21 weeks and some good news!

Yes, that is our furniture on our deck. No, it was only out there for about 15 minutes. You'll see why soon!

Yesterday was a good day in my book. I needed it with all the craziness going on at my house. The house stuff should be done on Saturday so my life should return to normal again and I can't wait! Between our house being in upheaval, the AC went out on Tuesday, right during a week where there was a heat advisory! Luckily, we were able to get someone out here to fix it, and I didn't have to hurt anyone and move into a hotel.

This was the sight at our house this weekend. Nice isn't it? :)

Ok, back to the good news! I had the 2nd part of my anatomy ultrasound today since Mr. Nugget didn't quite want to cooperate last time. WOW--he has GROWN! I can't believe the difference a few weeks make! He has doubled in weight at a whole 14 0z. (almost a pound!) The best news is his heart looks great. This was my biggest concern because if he were to have Down's Syndrome, heart defects are pretty common. Plus, we were able to get a great view of his spine, his bladder, and kidney's! The doctor at the Women and Fetal Health Center at MOBAP felt that everything looked great! I couldn't be happier!

I have been feeling much better lately too (with exception of today and I think I jinxed myself last night by telling Blake that it's been a while since I've gagged or puked!) and I am moving through the 2nd trimester quickly!

We have had some major discussions about names (he made an attempt of making a list) and we haven't' agreed yet! Blake called me last week after my 20 week appointment and he goes, "How's Rod?" I was wondering who the hell Rod was and he goes, "oh, that's what I call the baby."

Nice. Ok, so Rod is doing well!

The best part? I have been feeling him squirm and move! I can totally tell when he is awake and asleep! (Ok, kid....night time is a time for sleep and day time is a time to be awake. You must learn this before you come out!) Sometimes it gets uncomfortable because he is breech and his feet are towards the cervix, so I feel like he is dancing on my bladder! Thanks sweetie!
Can I also mention this is the most comfortable I've been so far and then sweet mother nature decides to bombard us with heat and humidity we usually see in late July or August.
Here is to another week! I cannot believe 22 is in my sight. Time flies when you get fat!

I am glad your pregnancy is doing well and you are feeling good. Congratulations!! We need to see some belly pics!

Down's Syndrome is a big concern for me when I start having babies. My husband's uncle has Down's Syndrome, so it's in the family. That worries me so much. I just we have to stay positive when the time comes.
