How TBone got this nickname...

So I found a partial clip of the Seinfeld episode - "The Maid" - where George really wants the nickname TBone. I thought I would share it with you all so you have an idea of why we are calling this little one TBone. No worries we have not decided that this will be the official name. This is one of the Mister's favorite Seinfeld episodes.

17 Weeks Has Come and Almost Gone

I can't believe that this week is almost over. I really don't have much news on the baby front. I am hoping to start feeling some movement soon. TBone is the size of an onion now or the size of most face wash tubes. Yes I am trying to find things that make a little bit more sense to me.

I am finding that I am really enjoying being pregnant. I am so thankful that things have been actually pretty easy for me - though I still have another half to come. I am loving the curves too and not having to worry about having that flat stomach.

I am just so excited for October 9th to get here quickly. I am ready to find out what the baby is and just making this even more real for the Mister and I.

Well I really don't have much else. The sun is shining today and it is beautiful out! I also want to wish my mom a Happy Birthday!!

Rain...Are You Ever Going To Go Away

Don't get me wrong I am thrilled that we are no longer in a very serious drought, actually we aren't in a drought at all now. We had a very unusually raining summer and it looks like the fall could be the same. It has rained for days now, I'm not sure how long really but I do know that I haven't seen the sun in awhile. It has been so gloomy. I used to love the rain. It Kansas it seemed liked it would come and then leave quickly. Maybe I don't remember things correctly but I don't remember rain for days and days.

Then yesterday we had plans to go to the Auburn football game well at least go tailgate and then go sit at a house and watch the game. The chance of rain was 50% - 60% but we were okay with that and were going to have fun anyways. The car was packed, the food and beer (not for me) was in the cooler and we were on our way. We left Atlanta and it was pouring! We got onto the interstate and not 5 minutes from our house we were slowing down. Fortunately that went quickly and was just a stalled car. So we kept on going. Oh but then we hit more traffic and we were at an almost complete stop. We made it 20 miles from our house in an hour and this was with a detour that we took that was suppose to be quicker, however it was also backed up because the road was so flooded. Needless to say we decided that maybe it wasn't meant to be and we turned around, eventually, and went back home.

Of course it ended up being very nice in Auburn for the tailgating and we would have been cozy and comfortable in a house when they finally had their downpour. We were pretty bummed but had our own tailgating party here at home and still enjoyed watching the game, which was a great one I might add. War Eagle!

I don't think the rain is going to be moving on any time soon either. From what the paper said yesterday, "Rain in the Forecast Forever". it could be here for....well, forever. Yes seriously it said that there was rain in the forecast forever. The weather channel says at least 4-5 more days anyways. Ugh.

October 9th will be a big day!

The ultrasound has been scheduled and in three weeks we will officially know whether TBone is a boy or a girl!

It's Another Wonderful Week...16 Now

Okay well I am closer to Week 17 now but I figure I will still give everyone an update. Especially today since I got to see TBone today! We are both doing wonderful and TBone was pretty active today. I did get stuck though by a needle. I wasn't going to get the flu shot but since I am in the schools two days a week around little kids I thought it would be best to go ahead and get it. I hope I don't regret it. The appointment was very short and sweet again. And I didn't have to wait as long! I scheduled my next appointment to see my Dr. for 4 weeks and tomorrow I have to call and schedule the big ultrasound when we will find out the sex. I don't actually get this done with my Dr. but somewhere else where they will do a 3D Ultrasound so I will really have a good picture of the baby.

I also made sure to find out exactly where I was for weight gain. I know it's not that important but I do want to be conscious of what I am gaining. So I started at 138 and today I was at 143. I also am not sure how soon the belly button pops out but mine is not as much of an "inny" as it was.

TBone is the size of a large avocado. The eyebrows, hair and eye lashes are also filling in and the taste buds are forming. I can't wait until I can actually feel the little kicks and punches. It could be any day now even though I am thinking it could still be a few weeks. The weeks go by so quickly though and I can't believe we are almost half way there. I told this to the Mister the other day and I think he was a little shocked. I can't imagine how unreal this is still probably to him. I am sure once he knows the sex and can feel the baby move things will really seem real. I guess even some days I'm not sure if I think it's all that real.

So even though it's not a great picture here is our little TBone. It's a profile of the face and if you look closely you can see the nose and an ear. Notice this baby has a large head, well still pretty small considering the he is just the size of an avocado :)

Labor Day Weekend

I went to Kansas for the weekend to spend with my family and I got to meet my new niece (my only niece) for the first time also. It was a great time and I always enjoy seeing my family and getting to spend time with them even if it isn't for a very long time period.

The great part was seeing Kynslee and she was so precious! She was almost 6 weeks old and still spent most of the time sleeping. There were a few minutes of awake time though. She was so tiny and had the longest arms and legs. My brother is really good with her and she is definitely a very loved little lady. My mom always seemed to be the type who would of course love being a grandma but not really the grandmother type whose life revolves around the grand kids. However now that she is a grandma she really wants to get in as much grand baby time she can get. It's so sweet and it's going to be a lot of fun to have two cousins so close in age.

I have lots of pictures and I am not going to bore you all with too many but here are some of my very adorable niece.

Week 14 and Week 15

Yes I have been quite the slacker with my blogging and I apologize. School has started back up for me and I have been extremely busy. I knew the semester was going to be time consuming I just didn't anticipate how time consuming. Because of this I missed posting about week 14. School is going great though and I spend 2 days in a Pre-K classroom which I am really enjoying. I do know thought that Pre-K is not what I want to be teaching but spending 6 weeks there isn't too bad. The next 6 weeks I will be in a Kindergarten class for 2 days. I don't expect there to be as much play time as there is in Pre-K. I am also taking 4 classes and between them all I have about 30 some projects that will be due this semester. So this is my excuse for not getting on here earlier.

Now from week 14 to week 15 TBone has grown from the size of a lemon to the size of an orange, approximately 4 inches long and 2.5 ounces. TBone's legs are longer than the arms now and he is moving around quite a bit. Unfortunately I haven't felt any movement but it could happen any time now. Oh and TBone is actually urinating inside me by now. How crazy is that? I just think that is crazy and pretty funny.

TBone has his first flight this last weekend to Kansas and he did amazingly well. None of the other passengers could complain about this little one, he was perfect :) (I will post another blog about my trip to Kansas). I had a little bump to show the family but the next time they see me at Christmas I probably actually be looking pregnant and not just like I have been eating way too much. From the scale it appears that I have gained 2-3lbs now.

Today I started cleaning up the guest room to make room for the office equipment that will be moving in there. I am really ready to start decorating the nursery but definitely have some clean out to do before I can get there. I figure the 2 trimester is the best time for this since supposedly the 3rd trimester the fatigue kicks back into high gear.

Well until next time.
