Well we had the ultrasound today, and as far as we can tell so far, we're having a baby girl. She gave us a pretty good view, and so the ultrasound tech was confident in letting us know what she thought we were having, so we'll go with that! First of all, it was so AMAZING to see her moving all around. She still seems so tiny in my stomach but when you see her moving around, she seems so big. At one point, we saw her foot and it looked huge, but when the lady measured for us, it's a mere 3.5 cm. Not too big at all. But, those little feet sure like to kick me a lot now. I'm feeling her move more and more and I LOVE it. I find myself just watching my stomach for the little movements I can see. I try to make Michael watch too, but he seems to always turn away right as she kicks. Anyway, here are some of the cutest pictures. I'll post the rest of them in an online album if you care to see, but for those who just think it all looks like an alien (Michael would agree with you), I put the best ones on the main page.

Is is just me or does she look chubby already in this picture?

Here she's resting her hand on her face! SO cute!

Similar to the last one, but her mouth is open!

So I guess there is something new!

First, and foremost, let me say sorry for not doing better on my posting. I guess I just felt like there wasn't a whole lot new to talk about. But, after taking new pictures of me, and looking at the old ones, I realized that YES, there is a difference now! So after many scolding comments and threats about not posting, I finally did it!

I'm now 18 weeks along, and 1 week today from my ultrasound! I'm super excited, although very nervous about the whole drinking a lot and then sitting there and waiting for someone to press on your bladder. I'll be ok though, I know I will! Michael and I have both decided that we want to find out what we're having for sure! Now, the baby just has to cooperate and let us get a look. We want to know because we have to plan...or I guess I have to plan for the baby! Getting all of the things set in order before it's arrival. We got to hear the heartbeat for the first time a few weeks ago, and I have to admit, that's one of the coolest things I've ever heard. That made it all real. Michael was pretty amazed too, and just kept saying "WOW". It was pretty cute.

Other than baby, we've moved into our house practically all of the way. We have a little bit of stuff still at the condo, but since the room it's supposed to go in is full of random boxes, we'll have to wait a little while before we can get everything out of it. The condo is still not sold (another huge story by itself) so we're going to rent it out for a few months until we can get it sold.

Our new house is really coming along. We've had some guys in doing the renovations in the basement kitchen, and putting in the washer/dryer upstairs, so that's coming closer to an end too. We'll all be so happy when that's all finished. I'm trying to get to fully decorating too, and it looks A LOT better than it did, but I'm still not close enough to putting pictures up. Soon though, very soon!

Oh, and I forgot to mention. I'm back at work again, and I'm right back where I left from. I'm back working for Sean again. The girl who replaced me left right before I was supposed to start a new job, so I turned down the other job, and went back there. It's been nice. No new training, or people to get used to. And, they for sure won't fire me before I get my maternity stuff done, so I'm guaranteed to get those benefits. It's been hard to be back only because I'm so tired. I'm going to be a lot earlier now, and still I'm tired, and I'm sure it's only bound to get worse. Oh well, it'll all be worth it in the end! I'll be sure to post again after the ultrasound. Any guesses??
