Five Months (Twenty Weeks)

Here I am at twenty weeks...Getting bigger and feeling it! It is so much fun to feel him move around all the time now. My last appointment I had gained 7 pounds! I about died but I have to remember that everything adds up! Trust me though...I am taking advantage of this time and eating lots of shakes and chocolate along with the healthy foods of course!

Burke is so great to me and already worried about my ankles swelling (they are not yet though) so he rubs them practically every night! We have learned that it is important to take advantage of the time we have with just "us" before the baby comes but we love to fantasize what it will be like and ready to be the "three of us!" We are just so excited and grateful to be having a little one soon!

Choosing a name for Baby Bess is so difficult...I don't know how some people just know. This is the name he will be known by for the rest of his life! I am one of those people that wants a name decided before he arrived. We think we have something decided and then the next day it has changed.

For now...we will give it a rest and maybe something will come.

Burke felt Baby move on Sunday 9/20/09
It was fun to see his reaction!!
Baby already has him
wrapped around
his finger :)

Five months (twenty weeks) tomorrow

i was measured the other day

I had to get measure the other day
I know I am short,
but for some reason I thought the last time I measured I was 5 foot 1 inch
I always round up so I tell people I am 5 foot 2 inches (just a small fib)
the other day I was proven wrong
I measured 5 foot 1/4 of an inch (maybe I wasn't standing straight).

...Now I will round up to 5 foot 1 inch.

Proof that there is Something Growing

It's A BOY!
Yesterday we had our ultrasound to make sure everything was going great...not to mention to find out whether our baby is a boy or a girl. It was so exciting to see Him moving around in there...He was seriously moving! I can not believe how active our baby is. The Ultrasound Tech was so great and was just loving every minute of it...she took a ton of pictures. I was trying to figure out what we were having that I was not even looking in the right spot. Burke said "Oh, it is definitely a boy!" I asked, "You can already tell?" Of course he laughed at me because there it was plain as day....a BOY! We already love him so much!
Here are a few pictures for you...sorry the one that announces is not on here.
He constantly had his hands up by his face sucking on his thumb.
He was always hiding from us with he feet straight in the air.
