Water water everywhere

Totally thirsty all the time and if I drink another glass of water I'll float away. Ack! We start week 20 tomorrow.

Definitely "popped"

Well, it's official - I can't zip up my pants any more. The baby bulge went from hardly a bump to "boom" - hello I'm a belly. Almost overnight, amazing! I need to go by maternity pants right away. Nothing fits that fit last week. What a weird thing!

Week 19: Baby Doc Visit

19 weeks and it's official - it's a boy :) The doctor was making me laugh - he handed us a set of three pictures and said "Here's the skull, you can see the eye sockets here, and here's a foot, and in this third picture, here's the penis. I'll just circle the penis." Then he takes out a pen and does! Hilarious!
The ultrasound looked good - baby is coming along fine and my cervix looks good too. Although they are 99% sure that the miscarriage was due to the fibroid, they are keeping an eye on the cervix "just in case."

Baby stats: heartbeat 144 bpm, 6 inches (give or take) long, and a big ham waving at the sonogram :)

First Movement

Felt the baby move this morning. Felt like someone lightly drumming their fingers on the inside of me. Very odd!
