Baylor's Nursery Fabric!

He was not being very cooperative which I was disappointed in because his Nana (Jonathan's mom) went with us. This was her first ultrasound she has been to with us. He dug his head in my bladder the whole time. She saw his legs, foot, spine,and a lot of his heart,but that's about it. I'm telling everyone he is NOT an afternoon baby. He likes his naps! The only 2 pictures we got were one of his "boy' parts again and another foot shot. We will be having our 4D ultrasound in a about a month and a half and maybe we will get in for one more before then to see how much he's changed.

My journal says now that your baby has stretched his legs out a bit, his length is measured from the crown of his head to his heel. The average fetus is now about 9-1/2 inches long and weighs around 9 ounces. A smooth white layer of verniz caseosa, a natural substance that's like baby's first moisturizer, covers your baby's body to protect the skin while living submerged in its watery home.
Also around this time, he starts converting waste into dark and sticky meconium, a "pre-poop" that will probably test your skills as a baby wiper during your first few diaper changes.
That's all that is happening right now with little Baylor! I can defiantly tell he is growing. His kicks and punches are getting stronger and stronger. He still likes to move around anytime from after midnight til early morning. I'm feeling pretty good at half through this pregnancy. It's been a week since I got sick last and I'm getting more energy. It just doesn't last very long.
I'm hoping my fabrics arrive sometime early next week so a decision can be made on the bedding, glider, and the rest of the decorations. Jonathan and I are heading up to Birmingham next Saturday to take our bed in the guest bedroom up to his parent's house. We also have decided to switch the nursery and office because the walls are longer in the office and the closet is bigger. Once we get the bed to B'ham we have a busy week ahead of painting and moving everything from the office to the other room. Then it's time to start painting the nursery! It seems like we have so much to do,but at least it will make the time go by a little faster.
Our next appointment is a week from this Monday. It is our follow up at UAB. This means we'll be making 2 trips to B'ham in 3 days, but we are thrilled to see our sweet Baylor again!

Jonathan and I had a great OB appointment today. When we first got there we went back for our big 20 week ultrasound. The ultrasound lasted a little over 20 minutes. We can't believe how big Baylor has gotten! He was pretty calm this morning as the ultrasound tech did all the measurements of his organs and bones. He is measuring 7 inches long and around 11 ozes.
Once we were done with our U/S we meet with Dr. "D". It was a pretty short appointment. He went over my weight. I have officially gained 2 pds. It is my total weight gain this pregnancy. I'm still down about 10 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight. I was really expecting them to say I gained like 5-7 pounds bc I feel like my belly is getting bigger. My BP was also a little higher today so I have to keep a close watch on it. Dr. "D" wants me to take my BP at home a few times a week and a few times a day if it runs high. Once it gets to a certian number he wants me to call him.
We go back for our 6th month OB appt on August 11th. We will schedule our 4D ultrasound that day for sometime between 28-31 weeks. We also signed up for our Birthing Class today. It starts on August 25th. It is every Tuesday for 5 weeks from 6-8. Our classes will be at our doctor's office. We are both so excited to started. I just can't believe it's time for that already.
We are also getting ready to finalize our nursery plans. I was suppose to get fabric swatches in tomorrow,but it looks like it will be at the end of the week or beginning of next week before they come in. Once I get them in my hands I will be able to decide on the bedding, paint color, and fabric for our glider. I can't wait to put everything together. I will post some pictures on the fabric's as soon as I make a decision.

Actually I was 19 weeks yesterday! My baby journal says Although your baby still weighs less than a pound, he's getting heavier as fat stores increase. Your baby measures about 6 inches this week. Hair appears, on the head and as eyebrows and eyelashes. Even though they won't make their debut until years from now, the permanent teeth buds are developing under the gums, behind the milk teeth (baby teeth) buds. Also, this week, your baby's brain is assigning specific areas to support each of the five senses.
Brace yourself for even more gymnastics. Beyond kicks and stretches, your baby may flip upside down, twist and roll from side to side. Later in pregnancy,though, these movements won't be so dramatic because there will be less space in the uterus.
I'm 19 weeks I'm feeling pretty good. I'm showing more. I had a lot of people at Courtney and Turner's wedding notice and want to feel my bump. That was a lot of fun having people notice now. I've felt him every night so far moving around and poking out my side sometimes. My energy level seems to be getting higher and my nausea has still decreased a lot. I had a rough morning yesterday,but after I got sick a few times I felt great! I'm pretty sure that is how morning sickness is suppose to be. I hope I continue to feel this good!
Jonathan and I go for our OB appointment on Tuesday morning at 9am. We will be getting our anatomy scan that day. I will post some pictures of our growing boy that evening.

Now I'm looking forward to being able to feel him kick on the outside. I know Jonathan is too! Does anyone want to share with me when they felt their first kick on the outside??

So that was my great start to this Tuesday. That was until 12:45 at work I was turning the corner in our hallway and slipped on water from our leaking roof and fell on our scale. I have a big goose egg bruise on the inside of my left knee and another one on the outside of my right knee. Then whelps all up my right leg. I called my doctor's office even though I did not fall on my stomach it was a very hard fall on my side. They had me come in and listen to Baylor's heartbeat and heart sounds. All sounded good so I left there and came straight home. Now I can barely move. I'm having to hold on to the walls or anything around me to walk. I'm in a lot of pain. I just hope I'm back to moving around by tomorrow.
I have a busy week ahead so I have no time to be sick or hurt. I'm in a wedding this weekend for my very close friend, Courtney. I'm so excited for her and I can't wait to start all the wedding festivities. I will take lots of pictures over the weekend to share!

I'm 4 1/2 months pregnant today! My baby journal says the baby has grown to about 5-1/2 inches and weighs around 5-1/2 ounces. If your baby is a boy, his genitals have grown such they they may be visible with an ultrasound; if your baby is a girl, her fully formed fallopian tubes and uterus are now where they should be. Another interesting thing that can be seen on ultrasound: thumb sucking!
Well that little update from our journal is a little behind our schedule since we already now that our precious baby is a BOY and Baylor has already had his picture taken while sucking his thumb! I don't really have a lot of pregnancy updates right now. I've been suffering from nausea again over the last week or so. My "bump" seems to be changing daily (size and/or shape). I guess the last thing or the best is feeling some more random fluttering (at least that's what I think I'm feeling).
I still can't believe that I'm half way done with this pregnancy. Jonathan and I have a lot to get done before Baylor's big arrival!

Daniel Hubbard Vinson!
Our good friends Jeremy and Lauren Vinson welcomed a BEAUTIFUL baby boy, Hubb into the world early yesterday evening. Hubb weighed 9lbs. 11oz! Both Lauren and Hubb are doing great! Jonathan and I are thrilled for them and their families.
I couldn't help,but think what it would be like the day that our sweet Baylor will be born. We can't wait to meet him. We already love him so much and we haven't even met him. I can't even begin to imagine how wonderful of a feeling it will be to holdBaylor in our arms. Only 5 more months from this coming Monday!

When the doctor was complete she said she did not see any indicators of Down's so my risk went from 1 in 84 to 1 in 160. This number is still very high for my age,but at least it doubled and it's going up. They do want to see us again in 4 weeks to take another look at his heart. I was a little worried about this, but I'm thinking they want to do just in case their are any changes between now and then. To say this appointment was stressful would be an understatement. I didn't realize how nervous I was until the night and morning before. I'm just glad it's almost over.
I got a really good "BOY" shot of him. They also gave us a cute foot shot and face shot. I will post these in a few days when our computer is back and running like it should. It crashed with a virus yesterday afternoon and I'm so thankful Jonathan has it back and running. We just have to re-download every program back to it.
Jonathan and I go back for our next OB appt on July 14th. We are also getting another U/S that day. I'm excited Jonathan will get to see how much he has grown. I was shocked when I saw him on Monday. Then our next appt at UAB is scheduled for July 27th.
I do want to ask that everyone say a little prayer for some very good friends of both Jonathan and I. They will be welcoming their little boy, Daniel "Hubb"ard Vinson later this afternoon. Jonathan and Hubb's daddy have been best friends for years and we are so excited to meet this little guy.
