Here we go!

Well, many of you have asked me to keep you posted on the baby news and other stuff and since I'm no good at making those phone calls to inform you all (or I get sick of telling the same news by the second phone call), I have decided to try to join the blogging world to keep you all informed!  I will try my best to keep up-to-date with this, but I make no promises!!

I guess I will start today with a belly photo taken today at 19 weeks.  Yes, it's getting big, I'm well aware of this!! But you just keep watching... Pretty soon I won't be able to see my toes!!!  Haven't felt the little one move yet, but we had our last ultrasound last Friday and all is going well, except that we have quite a stubborn little one on the way... Yet another reason for me to believe it is a girl (taking after her mommy!).  It took the poor nurse about 30 minutes to get the baby turned enough to get the measurement of the head that she needed!  It's always fun to see the baby on screen!!

Nick got me a new sewing machine for my birthday so I have been working on making lots of stuff for the baby and the baby's room.  I can't wait to get the crib and the rest of the furniture so it starts looking like a nursery and I get to fill it with all sorts of cute stuff!

Well, I guess that's good for now.  I will post photos of the dogs and more when I get a chance!

Love the belly shot - keep them coming!! It's so amazing when you start to feel those flutters and kicks - hands down the best thing about being pregnant!
