15 Weeks!

So, I'm 15 weeks this week and feeling pretty good. Feeling good makes me nervous though LOL. My next appt isn't until 9/9 so I have to wait until then to get confirmation from Renee. It feels like it's so far away. I think I got used to seeing Renee every week for awhile there!! I've gotten a little bit bigger, too. I have to take some new pictures soon. My cravings for the past few weeks have been salad dressing and smarties. YUM.

One of my friends at work is PG. She's 8 weeks and it's so exciting to have someone to talk baby about at work! Otherwise, I love having my GP friends, which really are a great group of girls. A few days ago my BFPB Jessica (Carter's Mommy, yay!) sent me her doppler in the mail so I can use it since she won't need it for awhile! She's so sweet! Yay! Thanks again Jess ;) Then today I had lunch with Monkey and was a great time! Next weekend I'll be meeting up with Lyse and maybe MrsH for lunch! It's so nice connecting with the GP girls. I wish I could meet everyone! Isn't time you saw the Liberty Bell? LOL

So, the heartbeat has been a little hard to find with the doppler so far. I think the baby is just so active! The first night we couldn't find it at all and I tried not to get worried, but I was bummed about it. Last night we found it for a couple seconds maybe. But earlier tonight we found it for a good 10 seconds!!! It's in the 150s! Woot! I still don't believe this is real. I mean I saw the baby on the multiple u/s I've had and I hear the heartbeat but I still can't believe it. I'm hoping to feel the first movements and kicks soon so I can really let it sink in! I'm very anxious to start the registry and the nursery and all that stuff! I'm going to get some stuff gender neutral and some other stuff gender specific, so some things I won't be able to plan on until after our anatomy scan on the 18th of Sept.
We still are having a hard time with a boys name. I'm pretty sure we decided on a girls name. It would either be Amelia Emily or Maura Emily. I think Maura Emily flows better, but I don't think it matters much because how many times do you really use your middle name? So, we'll see. And if we find out it's a boy...we're going to have to get a name book and try to agree on something.

In other news, my nephew that seems to have gone from 6 months to 6 years old started football! His first game is coming in soon, but here's a pic from practice. He's so cute!

I'm sorry, I suck at blogging!

Yea, so I'm sorry it's taken so long to update...but I honestly didn't think anyone reads my blog. I've gotten a few comments about not I guess I should! So, I had my NT Scan July 28th. The scan itself was awesome! I drank all the water that they told me to, though, like a dumbass. I was seriously going to pee my pants since they were running way behind and we had to wait for a while. When I finally got back there and on the table I couldn't even straighten my legs out. The tech put the wand on my stomach and couldn't even see the baby because my bladder was way TOO full! So, I had to empty it a bit. She got some great pictures at first but couldn't get the measurements she needed because the baby wasn't moving around enough. S/he was just laying there at the bottom on my uterus as if it were a hammock! hehe. So, she made me pee again, and then the little one was moving too much! It was amazing! Finally, she was able to get the measurements and everything was great and with the blood work, the results came back great. We're at the lowest risk for everything at that point! More bloodwork on August 21st. Here's some pics: I haven't taken a recent belly pic, although I promise to get one soon. So, now that I'm 14 weeks I'm feeling much better. I've been feeling very nervous though lately. I can't seem to shake the feeling that something is wrong...I'm hoping its just a natural fear that sets in since my constant reminders that I'm pregnant are pretty much gone. I can eat!! In fact, I eat way too much and everything I want is soooooo bad for me, but I can't help it! I've been eating a lot of cheese, too. And last week I wanted lots of Milky Way's...but this week it's Twix. I haven't wanted much chocolate at all...this is all I want though. I used to eat KitKats or Peppermint Patties all the time but have no desire to eat any chocolate other than what I mentioned. It's pretty weird. Today I want Olive Garden salad (mostly just the dressing). But no one wanted to go with me :0( sniff, sniff.

So, Vince and I have been talking about names recently. And all I can say is I hope this baby is a girl because we don't agree on ANY boys names. Ah!
