and there are still some good pals who haven’t put in predictions. http://www.expectnet.com (game name precious_dreams). time’s running out for you! 🙂
i found out yesterday that the baby is due on my mil’s bday! jerry said he knew, he just didn’t mention it. guys are so silly sometimes, thinking things like that wouldn’t seem important. hehe. but mil hadn’t mentioned it when i told her the due date either. ?? i always think it’s so cool when someone shares a birthday with me – if someone were due on my bday, i would think it was neato-cool. 😉 oh well. also, one of our nephews has the same birthday as well! how interesting is that?!
what is the fascination with birds?? i am not a bird-lover. i am not a bird-hater, either, but i would NOT waste money on getting birds food just so i could look at them. point? grampa now has that roller walker, and we still don’t have the ramps set up for him to get outside. but he still wants to go out and put birdseed out. which is right in front of the house, so he and kc will be tracking birdseed in again all over the new carpet. it is such a pain. sigh. 1) dangerous. 2) messy. 3) waste of money. 4) waste of time and energy. BLAH.
i’m worrying again about the non-weightgain thing. i still am a bit under 170. remember, pre-preggo i was in between 175 and 180. i’m 21 weeks now. shouldn’t i have gained more by now? i know i am overweight, and i was overweight pre-preg, but is the baby getting enough nourishment? i know my breasts weigh about a pound each (jerry said more like 5 lbs each – wow, thanks hon! hehe)! lol. i’m just concerned the baby isn’t getting enough, and that the dr will tsk-tsk me about not gaining more weight. but i eat whenever i’m hungry, and eat quite a bit. where oh where is that food i eat going, if i’m not gaining weight??? and is that horrible??
i have a few stretch marks now. i still have the waist-line, and i still have an inny belly button. when do you think it will fill out?
i’ve been thinking about the girl/boy thing a lot. know why we need a girl? i’m outnumbered here with guys. 3-1. with a baby girl, it would at least be 3-2. 🙂 if it’s a boy, it would be 4-1!! i told jerry if the baby is a boy, we need to get a girl puppy or kitten. LOL. at least help me even it out a little bit!! 😉
well, i need to let the dog out. he sees a squirrel and can’t handle not chasing it. 😉 hehe.
love and blessings,
jenn and baby j
oooooooh baby, soon i’ll know who you are!! i’ll know if i should prepare bows and dresses or cars and trains!!!!!!!!!! i’m so excited to find out, and to see you again. i know you’ve grown SO much since i saw you last!!!! papa, gramma and i are so very excited. 🙂 yes, gramma gets to be there too!!!! and as soon as we’re done, gramma and i are going to go out and add things to the registries for you. 🙂 this is such an exciting time, and i love you SOOOOOOOOO much. i hope we get a good view of you in the ultrasound, and not just between your legs! 🙂 i want to see a clear outline of your face. 🙂 i love you precious munchkin!!!!! lots of hugs and kisses from your mama!!!!!
**UPDATE: amy had the baby! she was induced thursday night, and ended up needing a c-section saturday night. Mackenzie Reese was born Saturday, September 6 at 7:41 pm.

    hey jenn!
    i also love when someone shares my birthday! my little cousin shares my birthday, and i think it’s neat! of course i do now more so than when i was a kid, because i wanted ALL of the attention then 🙂
    i started to get my real “hearty” appetite around week 23ish. i guess it’s different for everybody! one thing is certain, you will get that hearty appetite soon! people have had there’s start around week 16, some others week 30. but, it comes no matter what 🙂 (so i’ve heard!)
    i still have an innie too! although when i pull the skin on my tummy area tight it seems to be a little more closer to the surface. that’s another odd thing about pregnancy; what determines innies vs. outies? hmm maybe it’s hereditary? or maybe it’s just the way your insides are.
    thanks for your insight on the baby swing. i’m starting to get an obsession with rubber ducky stuff! lol
    hey, maybe i’ll do adriana’s bathroom in that theme?? hmmmm!
    have a great day!

  2. I wasn’t gaining any weight either…but at my last appointment
    I wasn’t gaining any weight either…but at my last appointment (25 weeks) I had a big JUMP in my weight. I gained 9 pounds in 4 weeks!! So now I am finally about where I am supposed to be for how far along I am. So you just haven’t had your big jump yet…but you will!! Also, your baby is getting everything it needs from whatever you eat…YOU will go without nourishment before your body lets your baby go without nourishment. So I am sure baby J is doing just fine! I am sending you lots of “open leg” prayers for your big U/S! I can’t wait to hear the results!

  3. Don’t worry about the weight. I lost with both Cliff and Emily a
    Don’t worry about the weight. I lost with both Cliff and Emily and Cliff was 10lbs 12oz. 23 inches long and Emily was 7lbs 11oz. and 19 inches. I was smaller after having both and both were fine and healthy. 🙂 Aw let grandpa and KC enjoy the birds.. to some they are very restful and peaceful to watch. Gives him something to do. the mess and cost are worth his happiness, right? ~hugs~

  4. Don’t worry about the weight, the baby is getting all he/she nee
    Don’t worry about the weight, the baby is getting all he/she needs. Eat and take those vitamins and baby will be just fine. Most people who are overweight before pregnancy don’t gain as much during pregnancy. My friend only gained 15 pounds and another lady I knew throw up everything she ate til the last month of her pregnancy and her baby was almost 10 pounds and very healthy. Don’t worry .
    You will be filling out very soon!

  5. You should see me try to watch a movie!!
