Baby Girl 3D Ultrasound

Today, Jeff and I went to get a 3D Ultrasound and we got to see the Baby Girl up close! I am 26 weeks this week (that's 6.5 months!) and I have about 3 months to go! Crazy how time is flying. I am feeling pretty good other than I have just started experiencing a little bit of numbness in my right leg- from my knee to my hip and its because the baby is pressing on a nerve that is causing this feeling in my sciatic nerve. I did go to Acupuncture today and she put a bunch of needles in my leg so lets hope that will help the numbness go away. I also have a pregnancy massage on Monday and I hope that will help as well. Other than that, I have been feeling good- eating a lot and trying to get a good amount of sleep every night but because of my belly- its been tough to sleep. They say you shouldn't sleep on your back so I try to sleep on my side and I just got a pregnancy body pillow to help me sleep and not only does it help me sleep- it makes me snore! Jeff calls it my snore pillow! Here is a video of my ultrasound. They recorded the whole thing-- there is no sound but check out baby girl!

Catalina Island 2012, Day 1

Here are a few pics from day 1- it was a very different day weather wise. It started off as a beautiful day in Long beach- where we departed and then was just foggy and chilly the rest of the day. Usually the fog burns off but it hung around all this day. We still had a great time- and thankfully day 2 was just gorgeous!!!

Catalina island 2012

Yesterday, we had a little getaway to Catalina Island where we just relaxed for a day and a half. We went on a mini hike (rose and Amy did a 2 hour hike and I'm sure they will post pics later), rented a golf cart to see other parts of the island, ate and drank and played some banana grams. Good times. Miss you all - here are some pics I took on my phone- will post more later!

From My Loving Brother Roger

This was a video that my brother made for me for my 39th Birthday. It made me cry so much- it was so touching and one of the most thoughtful things anyone has ever done for me. I love you so much Roger. I am a very lucky sister and very proud to be part of this amazing family.

24 week ultrasound

Baby girl is getting big (and yes, we confirmed again it is a girl!) and things are looking good. We had to get another ultrasound done because at our 20 week fetal ultrasound she wasn't sitting the right way and they couldn't get a good reading on her spine. But it was great to see her again and I will find out the official results from my OB by Monday. I will let you know how it goes and I'm definitely getting bigger! Ill take another picture of me at 6 months- can u believe we just have a little more than 3 months to go????
