Quick Update

Today I had my follow up ultra sound and 30 week check up. After the stressful week I just had it was so nice to get some good news. The ultra sound I had at 18 weeks looked like I might have placenta previa.  I was so discouraged that I might inevitably have to have a c-section. Well after the measurements taken today this is no longer an issue!! I cant even explain how relieved I am by this. The ultra sound also showed that baby girl is growing well and is weighing 3lbs 6oz.  She is in the 40% percentile so far and is estimated to weigh 6-7lbs at birth. She is also head down which is nice that we don't have to worry about her being breach.  (or like I told Josh this evening she is locked and loaded) I cant wait to meet her!!

Third Trimester: bring it on!!

I have officially made it to the third trimester!!! This feels like such a big accomplishment. The first trimester seemed like it took forever to get through. I think it was from all of the waiting we had to do. Waiting to tell our friends and family. Waiting to find out the sex. Waiting to see if/when the morning sickness would start. I thought I was never going to make it to the second trimester. The second trimester on the other hand seemed to just fly by. I can't believe its already over actually. So I am ready to see what this third trimester has to bring. In the meantime here are a few things I've learned so far as a pregnant woman:

1. It takes a while to actually feel pregnant. I'm not sure if this goes for everyone but for some reason it took me the longest time to actually realize there was a baby inside me.

2. People are a lot nicer to you when they know your pregnant. I'm loving all of the smiles I get from strangers. I wish in general people would just smile more. So I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.

3. I've gained a lot more weight then I planned. I'm the type of person that normally has no problem managing my weight. Well that all went out the window with this pregnancy. I'm trying to convince myself that as long as the baby and I are healthy I can worry about the weight loss after the baby is born. Bring on the P90X!!

4. I'm limited a lot more then I imagined. I guess I never thought there would be so much to miss out on. Like eating/drinking certain things. Not being able to participate in activities. Mostly it was during the summer like missing out on water sports/rafting. And then this winter it will be skiing. The biggest one of all though is missing out on our Family cruise in a few weeks. I just have to keep reminding myself its all worth it!!

5. And then there's the emotional roller coaster. I thought for some reason I was going to get away without this. Wow was I wrong!! These last few weeks I feel like any little thing can get the tears flowing. At least I'm now more prepared when it happens!

Let the blogging begin.........

So with baby girl on the way I guess it's a perfect time to jump on the blogging bandwagon. Hopefully this will help to keep all of my friends and family updated during this major Fetters family milestone. Being first time parents I am sure there will be many interesting stories to come. And knowing me there will definitely be some randomness along the way!

I was wanting to share my US pic's but apparently they got packed away with the rest of my life. For those of you that don't know me and the Mr. sold our house. Finally!! We have been trying to sell that thing since 2009. The only problem is this time on the market it sold faster then we thought it would. Which means we are basically homeless. Okay not totally homeless we are lucky enough that the in-laws let us move into the basement. But like I said basically homeless. So until I get to unpack my life I guess I only have belly pics to share.
