Best pregnancy symptoms ever

I just want to say I feel lucky that the 2nd trimester has been amazing lately and I'm grateful that it is.
I love feeling the baby move, the little flips and butterflies, the wiggles and pressure. Yesterday Rob and I where laying in bed reading which seems to be baby's time to wiggle, and I got kicked harder than the little popcorn bubbles, it was a good flick, so cool.

I love nesting, I'm not sure that Rob is a huge fan of having me pulling everything out and going through it, but I do know that he likes the end result of clean house.

I love baby socks they are so tinny and the idea that we are going to have a little person who's feet fit in them is exciting.

I love showing, Love the baby bump and looking pregnant. I love picking out what to wear that is going to show off my new shape.

I love having energy. Not just to do things but to care about things, to not be so exhausted that I don't even have energy to be passionate about anything.

I love that there are all theses things to love about pregnancy.

baby things

 Roxy testing out the baby sleeping sack. She really liked it even when I unzipped it she stayed in the sack pretty cute.
Unpacking all the baby things that we have and boy looking at it, it is a lot. Organizing it all into sizes packing up the stuff that is bigger and organizing all the little pieces. Nesting. An exciting part of pregnancy that I've never been at. A new thing and so I've pulled it all out and the whole house is being organized, there is a large pile of things that are going in our hall I've cleaned out over half our closets and just looking at the stuff that is sitting waiting to be done makes me twitch. I am lucky that Rob takes this nesting, pregnancy thing with his easy going calm. He knows that it is useless to argue with me and gets the boxes out and puts them back when I tell him too.  Just one of the many reasons that I love him an that he will be the most amazing father.

Yesterday we had our appointment with our Midwife. Baby is measuring well, and has a strong heartbeat of 150 bpm. Everything else was great. Happy, happy happy.  I only got in a little trouble for not having started taking alfalfa, which I was supposed to start last time, but I started taking it yesterday and if taking goat food pills is what is needed for a healthy baby then I will gladly take them.

We've been working on setting up the baby things and I have decided to have a Blessing way instead of a baby shower when we go back to Portland in July. (I'll post more on what a blessing way is and how we are planning on doing it tomorrow)

The sun is out. Rob is making an omelet with fresh free range local chicken eggs, which always taste better than the store bought kind, and we got them for free (perks of knowing actually knowing the chickens) which makes them taste even better.

I have all sorts of plans for sewing fruits today, watermelons, oranges, pears, and apples.
I just feel happy and like today is going to be a good day.

Big steps and a lot of pictures

 Here I am, at 18 weeks. I'm showing people have been stopping me sharing advice. Best so far is don't carry a newborn around on a pillow, they don't brake. All in all I'm feeling pretty good. Baby has been moving around off and on mostly I  think its been happening more than I notice most of the time Rob saying I sway and rub my bump a lot.

 I've been working hard on selling stuff at the farmers market exciting and its been going well. Which is has been going good. I'm learning a lot about what I need to do to make my booth even better each week.

We did a lot of work in the house today. Our bedrooms started out looking like this and it need to get repainted and things needed to be moved around to fit all the baby stuff in it. We managed to get the room painted, install an new light and outlet plugs AND get our bed, dresser, crib, and a changing table in the room which was amazing. I still need to decorate and get things just right but I'm happy with how its looking so far.

Our before is a bit of a mess, the room is really small its only about a 10x10 with a tiny closet and you have to walk through our bedroom to get to the bathroom.

Help from Rome

More help from Romey

Baby's things its a tight fit but its going to work.

So now I need to get the art work back up, sew new curtains, put the AC in the window, and our bedroom will be basiclly ready for Baby. The crib needs to be sanded down and painted, we set it up as it only has three real sides and we want to train the dogs that they can't go in it. Thus the brightly colored mobile I'm not a huge fan of it, it spins around and plays music, Roxy hates it so it is serving as a way to scare her from sleeping in the crib. Later on we will take it down but hopefully it will bother Roxy enough that she decided that the crib isn't for her and Romey usually does what Roxy does so we will see how it works

Yesterday baby was active. I've been feeling the baby, not so much move but the pressure and area where I feel the pressure changes, once in a while I feel flutters.
Last night I was laying on the couch and felt some pretty good flutters that where consistent, in the same place. Honesty didn't think Rob would feel anything but I called him over and told him to try. With out me telling him where to put his hand or when I felt the flutters. He found the spot and then asked if that was it.
Way cool.

17 weeks

Still having trouble realizing that I made it this far. 
I talked to a few people about getting baby things from them and I've had people I don't know ask when I am due. Its crazy and exciting and I think that it might take me a while to wrap my head around this whole thing.

More pregnant than ever

Today I am more pregnant that I have ever been. Crazy exciting.
I don't even have words for the excitement and apprehension that I feel.
New uncharted territory.
No longer able to compare last time to this time.
Last time my baby was dead by now this time my baby is still alive.
