doc visit yesterday

happy saturday. today i am 18 weeks pregnant! feeling pretty good these days, other than the little sore throat and cough that is slowly going away. im definately feeling baby movements. its like this kid is doing summer saults, hand-stands, cart-wheels.

yesterday i had my monthly checkup. i got there early and picked up a copy of Conveive magazine, which all other pregnant women in the room were reading. I relaxed by reading about all the things i am suppose to have for the baby. What, a diaper seperator? huh?

*
bassinet or cradle
crib
crib mattress
waterproof mattress pads

fitted sheets in cotton or flannel

have a good laugh.

doc appt update: i am measuring normal (even thou of course i feel my belly is 'small' but i am fat), baby's heartbeat was 130/min, which doc found right away. she didnt do ultrasound, so i was a little diappointed....but even more excited to see the babe in february on the big screen. i was slightly concerned about my weight gain (feeling huge!) but this month was only 5 lbs, so that is right on track. yeah! hey doug, pass the butterfinger please (joke).

i need new clothes.

Bye, baby bunting
Daddy's gone a hunting
To get a little rabbit skin
To wrap his baby bunting in

Bye, baby bunting
Daddy's gone a hunting
A rosy wisp of cloud to win
To wrap his baby bunting in
