Just getting back from visiting California to meet Brian's parents. Things went really well. They threw us a little baby shower brunch and we received our first batch of baby stuff. We got lots of wonderful gifts including a stroller/infant car seat from Brian's parents. Plus I got to see the city. It was all so very beautiful, I actually think I'm looking forward to moving. That won't happen until after the baby gets here though, so one step at a time.

Like every doctors OB appointment this one started with me peeing in a cup, followed by stepping on to the scale. unlike all my other OB appointments however, this time I hadn't lost weight but in fact had gained a whopping 10 pounds, IN ONE MONTH! I know, I know I shouldn't feel bad, I was supposed to have gained that much by now anyway, but somehow it really worries me that I've gained so much so fast.

I am really starting to show now, and really starting to worry about all the things that need to get done before baby gets here. still I feel like there is almost nothing I can do to get things moving. We're kind of in a waiting period. John and Frannie will be moving next month, so the house will be empty. That's when things will really shift into gear. Still I'm going crazy in the mean time with wanting something to do. I'm working now so that's helpful... but I don't think its going to be enough of an income to catch up on my bills and pay my portion of the rent. Plus with all these new expenses coming up I just feel so helpless and useless.

So yesterday I was feeling kind of crafty and I took the initiative to start my baby quilt. Unfortunately I got side tracked by the Idea of making a baby hat, and got nothing done on the quilting venture. The hat turned out really cute though! I'm posting a Picture of it. Its a white satin with an adorable pink bow on top.

I think we have a name! after thinking it over for a long time and considering all the pro's and con's we still really like Lily Ana. We even went so far as to tell our friend and doula of the decision (her name is Anna and that is where we got the middle name). I really like it, and Brian seemed pretty taken with it to. Of course I reserve the right to change my mind... But I think its a keeper!

Last friday we had our second ultrasound, and while the baby seemed very reluctant to show us her face, she had no problem flashing her naughty parts. The doctor says he's sure it's a girl. I secretly thought it was a girl or maybe hoped it was a girl... but I didn't want to say anything in case it was a boy, and because Brian and my family all wanted a boy. Ah well my mother is happy, and I think Brian is too. the only problem now is that with all the cute things for baby girls I will have to work extra hard to keep what little money I have in my bank account.
