Baby M is now the size of a papaya, weighing in at about a pound and is 10.5-11.8".  Sleep cycles are being practiced with Baby M sleeping about 12-14 hrs a day.  A cute little face is fully formed along with eyebrows and eyelashes.  Baby M is able to perceive light and dark as well as hear outside noise.  This baby will be another country music lover.  HAHA.  Music to babies ears are voices, heart beat, and blood circulating.  

I had my doctor appointment today.  Everything is going well.  Heart beat was 152-154.  Doctor was pleased with the sonogram results, weight gain, and heart beat.  My next visit will be the day before Thanksgiving.  I am to have my glucose screening a few days before I go.  I am dreading that.  Hopefully all goes well.

That's all for this week. 

Til next time

Hi everyone, Baby M here with this weeks update.  I am busy, busy, busy growing.  A large banana is how big I am this week, weighing about 12.7 oz and 10.5" long.  My facial features are formed and my hair is growing.  I sometimes practice sucking my thumb and yawning.  I have also being busy practicing swallowing and digesting amniotic fluid.  My taste buds are fully formed and I am begining to taste things momma eats.  That woman sure does like ice cream. Everything in here is fine and I can't wait to meet everybody when I make my debut.

Hope everyone has a great week. 

Til next week.....
Love to all,

20 Weeks!

Half way there.  It's really hard to believe it has been that long.  Not much of an update today.  I have already shared our good news.  We are truly blessed to be expecting a baby!  Jason is excited that we are having a boy. 

Baby M is now the size of a cantaloupe.  He is approximately 6.5" long and weighs 10.6 oz.  Sleep patterns have been established.  Hopefully they are better than his mommy's. 

One more exciting thing I forgot to share is that I have felt some flutters from the little man.  I was caught off guard at first.  But after talking with friends that's what I was feeling.  Hopefully soon I start looking pregnant as well.  I can tell a little bit but if you didn't know you wouldn't think I was pregnant.  Overall everything is going well.  Keep us in your prayers that the last half of the pregnancy goes as well as the first. 

Til next week.....

Sonogram pics 19w2d

Thanks Shannon for making them awesome.

It's a BOY!!

Hi everyone.  Surprise, we are having a boy!  Jason and I went Friday to have our sonogram done.  It was a surprise to everyone.  We didn't share that we were going because it was a surprise for my mom's birthday.  We arrived at CRA in Geramntown and I was nervous.  Not sure why but I was.  That's me though.  We registered and it was long til we were watching our little angel on the screen.  It is so amazing to be able to see the baby.  The tech asked if we wanted to know and of course I was like of course.  Jason was his calm and cool self.   I swear I don't know what would get him excited.  He is very happy he is getting his boy.  I am as well.  It is such a great feeling. 

We took my mom out for supper Saturday night for her birthday.  I invited Jason's mom and Elmer to come along.  This was all party of my plan.  No one was any wiser.  I had ordered a cake with BLUE icing to reveal that's is what were having.  That plan backfired.  We weren't allowed to take the cake in.  Good thing I had a back up plan.  I had copied the sonogram picture and put a blue polka dot border around it and It's a BOY!  I gave them face down to Mom, Bev, and Gran.  Said Jason and I got all the mom's a present.  When they turned them over they were all surprised.  It was great to share that with everyone.  So now we are going to be the proud parent of a little boy in March.  Words can not express how happy we are.

Til Wednesday.....

19 Weeks!

Hi everyone.  This week Baby M is the size of a mango, wieght is approximately half pound and about 6" in length. Neurons have now connected brain and muscles.  Movements are more fluid.  Baby M's kidney are now functioning.  If you were able to see into the baby's mouth Baby M's gums are starting to develop teeth.  Feet measure approximately 1" long. 

As far as I can tell everything is going the way it should.  I still feel good overall.  I do have my moments  though.  Jason and I have cleaned out the closet in the baby's room and are going to start stripping the dresser to refinish it.  We have also decided on a crib.  My next challenge is to get Jason to agree to paint the room.  I have decided on the bedding for both a boy and girl.  Now we just have to wait and see what we are having.

Hope everyone has a good week.  Be back next week with another update.

Love to all,
Jina and Baby M
