Week 21

Today I am 21 weeks and 1 day!  I had such a great week last week and this past weekend was so much fun!  I have had a great time sharing all the wonderful moments thus far in my pregnancy.  This week I am relaxing and spending a lot of time thinking of all things baby.  Like what will the nursery look like, baby names, baby clothes, baby gear, and paint colors.  Chad is ready to get started on the nursery and get this project completed.  I believe that I have finalized the nursery bedding and the color theme.  I also have done some shopping for winter clothes for our baby boy at Baby Gap.  They have some amazing deals right now that I just couldn't pass it up.  I need to go to Children's Place and Old Navy to see what kind of deals they have on baby clothes.  I know I am shopping early, but I can't express how excited I am that we are having a healthy baby boy!  Yes Chad and I are expecting a Healthy Baby Boy in May 2010.  During our ultrasound they completed a complete review of our baby and everything is normal and our ultrasound tech and doctor told us that our baby is healthy.  So going forward unless I have any issues I will no longer need ultrasounds and we will just have our normal monthly appointments.  I loved seeing our baby boy, but I am happy that everything is going well! 
God is Good! 
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 21 weeks and 1 day
Baby Boy Stafford Weighs:  13 ounces
Baby Boy Stafford Heartbeat:  144
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained 4 pounds since my last appointment in December so my total weight gain is 6 pounds
Maternity Clothes: None Yet
Sleep: Sleeping is going okay I do wake up at least once a night to use the bathroom and than I lay awake thinking about things that are going on in my life or about our baby. 
Best Moment this week:  My favorite moment was seeing our baby last week and finding out the gender of our baby.  I also loved having our Family Reveal via Skype and our Gender Reveal Party.   
Gender:  It's A Boy!
Movement:  Yes I have experienced the first movement.  It was amazing and I love the feeling. 
Food Craving: Honey Nut Cheerios and Dark Chocolate
What I miss:  I don't miss anything right now!  I was missing chocolate milk, but I did find a chocolate milk that I like.  So that makes me happy! 
What I am looking forward to:  Planning and Preparing the Nursery and Shopping!
Symptoms:  None I am doing well!

Look at how ADORABLE that little baby bump is!! Just precious!! :) I'm also glad you found some chocolate milk that you enjoy and can drink. Yay for that!

Thank you so much for keeping us all updated. As your friend, I LOVE being able to read about your days. I know your family loves it, too. Therefore, just remember...as I told you tonight and will tell you forever: YOU, my dear friend, ARE LOVED.

~ Isaiah 41:9-13 ~

I took you from the ends of the Earth,
from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, 'You are my servant.'
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

All who rage against you
will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
will be as nothing and perish.

Though you search for your enemies,
you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
will be as nothing at all.

For I am the LORD, your God,
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.

I have ordered 3 sets of bedding for my grandchildren in the past 5 years from a company of stay at home mommys out in Texas. GrahamKracker.com is the BEST!! The quality is amazing, they wash beautifully and the staff is so helpful. You will NOT be disappointed, I've seen other custom bedding that did not compare. If you aren't sure, call them and they will send you swatches and work with you to make it your own design. You will love it, PROMISE! Take care of yourself!
