful news!! So far so good!!

13 Week Poll!!

How far along? 13 weeks and 3 days. I FINALLY made it to 2nd tri!! Yay!
Total weight gain/loss: I have gained a total of three pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight

Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: I am still sleeping like a baby!
Best moment this week: Making it the the 2nd tri
Movement: Not that I can feel. I had my ultrasound last week and the baby was wiggling like crazy! It's weird that I don't feel any of it going on
Food cravings: I want a pumpkin muffin from Panera Bread, I want a hamburger from Steak-n-Shake, I would like some Italian Ice and I would like some fries smothered in cheese. Basically, nothing that is healthy!
Gender: Still thinking it's a boy although I had a dream this week the baby was a girl
Labor Signs: Nope!
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: A cold beer on a Saturday night
