This week, I am 27 weeks pregnant.
Aaaaannndd….yesterday I got to see the baby!!
A few weeks ago, Jon David told me he wished that he could see Lucy. When we had our 20 week ultrasound to determine the gender, he was so busy trying not to cry (because it was not a boy) that he didn’t pay much attention to the screen. So I decided to surprise him by scheduling a 4D Ultrasound so we could take a peek.
Unlike EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, she was trying to sleep. She had her feet crammed up by her face and kept rubbing her eyes, so it was hard to get a good shot of her face. But what I did see, she looks like Jon David. She weighs just over 2 pounds and even has some hair!!
If you look at the ultrasound photo above, her foot is in the top right, her face is top center, and she’s smiling.
Here are a few other photos (forgive the creepy, alien like quality)
Look at that chicken leg!!
Trying to sleep.
I know it’s a little early to say, but I think she’s going to be absolutely adorable and I can’t wait to meet her!!
If only I didn’t have to give birth in order for her to get here…
Pregnancy wise, I am doing great. Starving most of the time, heartburney a LOT, sleepless a lot of the time, and TIRED starting around late afternoon. But I have tons of energy in the mornings and I’m thankful for that. Jon David and I have been walking to school together in the mornings and it’s nice exercise for me, hopefully I’ll be comfortable enough to continue it for awhile.
I’m also starting to have trouble doing things like tying my shoes. Or bending over. Or getting up after I sit in a low chair.
I have a feeling the next 12 -13 weeks will be interesting.
Lucy kicks all the time — she’s strong!! Last night I sat in bed and watched my stomach ripple back and forth. Which was kind of creepy. Cool, but creepy.
Also…Jon David is officially a second grader.
And I officially spend my days staring heavenward and screaming “WHHHYYYYYY GOD, WHHHHYYYYYY???????????!!!!!!!”
That’s the biggest news for the week, but of course I did other stuff too.
I made Chocolate Chip Marble Bars.
They’re Amish. And yummy.
I made Bubblegum Floats!! Your kids will love them.
Do you love animal crackers? You won’t believe how easy it is to make them yourself!!
Do you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey?

Well, I’d say that’s quite a lot, considering that I’m also raising a human AND growing a human.
I also made lots of dinners and did lots of laundry. I’ve got this new system where I throw one load in every morning, then move it to the dryer and put it away in the afternoon. It’s kind of a pain, but way easier than dealing with 4 loads at once. AND I always put it away since it’s not much.
My laundry hampers are now completely empty!! True story.
I guess that’s about it. Tell me about your week!!
Hope you have a super fabulous weekend!!
