Everything is going well with the pregnancy! I continue to feel healthy and happy! Each day, I feel more and more movement...this baby is active! Greg has enjoyed being able to finally feel activity. Whenever he feels movement he comments, "I wonder what he's doing". Greg, along with his dad and brother, have been working hard to remodel our bathroom. We have completely gutted everything(and I mean everything) in the bathroom. It should create a wonderful place for our sweet baby to bath. We often wonder what we talked and thought about before we got pregnant--we are just so excited for this baby's arrival. The nursery will be our next project, much simpler than a bathroom--I hope! Recently, we enjoyed a short visit in Marion with my sister Jill. We went to Babies 'R Us and registered for the things I will eventually need. We had a blast, although, it was very exhausting(so many choices)! Greg and I have finally found 2 names we love and can agree on! I have a follow-up visit with the doc tomorrow, so I will update soon.
How Our Baby's Growing
Head to heels, our baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
I'll take some turkey and stuffing with my rutabaga, please!
