Eighteen Weeks

I am eighteen weeks (and eleven pounds) pregnant. I feel huge and Jory says I don't even look pregnant, so I guess it depends on your perspective! We have our sonogram Monday and I am very excited. Four weeks is a long time to go between hearing that heartbeat! I haven't felt the baby move yet - I am awaiting the 'flutter', but I am constantly aware of Little One now. I notice my hand resting on my stomach more and Little One's existence permeates my life - Finally!

We spent a WONDERFUL weekend in Oklahoma and took a scenic drive into Arkansas. We have lots of pictures to post this week. I made a banana cheesecake for the weekend and we cooked out, relaxed and talked about Little One and politics. We also took Baby's First Hike. We have avoided hiking since I got pregnant and we realized this weekend how much we miss it. It was beautiful.

In Major Events that Occurred During Pregnancy, Washington Mutual no longer exists and now represents the largest bank failure in history. The House voted down a $700B rescue of the Financial World. Ole Miss beat Florida and the Aggies won a football game. Pretty big week all the way around.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, I will have to add you to mine and follow along in your pregnancy. Looks like we will be delivering close to one another. I love TYLER... I went to college in Nacogdoches and use to take monthly trips to the Tyler Mall. Congratulations on your pregnancy...being a Mommy is WONDERFUL. You should feel that little baby move soon. I felt mine for the first time Saturday. They say you feel it a little sooner on your 2nd baby. Yes, we are back to normal after the storm and I could not be more thrilled. Take care and look forward to reading more about you on your blog.

I had gained around 11 lbs at 18 weeks too. Doc said that was fine so I made myself not stress about it. I saw you are in Tyler, Tx. I was born in Palestine, Tx. That's pretty close right? Best of luck with your baby!

Hi, I'm coming to your blog from Baby Bangs....the name Allen caught my eye as we have family with that name.

Then, you being pregnant kinda grabbed me. We're awaiting two (count 'em) TWO grand babies within 6 weeks of one another. THANK YOU GOD!!!

Anyway, just dropping by and saying congratulations to you.

God is good! :)

Congrats on your baby and thanks for the comment on my blog! I was reading back through your registry post and you are cracking me up! We are going to go register on Friday and I think I'm as perplexed as you are! How on earth did our grandmothers do it?!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I love "meeting" new friends on here.

Congratulations of your pregnancy.

My daughter has been married a little over two years. I can't wait for the news one day that I'll be a grandma.

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Please do not worry...you will feel that sweet baby soon. I felt Emma at 17 weeks and 4 days and this one at 16 weeks and 1 day. You should feel it within the next 2 weeks and it is the most amazing feeling when you finally do. I have added you to my list of daily inspirations and will continue to follow your blog. I also have a baby website, you may be interested in taking a look at. www.babyfrazier.com
The password is curtis. I started this when I was pregnant with Emma and will continue it for this baby too. I am a little behind and really need to post some stuff, but IKE has me behing on everything. I look forward to reading about that baby when it decides to give you that first little kick.
