I am 18 weeks today and feeling good. We had a really nice weekend. Friday I went to see Dr. Lei and I plan on seeing her ever week for a while. She said my circulation was not very good and so she is working on that and my stress level. I feel very calm right now and am not letting myself worry about this cyst. It is all going to be okay. I thought I felt Mamie moving around when I was laying on the table with needles stuck all in me but I am really not sure. I hope to feel her soon if not. I know she is moving around in there. She has always been kicking around in my ultra sounds. :)
I ordered her bedding on Friday and can't wait to get started on the nursery. I am hoping Karen (aka Mimi) will help me with the drawing of the tree and birds on the wall :) I haven't asked her yet but she is an amazing artist.
We have had tons of people commenting on how much they love our name. So many people know or have family with the name Mamie. I think that is so cool. I actually had a friend from Sunday school email today saying her husbands grandmothers name is Mamie. We think it is going to fit her so well.
I leave for Vegas on Sunday and I can't wait to see my photography friends and catch up. It should be an interesting week. I will try to blog while I am there.
So anyway, I am 18 weeks today and here is what baby center say's Mamie is up to this week.
Hello, Sarah!Head to rump, your baby is approximately 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, although he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.
