There's a baby in there!

  Posted by Picasa

Holy cow, there IS a baby in there!! I had some weird things happen in the past month so my midwife suggested that I do an ultrasound for peace of mind. It was VERY good peice of mind! Baby H was an active little baby. =) So far the baby is 2 inches long and is around 6 grams in weight. =) Darin asked the technician..

"Where's the other 2? Are they hiding behind the big healthy one?"

She humored him by looking all around and not finding the other two. =) He's was certain we were having 3.. 3 boys to be exact. =) A quarter back, reciever and a running back. =)

So yeah, everything's fine and the baby is actually bigger than they thought. They are going to keep our due date at June 1st since it was just a few days off. =) We are extremely happy and can't believe how ACTIVE the baby was. The technician even mentioned that the baby was being more active than normal 9.5 week babies. Oh gosh.. I'm going to be chasing after this kid for the next 18 years. Totally has Darin's genes. I could tell. =)

Okay, back to regularly schedulded blogging!! And might I add that my work just got a new internet system and it's being very selective to who's blogs I get to comment onfiltered=/ So weird. Hopefully it's bloggers fault and not my puter. =/

Numbers time!!

9.6 weeks along in the pregnancy. Only 31.4 weeks left. Um, let's not look at it that way...

6 lbs lost since I've gotten pregnant. Um, not sure how this happened. Because I've been eating like a horse. No joke. Darin even vouched for me at the dr's office. Soooo.. guess this means I need to eat a little more! Um, okay!

-3 days that we've lived in our house. Sniff sniff. We aren't in yet. Who knew it'd take 5 full days to put a new furnace in? We wanted it moved a few feet from where the original was.. so he had to do some new duct work.. must have made the difference? Weird. HOPEFULLY sometime this week. I spent 2 hours Sunday scrubbing the bathroom for us to live in it. YEAH!

1 new refrigerator purchased!! The first appliance I've ever gotten to pick out. I really wanted the freezer on the bottom, but they were like $300 more. No spanks. Maybe next house.

2 significant debts PAID OFF! Um, I never knew how ECSTATIC I would feel with my student loan paid off. And we paid my car off. Next we'll pay Darin's student loan off and we'll be debt free cept for the mortgage! YEAH for a tight-wad hubby who makes me live by a budget! It's really financially freeing after all that hard work. =) Not as fun to shop, but financially freeing none-the-less.

1 fat cat that was found ON THE TABLE at my mother in laws house sitting in a basket. Yeah, taking a siesta thinking he was the table arrangement. Little goober. And the funniest thing is that my mil let him stay there because he looked cute! She is going to be quite the grandma when both baby H's enter the world!

3 weeks until the first gymnastics practice! Goodness I can't believe it's almost here already. Miss my girls, that's for sure!

Okay, I think that's all I got. =)
