Wes & I stayed up putting Adam's new tricycle together. I found it on clearance for $21 at Wal-Mart today. It has a handle on the back so you can push it like a stroller, but that comes off when he's able to ride by himself. You can also swing the handle underneath so it will rock like a rocking horse. I think he will really enjoy it, and of course it will be passed down to the little one that is moving around inside of me right now!

I'm so glad I started this blog. Now I have something to keep me busy when I can't sleep at night! I am thankful for several good nights of deep sleep in a row, but here I am again in the recliner after midnight!

I got a lot of rest yesterday. Had a nice long nap & got to bed early, but still felt tired all day today. I am totally wiped out but cannot fall asleep. I have felt really queasy most of the day & just feel "off." I walked for an hour with Sarah (whoo hoo!) & got a lot of work done while Adam napped today. I don't know if I was just over-ambitious or what.

I am working in Indianapolis this Sat. (Adam & his "Grams" are joining me :) I stayed up packing tonight b/c if the weather is bad, we'll drive to Maysville (where "Grams" lives) tomorrow (well, actually now it's today...Thurs.) so we'll be north of the snow that is expected here and can drive to Indy on Friday with no problems. Of course after I got all packed, the forecast changed and there may not be anything until Friday night. I guess I'd rather have that happen than NOT be packed & have snow hit us early!

Well, at least my back no longer hurts now that I'm in the recliner. Now if I can just stave off this craving for sweets...

Unlike my last pregnancy, I've had some self-control when it comes to eating this time around. I've only gained 10 lbs. so far, but after Sunday night's potluck dinner and dinner tonight at Taco Bell, it's not looking so good.

I did exercise today. The high school has a walking area around the second level of the gym. My friend, Sarah & I met there and pushed our little guys in their strollers while we took a 45 minute walk. Our plans are to meet up there again tomorrow. I am hoping the weather doesn't stop us. Looks like more snow is heading our way.

I was glancing at some of the books I read just before Adam was born (The Baby Whisperer, etc.) and found a hilarious note that I wrote to myself. It started out, "Sleep Deprived..." It looked like I was writing to help myself decide what to do to help Adam get on a schedule. The handwriting was so messy and shaky. It just cracks me up. Why would I even write that down? I must've been in pretty bad shape! I guess I better laugh it up while I can because it won't be long before I'll be there again!

Cast Your Vote!

One week from tomorrow, we will find out if we are having a boy or a girl. Make sure you vote (on the right hand side of this page) before the poll closes. I am curious to know what everyone thinks! I've been feeling great lately. I felt sick for the first 17 weeks or so. Because of that, I am really appreciating these good days! Hopefully I can keep up with getting pictures posted here regularly.

What a feeling!

I started feeling the baby's movements this week. It was really movin' & groovin' Sunday morning during Bible class. Every day I try to get a picture of my belly & still haven't done so. The pictures turn out better when it is light outside & for some reason I only think of it when it's dark out! I haven't been able to fall asleep before 1 am the past few nights. I could do without the insomnia my pregnancies bring me. Sleeping in the recliner seems to do the trick, so that's where I am right now.

17 weeks

I had a doctor's appt. Monday, and all is well. The baby's heartbeat was 160. This was the second time it was tough finding a heartbeat because the baby was so low. On Feb. 1 we will find out if it is a boy or a girl. I am so excited! Dr. O'Nan is scheduling a C-section for June 1st.
