I just don't get it?

I had a doctors appointment this morning and I lost 1 kg from my last appointment 2 weeks ago. What really boggles my mind is that I have been eating like a horse, I just seem to constantly hungry.

So at almost 20 weeks my weight gain is only about 6 lbs, I thought I would be in for it this week because of how much I have been eating, but apparently not. Oh well as long as baby is doing well that is all that matters.

Update on us!

I apologize for not updating this for a while.

Things are going well for the three of us. I am feeling great, although still tired, and I am feeling the baby squirming around, and my belly seems to expanding by the day!!

I recently got a membership to the Edmonton Public Library so I been busy reading what I can before the wee one makes his appearance. I have also started reading to the baby so every time I go to the library I take out a couple of childrens books. So far they have been Robert Munsch and Dr. Seuss books , as they are our favourites, and I try to read at least one a night.

We haven't done to much in terms of preparing for the baby besides what I have posted about alreaady. I finally got my camera back so I will download the pictures of the crib with the bedding, they look so great.

Other than that things have been pretty quiet for us, but we are definatly going to need to get cracking soon I think. We still have to finish cleaning out the basement, I would like to do that before it get to cold so that I Dad can bring over the treadmill that he is storing at his place, move some pieces out of the baby's room and order the a dresser and rocking chair (and these are just the getting started pieces).

I know the suspense is killing you

For those of you who are eager to know the gender of our little one, we are proud to announce that we are having a bouncing baby BOY at this point his name will be Joshua Keith. We are both very excited, but Chris seems to be over the moon happy, he hasn't been able to wipe the grin off of his face!

I hope that you all had wonderful Thanksgiving weekends

Second Ultrasound Picture

My doctor send me for another ultrasound because I was experiencing some more spotting, and he just wanted to make sure that everything is ok. We went for the ultrasound yesterday and baby is doing great, strong heart rate of 156 bpm, and very active (baby was squirming around the whole time and the tech had trouble taking the pictures that she needed).

It was a great chance to see how the baby has grown and changed over the last couple of weeks.

We were really excited to find out about the gender, but baby wasn't wanting to be too cooperative when the tech was doing what she needed to do. Once she was finished she let me go to the bathroom and she went to get Chris. I had a bit of a talk with the baby and shook him/her around a bit and the tech was able to see what she needed to and told us "It's a ..." (sorry, actual results will be released on Monday after we have been able to tell our parents). :)

Anyways here is a picture of the baby at 16 weeks 3 days although that may change because baby was actually measuring 16 weeks 6 days (doctor thought I was measuring a couple of weeks ahead so 3 days I can handle).
