Pregnancy Update 10/31/2010

Here you go, pictures of my ever growing belly!

The pregnancy is going pretty well at this point. I am still a little bit nauseated at times and am continuing to take the anti-nausea pill everyday. Its a lot better than it was though! Im also still tired and wear out easily, which can contribute to some nausea. Right now we are 23 weeks of 40, which is about 5.5 months. According to What to Expect When You're Expecting, a trimester is 13 weeks, so I will be 6 months at 26 weeks, in roughly 2.5 weeks. The baby is growing right on schedule. At our appointment a few weeks ago he or she was .75 pounds. It seems like every day my belly is bigger when I wake up. Luke agrees. The baby is also very active. Baby bobcat kicks and moves around a lot. Its really exciting when Luke gets to feel the kick.

I have had some cravings, but not for foods I normally crave, like chocolate. I want macaroni and cheese and hamburger and pickles. Weird. I think I could live off mac and cheese. yum!

We do not know the sex of the baby and don't want to find out. We want to be surprised when he or she comes out. Our friends and relatives are not thrilled about this because it puts a kink in their shopping plans, especially Nanny V's. We have some white and yellow for the beginning. I'm sure the shopping will begin as soon as word is out.

In the meantime, keep praying for a healthy baby!

Lukes going to be a great dad!

I know Luke will be a great dad because he loves kids and loves babies! At church he is always finding babies and holding them or playing with them. Here he is with baby Joseph, who is a tank of a kid at almost 5 months! I don't think a service goes by without Luke holding Joseph!

We had our 20 week doctors appointment today and baby bobcat is doing great! It weighs 3/4 of a pound and its measurements are right on track time wise. We got the first onesie a few weeks ago.....yellow with a blue bobcat head embroidered on it! It will be the only baby to come out of a missoula hospital wearing bobcat gear! I've also started feeling bobcat kick and move.
