Heart's 'A Pumpin'

We heard our baby's hearbeat again yesterday! Good to know things are going fine in there. At the end of December we'll have a sonogram to see if the baby is a boy or a girl. Any guesses?? We MAY be able to get a sono earlier if we can find one cheaper than what our office is charging. Anyone know of any cheapies in the Dallas area? We're so excited! My doctor says I should be able to feel movement in the next three weeks. CRAZINESS!

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

No Wonder Women Have So Many Hip Problems....

For the last few weeks, I've felt as though my tummy is HUGE. ENORMOUS. We're talking triplets here, people. But lately, it seems smaller to me. Now, I know that my tummy is not getting smaller. That's not the way it works in pregnancy. So, then, the only reasonable explanation I can come up with is that I.....am.....getting......larger. My body itself is getting bigger and is dwarfing my once-huge tummy. This caused me a bit of emotional pain the other night when I called my mom whining about my hips hurting. She assured me it was nothing other than a little hip expansion. Hip expansion?! No where have I read in any books about pain from hip expansion! I guess I thought that your hips widened for the child-bearing part and then magically repositioned themselved afterward. (I've been told that this is not the case.) Anyway. I'm getting bigger. Yippee. Here are some cutie patootie pictures to distract us all from the very strange body-morphing (and to remind us why we do it).
