"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Baby and appointment update...

Things are going wonderfully! I will be 25 weeks tomorrow. At my appointment today, my bp was still back down in the normal range (120/72...amazing what feeling movement can do for you), I've lost another pound (13 lbs below my starting weight), and my uterus is measuring 3+ weeks ahead (with Marty I was consistently 2 to 4 weeks ahead) so I get an u/s on Monday!!! The nurse seemed very surprised that I was already able to see his kicks from the outside (she remarked "but he's not that big yet" LOL). In fact, Gabe kicked so hard at one point this afternoon that he made my book {that was resting on my tummy) jump.

I am starting to get really excited about this!

Finally took another belly pic

Does it look bigger to you?  I know Gabe is growing because of where I feel the kicks...but I swear I have trouble seeing the belly growth...LOL.

Duh...I figured out the difference. The first pic was in regular clothes while this outfit is maternity wear.

I finally bought something for the baby.

Of course, I have other baby stuff I have bought or saved in the past. However, I had not bought anything specifically for Gabe at any point in this pregnancy. I was in Wal-Mart today and decided he had to have this...

This was really a huge step for me. Hehehe...I think I was hyperventilating when I was in line at the check out counter...just the thought of actually buying something specifically for Gabe did that to me.
