Okay, I know

that I said that I would get the ultrasound pics up- but I have been so busy getting ready for our trip to idaho, that well, I didn't have time- However, we have a name for our son- Xavier (pronounced Zavier) Garel Ross. Well off to finish getting ready not sure when I will post next.


Here are the details

Okay, Its a Boy!!!! and the due date is Oct. 3. It is very exciting to have all some of the bigger details. I will try to get the ultrasound photos up today - but who really can see anything in those. well more later- p.s. feel free to come up with boy names because we only had a girl name.


Today is the day of the ultrasound

I am getting ready to drink my 48oz of water---seems like a lot to try and hold in for an hour while pregnant. I have to start in about 20min and then I have 30 mins to drink it all. Expect an update either this afternoon or tomorrow morning. I am so excited. p.s. I still think that it is a boy!


growing baby

here are a some new baby bump pics!


Okay the doctor's appt. was long and only the beginning of many more appointments. My days off will now be filled with these. I will say that they are informative and pretty darn exciting. So yesterday, here is part 1 of big news, deon and i heard the baby's heartbeat. It was so cool, plus i think the baby ran from the little doppler thing. Because I feel that the baby is always saying stop invading my bubble, get away from me crazy people, reason for this conclusion- everytime someone touches my stomach the baby may kick them but more importantly it seems to move away from wherever there is pressure on the stomach. Anyways, Monday is the day of the ultrasound at 11:00 am- a little sad that deon won't be there, but (we both can never see anything in those pictures anyways) and he has a new job- which i must say is exciting. Tuesday- I have an appointment with my midwife for a complete exam and she works together with my doctor. So very exciting. Oh and by measuring my stomach the guess is right now I am 5 1/2 to 6 months so the baby will be here sooner than later. Totally excited and am really impatient to meet this little one.


Doctor Day

Today is the doctor's appt. Hopefully all is well, I will try to update the blog this afternoon with details, but I will have a ton of phone calls to make sooooo maybe in the morning.


Baby movement

Just thought I would do a brief recap of the events from this week. On July 3rd, I saw the baby move. How exciting is that--- I started telling Deon look I have alien belly- (you know in the movie alien how their bellies move all crazy, that at the time was all I could think of) Anyways, anyone who knows me now realizes that I am obsessed with this for the time being. Everytime I see it move, I get excited and sometimes laugh in crazy outburst because it tickles like crazy. I love seeing it and feeling it and knowing that the baby is there growing strong. Onto the next day- July 4th, we drove to sacramento and it was fabulous, I laid around, napped, and ate. How much more fun can that be? Loved every single minute of it. Then we came home and lit some sparklers and finally went to sleep.(photos later- I haven't transferred them to the computer yet). The rest of this week entails nothing but work and hoping that Monday comes quickly. I can't wait for the the doctor's appointment and getting an ultrasound. Yeah!!!
Well thats about it for now. Until next time.


Monday, Monday, Monday

Okay so this morning I actually had a bit of motivation--- I got Deon to help me move furniture around and take down my desk. This has really helped make some more space- not only can we move the living room around (we might really do that) we can move the couch back a little- the big bonus is that we should be able to fit the crib in our room now. Okay, I am still not done moving things around, mainly trying to clean out and condense my craft area- very hard.
Doctors appointment turned out to be filling out paper work--- so no news--- bummer I know, but I have an appointment next Monday at 1 and I will be getting an ultrasound then too. So next week I should know more. Well off to figure out what is going to be for dinner.
