So, the baby continues to be stubborn. Tonight we tried to listen to the heartbeat. After trying to find it around all the kicking the baby was doing, we finally found it. I was in the process of starting to record it and I lost it..I finally gave up because I couldn't find it again...just lots of kicks and punches from the baby. I sure hope this doesn't mean Baby Dehls isn't going to be stubborn when he/she comes out!
The baby has been a real pain in my back lately. I have almost recoded from my leg injury and now my back hurts...my great boss at work got me a prenatal massage for my Birthday/Early Christmas! Thanks Chrissa! I will enjoy EVERY minute of it!
HoHoHo! Baby Dehls is going to have to wait till next year to enjoy Christmas. I have decided that that is ok..The baby will be at a really fun age for next year's Christmas and we will be able to get all sorts of fun new toys! Only 6 more days...I hope everyone has a Blessed Christmas!

This was one of my favorite pictures! The baby was sticking it's tongue out at us! It did this several times..it was so cute.This wasn't the best one we got of the little one's face but we got a glimpse into it's eye!
Here's a good one of those sweet little feet!
Wow! Look at those long fingers! We have decided that the baby has my fingers!
The pictures are so real! It's amazing that you can see so much...Now we only have to wait 81 more days for our little angel to arrive!
My mother-in-law gave my a neat little gift today. It is a Willow Tree Figurine..I have put it out in my living room to enjoy! It is called "Cherish". It's a pregnant woman... "ME"!
Only 14 days till Christmas, which means more family gatherings. I hope my sweet baby grows to love and appreciate family as much as I do. They are all such special people to me!

We also went to Christmas on The Square in Weatherford...it was so so COLD. We didn't last long. We were quick to get back to my parents and eat dinner and my Birthday Dessert (Bread Pudding!!!). My mom's birthday is on the 8th so we went and had Brunch at Blue Mesa today to celebrate both Birthdays!! This was followed by going to Babies R Us and Target to create our baby registry! Oh so much work....It took us 3 hours. I sure am glad that Starbucks accompanied us on this adventure because it was so cold and drizzly. Babies need so much! Those were only 2 of the 4 places I registered. The other two are online only.
The baby will be here soon! I will start my 3rd Trimester Tuesday when I am 28 weeks. It is amazing how time flies. I sure hope this week flies because we get another peak at the baby Friday! Can't wait to share the pictures with you!
I hope everyone has a Blessed Holiday Season and a Merry Christmas!

My next appointment is a week from today and I get to drink the sugar stuff...YUCK! I will go every two weeks now. At least I get to hear the heart beat! Time is going to fly by. Last night I was telling Todd I couldn't believe it was Thanksgiving already. He said "We are going to say the same thing in March!" Well, here is a picture of me from today. I am 25 weeks...
My brother-in-law, Josh, came over today and put in the kitchen back splash. It was very exciting! Our house has been a slow remodel but I love every little thing we have done to it! Let me know what you think!

Several website say that the baby should weigh a pound and a half now! I can tell the baby is growing everyday. The movements are very evident in my belly! I have noticed this week my body temperature has begun to rise also. Usually I am ALWAYS cold but not anymore....I was super HOT last night and I am sure I will be until my little angel is born.
I will be 6 months on Tuesday and have a doctor appointment Wednesday. My appointment is with another doctor at the same office. It is a group of doctors so I need to get to know them all now. Who knows who will deliver the baby?!
I will be 26 weeks (6 1/2 mo) at Thanksgiving! I can't wait to see everyone and for everyone to see the baby bump.

Today Todd felt the baby kick for the first time! It was very exciting for the both of us. I think it was the orange juice! We just put the stroller together. I think it took a total of 10 minutes to assemble. Easy Breezy!
Here is a picture of Todd with the stroller...I must let you know that the mohawk is temporary! He had to shave it because they raised more money than last year at the OTB in Burleson for Susan G. Komen. He has to wear it pink tomorrow to work! He definitely has to wear a hat when we are together in public! Hope you enjoy the picture!

Well to top things off, when I got home I had a dozen red roses and lily's waiting for me! I think Todd did pretty good...ok GREAT! He even cooked dinner but we all know he does that anyways...I'm not much of a cooker. Here's a picture of my pretty flowers...

I had an appointment this morning and got to see our little ANGEL........Here is the sonogram I got! So big compared to the first sonogram. The heart beat this time was 154 bpm. The nurse said that he/she weights approx. 11 1/2 oz and is 8 3/4 in. long. Below are two of the pictures I got. One is of the whole body and the other is the baby smiling at us! If we wanted to find out the sex, we wouldn't have been able to today because the baby was curled up so tight with all the goodies hidden! We go back on November 11th! They really do need to make appointments closer together. A month is WAY too long for me to wait in anticipation. Even if it is to hear the little one's heart beat!
Below is a picture of the growing tummy for those of you I don't see on a regular basis. It's amazing how clothes fit one week and the next week they are a little tight! At least I have an excuse...BABY! It was early in the morning when the picture was taken so I wasn't awake yet!
We bought our first big baby item this past weekend. Thanks to a good friend, we were able to get a toddler car seat at a really good price! A little ahead of ourselves because we haven't even gotten our infant car seat but I couldn't pass it up. The only thing we have left to pick out is the furniture. Hopefully it will be quick and painless and NOT back ordered!
I got a really neat book in the mail from my mother-in-law a few weeks ago..it has been a great guide to buying baby stuff. Every mother should have it or read it at least!
Around 28 weeks (Christmas), Todd and I are going to have a 3D Sonogram done and we won't even find out the sex! Exciting for me and a bummer for some of you dying to know. I just love technology (sometimes)! We are going to have both of our parents there to share in this neat event! We even get a video to show the baby later and color sonograms! So Cool!

I feel the same will be when the baby comes. We can do all the planning ahead of time but you don't realize what a life changing event it really is. The baby's room may be ready and the nursery stocked but the emotional and mental changes will be so dramatic. We will have another life to care for everyday. I don't think this is something parents will ever be fully prepared for. You never really know how it will affect you until it happens. All I can do is pray and leave it to the Lord....

Todd and I went to the doctor today and heard the baby's heart beat. It was 144 bpm! Our next appointment is October 15th. We will get to have another sonogram done finally!!! We aren't going to find out the sex still...for all those dying to know, it will add to the excitement on the day of!
I have been feeling a ton better but am lacking in energy. While Todd is at work on the weekends, I am usually on the couch in comfy clothes all day. It's wonderful but at the same time I feel so worthless.Comfy is definitely key when you are pregnant. I have had a hard time finding comfy maternity clothes so I am going to settle for regular clothes in a bigger size plus the clothes at the maternity stores aren't that cute. I bought the only cute shirt at Motherhood maternity the other day.
I have decided that being pregnant in the middle of the summer would suck. If I get hot I feel horrible and we all know that summers in Texas are HOT! Just cooking makes me hot. I made dinner one night for Todd and had to sit down so he could finish it...I know...I'm pathetic!! Easy way out :)
I have definitely learned that pregnant women do not get special treatment. I was at Waly World the other day with my cute "expecting" tee that my mom got me and the guy just looked at me after he rang me up...since when do you put your own groceries in the cart?! I was so mad when I left there...that was just RUDE of him!
Here is a cute shirt shirt my mom got me!! I love it! Thanks Mom!
I had the weirdest dream this past week. I went into labor at only 20 weeks but was really full term but the doctors did not know it! When I left the hospital I was totally unprepared and didn't have a car seat so Todd and I drove around with the baby in our arms!! I was so worried the next morning about buying a car seat!!! I was ready to order it immediately but we all know I have a ways to go.

Todd finished paining the bead board and trim in the baby's room! It is a creamy white that my mom picked out. It is going to go great with the new bedding I picked out! The walls will either be petal pink for a girl or a light green for a boy! I am dead set on this bedding..thanks to my friend Jana in NJ telling me that Restoration Hardware sells baby stuff! Check it out below and let me know what you think!
Todd is going to take a break from working on the room until he puts up the crown molding! Can't wait! For now we are just counting our blessings and our little blessing that is on it's way!
I already know that motherhood is going to be real challenging. I listen to 103.7 in the morning and the last couple weeks have been about going back to school and parenting. You really have to think about what is best for your baby especially as they are growing older and you have to start disciplining. Hundreds of things run through my head a day...what to do in certain situations? Am I going to be a good parent? All I know is that I have to put it in God's hands and trust that he will guide me and make me a good parent.

Last night Todd took pictures of the Baby Bump! It is slowly forming but definitely there.
The baby's room is almost ready to paint! Todd and our great neighbor Don put up the chairrailing today. Todd is going to be a busy man when the baby comes! Actually I have recruited my mom and sister to get the baby's room decorated once the baby comes. Thanks guys!
Tuesday, August 11, 2009
My 2nd appointment is next Tuesday morning! Hopefully we will get another sonogram of the growing baby.
Todd is priming the walls for when we actually get to paint when the baby comes....I hate painting. Well maybe it hates me because it get it EVERYWHERE!
I'm not really having any cravings....except last night! SNO-CONES! Yum....it was sooooo good!

For all of you who don't already know....we are going to wait and find out the sex of the baby when the baby comes! It will make it more exciting for us all!
Well, the sickness is still here. Todd is going to get my RX in a min and I am going to continue lying on the couch!
