Well today I am exactly 20 weeks pregnant. Never thought I would say this, but it sure went fast! So far the baby looks and sounds very healthy. I have to see a heart specialist in Toledo on Nov. 11 to make sure the baby doesn't have a heart defect because heart problems / defects run on my mothers side of the family. Nov. 16, my husband and I find out what we're having. Can't wait! Then I have a regular check-up Nov. 30th. Appointments all over the place I tell you...

I have to say this has been a very happy healthy pregnancy. I haven't gained one pound yet. My doctor explained that I might only gain the baby which will be probably be a little under 10 pounds. My oldest weighed 8 lbs. 9.6 oz. and my second son weighed 9 lbs. 5 oz. so we know for sure this baby will probably weigh about the same amount. Laugh out Loud. I still can't believe I am already five months and will be due in four months! It went by so fast. :( But I am very happy that I haven't had any serious problems besides the fact that this baby is very lazy! My last two pregnancies I felt the babies move at 15-16 weeks, but I am just now feeling this little one. Today I felt a huge summer salt and man was it awesome! :) My sons are getting excited that they will be a big brother and my husband is excited that we are so close to having this baby. He can't wait to see what the baby look likes.

The only thing that scares me is that we don't have barely anything for this baby. We sold all our baby stuff a year ago to make money to buy bigger size clothes for our sons and get them the things they need. I was just surprisedthat we never thought to save anything just in case, but I have to say, we will make it. I started back with a program called "Heartbeat of Lima" Its a wonderful program that helps pregnant women and helps their families out but supplementing for diapers, formula, and clothing. Without them, I would not have some of the baby stuff I am going to need today.

I just want to say to those who care about me and to those who don't know me very well, Thanks for being so supportive and helping me with advice and such. It means a lot to me. Thanks again.

For those TTC, keep at it. Don't give in. God has a plan for you and your family, just wait and see!
