Out of 12 votes on our blog, 11 were for a girl and they were right. We had our ultrasound this morrnig and everything looks great. She kept crossing her legs so it took awhile to get a good view. Yay! I am so excited to get girly stuff now!
I can't believe that my baby is getting so old and growing up so fast! On Saturday, we spent the day clearing out our extra bedroom and preparing to switch Talmage from his crib to a twin size bed. He slept well on Saturday night but woke up 1 1/2 hours earlier than usual (which is understandable). And he did awesome for his nap yesterday as well. And he's still sleeping right now! I am so proud of him! He watched the whole transition and I think that really helped. We kept asking him where is new bed was and where he was going to sleep now. I guess I didn't have very much faith in him because I never imagined it would go this well. Here are some pictures of his twin bed (BEFORE we put the railings up). And a picture of the beginnings of a nursery!!
Last night I started having hard, long contractions that were pretty painful and frequent. Thankfully, this morning they weren't quite as intense. I was able to be seen by the doctor today and the baby is doing good! I just need to slow down and take a rest for the weekend. I'm pretty much on bedrest or couchrest for the weekend. Thankfully, that's all!! I've been working out everyday for the past few weeks and who knows, that may have contributed to it. Or it may be my 25 lb little boy who I sometimes have to carry, chase around everywhere and lug in and out of the car all the time. Who knows! But, all in all, my body needs a rest! I just hope these contractions go away and stay away until November/December! I'm having my ultrasound on Thursday to see if the length of the cervix has changed, as a result of the contractions. And...we finally, finally will be able to find out the gender then too!
AND...Tomorrow, we're working on organizing our extra bedroom for the baby (or pretty much Jacob is and I'm watching) and transitioning Talmage from crib to a big boy, twin size bed. Wish us luck!!
We don't get to find out the gender today. The doctor just called and said that 18 weeks is too early. Whatever! I'm so bummed. So, I'll be having my ulrasound between 19-20 weeks. But, continue to vote on what we're having!!
Saturday, July 3rd was Jacob's 26th birthday! We had a lot of fun! I even hid his presents like his mom did when he was a kid. We watched one of the DVDs I got him, went swimming in our awesome neighborhood pool, went shopping and out to dinner at Rosa's Mexican Grille (our favorite!). Happy Birthday Jacob! I love you so much!
