More Than Just a Bump!

I haven't been great about updating on the pregnancy. For a quick re-cap: The first trimester was a little rough, throwing up morning and night wasn't fun at all! But magically, around 13 weeks I woke up and felt AMAZING-I wanted to EAT real food again (not just crackers).
The second trimester has been great! At 16 weeks we found out we're having a boy, and just a few weeks ago we had our 20 week ultrasound, and he is lookin' healthy. I'm 23 weeks and feeling good! I feel the lil' guy kickin' and moving around a lot. Sometimes at work while I'm just sitting at my desk, I look down at my belly and watch it move as he kicks and punches. It's the best, I just watch it and laugh. Brett can feel and see his kicks too. He loves it!
We have a name for the lil' guy, but are choosing not to will all just have to wait until he's born, and then you'll just have to like it:)

At my 20 week ultrasound the technician told us baby Denney was measuring a little small. Brett freaked out, "What, Denney babies don't measure small?" And then he insisted I needed to eat more. Well last week at my appointment, my doctor told me I am measuring a week bigger than my due date. Brett must have offended the lil' guy and now he's out to prove he's not a weakling or small. But seriously, my belly has grown so much in the last two weeks. Yes, it freaks me out and has me a little worried that he'll be a gigantuous baby, but I'm just trying to enjoy it all!!

So here's the "more than just a bump" picture some of you have been waiting for.

23 weeks.....still feels like forever to go!!

Dreaming......about a babymoon

I am currently dreaming about dashing away with Brett to a tropical location, and enjoying a fun and relaxing week-long vacation before this baby comes. But it's just not in the cards for us. With football, school, and work it's impossible. I'm due February 24th, and Brett's done with football and school in December. January is probably too late for me to be flying, or on a boat, or on a remote island miles and miles away! Plus, I can't imagine feeling like a beached-whale on vacation would be much fun or comfortable??

I guess we'll have to do a post-Babymoon sometime next year. In the meantime, I'll just keep dreaming about it.....
