Belly Pics

Well I can't believe I'm posting this, but since this is the week I officially can't suck my stomach in anymore, why not document it. Hahaha.
The idea popped in my head at work to take a picture, when again...I have to struggle to get my scrub pants back on. Ha!

11 Weeks

Something to compare it to
The day we found out I was pregnant!
3 weeks 5-6days...something like that
I was very bloated in the picture, plus we just got off the cruise a little over a week before this, so I KNOW its food baby still! LOL

I came to a realization last night. All my scrub pants are about to retire for the next 7 months. I'm growing in size and scrub pants are definitely not stretchy, lol. I don't even have to tie the drawstring to keep them up. I guess its time to move up a size.

People at work at poking at my belly noticing its growing so it's only in time. I still think its just a spare tire around by tummy but others thing differently. I do think its funny I cant suck my stomach in and look 20lbs lighter instantly anymore as of this week, hahahaha. Its only the beginning, welcome to the awesome world of human building.

Sooo, here's a good story, semi creepy.

I am at work tonight and I go into my patients room to put on her sleeping machine for bed. Im standing by her bed getting the Bipap machine ready and this is our conversation between us.

Me: Hey Mattie, Im here to put your sleeping machine on
Patient: Okay, Im ready

(I am now standing there setting up machine)
She randomly asks...

Patient: When are you due?
Me: What?! How did you know I was pregnant?
Patient: Oh sorry, sorry (turns head as if she felt bad)
Me: No, really, I AM did you know? Do I look that chunky already?
Patient: No, I just know
Me: What...seriously...maybe I have a glow?
Patient: No its not a glow. Do you know what your having?
Me: Nooo, not yet
Patient: Do you want to know?
Me: Ummm sure, go ahead and tell me
Patient: Its a girl, and its healthy, everything is going well
Me: Haha, okay. Thats great, Im going to come find you if your right and tell you good job (laughing)
Patient: Alright darlin

((Runs out of room wondering what the hell just happened))

So I go to the nurses station to tell them the story and they didnt even know I was pregnant. They confirmed I dont look like Im showing yet. I know Im chunky/bloated right now, but WOW...that was really weird.

The nurse assistant then went on to tell me that the patient called her into the room because she was hearing little kid voices in her room. Crrraaaaazy!

Anywho, I had to share the story with you was kinda creepy.

Oh Boy

No no no, its not a boy....yet. I feel like it has been since we came across a bargain baby name book at Barnes and Noble last night so Chris was page turning last night before bed. He is on a mission to find a boys name we like. Last night his favorites are Everett & Jameson (we would call him Jimmy like my Dad)
I came across some boy inspiration for nurserys, so I thought I would post them.
Fireman Theme...Chris' idea
More pictures here

Nautical Themes
(well ya know the baby is a nautical baby)

More pictures here

Nothing else is really new other than our baby is considered a fetus now, oh snap! Its growing quickly and my belly looks it too. Even though it just looks extra chunky right now. LOL
I just ate an entire carton of grape tomatoes...and I will probably go back to Publix for more tonight. Tomatoes & chocolate chip pancakes..imagine that craving.

Jameson, Jager, Jack, Daniel, Samual Adam
These are Chris' idea of boy names. LOL See the pattern?

Name Game

So I figured I would throw some names out there and see what you guys think. Chris and I have always talked about what our future kids names would be so we already had an idea.

If its a Boy......
Chris always wanted a III. (UGH- I dont)
Christopher Joseph D the III ---Blah
Then we decided we would call him Trey, a common name for 3rd generation name kids. But now we are kinda over that name. Hes actually willing to consider other names!!! YAY! He wants Michael, I want Charlie. We both totally disagree with eachother so it will be neither. So we are open to boy names.... bring them on.

If its a girl....
Linley Catherine (named after my sisters middle names Margaret Linley & Molly Catherine)
Lillian (insert middle name here)

Shoot, we will probably change our minds again, but for now...these are it.

Houston we have a baby!

We went for our first ultrasound and appointment today and everything went perfect! We started with our ultrasound and saw the baby and heard it heartbeat. The heartbeat was a strong 169. So Chris' fear of twins was confirmed as a NO today. LOL
Our Dr said everything looks great! He moved my due date back 4 days for now. So the new due date is 9/13/09 which puts me at 8.5 weeks. He thinks I am going to have a pretty uneventful pregnancy (Thank God) and he said my possibility for miscarriage went from 20% down to 1% with that ultrasound and heart rate. GOOD NEWS!

The other good news...Im cleared to eat Subway!!!! I dont even have to heat it up! I'm cleared for diet coke in moderation!!

I scheduled my next appointment and ultrasound on my Moms birthday since she will be in Florida week. Im so happy she will get to see the baby in person vs pictures.
