I am a Youth Ministers wife and I work full time as a Chiropractic Assistant. I sell PartyLite as a part time job. I love the product and I love sharing it with others! I am blessed to have the most wonderful husband in the world!
We have been settling in to Mobile and waiting for our house to close so we can finally settle into a home instead of being in the rental. A rental (while nice on our pockets$$$$) just doesn't feel like home especially when your pregnant. But our paperwork was sent to the home office on Saturday and we should close about 10 business days from then. So we are just around the corner and it can't come soon enough! :)
Last week we went on a canoe trip with the middle school age and we had fun! This is a trip they take every summer and they enjoyed the day event! By the end of the day I was tired but it was worth it.
This week we have an appointment on Thursday to try and find out the sex of the baby! YAY!:)
My afternoon sickness is almost gone and my morning sickness has eased up a little.... last week I had one morning that I didn't actually get sick I just felt bad.... so that'simprovement! And I'm not getting sick in the car unless its a really long trip. So it hasn't gone away but I'm still not crossing it out! All I can do is hope :)
Eric bought me my first maternity item.... its a pretty blue dress..... maybe Ill get a belly shot in it soon ( I know some of you have asked for the belly shot). He also bought me a few shirts (not from the maternity store) but that will be great for when the belly gets bigger and I can wear them and the dress even after the baby is born! My mom called today and told me she had bought me a few items as well!
HERE IS THE 17 WEEK UPDATE:
How your baby's growing:Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop
We have been running like crazy around here. We have been here a month and have already had VBS and 2 weeks of camp! YEP that's right only one week of down time....and even that week we made visits out to the camp. This week we have something most every night but it shouldn't be too bad.
I'm hanging in their but still hoping for this "all day" sickness to go away. It has gotten a little better. I can go more than 2 -3 hours without getting sick.... and trust me that's improvement. I still feel queezy through out the day (but that I can handle). We go for an ultrasound July 23 to find out the sex of the baby.... WE CAN'T WAIT!
We should be in our new home in a few weeks... and for that we are so thankful. This new house has everything on my want and dream list (except for a garage but I'm not complaining). We wont be in a subdivision piled on top of each other.... we will have a yard bigger than our yard in Prattville and our house is a little over 2,000 sq ft. So we can grow into it over the years! AND NO CARPET! My allergies are already thanking me. We will also have a big concrete patio outside.... I am so excited. The only thing we have to do when we move in is put up the new privacy fence and paint..... (yes paint, the house was built in 1993 and that wallpaper in the kitchen is out of style lol). Wish us luck (and speed) with the loan office! The faster they work the sooner we get into our own house!
Here is the baby update this week....
How your baby's growing:Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")
