26 down, 14 to go!!!

And the weeks keep going by! I wish that I could say that they have flown by, but this seems to be taking forever to cook this little guy.....I am just so excited to meet him! He is getting so strong. His kicks are becoming more strong and I can even see my stomach moving when he kicks hard enough. It is getting to the point where it is actually a little uncomfortable and not just cute. It will be interesting to see what the next 3 months will be like! I actually think that the baby knows Bubba's voice. When he talks to my belly, Jack starts kicking like crazy! I love it (except when he wakes him up when I am trying to go to sleep)! I have still been feeling pretty good! I have been able to keep up going to the gym and working 30 hours a week. 

We are looking forward to the Holidays. It is our third Thanksgiving away from our families. I can't believe that we have been in Florida this long! I am hosting my very first Thanksgiving this year and I am actually really excited! Hopefully everything turns out delicious! And one month from Thanksgiving, we are on our way home to Utah for Christmas! We are so excited to see our families and hopefully some snow! I hope that all the festivities make the next few weeks of pregnancy go quickly!

I Love Where We Live!!!

Isn't it BEAUTIFUL!!! We have the had the most perfect weather the last few days with Hurricane Sandy in North East. There have been sunny skies, low humidity and it hasn't been over 75F. We went on a walk last night and I actually needed a sweatshirt! That hasn't happened in I don't know how long! It did make me miss home and the true fall weather---with the leaves changing and crunching beneath you feet. But I will take what I can get and these past few days have been the taste of Fall I have been missing.

22 Weeks

As promised...here are some pictures of this baby growing! I feel like I have popped out overnight. I think that now is the time to put away my skinny jeans and move onto leggings! I can't even begin to express how glad I am that they are in style right now!
They are pregnancy life savers. 

I am still feeling pretty good, just a little more tired. But come on! I am growing a little human inside me! That takes work! Some women say that they love being pregnant. I really can't complain. I have had it pretty easy, but I wouldn't say this is the best I have ever felt. It has been a little difficult for me to come to terms with wight gain and the belly growth. What I can say is that I am so excited for what is to come! And that I am trying to enjoy the process of
growing this healthy little boy.

Meet Jack!

Here he is! We had the Anatomy Ultrasound last Friday and everything is looking great! At 21 weeks, he is 10 inches long and now weighs about 12 ounces. He was moving all over the place through the ultrasound. Sometimes...when I am laying in bed at night, I can feel these slight flutters and I am sure that it is him! It makes me smile every time.  I have tried to have Bubba feel him moving, but he claims that he hasn't yet. Give it another few weeks and I am sure he will!

As far as pregnancy goes, I have been feeling great!  I wasn't actually sick through the first trimester. A little nausea, but I never even threw up. I have occasional  headaches and heartburn...just part of the pregnancy I suppose. I haven't kept up going to the gym 5 days a week, but am happy if I can make it 3 times. So far so good!

Belly pictures to come soon...

Finally Starting our Family Blog!!!

After putting this off for years, I have finally decided that now is a good time to start our own personal blog. I never really wanted to while it was just the two of us, but now with Baby Jack on the way, I think that I am ready. Since we live so far away from family and friends, I think that this will be a great way to keep you up to date on the pregnancy process and then...on our new life adventure with Baby Jack. Only 19 weeks away and he will be joining our family. Can't wait to meet him!!!
