Baby, C, and Sleep!

What do they all have in common? 

Um, I don't really know.  But I figure I owe an update on them!

Visited the OB yesterday and everything checked out fine!  I had been a tad stressed out because I haven't yet started to feel this little one moving around.  With Bean and C, it was by 15 weeks.  The OB said this could be for a number of reasons, but so long as the heartbeat was strong, baby's fine.  And so it was. 

I'm 17 weeks and a few days or so and I've gained 2 pounds.  If you add on the weight from the cheesecake I ate yesterday, it might be 11.  Heh.

On March 16th, we have a sonogram.  Any bets on the sex of this munchkin?  And no, I'll preempt the probable question, we are not hoping for a boy because we already have two girls.  Girls are great too!  We're hoping for a healthy baby.  Don't even get me started. 

C is doing quite well despite teething in FOUR places, (two have popped through), and has unofficially chunked up to be close to 18 pounds.  Making up for lost time, it seems.

She's related to sleep since she suddenly started actually sleeping.  I think her body is FINALLY satisfied with the amount of foodage she's getting.  Thank goodness.  For several nights, she's crashed and not woken until 10 or 11 hours later.  If I could coordinate my bladder to her waking, it'd be gold.  All the same, I'm so unbelievably happy that she's starting to sleep I could dance a jig.

Ok, I did. 

That shouldn't surprise anyone. 

What's going on with you?


  1. I think I posted before that my guess was a boy. Since you were losing weight in the begining, and that you have still only gained 2 lbs. Boys take more energy to make than girls. Hence my reasoning.

  2. Boys are less hyper, thus the reason you don't feel him yet! I'm layin''s a boy. ~julie

  3. I will venture a guess that your baby is a... human baby! Woo Hoo! I am 100% sure! I win a prize, right? :o)

    The guessing is sure fun, but I was just like you - just give me a relatively healthy baby and we'll go from there. I said throughout the pregnancy "as long as it has at least nine fingers and toes, we're good." I meant it, and we've been blessed to have such a wonderful little thing!

  4. I just thought I'd comfort you with the fact that the placenta could be up front this time which pads movements. Happened to a friend. :) Keep us posted!

  5. I hear ya on the happy healthy baby! Everyone always ask me if i want a girl this go round and as much as i would love to shout, "YES YES PLEASE A GIRL", i would much prefer a healthy baby! I am glad all is well in you home!
