18 weeks

So the weekly newsletter says the baby is the size of ...

That's right a bell pepper.

I am so looking forward to meeting you.

Long awaited.

Tonight is going to be a date night. It was going to be an indoor date night, but the family had to change plans due to work schedules. Therefore Keith and I are going out to dinner then to a movie. Either Champs or OBSH (outback steakhouse) and hopefully we are going to see The Proposal tonight.

Update to date night: It started out great. I pick up Keith from work and the words out of his mouth I don't get to hear all that often. "Man hun! You look hot!" I was shocked, jeans and a preggo shirt. So we head off for our date, and ate at Smokey Bones. We will not be returning. We did go see "The Proposal" and will be purchasing that movie the day it comes out. Needless to say it was good.

Baby Update.

Two weeks ago we had a scare. We went in for our 16 week check up. Dr. B is looking to hear the heartbeat and can't find it. He is not freaking out outwardly, but he totally rushed us out of the examine room and down to ultrasound. Thank God I go to a large clinic and they have ultrasounds right on sight. We have to wait almost 30 minutes to get our ultrasound. Keith even went up to the receptionist to find out how long it will be for us. What a guy! We get back there and everything is fine. Our baby's heart beat is 146. Keith asked if she could tell yet what we are having she said not usually until 18 weeks, but she would try. Well our little baby was being shy and would not move to get "the money shot" it showed us its face instead.

In about 4 short weeks we are supposed to find out if we are having a little boy or a little girl. Keith and I are hoping for a little girl. All the silly wives tales are leaning toward a girl. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law are leaning toward a girl. I have had two baby dreams early in my pregnancy that were both boys.

I really want it to be a girl, but more so I really just want the baby to be healthy and happy.

So we started our registries last weekend. We had so much fun. Keith was going around scanning anything and everything. I have found this bedding that I just love at Walmart. I was hoping to find something I loved just as much but at Babies R Us or Target. Target, no such luck. Babies R Us.... we are at the back wall of bedding. Everything, no joke EVERYTHING, has characters of some kind on it. Either flowers and bugs, jungle animals, bears, or disney.... everything. Well I really just want geometric shapes.... stripes, circles, sqaures... that is what I want. I was getting so frustrated that I was ready to give up.

We turn the corner and there on the shelf I see a striped bumper. I look at it further.... on the inside embroidered bugs and flowers.... not exactly what I wanted, but really cute... still love the one at Walmart... until I see the rest of the pieces! Sheets with the colors I am looking for and geometric patterns, a dust ruffle in a solid color and stripes and the piece of resistance (in the best french accent I can muster) the blanket - White with a chocolate brown border, bright pink, light pink, and green circles!!!!! I was stoked... Then Keith says, "Babe what if it's not a girl?" So we look a little more.... SOLD! Bumber in cream and chocolate brown (jungle animals on the inside - my compromise) Green, brown and cream blankets! The pieces even came in blue! So I was sold.

Then I started being a responsible adult and started thinking about everything and weighing it all out in my head. Bumber, Ruffle, One Sheet, One Blanket - Walmart 85.00 Babies R Us - 93.96 - Walmart wins .... Better color choices (nuetrual included) - Babies R Us wins .... More coorinating choices - Babies R Us wins.

Our decision will be made when we know what we are going to have, but I am leaning toward the set at Babies R Us.

Outcast status removed.

It seemed so weird to so many people that Keith and I canceled our cell phones. I was so burnt out on having one due to the over use of it with my last corporate job and we could just not afford one there for a long time. Well now with expecting I was getting a little tired of hearing, "I wish you had a phone - what if something happened." Then I drove over an hour to get to an event that had to be canceled day of and that was the straw that broke the camels back. I got a phone again. Funny thing ... it pretty much sits in my purse and is not used. However thanks to the hubby I know that it does work. He was the first person to call me on it.

I do enjoy my pink phone....

Long Weekends Always Go Too Fast

Three day weekends seem to come and go just as fast as 2 day weekends. Ours was so full this time around it was nice. If only the weather would have panned out.

Friday was nice, we went shopping - both got clothes this time around - had a business lunch, hung out and went out to dinner. Saturday we stayed home except for the comedy show we went to -- I mean church. Sunday we spent the day with Keith's side of the fam. After we watched the BEST WIMBELTON CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH EVER! I do mean EVER! Which made us late for all the 4th of July festivities on the 5th. At least we didn't miss the butt in the cooler.

10 rolls around we need to prepare for Monday's shows. Luckily there was not much to do.

Looking forward

Life is going to be so different in the matter of 5-6 months. I am looking forward to my little bundle of joy. I am looking forward to getting all the little things that you need. I am looking forward to our lives totally changing.

In nearer future - I am looking forward to getting some more clothes that fit. I have - depending on the day - three to five shirt that fit, two pairs of short, one pair of jeans and one pair of capri's. In my huge closet of easily 50 shirts, 15 skirts, 15 pairs of pants, 10 pairs of capris, and 5 pairs of jeans - I do not even have enough clothes right now to wear a different outfit every day! It's a sad state of affairs.

I will be going shopping this weekend.
