I have been pregnant for FOUR months! whoa… Insane! I am loving every minute of it.
This week we got a few things for the nursery from Ikea and a quote from Hyojon to redo the closets in our house.
Yesterday we had our third appointment, one where we were supposed to hear the heartbeat for the first time.. but alas our baby was being stubborn AGAIN and she couldn’t isolate the baby’s heartbeat. So we got to see our baby again! 🙂 Oh man that little bugger is so stinking cute. He/she has a huuuge pot belly and a pretty cute little butt. 🙂 The baby was very active again yesterday and when we first took a look at him/her, his/her back was turned to us, but we could see it’s little heart beating. My heart melts every time we get a glimpse of our little one.
After our appointment we went over to my mom’s house and headed to the mall with my sister and Kody. Erik and I went to Pottery Barn Kids and got our baby’s first stuffed animal 🙂
This week our baby is the size of an Avocado
According to babycenter.com… ” Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he’s about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren’t recognizable yet. He’s even started growing toenails. And there’s a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.”
Our 20 week ultrasound where we find out the gender of our baby is scheduled for September 14 at 9:30 am!!!! We will be asking the ultrasound tech to keep the gender a secret and write it down in 2 envelops so that we can take one to the bakery and get a cake made 🙂 The other I will bring to work and have one of my coworkers lock it away in a drawer I can’t get to until we have our gender reveal party. We will only have to wait nine days to find out after our appointment. I think those nine days will be harder than the 20 weeks we will have already have had to wait! But I think it will be worth it 🙂
As you can see my belly is getting bigger and bigger each week 🙂 I can’t wait for the fall weather so that I can wear all my cute new maternity clothes haha 🙂
