Not a long post, but just had to announce that we are officially, HALF WAY THERE!

Almost 19 weeks and Everything's GREAT!

Yesterday was an exciting day for me and Kris! We had our "BIG" ultrasound. That's as big as it gets without finding out the gender. Our baby is healthy! From head to toe! Besides measuring 6 days ahead, everything was so normal my Dr. D said it was a boring appointment.

Me, Boring? yeah right. I quickly reminded him of the last 2 years and everything it took for us to get to that point. After a few minutes, Dr. D was whistling the tune, "If I only had a brain." That's not exactly what you want to hear your doctor singing while he's in the room. We all just laughed.

Afterwards, Kris played golf with my dad. I think it did them both some good to get away from "the women." My mom and I went to Olive Garden and enjoyed the salad then did a little shopping. I still think we're having a boy. Watch my intuition be wrong. (What else is new?) But I picked up some cute stuff. If we do end up with a boy, he's going to be the best dressed! Argile sweater vests, plaid pants, collared shirts. Oh yeah... that's where it's at! And if I'm wrong, our little girl will be the prettiest princess, EVER!

Almost 18 weeks down, 22 to go

Tomorrow I will be 18 weeks along in my pregnancy! WOW! Time has really flown by. In the beginning I tried so hard to protect my heart and Kris's that we didn't really take time to enjoy those first few months. But now, it seems as though time is flying by and our baby will be here before you know it.

Yesterday, I received a doppler fetal listener in the mail. (Thanks to one of my dear friends! TY!) I sat on the couch for almost 30 minutes and just listened to our miracles hearbeat. It's really the most amazing sound! Then when Kris got home, I couldn't wait for him to listen as well. He missed the doctor's appointment last week when my dad and I were able to hear it. And then, amazingly enough, I felt the doppler move. Kris was able to feel our baby move last night for the first time ever! Oh I wish you could've seen his face!

We have our "BIG" ultrasound next week, but we will not be finding out the gender. So for now, and until December, our little is known as "Jollybean." We are looking forward to seeing our baby again and finding out just how big he/she really is. Last time, around 13 weeks, our baby was almost a full week ahead of schedule.

But as for me, I'm behind schedule. The nursery isn't even cleaned out, we haven't picked out furniture or anything. We waited so long to make sure that everything was going to be ok that time kinda slipped away from us. I have been buying clothes when I find them on sale or clearance, buying some diapers online and I even think we have names picked out.

This past week, my dad and I made the trip to LA (that's Lower Alabama) to see Granny. I finally told her our news. I was beyond thrilled that I was able to tell her in person. It meant so much to me. And of course, I went shopping for some new Bama gear since they did win the National Championship back in January. But little did I expect to find a Houndstooth onesie! I almost died right there in Hibbet Sports. It wasn't on clearance, much less on sale: But none the less, it found it's way right into my bag.

I realize that I haven't been blogging much. But I will be better from here on out. I haven't recorded many of the little milestones along the way, but you can bet on it that I won't miss another one!
