baby bump picture- 15 weeks

ok folks... here he/she is!!! It is pretty obvious I am pregnant these days. I no longer have any pre-pregnancy clothes that fit.  It is very sad to put them away for the year. Good news is mom and I went to the midwife on Wednesday, and Baby McD has a very strong heart beat.  I still haven't felt movement though.  I still run to the bathroom at least every other day.  BUT I know that means the baby is still alive and well in me.  It's a very comforting thought.  Our next big Sonogram is scheduled for December 13 at 11am.  We should be able to find out the gender if Baby McD cooperates!  ** we are still debating names.

13 weeks down- 27 to go!

Well, there isn't much new to report this week, though I am officially in my second trimester! Nothing has changed. Every weekend I try to get off of the dramamine and see how long I can go without getting sick. I usually end up taking it my noon.  Brushing my teeth is the WORST THING IN THE WORLD right now!  I have never had a strong gag reflex... until now.  Now if my toothbrush even touches my tongue, I end up hugging the toilet.  I had to change my morning schedule to accommodate.  I now brush my teeth before breakfast so that I'm not stuck eating two breakfasts in a 30 minute span.  Dramamine does wonders though.  It's been a great friend for the last 7 weeks.

I need to get Brady to take a belly picture for me. It's getting big... quickly.  Some shirts show it more than others, but it's getting pretty obvious now.  Every morning, I look in the mirror and tell Brady it grew an inch last night.  I still don't feel any movements from the baby, even though my mind likes to play tricks on me.  Anyways I'm on week 13 right now. I'll be 14 weeks on Tuesday. Next Dr appt is Nov 17.  We should find out the sex of the baby right before Christmas.  :-)
