Wow Its been a long time

It has come to my attention that I have not updated for quite some time. I cant believe its been over a month. Honestly, I forgot about the blog since I have been so busy. This is for you BN.

Lets see, a lot has happened, we found out that we are having a GIRL!!!!! Her name is Fallon Rose. WE are beyond thrilled to be having a daughter! My Morning sickness is Finally going away. Its finally starting to sink in that we are having a baby after all these years. She moves now, not all the time but usually after I eat she starts wiggling up a storm. Tim is totally in love with the idea of having a little girl to pamper and treat like a princess. I am still working but looks like I will start to slow down a bit because of swelling in my legs which is no biggie. I will probably just see patients in the morning and desk work in the afternoon.

We are still a go for our move to NY in January. I am excited but sad that I cant set up a nursery until After Fallon is born. However, it gives me something to do until I find a new job in NY. I may just take a job as a RN in a hospital, less hours and I can work just 3 twelve hour shifts a week and be home with my daughter the rest. We will see when the time comes.

How far along: 18 weeks and 5 days

Total weight gain: I still havent gained any weight besides a few pounds back from what I lost in the beginning.

How much does baby weigh: about 5-6 ozs

Maternity clothes: I am full on into maternity clothes, I have quite the bump going on. I was fluffy before getting PG so I am sure that has something to do with it.

Stretch marks: I have them already from my first pregnancy (loss)

Sleep: I take a nap during the day and I am in bed by 9pm.

Best moment this week: Starting to buy things we need for our baby

Movement: Here and there, once in a blue moon a kick but mostly little wiggles here and there.

Food cravings: veggie party platters, yes the WHOLE platter haha!!

Belly button in or out: Obviously still an innie

What I miss: Sleeping on my belly.

What I'm looking forward to: WHen she is born!!

Milestone: Making it this far and finding out we are having a daughter!!
