6 Months today!

I'm officially 6 months + pregnant! Its amazing to realize how far along I suddenly am. I'm also still shocked that I'm in good health and have relatively few aches, pains, complaints, or mood swings. (I'm sure Jim is happy about this too!)

We've been feeling Baby James move around quite a bit. I'm thrilled that Jim can share in this now too, even if it is faint.

2nd Ultrasound

We had our 2nd ultrasound yesterday! We had a quick opportunity to see James moving around. The technician was very efficient and James was very cooperative so she saw what she needed to and then was done. (She was looking for James' heart.) The best news is that she said everything looked great :) I hope to post pictures this weekend or soon after. We were given a few snapshots but they are pretty fuzzy still. Too bad this was probably our LAST opportunity to see James until November!

Lots of baby movement tonight! I figured out that Baby James moves around a bit after I eat. He must have really liked that tuna casserole tonight :)

The nursery

I managed to borrow an overhead projector from my school-we're going to start tracing the jungle animals (from Zanzibar wallpaper border) to the nursery walls! And then we get to paint in the colors... Hopefully it will be simple and fool-proof. We're not artsy people but hopefully friends and family will help?!

I feel movement!

I'm finally feeling James' movements! Last week I felt the first "flutter" but in the last few days I've felt what feels like a tiny poking or scratching. My hand is constantly on my stomach, trying to feel for external signs. I want Jim to feel the baby too!
