15 weeks to GO!!!!

Well, today I am 25 weeks...I cannot believe how fast my pregnancy is going. Last week we went for other ultrasound, because on our 18 week ultrasound the placenta was not visualized well. So we got the see CARSON again!!! It is so much fun seeing him on the flat screen! We got some of his stat and I am still in SHOCK!!!

Carson's head is already 6 cm, he weights 1 lb 12 oz and is measuring 9 days early! What a BIG BOY!!! I am still due on June 3rd and everything is progressing very well. I was a little worried about how big he already is but Dr. Klein said some women are on the 6 pound baby track and some are on the 10 pound track...well guess which one I am on...you are right, the 10 POUND TRACK!!!! I think I am getting nervous about how big he is because of gestational diabetes. But I was 9lb 4oz at birth and my momma did not have it...so we will see! I am keeping my fingers crossed that do not have gestational diabetes. In 3 weeks I will be doing my glucose tolerance testing... oh what fun....drinking pure sugar!!!

More pictures of the belly bump and room construction coming soon!!

More to come soon!

You wanted it you got it!!!

The Belly Bump!
17 weeks, Christmas Eve

17 weeks and 1 day, Christmas Day! Kyle is playing with our new camera.

About 19 weeks and 2 days. I look awful in this picture!

21 weeks and 5 days


I love this necklace I have on, but it photographs terrible. It is really pretty gold metalic balls, but they glow when the flash hits it.


Today I am 24 weeks and I am going to see Dr. Klein for another ultrasound and check up. Yes, I feel like a cow, but I have started working out again!! I know you might think that I am crazy but, my energy has finally returned and it makes me feel sooooo much better! After working 12 hours shift, I get a little swollen and exercise is helping to promote circulation and decrease the swelling! Thank goodness! I really do not have any food cravings but if I am in the mood for something I want to right then and there.


Quick story....Last night I came home and my WONDERFUL hubby had done 2 loads of laundry and took the sheet off our bed, washed and dryed them! It was sooooo nice, I love sleeping on clean sheet. I wish I had someone who could wash them everyday! And it is 3 less things I have to do today, and it was such a great help! I am so very thankful to have such a nice husband!


FYI - Carson's room is about to be under construction and I am getting very excited about everything coming together. I am still up in the air if I am going to decorate with animals or fish. The bedding has no theme, it is striped, so I can put anything in the room to decorate! I love it! We ordered the furniture this weekend and it should be here in about 3-4 weeks. So I will post pictures soon of construction and the furniture!!

More to come soon!
