Movin' on along... 11-ish weeks to go!
Sunday, January 29, 2012
Thanks to so many Sparkfriends for well-wishes and checking in on me and the baby. We found out it is a boy and we are naming him Tyler Frederick :) It is hard to believe we have just 11 weeks to go until he arrives. In the mean time, we've been doing little things to get ready around the house not just for his arrival but also things we wanted to check off our own "to-do" list before he comes. We have changed 80% of the lighting fixtures (the rest were already nice looking), are getting our TV mounted above the fireplace this week, got the two bedrooms done that needed to have wallpaper taken down and one was turned into the giraffe room and the other is Tyler's room. His theme is dogs, so cute :)
I am getting big. I am only gaining in my belly and have been staying quite active (thank goodness!). I have gained about 15 pounds, which I don't think is awful. I'm actually just to the weight I was at when I started re-Sparking last February... so I hope it won't be terrible coming off. They give you the break-down of what most of the weight is from, so if I can stay under 20-25 I will be happy. So, I don't know how people let themselves get a belly... it is sooo in the way! It is hard to bend down for putting on socks, etc. and it is basically getting impossible to paint my toenails. Guess that just means it is pedicure time :) I am very much looking forward to getting back in non-pregnant clothes. I miss the 90% of clothes in my closet that i can't wear! But, Tyler will probably most definitely be worth it :) It has been a very good pregnancy, and my doctor says my body really loves being pregnant. BP has stayed around 106/68 the whole time and bloodwork continues to be good. We are VERY thankful and feel very blessed.
That being said.. here's a picture of Tyler's little face from our most recent ultrasound, and a picture of me at 26 weeks a week and a half ago! (Dunno why it is coming out sideways!)
Thanks for all your well-wishes, thoughts, and prayers!! Keep 'em coming! I am excited to get back on my weight-loss journey with SP once Ty arrives :)
