What a difference just a few weeks makes

This is my christmas time belly... this was just after my 20 week ultrasound where I am about 5 months.
and this is me now! 6 months along... sliding into my third trimester now and feeling her move so much. I hadnt grown at all and then it seemed like she just popped out. I love having a belly now. I love seeing her move. Last night chris and I stared at my stomach for like half an hour because you could see her every move... theres an elbow... oh theres her foot... theres her knee in my belly bottom... she was even high-fiving chris and we like to think trying to hug him... it was like she was trying to push her way out of my belly. She is a strong girl. I cant wait to see her pretty little face. I registered yesterday at babies r us and had so much fun! I dont have any family in utah so my friend katey jensen was gracious enough to lend her experienced mom expertise. (isnt it so funny that her name is my maiden name?) It was a blast and I am officially stoked for this kids room. We move next saturday (anyone in utah with a truck wanna help? haha) and I am dying to get into the new apartment and organize and decorate. Thats all for now... i will let you know when my inny belly button becomes an outie or if i start wetting myself. Being prego is the best. :)

On the mind of the prego lady...

1. I wish Lorelai would be here for Easter... just a couple weeks early. April is a good month baby! Share mommy's birth month. Let's see if I can convince her.

2. I love lost. Chris and I watch it in bed on the lap top and cant wait for the final season to start. We watched 2 episodes of season 5 last night and ate almost an entire jar of salsa with corn chips. Ugh married life... you suit me all too well.

3. My husband rocks. AS IF i need reasons... but here they are anyway: he is taking the hardest semester of school of his life and is still finding time for work, he rubs coco butter on my belly so I dont get stretch marks, and when I asked him when I got to be cute again he rubbed his eyes and said "ugh... now!" and then came and jumped on me for a hug. Once again... being married to chris=the greatest thing on earth.

4. My hips kill me these days due to working 40 hours a week and getting my apt ready for a move in a week and a half. Oh and there's that bowling ball I keep in my uterus that is making my hips spread. I sleep with a pillow under my head, a pillow under my tummy to support it, a pillow between my knees so the hips will stop complaining and a pillow under my arm so I dont roll onto my belly. Overall I have decided that pregnant people should not work or sleep. They should mostly just eat. Oh and lose their hair... yeah its kind of ridiculous how much I have lost in the last 4 weeks. Not balding yet but just give it time.

5. Dont listen to mommy lorelai... being pregnant is the best thing ever. I am sure there are people out there dying to lose their hair and have acid reflux if they get a baby out of it. In the last month I have seen so many miscarriages in my office. My greatest fear now is a stillborn. I see it everyday- I face the reality that this little life is very precious and so very vunerable and could be lost at any moment. So regardless of the woes I am grateful that she is staying put for now. Grateful for every check up where Dr Glenn tells me my baby is heathly and perfect. Grateful to hear her strong heart beat and grateful when she kicks me in the ribs and makes me wanna puke. (She was breech for the first 24 weeks of pregnancy and just flipped it seems... all the kicking is in my lungs haha). Thanks hun... for sticking with me.

6. On a lighter and completely meaningless note- THE BACHELOR!!! This is the first season I have ever watched of it and I am so sadly addicted. I watch it while Chris is at his bishopric meeting... sounds horrible eh? Tenley you have got to be mormon... who outside utah even knows the name tenley?? I wanted Ally, Tenley, and Ella in the top 3 so my hopes are already shot. I swear if Vienna makes it another week I'll puke. Not so much because she is stupid and spoiled and annoying but mostly because I am suspicious that she is a transvestite. Did you hear my claws come out? Yeah so maybe its catty but she looks like a man.

7. The baby room colors: red orange lime green and purple... kinda like the picture above. BRIGHTS. I have a crib and rocking chair. Got it off of KSL- both for 100 bucks! and its pottery barn and practically brand new. I will post pics once we moved and have it all set up. Gotta go get dinner ready... nausea gone=lots of home cooking. Praises and thanks.
