19 Weeks

I am now 19 weeks pregnant with Baby Charlie and according to all the baby websites he is growing bigger and gaining more weight. He is now about the size of a Mango measuring a whooping 6 inches and 8 ounces. He has grown a 1/2 inch since last week and has gained almost 3 ounces.

As baby Charlie has grown so have has his new toy collection and his wardrobe. For Christmas family gave Charlie some of his first toys most of which he will not be able to play with for a while but Josh and I are so grateful and we know Charlie will love all his new toys when he gets here in may. I of course love all of his new outfits but Josh isn't nearly as excited about all them.

We hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a Happy New Year. Stay tuned for more updates in the new year!

It's a.........

It is official we have a very stubborn baby boy on the way! It took the ultrasound tech about 10 minutes to get a good look, Charlie did not want to cooperate. Josh and I are very excited and now it is time for us to work on getting the nursery together and buying all the fun stuff that comes along with having a baby. I will upload with the ultrasound pictures later on in the week so you can all see our little man.

We are most excited that he looked healthy, all four chambers of his heart were beating away, he has two kidneys, a full bladder and a full stomach. We even got a good look at him opening and closing his mouth the tech said he was practicing swollowing but I like to think he was yawing. The doctor told us that he is right on track for size so he was comfortable leaving my due date as May 23. Now we just have to wait until then to meet this little man in person. Stay to for more updates.

16 Week Appointment

I had my 16 week appointment today and all is well. Nothing to exciting I got weighted, did a blood pressure check and also got a flu shot. I did get to hear the heartbeat today which was the first time on the Doppler, the last two times I heard it via the ultrasound. My doctor didn't tell me how fast it was today but just hearing it was enough for me to be happy. The most exciting news of all today is that we are finding out if it is a boy or a girl next week. The date is 12/19 for the Big Ultrasound, lets hope that the baby will cooperated and let mom and dad find out. It is the best Christmas present Josh and I could hope for.

Dr. Apt

I have hit the 16 week mark and the baby is the size of an avocado. That apparently is about 4 1/2 inches long and 3 1/2 ounces. We have another doctor's appointment Monday. We are just going to hear the heartbeat and due the usual weight and blood pressure thing so shouldn't be anything to exciting. I am not holding my breath that we will get another surprise ultrasound but a girl can dream. I will post on Monday what the heartbeat is and how everything is doing.
Here is the latest pic of the kid (a.k.a. Charlie/McKenna).
