Word to the wise for everyone else...I will let you know if she is moving. I will put your hand on my stomach if I want you to feel it. So please try to retrain the sudden urges to touch my protruding belly at random times....especially in public! Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

Buddy tried to feel her move last night when she was dancing, but she stopped whenever his hand was on my stomach. I think it is the heat from his hand, it probably soothes her and calms her down. But I know he can't wait to feel it, so I try to put his hand on my stomach whenever she is moving a lot. Since she is sleeping in regular intervals now (12-14 hours a day) and is active in regular intervals, hopefully he will get his first kick sometime soon. I haven't figured out yet what her intervals are, but I am planning on documenting them once I get it figured out.
Oh and we picked out a name...but we have only told family so far. Maybe we will let it slip on the blog in a few days or weeks.

a) Can't seem to catch my breath
b) Can't cross my legs without feeling light-headed and fainty
c) Can't get comfortable to sleep (even with my mommy boppy, that Buddy nicknamed "The Blob" and if I didn't already feel like I belonged at the Heavyweights fat camp, that just did!)
d) Don't want to sit, I don't want to walk, I don't want to lie down.....Ah nothing is comfortable!
e) Have acne everywhere! Why could I not get clear skin for once in my life? Why? It is a curse I have to bare....and it's totally not fair!
f) Can already tell summer is going kick my butt, my tan is going to suffer because of the heat, I'm not going to feel pretty and I am going to be in a bad mood for the next four months, Congratulations Buddy!
Just wanted to keep you all up-to-date with how I am feeling and doing. :) And it is my prayer that once I have our baby girl all the complaining that I did will vanish at the sight of her and I will feel it was all worth it for her. And that the rest of you (Megan, Brianne, Ashley, Marla, Sarah, Becca, etc.) will go through the same things I am!
But seriously, I appreciate all of the support and kind words when I am feeling awful (fat, not pretty, uncomfortable, acne everywhere and the list goes on and on). I could not do it without you all, and I am so blessed that my baby girl will have so many aunts/other mothers that love her almost as much as I do (and that buy her things of course!) I love you all, thanks so much for everything so far and everything in the future in case I forget to thank you then!

I actually found this same fabric at Joann's!

Here is her perfect face. I already think she is going to have Buddy's lips.
Here she is turning over, perfect picture of her tiny arm.
I hope you all can see it, but her foot is in the top left hand corner....under where it says foot.

Update on the mom-to-be: Well let me see where to start...
1. I broke my tailbone about 3 weeks ago (slipped on my bridesmaid dress at a wedding and busted it on the dance floor, the fall didn't hurt at all, but my tailbone is still making life uncomfortable)
2. After JUST getting over the most extensive attack of poison ivy I have ever had...it decides to come back for round two! Yeah I have it AGAIN, hopefully it won't be as bad as last time, but it is still showing up ALL OVER...AGAIN! And no I haven't been out in the yard...but Buddy has. I'm not pointing fingers, I'm just saying. :/
3. My belly is starting to stick out very prominently now...so I will have to put a picture up this week. Buddy keeps reminding me, so hopefully we can get that done tonight.
4. I received the first glimpse of what summer will be like for me yesterday at church. I look over at Ashley and say, "They have got to turn on the air, it is so HOT and STUFFY up here" and she says "I'm comfortable"....well great I can't breathe and I'm sweating...great the summer is going to be awesome! At least it is better than winter...right?
Well I guess that's about it other than I feel a little tired this morning and a little sick, but that will soon pass I hope. But it is rainy today and all I want to do is go crawl up in my bed and sleep, sleep, sleep but I have to work, work, work.
