14 weeks, 5 days

I've decided I need to start compiling a list of all the precious things that are said to me/my stomach regarding the baby. From time to time (as I remember), I will try and post some here for the reading pleasure.

"Hi there little guy..I'm your daddy and I love you." -obviously Jesse

"Well, just put a soccer ball in front of your stomach, and if it kicks, we'll know it's yours." -Aunt Jess

"S/he's just kinda swimming around in there.."
"Oh!! My niece/nephew is gonna be a swimmer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" -Crazy Aunt Limey

Text conversation with Uncle Joel.
Me: when I find out I'm pregnant, do you want me to just send you a text or call you?
Joel: call
Me: *dials* hi!
Joel: *silence* ...hi...
Me: this is me calling you!

"Don't look at me, I don't want baby to see my angry." -Jesse

Right after we found out at about 4 weeks, I was able to see sister-in-law Erin. Her response was screaming, and then "can I say hi to it now!?!?!?!?! Would that be too weird??!?!?"

At the 8 week appointment for the first ultrasound and check-in:
"We won't be able to hear a heart doesn't have one yet."
"'s alive. How do you think we have an argument against abortionists? It definitely has a heart beat, and we'll be able to hear it today."
*softly, awed* "We'll be able to hear it's heart beat today?!"

"It looks like a shrimp..and sounds like a dog barking." -Jesse (looks like a shrimp in the first ultrasound, heart beat sounded like a dog barking far away I guess).

I'm sure there have been more, but they aren't coming to my brain right now. I'll post more as I think of them :)

--Real fast. I am starting to feel "flutters" which is really exciting for me. Jesse can't feel 'em yet, but I'm excited for when he'll be able to.
I got a call back to the Y for a second interview!
We get to go to Findlay this weekend for Easter!!!!! That's all.

  2. You make me smile ... all the time!

  3. Yay!!!! So exciting and to your comment on my blog. No we haven't tried any of those things yet. Are they like gels or something and where do I get them?

  4. Good luck on your interview. Thanks for sharing the lovely comments about the baby. It brought a tear to my eye, a happy one.
