Hi There!

Being pregnant means you check the website 548375493 times a day. Well, at least I do. Along with all the catty remarks, suggestions, and comments from other mothers and mothers to be - I found that a lot of women had started family blogs. Now, I'm not much of a blogger, but realized it may be a great way to document the rest of my pregnancy - along with keeping everyone updated on our newest little addition.

First off, I would like to say that Dan and I are SUPER excited to become parents. It's a mixture of being nervous, excited, and scared all at the same time. I wouldn't change it for a minute. Well, I wish I wasn't always so nervous!
Anyway, our newest addition to the family will be here August 4th, 2010. GRAYSON!
I will start my first blog off with the quiz:

How Far along: 21 weeks 4 days

Weight gain: between 10-12lbs? (my scale is a little off at the house, we'll have better measurements at the docs on Thursday)

Maternity Clothes?: Mostly shirts, my pants still fit with an elastic band!

Stretch Marks?: Not Yet

Sleep?: Depends on the night. During the week, only a couple hours.

Best Moment this week?: Having Dan sit and watch t.v with his hand on my tummy, Gray-man kicked for a good hour..

Movement?: Kickers

Food Craving?: None, ice cold water at night..if that's a craving

Gender?: ALL BOY

Labor Signs: NONE and there better not be any for a while

What I miss?: Not aching after I work out!

What I'm looking forward to?: going to the next doc's appointment this thursday to hear Gray-man's heartbeat

Emotions: Feeling a little overwhelmed with being a parent, other then that - we're good to go!
