Taebo Baby

I think our baby is doing taebo in my stomach! I had the weirdest feeling lastnight. Kevin slept with his hand on my stomach all night. The baby was moving like crazy. He/She must've known it wasn't my hand. I got this weird shooting pain throughout my whole side. It was so strong it made me jump in my sleep! I felt that about 3 times throughout the night along with the usual kicks and tumbles the baby has been doing.

6th Prenatal Appointment

I think I can finally say I'm feeling GOOD! So far I've had no more morning sickness. I still haven't been able to cook much but other than that I'm fine.
I had yet another prenatal appointment with Dr. Phillips this afternoon. Everything is still growing as planned, heartbeat was loud and strong. I still haven't gained any weight. Total from since my 2nd appt I've gained 3lbs. That's it. I don't know whether I should be happy or sad. I wish my metabolism was this good when I wasn't pregnant. I was concerned by Dr. Phillips told me it's nothing to worry about. He said most likely the weight will come in the end. Oh no!!

17 weeks

We had our Level II ultrasound done today at Geddes Imaging. An hour of poking around, seeing the baby and taking pictures. It was great! Baby was very active during this ultrasound. He/She was wiggling his/her feet and waving its hands. After a half hour or so of showing off, Baby M became quite shy. We still decided to keep the sex of the baby a surprise. We got great shots of the hands, face and feet of Baby M. I think reality really started to set in finally seeing an image so detailed.
Baby M is definitely a McMaster...the shots of the hands and feet were shocking! Big feet just like his/her Daddy! We got a great profile image that we couldn't stop gawking at. The whole experience made our day. It made Kevin and I smile so much.

Portland Trip Weekend

Kevin and I took a trip to Portland, Oregon this weekend. (The second flying trip since being pregnant.) We also met friends, Kerri and Alex and explored the city together. The weather was not quite what we're used to, but we enjoyed eating out and being tourists.
Baby "M" did fine as well. We didn't have any problems when flying TO Portland, but when we returned Baby must've been exhausted. I ended up getting sick as soon as we landed into Phoenix.
