was that the baby?!! 16 weeks 3 days

I felt the baby today!!! What a cool sensation. I was sitting at my desk at work typing, when I felt a flutter on the right side of my belly. I froze and felt this crazy slight sensation flutter across my belly!! I freaked out!! I didn't expect to feel the baby already! I hurried and wrote down the time. 10:32am.
I then ran to the phone and called to tell Shaun.

At 10:57am I felt a kick!! It was on the right side just below my belly button. I read that it feels like popcorn popping, and that's what it felt like. Just a little soft pop!

I didn't feel anything for the rest of the day, Even with my heighten senses, Just waiting to feel something again.
Oh! How I want to feel the baby again!! I'm sure as it grows I'll want the baby to stop kicking, But for now, I want all the kicking I can get!! Let's get this baby moving! What an amazing feeling!

Our first belly kiss

Shaun came up to me to give me a full frontal hug. As I went to hug him back and nestle my head on his chest. We had a BUMP.....Our bellies bumped together and it was such a funny feeling. We both started laughing. Our bellies just bounced off each other. Our first belly kiss! And our babies first bumper car ride.

14 weeks and 4 days

Wow! Pregnant lady! I put on my maternity pants so you could really get a good shot of my belly and I was surprised! I didn't realize just how pregnant I looked until I saw these pictures.
This picture has my shirt down

OH YEAH!! We have a belly! I was moving my hair out of my face when Shaun snapped this shot. I really have a belly in this picture. My growing little baby!
I went to my appointment today with Dr. Damore. We went over my blood test and I'm just a little anemic. So I will start taking iron pills. I hope it doesn't make me constipated!! I've been clear of that issue so far.
Everything else looked good. I only gained 3 pounds, Which after seeing these pictures seems like it should be more. Does pictures add 10 pounds? (hee, hee)
now for the best part of my appointment........The baby's heartbeat. Right when Dr. Damore put the Doppler on my belly you could hear it right away. Shaun and I just love that sound. It makes it so real. We're truly fascinated. Are eyes grow big and we just look at each other smiling. Then I find Shaun always puts his hand on my shoulder or arm. It really draws you together.
I have my next appointment November 14th. Then November 24th we get to find out the sex. Yippee!! I want to start buying this baby some cute stuff.
Right now in my pregnancy my biggest complaint is food! I hate food!! I'm always starving, even though I eat and snack all day long!! Nothing seems to really taste that good. Sometimes I'll be surprised and really enjoy something.
The only thing that seems to really taste the best is fruit. lately, It has been red apples and pineapple.
Now I need an apple, or pineapple, Just something!

I love Halloween!!

Tonight I'm dragging out the Halloween decorations and I'm going to have myself a ball. I love Halloween. I've got grim reapers, ghost, bats, pumpkins, You get the idea. All the fun spooky stuff a girl could want. Well, I take that back, I could always use more fun decorations. Last year I was smart and hit the after Halloween sales. I got lots of great deals.
I love that the weather starts to cool down, Which is very nice when you live in Arizona. The weather is perfect! And I realize this is why I live here.
I love this time of year because it kicks off with Halloween, Then Thanksgiving, and for the grand finale.......Christmas!!
I hope you all have a fantastically spooky Halloween!! Filled with all the horror you can stand, and NEVER run out of candy.
