16 weeks - and counting...

Not much to report, I finally went shopping for Maternity clothes - which I thought would be a bummer, but it was so fun. I went to Motherhood Maternity and they have tons of cute spring/summer dresses for work and play - I am so excited! It felt good to put on those clothes, they are so cute. At first I was dreading being all preggers in the summer, but I always have been a summer girl, nothing against Fall and Winter, but Spring and Summer in my opinion are just better. The weather is pretty, you can go to the beach, ride in the boat, soak up the sun, float down the river, the possibilities are endless. So basically, I love Summer CLOTHES - so this is working out fantastic!

I will post some pictures soon of my bump, but you know me, I have to be in a cute outfit, I am not brave enough to put up a picture of my bare belly - well until my mom takes my maternity pictures and we PHOTOSHOP the hell out of them - haaaa - it is just that it is time for maternity wear with my ever expanding belly!
I am going to Columbia this weekend, to see my friends - at a baby shower! It will be fun. I need some girl therapy - living in the house with Tony is great, but I was used to Melissa always being there, so even after 8 years with Tony - I need some girl time - now more than ever.

Baby Mitchum is the size of an Avacado this week, I thought Naval Oranges were bigger than Avacados, but what do I know....anywho - only a few more weeks until we find out what BABY M is, it is seriously driving me crazy! I have two friends who are waiting, HOW IN THE WORLD are you doing it? I can barely wait three weeks!

Almost 16 weeks - where is the time going!

Well, today I am 15 weeks and 5 days pregnant - only a few more days until I am 16 weeks.

I have a confession to make, I went to Publix the other day - on my recent trips to the grocery store, I always skip the diaper isle, however I decided I wanted to check out the isle that was sure to become a huge part of my life. I walked down the isle and saw all of the baby shampoo, soap, lotion, bottles and diapers. WOW - there was a lot of stuff. I read in a magazine that there is some new citris smelling baby products, (fyi, I love PRODUCTS - lotions, perfume, makeup - whatever is new, I am a total sucker for the new razor, shampoo smell, etc) so I decided I must know what they smell like, I am also really into smells. I smelled the baby shampoo and lotion and almost started sappy am I. I know this sounds a little wierd, but just the thought of holding our little baby was a little overwhelming that I got choked up. Then I decided I was a little strange, and walked towards the diapers, yeah - how do you know which diapers to get, oh my - so much to learn.

Well the best part of the story is that I get home and tell Tony that I almost started crying in Publix, he looks at me so wierd, and I tell him the story of going down the baby isle and smelling the baby stuff. He looked at me, seriously and said, "You smelled the diapers?" UGH! MEN! "No, I was smelling the new citris scent baby shampoo and lotion!!!" but, he still seem confused! He is not so into products, he comes home with the most random shampoo so he is not allowed to get it anymore, I figured - he wasn't going to get it, so I let it go. HAAAAAAA

Life is great, I am getting a tummy - and excited that I am finally starting to show a little. I am still reading all of my books and right now - Baby M is the size of - a NAVAL orange! I love relating our baby to fruit b/c everyone gets it...

I hope everyone had a Happy Valentines Day - Tony and I spent ours at a wedding so we celebrated on Friday night. Tony sent me white/pink/red tulips (my favorite) for Valentines and we went to dinner. Of course, I was a sleep at 9:30 and slept all night and woke up at 8:30 Saturday - this doesn't seem normal - but I guess I need the sleep.

Well, I must clean the house today - chores must be done.

Love to all!

14 WEEKS and counting...

Ok, we are officially 14 weeks and 1 day pregnant TODAY!!! How exciting! I heard Baby Mitchum's heartbeat this afternoon, it was wonderful. Most days I don't feel preggers so I asked the doctor to make sure, he started laughing - as I am sure he hears weird comments all the time. He said I am doing great, I look great and to enjoy my pregnancy - so that is what I am going to do.
I am very emotional - well, if you know me very well, you know I am normally emotional, however I don't mean this in a negative way. Basically, I just see things differently. Commercials touch me, no - not the AT&T ones, HAA - even songs touch me even more than usual - from what I understand this is normal - I hope that is right!!!

I am really anxious to find out the sex of our little bambino. Tony has been telling everyone it is a boy and that we are naming him his name, and calling him Quinn. Now let me explain, we have talked about it, but we have made no decisions - he is just excited. Last weekend was so cute, we were in Walgreen's or something and he said, as he bounces a ball around the store, "Liz - I can't wait to play with all of our kids toys." And then when we pulled up in the driveway he said, "Oh, we need to get a basketball goal!" It is really sweet to see Tony so excited about the pregnancy. If you know Tony he is not a very outwardly emotional person, I guess that is why we are a good match. I am way up high with emotions, and he is the calming one who brings me down a touch. But since we first found out, he has been so excited - mainly b/c he thinks it is a boy and he is going to have a little Mitchum to take fishing and golfing.

We are going to Charleston - to MUSC March 19 to find out the sex of the baby. I will have an 18 week appointment, but since I am already scheduled for the 3D - I am not having one at 18 weeks, so I have to wait 2 more weeks...I don't know what I am going to do with myself.

I look up a lot online, I found out today that the Baby Mitchum is the size of a lemon - so here is a picture - not that you need a reference - but take a peek. Also since I haven't had an ultrasound lately I go to - MY FAVORITE SITE - and here is what the baby looks like right now inside me. I hope this doesn't freak you out, I am obsessed with this site, I go to it everyday!!!!

Well, I am going home to have dinner, I am starved!!!
Love to you all.
Can't wait to announce what we are having - !!!
