Only 3 weeks left!

I know I know I have totally been slacking on this blog. The time is going by so fast and there is so much to do! We finally have the babies room all done and what was supposed to be a simple change of furniture turned into a much bigger project. After looking at the room Jason and his dad decided that we had to paint the room and the hallway and redo the bathroom! It took a few weeks to get it just right but it was totally worth it! The room and bathroom look great.
The baby will be here is just three weeks and we are so excited to meet him! So far the pregnancy has been wonderful so I can only imagine what an amazing baby he will be.

6 months and counting!

I am just over six months pregnant and things are progressing along nicely. The baby is kicking like crazy and my belly seems to get bigger and bigger every day! We have settled on a name but I don't think I will post it just in case we decide to change it at the last minute. Plus everyone seems to have an opinion about those types of things (not that any of you are opinionated.....:)
Next week Joe and Dee Dee are coming out for Thanksgiving, this will be the first time they have seen me with a belly (in person) so it should be a fun visit. My dad is going to help me figure out an easier way to post pictures and stuff so that when the baby comes I will be able to put up more pictures, I've been kind of lame with the whole thing so far.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope to see many of you at Christmas!!!

It's a boy!!!

So we finally found out that we are having a boy. I knew it all along but it was still exciting to hear. The technician was quite impressed with how prominent his little baby parts were! There was no mistaking that we were having a little boy.
We also got back all the tests and baby is very healthy which is quite a relief. It's always nice to hear it from the professionals.

Almost Five Months!!!

So next week will be five months! Half way there! Things have been going great. The baby is doing well and so am I. I've been fighting a small cold but nothing major, it is NOT Swine Flu! My belly is really starting to pop and the baby is starting to move around mostly at night. We still don't know the sex of the baby which is driving everyone crazy! Jason and I think it is a boy but who knows. I have a doctors appointment next Thursday, hopefully we will be able to see what we are having then. My students get into a big debate over it almost every day! All the girls think I am having and girl and all the boys think I am having a boy and they all want me to name the baby after them.
I will post as soon as I know the sex of the baby.

15 weeks!!

So we switched doctors and are very happy with our choice. Our new doctor is so great! She really took her time and listened to what we had to say. What a relief! (For those of you who don't know, we were really unhappy with our last doctor.)
So now on to the good stuff. It turns out that our baby is an advanced breather! The doctor was very surprised to see that the baby is already breathing. She said she had never seen that before. Grandpa Pritt thinks that is just nice doctor talk and Grandpa Pilloud says that he is expecting the baby to call him on phone any day now and say, "Hey what's up Grandpa?" Either way it is good to hear that everything is going well and the baby is healthy. We do have some great pictures of the spine and the babies throwing arms, taken especially for Jason. We still do not yet know what we are having. Jason and I think it is a boy but you never know.

Thanks for the comments!!

Wow! It is so great to hear from all of you! Thanks for the comments about my abs in that first picture. What can I say? Jason is a very good photographer! It doesn't matter anyway that flat stomach is gone! At least I have the picture!
Our next doctors appointment is September 1st hopefully I will have new pictures of the baby to post after that appointment. You never know how good the sonogram pictures are going to turn out.
Thanks for all the support!
PS Kathy, my mom had that black negligee for quite a while after I was born, I still remember it. Personally, I think it is the perfect post baby gift!

Three Months!

So we are officially three months pregnant! I have also decided that I am also out of my first trimester. There are several schools of thought on this, some don't consider the first trimester over until fourteen weeks but I am not one of them. I am ready for this milestone to be over.
I have felt pretty good through the whole pregnancy a little sick here and there but nothing too bad. The trick has been to just keep eating!
We have gotten some pretty cool pictures of the baby. I can't believe how much he/she has grown! It is amazing to see all the little parts develop!
The best part of being pregnant is that everyone is so nice to you!! I went back to school this week and all my fellow co-workers have been so great! They are all super excited for us.
I am going to wait to tell my students but once they know I will hold a baby pool for the kids to guess when they think the baby will come. I will visit the winner at school with the baby before the end of the school year. I am teaching sixth grade this year so I think they will really get into it.
Enjoy the pictures!
