16 Week Appointment

Last night Kevin and I went to my 16 week doctor appointment. I really can't believe that 4 months has already gone by, in some ways it has gone by sooo fast and in other ways it feels like years ago that we found out that I was pregnant. At my last appointment (12 weeks) the Dr. Colby said that I had gained 3 pounds, which he said was pretty normal, at this weigh in I was still at that same weight, which surprised both Kevin and I since I really do eat a lot of treats :) which I often get scolded for by Kevin. My tummy is measuring at 16 cm which is normal, since you are supposed to grow about a cm a week. We got to listed to our baby's heartbeat, it was normal at 155 beats per minute. After the heartbeat came the BEST NEWS!!!! We get to go back and find out what our baby is in 2 WEEKS!!!! I CANNOT WAIT!!!! I know that they will probably go by sooo slow but I really wish that the 2 weeks would FLY BY! Ugh the anticipation is going to KILL both Kevin and I. So just a heads up, if you haven't voted for what you think our baby will be you better get your votes in quick because AUGUST 11th is the day!

Anxiety and No Sleep

Okay, all of you Moms... I am in need of some advice. Lately I have been having really bad anxiety at night. I had never had anxiety before I got pregnant, there is nothing worse than anxiety! I hate when I get it, and I dread getting it. I have also not been able to sleep very well. If I am lucky enough to fall asleep early then I wake up after a couple of hours and then can't get back to sleep. Or if I try to go to bed a bit later I have the hardest time getting comfortable and actually falling asleep. Did any of you have problems like these? Do any of you have any tricks, or am I just going to have to suck it up for the next 5 months and get used to it?

Who Voted for What?

Hey everyone! My dear husband is VERY convinced that our baby is a boy... I honestly have NO IDEA. I have heard from a lot of women over the years, including some of you, say that you pretty much knew what you were having. I have not had any feelings like that, yet anyway. But, the entire point of this post is... If you happened to vote on what you think our baby is, will you please leave me a comment and let me know what you voted for? It will put Kevin at ease to know which of you are "on his side" thanks a million! :)

Ridin' In Style

This is the stroller and car seat that we just bought for our baby. Baby Trend Expedition ELX Travel System.

Selling points for Megan: Good safety ratings. The car seat is rated up to 30 pounds, not just 22 like most car seats. Jogging stroller. Easy to fold up and down. BIG storage basket. Jogger rides really smooth and turns very easily. Cute and trendy color that would work and be cute for a baby boy Rikli or a baby girl Rikli. You get a lot for your money with this system. Great ratings from parents who have it. Great recommendations on the system from Jess, who's opinion I always ask for and appreciate! :)

Megan's doubts: Too bright? Too much green?

Selling points for Kevin: The jogger has speakers and you can plug your I POD or phone right in!

Kevin's doubts: NONE. HELLO!!! It has speakers and you can plug your I POD or phone right in!

Let me know what you all think about it!
