Baby Baby

The other night, we convinced Marin to try and listen for the baby's heartbeat, like daddy does.  She was so sweet and layed on my lap with her head on my belly.  I was loving every second.  Such a sweet girl.

Baby boy was pretty quiet that night, so she didn't feel much, but she is very aware that there is a baby in mama's belly, and she daily gives him head butt's and kisses.  My belly was a little squished that night, so it looks pretty flat!

So, Baby Boy updates!  If you have been following the ticker, I will be 27 weeks on Saturday...CRAZY!  This pregnancy has been flying by.  I called yesterday to make a follow up OB appointment, and they are every 2 weeks now instead of monthly...what?!  I guess I still thought I had some time, but apparently, we are going to be having a baby. 

And boy oh boy is he getting strong!  No longer are his kicks always soft and gentle, sometimes he packs quite a punch!  And now I can actually feel appendeges, most likely a foot if he kicks to the side.  Its amazing that I can actually feel my baby boy's foot now. 

And weight.  Oh dear...the weight.  I am forced to relinquish this information as I promised...I am 32 pounds up for 26w4d.  BLAH.  I promise I have been trying to curb my portions, although I haven't been pushing away what I crave, I try to eat less of it.  And I have been exercising: walking, pilates, weights.  I guess it isn't enough.  I don't feel fat, I feel pretty good, and my figure looks pretty decent, I just look...pregnant.  I have to keep telling myself not to give up and curb those portions even more, it's hard when you know you are fighting a losing battle either way.  But, I have stayed the same weight for 4 days, so this is good news?  I'm also trying to make sure I eat something every couple of hours, so I don't get so hungry I eat a whole pie...you all know what I'm talking about ;)

Marin, I think is warming to the idea of having a little brother, although, she most likely has no idea what that will mean for her.  Let's hope she continues to embrace it!

Awe, so sweet! :) I'm sure she will embrace it!

As for your question you left on my blog...Josh designs my headers. He uses Photoshop for all of it. I use Photoshop too, whenever I do any design work. It's a great program!

Samantha don't worry! I bet you look wonderful,( you should post a belly pic, I want to see!). I can't believe how quickly the time has passed I remember you telling us that you were moving and pregnant, so crazy to think you're almost done. I sure do miss you and Marin, she is so darn cute!
