33 Weeks at Christmas

Despite what it may look like, that is not the Christmas ham stuffed under my shirt; it is the baby continuing to grow exponentially.

Jason and I had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed spending time with both sides of our families. We are taking some time off now to get the baby's room in order, and enjoy a little peace and quiet together before the storm hits, so to speak.

It's hard to believe that the baby will be here in just a matter of weeks, but we can't wait!! I can't wait to find out if it is a boy or a girl, first and foremost, and then learn all about its little personality.

I'll be sure to post more about setting up the nursery this week as it progresses.

Hope you all had a great holiday and enjoyed time off to celebrate the most important things in your lives.

30 weeks

Today I am 30 weeks pregnant. Where did the time go? That means that I have 10 weeks left (give or take) until we get to meet the baby. That seems ridiculously hard to believe. And the next 4 or 5 weeks are so busy that I have a feeling they are just going to fly by.
Jason and I were talking about the baby coming the other night and we started making guesses about the baby's gender, its arrival date, and it height and weight. It was fun! Wanna play along? Post a comment below and tell me what you think! (to comment you just click on comment, put in your name then type your text and hit post. You don't need to sign up for anything to comment)
Here are some facts to help you in your guess:
-Official due date (as determined by ultrasound): February 12th
-Original due date: February 4th
-At our last ultrasound appointment we were told that it looked like the baby would be ready anytime between February 2nd and February 12th, but that they were going to leave my official date as the 12th because of the fact that first time pregnancies can go late.
- Jason was 6lbs. 15 oz. when he was born (but he was a few weeks early)
- I was 7lbs 3 oz. when I was born
