Week 22

Don't make fun...these are my bum around pants that Aaron consistently makes fun of. Oh well, I didn't have time to take the image at work before we left for Jamaica!!! Yahoo. So as you can see, baby Katz is growing more and more every week. The doctor said both mom and baby are doing very well and growing at the perfect rate. I've gained 7.5 lbs so far...that WILL NOT last forever. I know I'm to gain about a lb a week in the 3rd trimester and with Jamaica coming up, not being able to drink but eat all I want at an all inclusive resort - YIKES! We're feeling great these days. I'm actually getting more and more hungry during the day lately, but I think that's normal. But if people at work keep stealing my lunch some serious issues are going to arise...haha...but really, 3 times over the past 2 weeks someone has either taken my entire lunch or parts of my lunch. Who would do that? The baby is kicking/moving more and more everyday. Aaron loves to feel it each and every time, which is just so damn cute. But I have to tell's kind of getting a little uncomfortable. The baby sometimes is so low that I swear he's going to make an early appearance - very scary thought. But the doctor said that's normal that he's so low at times. Anyways, things are going great. We've almost finished registering...just need to add a few last things at Babies R Us and determine exactly which stroller we want. But for those of you that are interested we are registered at for the majority, for my diaper bag - which will really end up being my everyday bag/pocketbook and which is restoration hardware for the baby's bedding. I've gotten some stuff at work already and expect to get a bit more, but if some of you moms see something missing that I may need, please let me know. So that's it. I'll write again in 2 weeks and the picture of mom and baby will hopefully be a nice tan one :) Miss you all!

Week 21

Week 21 is going great. I'm still feeling good, but am starting to find sleeping a big uncomfortable. Having to sleep on my sides just isn't as comfortable as it used to be...especially with Herbie still wanting to cuddle in. But how can I resist, he's so damn cute. So I was starting to have really bad chest pains during the night that lasted through mid morning each day. I tried sleeping with a built in bra tank top, and surprise surprise, but it actually helped releive those pains. What else??? OH, the baby is kicking/rolling around more and more everyday. It is such a bizarre, but cool/wonderful feeling. My belly is growing more and more everyday. You may not be able to tell by the image, but I feel like I've doubled in size since last week (which I'm totally ok with). So strange! What else can I tell you...well, we started our registry last week. Hopefully we'll be able to finalize that within the next week or so. I'll let you all know where we registered once it's final. It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. Well, until next week...

Week 19 & 20

I can't believe we're already half way through the pregnancy! Time really flies by when you're having fun :) ha. So as you can see little baby boy Katz is stretching mommy's belly, how cute or scary or strange. And don't poke fun...I felt so silly having someone take this picture...and no, it wasn't Aaron, it was actually a co-worker of mine. Anyways, Aaron, the baby and I are doing great. We're all moved into the house and it's looking gooooood. So much less stressful when you have the help of friends and family. Things went very smoothly and we're slowly unpacking. The house is a bit empty, but we'll fill it in in due time. We also ordered the baby's furniture, so that's super exciting. Now time to start registering. If any of you moms out there have any suggestions on what are MUST have items and what we really don't need, feel free to send along that information. But all in all, I feel GREAT - really...and our next doctor's appt is in 2 weeks! OH, and we are 100% feeling that baby move. Even Aaron felt it. It's still nothing crazy, but it's pretty amazing.
