We're having a...

Baby!  Surprise, surprise.. I know, that's the point!  We're waiting until baby is born to know if we're having a boy or girl.  We all want a healthy baby, bottom line... but I can't help but admit I'd like a little pink in my life (eventually)!  I have a good feeling that with all of the pregnancies I know of (just in October alone) someone is bound to bring pink into this world!  I've added a poll on the right side of my blog so you can vote on whether you think we're having a boy or girl!

Here are some pictures from our ultrasound!  The technician said Pumpkin has long, skinny feet!
Baby Pumpkin's profile... this shot was VERY hard for the technician to get because baby kept looking directly at the ultrasound wand.

The 4-chamber heart... my favorite part of the 20 week ultrasound!  A still picture doesn't do it justice... I just love looking at the little heart beat on and on!
I talked to the doctor because due to morning sickness (and a little bit due to chasing a toddler) I lost weight in my 1st trimester.  I was worried I am not gaining enough (compared to Jack where I started gaining weight from the moment the extra line showed up on the test).  She said she'd like to see me gain a pound a week from here on out and that I'm not far behind the average weight gain they like to see at 20 weeks.  See below for my latest "belly shot"... I've also included a picture of me around the same time when I was pregnant with Jack.

21 weeks 1 day (June 16, 2011)... excuse my exhaustion, I caught Jack's strep throat.
Approximately 22 weeks, February 2009


  1. You look so beautiful! I think I'm catching baby fever... :-)

  2. Thanks Maggie! You are too sweet! Good luck with baby fever, I hear its contagious!
