Family Day

Kris has been in the field all week. Yesterday was a army sponsored family day. This was my first time going down on the range. Usually they don't let civilians down there. Kyle had a great time exploring Kris' tank. He had to be pried off of the tank at the end of the day. This made Kris such a proud father.

Kyle actually taking a second to look at his mommy for a picture.

22 Weeks

So I thought that I would post my first belly pic for you all to see. I decided that I would cut off my head since I didn't do my hair, and I am kinda looking funny at the camera. I took the photo myself using my self timer for the first time.
I also decided that I would answer a pregnancy survey that I stole off my friends Carries blog. I hope you enjoy.
How far along? 22 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? 5 lbs. Not to bad I guess
Maternity clothes? Yes Yes Yes. I have been in for a long time now.
Sleep? I am actually sleeping this week. I think it might be cause Kris is in the field and I am getting the bed all to myself.
Best moment this week? Hearing the baby's heartbeat again/ finding out I get another ultrasound.
Movement? The baby is moving more and more. Likes to kick my bladder especially if its full.
Food Cravings? Fruit. I love fruit. Especially peaches and nectarines.
Gender? Boy this hasn't changed from last week.
Labor signs? None yet thank goodness.
Belly button in out out? Still in, and still squishy.
Symptoms? Just getting bigger and bigger. Still really tired.
What I miss? Adult beverages, especially on margarita Wednesdays.
What I'm looking forward to? Holding the baby in my arms and snuggling.
Weekly wisdom? When going to the bathroom empty your bladder completely. Yes I actually read this in more than one place, it is advice for pregnant women. But what I want to know is when don't you empty your bladder completely?

I was excited

Yesterday I had another check up for the baby. Everything looks good, even though my baby is measuring big, I am right on track. I also haven't gained a whole bunch of weight, even tho you wouldn't know that by looking at me. My belly is huge. But what I got excited about is that I get a third ultrasound. Why if everything is looking good, well its cause the baby was being stubborn last time. I guess they didn't get enough face and spine shots for what the recommend. So I get to go back and see my baby boy again. Whoo hoo.

Flat Tire

Yesterday as I was driving to pick up Kyle, I got a flat tire. In the middle of nowhere CO. Seriously I had no idea where I was. I couldn't see a mile marker. I had no idea of what the last town I passed was, or what the next one coming up was. I was in the middle of nowhere.

I am thankful that I do know how to change a tire. I am also thankful that my car has a full size spare. I wouldn't want to make the rest of my drive with a doughnut on. I am very thankful that in my last 300 miles that I drove that day that I didn't blow another tire. That was a big fear of mine.

It's great having Kyle home, but I don't think that I will be doing that drive alone again anytime soon. Especially with my pregnant belly.

I hope you all have a great weekend, and tomorrow I will post results of what we are having. Just o let you know the baby has has a name change since Thursday when we found out. I don't think I am going to post the baby's name, since I guess it could change again.

The Results are in.

Today I had my big ultrasound. I broke down and we found out the sex of the baby. It is not what the intellegender said. Kris and I are both really happy. But now we are rethinking the name we picked out. I will share what the gender is as soon as all our family knows. But feel free to speculate.

The Baby is healthy, and everything looks good. But the baby is looking big. Lets just hope that it's smaller than what Kyle was.

Kyle's Gone

Today I dropped Kyle off with his grandparents. I am childless. Well at least until Saturday. What will I do with my time? I have no idea. Any suggestions?
