Forgot to mention -

I forgot to mention earlier that we have been talking about donating our stem cells. I have a friend who's wife has cancer and this is part of her therapy, stem cell therapy. not sure what ya'lls take is on this but I would like to know what people really thing about this, not just politicians. It's something that is starting to mean more and more to me, all the "what if they did this for Betty" has now come up. I would like to help save someone else if it's possible.

Ultrasound day --

So, I had my 5th month check in before my big 20 week check up. (yes, 20 weeks is also 5 months but this is an extra special visit) so even though the tech was checking something other than the baby she still needs to make sure everything is going well. so, Bob and I made a deal that we would not find out the sex until the visit he could go to, so I asked Karen to write down the sex and seal the envelope of the card I got and this is what she wrote on the outside.
She was very proud of herself for writing that. Bob still didn't go for it. I may have Rhonda call him, I hear she wore Mark down!
This was the first shot today, the "High five Daddy", it's cute.

The one that says "hand" bob thinks shows the winky and he knows from that, we are having a boy, he will bet me $5 but won't open the envelope.

The baby was talking to us while Karen was doing the ultrasound, the funny thing was it really looked like a puppet.

more leg shots, this one is from the top going down. This kid's got some legs!
HB was 160
and I swear she said weighs 10 oz...

Week 18. Captian's log, will I ever sleep again?

Captains' log, 15th October the natives are getting restless, one is snoring in my face half the night and the other bouncing on my bladder. I have a feeling they are trying to wear me down until I am unwilling to fight back and just order pizza all the time.
Somethings going on that is stopping me from sleeping. Something between 2 and 3:30 am. Could be family stress from that horrible woman sending hate mail or it could be that I am more afraid that I won't wake up if a baby cries. I am not thinking so much the latter only because I know it's not here yet, I don't need to get up yet. Who knows, I even tried a benedryl and it didn't work. I talked to my sister in law tonight on the phone and she said, "you are just like your brother, he can sleep thru anything, it takes over 20 seconds for him to even realize I am shaking him.. I will never have that again :'( I would be ok if I could just sleep, even if I did get up t o "go" I can normally fall back asleep after. Some people say, get up if you can't fall back asleep after 10 minutes, go read or move around for 20 minutes or so then go back to bed. That won't work for me.

Well, I am at my pseudo half way mark this week. I hit #19 in a few short days... I also have an ultrasound tomorrow. I can still see most of my feet, I am out about 3 to 4 inches from where I started.. I used to have great abs, that will happen again one day.. I hope. Gulp....

Week 17 gone......

Week 17 was rough, there was not a lot of sleep. Thankfully it's over.. There was not a lot of action last week (I am going to add 2 blogs to catch up) so really the only big things are lots of upcoming showers. It's really nice to have friends that have newborns and friends that are pregnant at the same time around. It makes a huge difference when things just don't feel right and you get to find out you are what they call normal.
To those of you that help me know I am as close to normal as possible... Thanks
