I am 26 weeks today!

And for those who have been following my saga.....for the first time, I have shown a weight gain of 5lbs. I saw the OBGYN today, and he said that everything looks (actually sounds since he doesn't do the u/s or sonograms). In 2 weeks I'll do the glucose test, and in 3 weeks I'll go back to see him. Next appointment is with the MFM, so I'll hopefully have some more pics to share then! Here is what is going on with Tofurkey these days:

The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take two to three days.

In Memory of Leroi Moore

Anyone who knows us, knows of our love and passion for the Dave Matthews Band. This morning, this was the news we woke up to...... From the DMB website: 08/19/2008 We are deeply saddened that LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of Dave Matthews Band, died unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon, August 19, 2008, at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles from sudden complications stemming from his June ATV accident on his farm near Charlottesville, Virginia. LeRoi had recently returned to his Los Angeles home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program. (

The Nursery is Painted!

Apparently 'Handy Man Tom' works in Tropical Storms! What will be the nursery is now painted! We decided to go with just one color (instead of the original plans of 3). We chose Mickey Sailor from the Behr's Disney collection. I think it will look nice with the neutral colors of the bedding and cinnamon colored furniture we chose. Not sure how the color looks in the pics, so I'm posting it compared to the closet doors (which will be painted in a cream-ish color, but are currently only primed). The flooring is being replaced with a wood laminate (we weren't going to change it, but a recent flood has given due cause). When the nursery is completely done, I will post more pics; for now it is just painted with all the old furniture sitting in the center of the room (which if you are interested, is currently for sale on Craig's List). Handy Man Tom is now working on Tofurkey's (aka S.A.L.) bathroom. To that we are just changing the vanity/mirror, the toilet, and painting it a cream-ish color. Although I originally wanted to do a monkey theme, we have decided on a jungle theme instead. Will post those pics once it is done.

Hope you like it!!!

Fruit Change Day! Weeks 25-28 (month 6): Eggplant

Today I am 25 weeks pregnant. As of current, I have gained a total of 3lbs (although I feel like I have gained a total of A LOT more)! Only 105 days until we meet our baby (AKA Tofurkey or S.A.L). Per The Bump:

"Let your spouse put an ear to your belly he might be able to pick up baby's heartbeat (no stethoscope required). Inside the womb, the formation of tiny capillaries is giving baby a healthy pink glow. Baby's also soaking up your antibodies, getting the immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and baby will soon perfect the blink perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes."
Love to all!

23 weeks & 5 days and some Pictures to show

OK, so today we went to the perinatologist, and everything looked good! He is weighing in at a whopping 1lb8oz, and is measuring in the 40th %tile. I'm not quite sure what that means, but the doctor said that anything between 10 and 89 is good. As usual, he had his legs crossed, and didn't really want to pose for the camera. But we were able to get a few nice profile shots in: Of course daddy had to get a picture of his 'mass weapon o/destruction' to show off: Here is a picture of Josh and I from his 29th Birthday 2 weeks ago....

And for those of you who have asked, some bump pics:
This was taken before we went to dinner for Josh's birthday on 7/29/08 at 22w3d.
This one is from this past Saturday at 23w2d.
I hope you to all!!!

23 weeks!

I can't believe that I am already 23 weeks into my pregnancy. Things are going well, and I feel great! According to The Bump, Tofurkey or S.A.L. is about the size of a papaya now and will remain so until I am in my 25th week. Here is what they have to say:
Watch what you say baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day.
On a side note, I can honestly tell you that I probably get about 8-10 hours of sleep a night. I've been doing pre-natal yoga 1-2 times a week, and I love it! It makes me feel so much better and completely relaxed! I'm meeting some great woman along the way, and hopefully this little man will have some really nice playmates!
We have selected our furniture:
They are both from by Baby's Dream; the dresser will double as a changing table as well. The dresser is the actual color of the furniture, it's call cinnamon. The furniture will not be arriving anytime soon, but we will be getting the room ready with new flooring (thanks to a little leak) and a fresh coat of paint (well more than 1 coat, and we'll be using 3 different colors). I promise to post pics of the work in progress.
We're a little tossed on the bedding although we have already registered for this set:
But then last night we saw this:
So, now we are a little tossed. We'll see, but we have decided to stick to a sports theme so that we can display some of Josh's memorabilia. We'll see what happens...we have a few more weeks to decide!
