6 Months and Counting!!

6 Months and Counting

Hudson is growing and moving and WE LOVE IT!! It is so much fun to see my belly grow DAILY! Tomorrow we will be 27 weeks which means the last week of my second trimester! I can't believe the 3rd and final trimester starts next week!!! Hudson James will be here before we know it.

Our crib is assembled and ready to go, just waiting for all the bedding and decorations. Duncan had so much fun putting the crib together, it made everything seem SO REAL!

We had a Dr. appointment on Friday and found out that my last day of work...as of now...will be April 30th!! WOO HOO!!! The Dr. said due to the population I teach she wanted me to start my leave sooner than later. She said the risk of getting injured is too high, so only about 6 more weeks and I'm off!! I'm really excited to have time to CLEAN and NEST and get Hudson's room and our place all ready for our precious little man.

We have began registering ... SO MUCH FUN!! So far, we are registered at Babies R Us and fawnandforest.com we will also be registering at USA Baby! Duncan even picked out a Diaper Dude diaper bag just for Daddy!!!

We love you Hudson James! We can't wait to meet you!

25 Weeks!!

Wow, I can hardly believe that 25 weeks have gone by with my sweet little Hudson growing in my womb! We are so in love with this little guy already. Today, Hudson is the size of an eggplant measuring in at a whopping 14.8 inches and weighing 2.2 lbs! (well that's what bump.com says). I love getting my weekly emails telling me how he's growing.

I've been a little under the weather this week...(my students gave it to me!) I was worried about Hudson because I didn't feel him move very much one day, but he's fine! As soon as I prayed, I felt kicks and jabs in my belly. He's growing so much and so am I! It is so strange watching the scale go up and up and up!! I'm in the normal range so I have no need to worry, but it is still very strange! I've never weighed over 135 (freshman fifteen!) ha ha...My normal weight is about 120 and at 25 weeks I'm weighing in at 137! Ha! It's a strange thing to get on the scale, but I know my little man is growing good.

We have his crib and changing table (in boxes) waiting to be set up...we can't wait! We're also beginning to register...wow...didn't realize how tough that would be! There are so many THINGS!!! We did find our perfect stroller (we're so excited about it!!) It's called the Bumbleride Indie and is PERFECT for our lifestyle! It is an all terrain stroller that fits infant through toddler and is good for walks and light jogging ANYWHERE! So our summers of beaches, mountains and outdoors will continue with our little man in his new stroller!

Well, just a little update!

Happy Growing!!
