Baby Update - Ultrasound!

I had my ultrasound today! I am about 20 weeks and 5 days along, with a due date of July the 9th. In the ultrasound the baby measured a little bigger with a due date of July 7. So we will see! We did not find out the gender, we like the suspense lol. Actually, I am planning on trying to have this baby all natural just like I did with little Jimmy and having the surprise of whether it is a girl or a boy is something I can focus on during labor. It gives me something to work towards (you know, besides getting the baby out! hehe). And we really don't care if its a boy or a girl as long as he/she is healthy! Doesn't make a difference to us one way or the other. Though I will admit (have I already?) that I would love to have a girl this time around, Jimmy would be so sweet with a little sister and I am actually itching for some pink! Did I really just say that?? Eeesh. And I have a name in mind for a girl, but no clue for a boy (ok I do like a name for a boy, but Jim is not too excited about it...maybe I can get him to change his mind...)!

Everything seemed to go well, we got to see all 4 chambers of the heart, kidneys, all the arms and legs are accounted for and the nostrils and lips look good =D. The placenta is anterior and it was not too low. With Jimmy it was low so I had to get another ultrasound around 32-34 weeks to make sure I didn't have placenta previa (which I didn't) so it looks good to go this time. Alright, so without further ado, here is our little sweetie:

I had to include a face shot, but I have to be honest, they always creep me out. Too alien-ish for me! But I love that face nonetheless! =)  My next dr. appointment is on the 8th so look for another update and a baby bump pic around then. Have a great night!

Where Have I Been?

I didn't blog last week....I posted my photos on my Cross Creek Farm blog, but didn't post anything here. Well, here is what I have been working on. This is a tutu and a princess hat I made for my best friend's daughter's 3rd birthday. I love how they turned out! Makes me want a little girl, maybe that's what we are having. Only 5 more months until we find out! But anyway, I made the tutu by cutting pieces of tulle about 6 inches by 20" or so and then knotting them onto a piece if 1/2 inch elastic. The tutorial I used can be found here. For the princess hat, I just found a photo of one that I liked on Etsy and followed this tutorial to help me along. I made a couple adjustments to fit my liking. I added a pair of butterfly wings (I found them on clearance while at Jo-Ann's getting the fabric) to the present. And voila! A cute little fairy princess outfit. I think it was a hit. When Jocelyn opened it, she put the hat on right away. It was so cute!

VGNO - Thanks Belly!


So here in Ohio we are getting a bit of a snow storm. Not so much as the east coast, thank the Lord, but enough to make me want to crawl into bed and hibernate until the spring flowers are popping up! So I think a Virtual Girls Night Out is in order, because there is NO WAY I am going out in this snowy, slushy mess. Want to join in? Head over to Ann's to blog hop and meet some new friends!

I just have to share something that happened today that struck me as hilarious. Ok, I am 4 months pregnant, getting a belly now and at lunch time I was peeling a hard boiled egg for little Jimmy. Well, I dropped it and it was about to fall on the floor, but it bounced off my belly and I caught it! It was great, prolly a "had to be there" moment, but I got a kick out of it. Especially since right when I dropped it I was thinking, great, that totally figures, there goes the last egg, etc. but then to my amazement my luck changed. That hardly ever happens lol!

Well, that's it for tonight, I hope everyone is having a nice VGNO and have a great weekend =)
