Well I am officially at the 28 week mark which just so happens to be the farthest along I have ever made it in a pregnancy. Ian was born at 28 weeks on the dot, on a Saturday morning. My 28 week mark this time around was also on a Saturday. Still no signs of pre e although I did freak myself out over it this last weekend. We got a new bed last week (its memory foam, mmmm) and its helped my sleeping and back aches a ton. Jason went back to school this past Monday and Ian seems to be fine with it being just me and him during the day again.
Here are some belly shots, click to enlarge. The first picture has Ians doll in it, its made to his exact measurments. I am guessing thats close to the size of the baby now (actually I can tell this one is bigger then he was).
4 years ago Jason and I were married. Nothing spectacular, we didnt even have a picture taken. I love him more now then I ever.
I thought Ian had hand foot and mouth disease a couple of weeks ago. Turn out that the rash spread everywhere and we never could figure out what it was. He didnt run a fever, he wasnt overly itchy, mood stayed the same as always. At any rate it he still has spots but they dont look all that bad.

Everythings fine, babys great. S/he kept kicking while Shauna was trying to get the heart beat. I still havent gained or lost a pound but I have grown 7 inches in the waist.
Blood pressure was good 112/73, babes heart beat was between 155-160 bpm. I am right on the dot as far as fundal height is concerend (26 cm). No protein or sugars are spilling, all is good. I am happy. Next appointment is September 14th.
On the other hand, Ian has hand, foot and mouth disease. Not worried about it at all, its only on his hands and feet. No fever and he seems to be acting like his normal self.
Heading to Amarillo tomorrow for my grandmothers birthday party. Jason and Ian are staying home, so it will be just me.

So as most of you all know I am pregnant, 26 weeks. I have been meaning to update here just so everyone that cared could read about me, Ian, Jason and the babe. 26 weeks later and I am finally posting a blog. Lets just say I had been busy all that time and in the last 2 weeks I have had some more time to be online.
I will start with saying that we are not finding out the sex. We had one ultrasound early on to date me since I was 1 month off with Ian. Not planning on the babe being early BUT in case it is then I will definitely need to know a round about due date. Turns out I was right all along, got pregnant between Ians seizure and me having food poisoning (February was the month from hell). So my due date is between November 17th and the 21st. Once again, no more ultrasounds for us so we wont find out the sex until s/he is born.
The pregnancy has been a breeze compared to when I was pregnant with Ian. I was sick this time around but no where as bad as before and it went away right at the second trimester. My blood pressure has been great, usually under 116/70 and we take it every couple of days. I do NOT anticipate having pre eclampsia with this one, thus far it just feels different (meaning better).
I am just happy and positive about everything. I hate having to pee every couple of hours but it goes along with the territory.
Here are some belly shots from weeks 14 to 25
