  1. Seventeen Weeks

    17 weeks

    Well, the blog is official now… a little scary, but fun too!  A lot of people have looked at it and that’s pretty cool.  Anyway, seventeen weeks and going strong.  I already wrote about the Dr. appointment – that went well!  Our next one is in four weeks and we’ll be getting an ultrasound and some more blood work (surprise, surprise).  I definitely feel like I’m showing more now – and in fact, today Sean told me that today was the first day he could really tell by looking at me that I’m pregnant.  That made me feel good 🙂  There’s someone else who thinks I look pregnant (other than my mom, who keeps saying that I’ve looked pregnant since we told them we were pregnant)!  Yay 🙂   Still to the average, unknown person I know I just look a little pudgy- but that’s fine by me.

    So, I’m pretty sure I felt the baby moving today.  When I was waking up and laying still I felt a little ‘pop’.  So, then I decided to pester the little guy/gal and poke around my tummy.  Well, after that I got 3 little nudges that I’m pretty sure was the kid saying, “Hey, stop poking me in the head, I was sleeping in here!”  So, that was pretty awesome.

    Oh- the budget!   We worked on that today – it was not that much fun, but it really wasn’t that bad either.   At least we did it together 🙂  And the good news is that it looks like we’re not going to have to move into a shack and use an outhouse.  So, that’s pretty awesome.

    Movies we saw this weekend:

    ‘Your Highness’ – not really that great.   Kind of funny, but not a must see at all. In fact, save your rental fee or just choose a different movie from netflix.

    ‘Source code’ – not really all that great either.  A little interesting, but also kind of annoying in the ‘Groundhog Day’ way.

    ‘Hanna’ – pretty good.  I would recommend. But only if you like action and aren’t bothered by a lot of death and blood and stuff.  But, yes – it was good.

    ’27 Dress’ – old, but it was on TV and it’s really funny!  Great movie!  Predictable, but funny!

    Well, that’s about it for now. More later!


    Our little one is about 5 inches long now (head to rump) and weighs about 5 oz (weighs about the same as a turnip!)
