7 months-84 days to go

Hard to believe we are 7 months pregnant. We go to the dr. tomorrow for our normal check-up and then will continue for check-ups every two weeks till week 36. Not much has changed on the baby front, he is constanly moving (a good thing) and I have been feeling pretty well still. However, I am more tired than I had been in the past few months. We are looking forward to going to the lake this coming holiday and I have even sprung for a maternity suit to catch some rays!

We have narrowed down our home search and will more than likely be putting in an offer this week. Once that is underway, then I feel we can start getting ready to move. I cannot wait to get the baby's room put together. I am anxious for the crib to be setup and clothing to be hung in the closet. I guess this is what they call nesting!

Once Devon and I make it through the move the baby will be the home stretch! I am really quite lucky how well I feel and while my appetite is increased I am still able to get out and walk just not as far and not as fast.

Got a very nice glider this weekend at a garage sale and have been practicing my baby rocking far he seems to like it.

If anything new happens at the dr, we will keep you posted.

After the Wedding

All went so well this past weekend and we could not have been more pleased! We are so happy to be married and now able to focus 100% on our new baby which by now is......Baby BOY Mau.

We did announce at the wedding we are having a boy- very happy and excited for little Devon to join us in 91 days!

Lots of planning and excitement to come with our little one soon.

Almost 27 weeks

We will be 27 weeks on Saturday but, given that is our wedding day-so probably won't have time to post! We are doing great, looking forward to the wedding and seeing our family and friends.

The baby is officially showing all the time, not much you can do to hide a pregnancy when you are over 6.5 months. Baby Mau is also a moving fiend-however the schedule matches mine for the most part. We have only had one night of early wakeup at 245am the baby decided that was enough sleep and we were up for the day. Good thing the sun rises early-we were out walking at 445 that morning!

We will have some more pictures after the weekend to update the baby bump and family.

25 weeks

We are now 25 weeks and feeling very good. Nothing new to report we go back to the dr. this week for our checkup and our GD test. We are believing nothing will come of it and I will pass with flying colors. Baby Mau is kicking constantly and consistenly and pretty much has a pattern of movement that includes "bedtime kicking shows" that allows Devon to feel the baby moving all the time.

I was able to see some friends this past weekend in IL and spend time with my family it was nice to get away but, the energy I am used to having is less andd I feel a little more tired after long trips. I was able to visit with another friend who is due about 3 days ahead of me-however it is Kari's third and my first. She look pregnant and I just just look a little pudgy!

I am looking forward to the next few weeks, wedding in 13 days and as long as the dress still fits (and it does!!) we are good to go!

6 months-can you believe it?

I can't believe we are 6 months- it is hard to believe we will be married in 3 weeks but to think the little one will join in us a mere 3 months is crazy. We have been busy this week and the baby has been moving around, everywhere. I have had several kicks where I was sitting peacefully and my hand resting on my belly and it suddenly jumped due to kicks, strong one whatever it is.

He/She was made my walking more labored and sometime harder in the heat than I have ever had but, I have still been out walking 3-5 times a week. I try hard to at least get out least 15-20 minutes per time.

Looking forward to visiting my family in Princeton this weekend and will be anxious to see everyone..

I have included a new picture of the baby belly, I am not big on showing any part of this on my growing belly but, I will indulge the public!
