Third month...so far...with baby D

I promise after these updates I will stop with all the baby talk and get back to my super fun, interesting life. This blog will not totally be about baby D, but there will be mentions of the him/her every week or so.

14 WEEKS!!! Yahh
Seeing the doctor every four weeks is the longest wait of my life. I would see the doctor everyday if it meant I would get to see or hear baby D. I see the doctor again for my 16 week appt on June 2nd..and I can't wait. I also get another ultrasound at 16 weeks and maybe..just maybe..they can take a peak and have a better idea of the sex.

I have felt great this month. The morning sickness is all gone. I have some of my energy back. I am more excited than I have been the first couple of months. This month seems like a breeze so far. Although I think I have gained more than the average person at 14 weeks....I have put on 10-12 lbs already. Thats right, and "the books" say to gain 25-35 lbs for your total pregnancy. Well unless I slow down a lot on my weight gain I will be gaining closer to 35 lbs. OH Well...I hope I blow up as big as a house...if that means that baby D is fine in there. ( I hear a lot of ppl say don't listen to the books).

I have to report I am still in my regular jeans though (they are very very snug). I might have to wrap a rubberband around a couple pairs this week, but they are going on. There is no hiding this bump though..it looks as if I have eaten 2 double cheeseburgers an hour!!!! All my shirts are tight and you can tell I am expecting....which is great!!! I can't wait for people to start asking when I am due!

Everyone wants to know what I have picked out for the nursery. I HAVE NO IDEA!!! I browse websites all day long looking a crib sets for boys and girls and nothing has just caught my eye yet?? I want to know your favorite places to shop online for crib sets?? Also baby gear...who would every think this would be so hard....a jogging stoller or a regular stoller??

I have a lot to learn, but so far I am doing ok. I can't wait in the next weeks to start feeling the baby move. I know he/she is movin around in there but I can't wait to finally fill it. And what do people say I am going to have.....A girl! Most people guess a girl...who knows?

That's so exciting! I couldn't wait for my belly to pop out either! It took mine till about 6months to because I was so sick and had lost a bunch of weight. I wore tight shirts as long as I could so my belly would show. I want to know what names you've picked out!

Oh, sweet morning sickness. When a baby is something you want so badly you will take anything that is thrown at you but.........you are so happy to see it go. Congrats on that big step. Enjoy the browsing. Baby shopping is so much fun. I am so happy for you. I had both but I definitely prefered my jogger. Got a lot more use out of it. Congrats again! ..........and
