Happy Memorial Day!

I hope every one has a happy safe weekend!

We Have Babies

Ducks that is. The mom has been here for about a month and a half, but we didn't know that they had hatched until today. There were about 6 or 7 eggs, and I've only seen 3 ducklings. The mom is still sitting on the eggs so I'm sure pretty soon we'll have a lot of little duckies walking around our back yard.
I was able to get a picture, but it's not real great because she started hissing, and I really didn't want to upset her any more.

16 Weeks!

Yay! Another month has passed, and I'm finally beginning to feel those little baby flutters.

We had a sonogram scheduled for the 8th of June, but I got a call on Monday saying that the lady who scheduled my appointment was mistaken and they aren't even open on that day! So my appointment is now set for the 15th.

Since I have a midwife instead of an OB, we go to a place called "Baby Waves" for the sonogram. It's a really neat place. You're allowed to bring up to 5 people, and they take you back to a nice sized room, and there is a big screen that the ultra sound shows up on so everyone can see. Every appointment lasts for 30 minutes, and they give a ton of pictures to you. They do have a 4-D ultrasound but you have to be at least 20 weeks, and I really don't want to have to wait that long to find out weather this baby is a boy or girl. I'm going crazy knowing I have to wait an extra week!

We went camping last night!

Well, kinda. We actually just set up the tent in the backyard. But it was still fun! At least until this morning, when I could hardly move... It's sad when I'm only 25 and I can't move after a night of sleeping outside. Of course it doesn't help that I'm pregnant too!
The boys were really good, and then had a lot of fun looking up at the starts, and watching the bugs fly around the tent.
We're really going camping in June, so I'm glad the test run went well. I'm just going to have to remember to bring along some Tylenol for this old gal!

Whoo Hooo!!

I got my Mother's day present early! A new area rug! The boys and I just went to pick it out this morning. I was so happy when Chris told me what he was planning to get for me, see, he's proof that they actually CAN get it right!!

I'm glad he let me go get it though, because he thinks it's ugly. Of course that was when it was still rolled up, so I think he'll like it once he sees it in the living room. Now if I can just talk him into letting me paint the walls.... Oh well, I think it looks a lot better than it did!

My First Pre-Natal Appointment

I had my first appointment with my midwife Kathy today. We got to hear the heart beat for the first time! It was really fast (almost 200 beats in a minute!), and I asked her if that meant the baby was a girl. She said that she doesn't like to guess just on that, because you really can't tell this early, so we'll have to wait and see! She thinks I'm further along than my LMP (last menstrual period) is telling us because the baby was higher than is should be at 13 weeks, and I'm measuring a little bigger. Sooo.... I went ahead and scheduled my ultrasound for the 8th of June, and it will tell us whether the dates are right, or if we can expect this baby sooner than expected! Oh and then we will know for sure (if the little one cooperates) whether we're having a baby boy, or a baby girl.
