Yay, I have my 2nd pre-natal Yoga class tonight with 2 of my pregnant friends. We started last week and it's so nice and relaxing! It's supposed to help with delivery and preparing your body for it. I hope it does!! I'm also listening to a meditation CD at night when I go to bed that has a lot of positive affirmations to help with delivery. And reading two books called Birthing from Within and The Thinking Women's Guide to a Better Birth. I'm very excited about all of it and looking forward to a wonderful labor/birth experience!
As for! I'm hungry ALL the time! I'll eat two servings of spaghetti and not feel like I had a single bite! It's ok though, I'm feeding my hungry baby boy! =) I'm snacking a lot too, but that helps keep me sane...haha. I just need to make sure I don't eat 5 million calories a day. I'm trying to eat as much fruit and veggies as I can, but these 100 calorie packs really don't help, they actually make it much easier to eat more often just not as healthy. Oh well, I do what I can ;).
Here's a pic of the newest nursery update:Sean's just gotta put the quarter rounds up and the closet back together, then we get to work on the details!! YAY! Love the wood floors!!!

I have it for you to watch!! It's the best video I've ever seen!!! I know you'll agree =). It's a little over 7 min long and there's no sound, but it's so amazing to watch. You'll see him kicking and kicking and stretching like he needs more room in there. You'll see my ultrasound tech point out that he's a boy in a few shots and where it pauses is where she's printing a still shot. You'll see his spine, ribs, hands, fingers, shoulder blade, diaphragm, skull, legs, just about everything!! He even rubs his knee at one point, it's soooo stinkin cute! My favorite part is the big stretch after she points out that he's a boy. She'll also zoom in on his heart to show the 4 chambers.
The best part of my pregnancy so far has been feeling him kick. At the point of this ultrasound, I hadn't yet felt him, at least I didn't think I had. And you can see him kicking away like crazy. Well, during our ER visit, I felt again what I had thought wasn't him and decided to check it out by placing my hand there and BAM, there it was! He was sure enough kicking me!!! That little stinker, but I wanted him to do it 5 million more times! Now, I'm feeling him when I lay down at night and when I squash him by leaning over at my desk ;). Sean has also felt him a few times, first time at the ER as well. That was the most amazing sight I had ever seen; Sean feeling it for the first time. My brain took a picture of that moment and I'll never forget it. He shouted (quietly), "I felt it!!" and then a moment later, "I felt it again!!" It was breath-taking! Anywho, I won't further delay the it is (grab a tissue):


So, Sean's been working on the nursery and so far it looks AMAZING!! He's done a great job! He's adding the floors in tonight and tomorrow and then touchups will be done. YAY!! Here's some pics so far:

I'll add more pics when floor is done!
Oh, and here's the nursery set we're going with-- it's SOOOOO CUTE!!

Tuesday, the 2nd, Sean and I were at the hospital for a good 5 hours because they thought I might have appendicitis. And really there was no way for them to check (CT-Scan, MRI, X-ray) and I wasn't showing many of the signs for it, other then severe pain in my lower right side. So, they sent me home and told me to come back if I had the major symptoms like fever, vomiting, or loss of appetite. Or to come back in 12 hours if the pain was still there. Well, the pain is no longer there and I'm thankful that it wasn't something serious like that...I'm guessing it was a bowel problem (I know, TMI).
But we did get some new u/s pics!
And here's a pic of me at 21wks!
