Also...Baby has decided play time is at 5 in the morning. Which by the way is when I have to get up to potty. And then there I lay...awake...as my child kicks me. Don't get me wrong...I definitely cherish those moments, I just wish baby liked to party in the afternoon instead of in the morning. :)
I am also nervous about tomorrow....I'm afraid to get on the scale! My appetite has DEFINITELY increased since my last visit, and I'm afraid I've put on too much weight! YIKES!! I don't want to put on too much because I don't want it to be too difficult to get off. Oh well....nothing I can do about it at this point I guess. :)
Okay...that's all for now. Back to work I go.
OH...one more thing...please pray for my friend J who lost her mother to cancer this weekend. Her mom was only 59 years old....the entire family is of course devastated. So please keep her in your thoughts and prayers...and J if you happen to read my blog....I Love You!

So me being the planner that I am, have started making lists. Lists about what to pack for the hospital, lists about who to call when I go into labor, so on and so forth. And let me tell you....the who to call when I go into labor list is HUGE. And I don't really even have any family on there because I figured my parents and in-laws can help out on that front! I mean...how do you make that decision on who to call versus who to text versus who really cares when you go into labor?? I mean naturally...I know EVERYONE will want to know....but where do you draw that line? Do you just call immediate family and leave it at that? My biggest fear is that I will offend somebody...and that is the LAST thing that I want to do. I mean I'm sure people don't really care if they get a phone call or a text or find out on Facebook....but how do you limit that list?? Quite frankly it's insane. LOL. I'm thinking I will ask my friends what they want...and perhaps will only put on the CALL list those that will want to come to the hospital to visit or see the baby.
And then there's a whole different list for who to call once baby is actually here! I mean my goodness.....AAAHHHH!!! Can you say overwhelm?!?!?! I might just have to tell people that aren't at the hospital to keep an eye out for Facebook....because if you know me and my iPhone...we're attached at the hip, and I'm sure once baby is cleaned up either myself or Hubby will have that shot on the iPhone that will be posted onto Facebook. Probably should make sure grandparents get to see baby first though...I mean can you imagine...sitting in the waiting room anxiously awaiting the arrival of your grandchild only to click on your phone and see a photo of said child on the Internet before you even get a chance to see them?? LOL! I'd be dead! So...that's where we stand on THAT front.
Pregnancy Classes. We are all signed up. We are taking just about every single class that they offer...minus the ones for second time parents, and the looney's who decide to go drug free. haha! We start those classes the first week of April. I'm so excited to get started. I am so anxious to learn all I can...and watch my husband as he learns. :) Since we didn't go to college together, we have never taken a class together before. This could be interesting. :) Fortunately no tests...I hope!
Well, that's all I have for today. 8 more days until we find out about little Baby T! CAN NOT WAIT to find out of we paint the nursery blue or pink!

WOW!! 17 weeks....it just seems insane! We went to the doctor this past Tuesday, and heard a LOUD and very strong heartbeat. :) It is always so much fun to get to hear the baby. Makes me want to go out and buy one of those devices that you strap to your belly so you can listen to them anytime you want to....I won't....but I really want to. :) ha! Well, nothing really new this week....below are my stats!
HOW FAR ALONG: 17 weeks tomorrow!
TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN/LOSS: As of Tuesday + 5lbs
MATERNITY CLOTHES: Well...I wore a pair of my regular pants that I've been able to wear the past few weeks this week, and by the time I got home I couldn't feel my legs because they were cutting off my circulation! I didn't even make it into the house with the pants on...well I mean I made it into the laundry room. :) I'll be going out this weekend to buy myself some new clothes.
STRETCH MARKS: Nothing new...thank goodness. :)
SLEEP: Well, I did sleep straight through the night twice this week! So, that was a huge accomplishment, but of course the second I said something to someone about it I was up like 8 times the next night. :(
BEST MOMENT LAST WEEK: Getting to hear my little baby's heartbeat again. It is just the most thrilling thing. I cannot wait until the 30th so we can find out if it's a boy or a girl!!
MOVEMENT: None so far...that I'm feeling anyway...anxiously awaiting the moment when I can feel all the squirming around. :)
FOOD CRAVINGS: Cheese Balls. It's Bizarre...I told hubby that I might die in the middle of Sam's if we didn't get the monstrous tub of Cheese Balls.
GENDER: March 30th!! 11:30am :) Although, I have decided to think boy, and hubby thinks girl...we shall see!
LABOR SIGNS: None thank goodness.
BELLY BUTTON IN OR OUT: In
WHAT I MISS: Sleeping through the night more often than I do...or at least if I wake up rolling right over and falling back to sleep. None of this peeing 80 million times throughout the night, or once I wake up not being able to fall back asleep.
WHAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO: MARCH 30 @ 11:30AM!!! I absolutely cannot wait.
MILESTONES: Now I'm into maternity only pants....lord....
