When Dr. Jarrett tried to listen to the heart with the Doppler, the baby kept kicking her and hiding. Yes, she found the heartbeat of the umbilical cord and the placenta, but she was trying to get right over the heart and the baby wouldn't let her. It was pretty funny! She kept looking and Phillip and saying, "Do you see what your child is doing? Are you ready for this?" So, she used the sonogram to see the heart. We could see a hand and the eyes and legs and rib cage (and heart, of course)! She pointed out the liver, but I never really saw that.

The plan is to have two couples per month and at that rate, we'll cover all of them before the baby comes!

Pray for him (and Wayne's wife Charlesta and their daughters Karen & Kathy) when you get a chance.

Today I feel pregnant, more than I have this first 19 weeks. Obviously, I've been pregnant for a while now and even mentally, I've sort of felt that. But, today, I physically feel it! I feel like I'm about to explode. (I feel that way most nights, but not usually during the day.) I'm walking slower because I just feel, well, like I'm about to explode. I know, if you've been pregnant, you're thinking, "Just wait!" I know worse is coming, but this is how I feel now. So there!
Sidenote: I need to clarify the pounds issue. My doctor was comparing my pre-pregnancy (at home, in the morning, just out of the shower) weight to my current (at the doctor's office--scales measure the exact same as home, by the way--in the afternoon, with clothes). So, according to her calculations, I had gained five pounds. According to reality, I had only gained two pounds at my last visit.

Also last weekend, we went shopping with my parents and bought the baby book--"The Big Story of Little Me"!
Today was a busy day. Phillip and I went to Babies R Us to register! We picked out all kinds of fun stuff, mostly the big ticket items, because, honestly, I don't really care what blankets, onesies & socks people buy for us! We did add a few things once we got home, but we had a good time.
Thanks to my good friend, Cara, we have a glider and ottoman. Today we also picked out paint for the changing table that matched the glider.
