The Votes are In....

It's a boy! So, to the 17 of you who thought we were having a girl sorry, but to the 15 of you who thought boy (I actually voted three times and my friend Ragan voted twice) congratulations on your super-telepathic ability to see within the womb...or just nice job guessing.

Baby is healthy and "on schedule" still for Sept 21 (as much as baby's can be on schedule).

Less than 2 days left to vote

Our ultrasound appointment is Wednesday at 3pm so you have until then to vote if we're having a boy or girl. That will also be Adam's birthday, so we won't leave the blog post completely focused on the baby but we'll definitely let you know what we're having. Happy voting!

Love, Karen

Rx: Sugar?

Dear Dr. Voodoo,

I have the hiccups and they will not go away. What can I do to get rid of them?

Hiccups from Utah

Dear Hiccups from Utah,
You could go to your Primary Care Physician and get a $125 prescription for medication that will increase your progesterone levels, decrease the conductivity of the mylein sheath on your neurons preventing maximum action potential activity while not using up all of your liver's glycerol storage, thus inhibiting your hiccups...or watch this video sent to me from my colleague. Enjoy.

Baby Bellies...

The moment we've all been waiting for...the first pictures of our baby bellies! 17 weeks and 5 days. Only 10 more days until we find out the gender...or as Adam says: 10 more days until we find out we're having a boy!

Ultrasound date!

Still no pics, sorry. That's what I usually look for when I'm looking at other blogs so I must apologize to make another post without one.

We had our 16 week appointment today and we got to hear our little one's heart beat again. It's stronger, louder, and clearer than last time which was fun for us. This is getting a little more real each time! Thanks for the comments on my last post. When I asked my doctor when I should be feeling the baby move he said around 20 weeks for the first one but earlier for future kids. I told him that I had been feeling little flutters and he quickly reassured me that I was probably right. We thought that was funny that he was probably trying to make me not feel bad for not feeling anything yet, but as soon as I told him I thought I already felt something he said that was normal. Why go to the doctor when I have wonderful friends and family who follow my blog and know all the answers?? (Well, they have the machine to hear the heartbeat, so I guess I'll keep going.)

Speaking of machines...our next appointment will be our ultrasound to find out the gender and see what our little one looks like! He would have scheduled it for 20 weeks, but I asked if we could do it one week earlier....

On Wednesday, April 28th... Which is my wonderful husband's 26th birthday! Happy Birthday Adam!

Baby belly!

I finally have a little baby bump! No pictures yet, but we just got a new camera last week, so I'll get Adam to take one soon. I am definitely supposed to be working on my final portfolios and projects right now, but I had to take a moment to change our blog from being all about emotions! I haven't cried since I wrote that post and this week has been wonderful! I am feeling so much more nausea, not as many saltine crackers, and I would say no more mood swings but Adam will have to verify that one! =) I only have to sell 6 more apples for our business to make it to $1000 and so there's no stress for that class anymore. I gave all the apples to a girl in the group to sell the rest.

Adam went skiing all day and had a blast. There was a ton of fresh powder for him and Ragan to play in and afterward they sat in the spa at the gym.

That skinny little baby up in the corner of the blog is really the size of the palm of my hand and weighs 5 oz. It went from being a peach to a fist to an orange to a palm according to a website I've been following. It's supposed to start getting some chub this week! We have our 16 week checkup tomorrow to hear it's little hearbeat again and then in 4 more weeks we'll find out if we need bows and lace or, well, not bows and lace.

This is something I'll probably find out from the doctor, but why not ask other moms such as Kate and Nana Linda: is it about time to be feeling our baby move? I just feel little flutters throughout the day and think it's my digestive system, but sitting here right now I've been feeling it often and am wondering what you think. I can't feel it when I put my hand on my belly, just from the inside.
