Drum Roll Please. . .

Today was the big day...

I woke up late, but on time, for my first appointment, the check up. All was well. I am exactly my pre pregnancy weight... more on that in my survey, to follow.

I'm telling you an impatient person and a 4:30 appointment do not go well... I didn't get out of the first appointment until after 12, but that's because I needed to take the second part of my blood test [AFP?]. I came home, talked to my mom a bit, showered, and waited for my sister... She got here and we met Will at Panera, when he was off. I drank the liter of water and some Dr. Pepper. Man did I ever have to pee! Showed up to my second appointment... and waited...

The tech did the medical part first, before Will and my sister were able to come in. During this time, the baby tried sucking it's thumb... it was too cute... then the time came... boy or girl?

It's a BOY!

I'm pretty excited. So is everyone else. Will really wanted a girl, but there's always next time... not the near future, but the future for sure.

Here's my Pregnancy Survey:

How far along? 19 weeks, 1 day

Total weight gain/loss: First I lost like 10 pounds, and gained some back... I am now back at my pre-pregnancy weight... Doctor isn't worried, she says the rate I am going, I'll probably gain 10 pounds and it'll be fine because the baby is growing. I am almost half way through so that's good.

Maternity clothes? Love my shorts... still fit in shirts.
Stretch marks? Just the ones I already had

Sleep: Still can't complain, I wake up to pee, that's it

Best moment this week: I felt the baby move and found out we're having a boy!

Movement: I finally felt it... so did Will!

Food cravings: Olives, had some in Vegas and was more than satisfied. I also got my hoy dog and pretzle!

Gender: Boy! <3
Labor Signs: Absolutely NOT thank you very much

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? No wedding ring, but my Promise Ring still fits.

What I miss: Nothing, for the moment!

What I am looking forward to: Registering and shopping!

Weekly Wisdom: I don't feel all to wise yet - or at least wise enough to be sharing wisdom. But I will say I've learned to go to bed when tired and not stay up too late.

Milestones: Me actually believing I was having a baby... Although no movement, seeing the ultrasound and that the baby looked like a baby, made me feel a whole lot better and a whole bunch more excited.
