It's a ....... BABY!!!

Ha Ha!!! Well we had our ultrasound a few days ago and opted to not find out the sex of the baby. We want it to be a surprise as there are so few of them left in life.

The ultrasound went well and Baby Mabee was VERY active- kicking and moving around. My Mom came down for the ultrasound and she was amazed. She had never been to an ultrasound so it was a great experience for her to see her grandbaby in utero.

I can't believe how big the baby has gotten since the last ultrasound 7 weeks ago. Even though it doens't even weigh a pound yet it has certainly grown a ton!

Once I figure out how to post pictures I will put up the photos. This time we weren't able to record the ultrasound- the tape wouldn't work :( It is unfortuante because this is our last ultrasound. Also our IPS screening ( bloodwork) came back. It is negative so that is a relief. The IPS screening is for chromosonal defects, Downs Syndrome and other things.

Other than that I have still been feeling fantastic! We have painted the nursery so next on to the expensive stuff- furniture!! It is an exciting time and the baby has also been kicking around more the past few days- throughout the entire day. Maybe it's going to be a soccor player- that's what Dan keep saying! In Dan's case we hope it's a golfer! lol

Will post soon :)

Thud, Thud!

Well here I am 18 weeks and 6 days but who's counting! All has been going so great. I have been feeling better than ever so I guess this whole pregnancy thing is agreeing with me! I am lucky that I have not been sick what-so-ever. Whew!

So I have been feeling quite a bit of movement from that little baby inside me. It all started about 2 weeks ago. I was sitting at my desk and felt 3 thuds in my belly! It was great. I knew what it was right away because it was something that I hadn't felt before. Since that day it has only been getting stronger and more often. It is a great feeling I tell ya- nice to know that something is actually going on in there! Dan was able to feel it too which was very exciting.

Well we have our last ultrasound appointment next wed. My Mom is coming down for it so I am looking forward to seeing her and sharing the experience with her and Dan too!

I will post pics next week with the updated photos of Baby Mabee!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the snow- URGH!!!
