Movement! (I think)

Ok, so I've been thinking that I'm crazy ever since I felt the first little twinge... December 17th. But now I'm almost postive about the little flutters I feel. All the books say that most people don't really feel it until closer to 20 weeks, but if you're thinner (for the time being) you may feel it sooner. So here I am almost 17 weeks and I feel "something" several times a day. Mostly when I'm sitting down or driving. I was sitting at my desk just now and finally admitted it to myself thats what it is. So exciting! Another exciting thing is that we ordered or baby furniture yesterday! Penny's had free shipping through yesterday so I decided to take advantage of it. We got the crib, a corner bookcase and dresser. The picture above shows the crib, but we got it in a lighter maple color.

Christmas Pictures

Here are some of the pictures from Christmas with the Righter side. As you can see Ashlyn was the center of attention and got lots of gifts for her first Christmas. More pictures to follow when I get them off of my old camera.

What a cuddle bug!
All the Righter girls: Addie, Rachel, Milissa & Ashlyn, Taylor, Chelsea and Me.
Baby Girl is getting sooo big!
This Christmas was another busy one for us it started last Sunday at Greg & Kathy's for the Popejoy Christmas. Too bad with the ice storm and power outages Dustin and Ray weren't able to come because they (and most of the shop) had to work all day.

Christmas Eve we went to Grandma Glo's for the Weber Christmas... We are fast outgrowing her house. Then we spent the night at Mom and Dad's and opened presents with them in the morning. My big gift this year was a Kindle, an electronic book that you can download to and Dustin got the new Nikon Cool Pix.
Then we went to Ray and Sue's and had Christmas with them and Sue's family. Sue's sister and her family were even able to come up from Missouri. Then we headed to Towanda for Christmas with the Righter side.
We still have Christmas with the Lawrences yet tonight then tomorrow (Saturday) we get together with Deb.

Dr Appt

I had another appointment with Dr Austman last night. Everything still looks good, I had my blood drawn for the tests for down syndrome ect. And I should know the results by early next week. The heart rate was lower this time, between 126 & 147 when its usually about 160. I gained a pound so now I'm even with my weight at the first appt. I go back January 19th and thats when I'll make an appt for an ultrasound to find out what we're having.

We're Going to Have a Niece!!!

Jodi just called to let me know that they found out they are having a girl today!!! I was soooo surprised, I guess me and Jodi were both wrong on that one. I was just sure it was a boy in there. So now its even more exciting knowing what they're having -- and Aunt Tess will have to do a little more christmas shopping now that I know its a little girl :)

Moving Into the 2nd Trimester

Today is another milestone, I leave the 1st Trimester behind, hopefully the sickness, fatigue, ect too. I've found that I can stay up a little later at night and I'm beginning to be able to eat again. I read on the little calendar today that the baby will grow about 3 inches in the next 4 weeks. But the amazing thing is, that it is only 3 inches now. He/She will double in length in the next month!

My Handsome Little Man!

I ordered Boo a new christmas "outfit" and when I got it in the mail the other day I couldn't wait and give it to him at Christmas. I think he looks sooo handsome in his scarf, but he's not too fond of it.
