The baby has started moving more and more! When I got home, Josh was able to feel the baby move for the first time. It was great. There is nothing more amazing to me than feeling a baby move. Everytime I feel the baby, I feel blessed and amazed at the miracle of life.
Here are the pictures of the week. I am up another .5 pound from last week, so I know the weight is coming. I am just hoping that it doesn't creep up to fast and too much.
And the bare belly...it's getting bigger and strangers are really starting to notice and question, so now I am pretty sure that I look pregnant and not just fat! :)

I leave for Wisconsin for the Career Conference tomorrow, so that means 3 days away from Mia and Josh. I'm going to miss them tons, hopefully I can get some good sleep while I'm gone, but I doubt it. Here are this weeks pictures. I gained 2.5 pounds this week...YIKES! That's okay though, I am enjoying watching the belly grow.
Here are the new belly pictures from this week.

We decided to start the nursery with gender neutral bedding. We will keep this bedding for awhile until we decide to go with a more gender specific bedding. The bedding we picked out is super cute, this is the comforter (which we didn't get), but the bumper looks just like it. The crib skirt is sage and chocolate brown dots...super cute. Below are a couple of options we have picked out if it's a girl and one if it's a boy. I think both are adorable! :)
And that brings me to the infamous belly pictures. First of all, on a good note, I lost 2 pounds this week. So I am thinking the scale was off last week. That means I am only up 1 pound from 2 weeks ago, putting my total weight gain so far at 2 pounds. I am pretty excited about that. I have been feeling movement a little bit, since my placenta is anterior (in front) it is harder to feel, but I am starting to feel it more and more. Everytime I feel this baby move I remember how blessed I am to be carrying this child.
And here is the bare belly picture, I feel like I may have finally popped out! :)
One final note...to stick with our surprise theme, Josh and I have decided on names. We are set on our boy's name, and have our girl's name narrowed down to two. We are super excited. We decided to keep our names a secret for a couple of reasons:
1) We don't want to hear any feedback on our choices
2) We aren't sure which girl name we want to use yet, so if it's a girl, we want to wait to see our little girl before we name her.
So...come May, there will be LOTS of surprises! :)
Also check out the header of my blog and take a guess on who this little baby is.

April - Mia turned 1 year old
September was a busy month for us. Josh turned 29, Mia stayed away from home for the very first time and we found out Mia was going to be a big sister.
October brought our 5 year wedding anniversary and the joy of an 18 month old little girl
December brought Christmas, Santa and Mia's first experience playing in snow.
Hope 2010 brings just as many memories and experiences.
