Boy oh Boy

Sounds like we will be adding another little man to our family!  I'm so excited :)
Looks like my next project ( after finishing up final touches on the basement ) Will be the boys room.
I have this really great painting my grandma painted for my dad of a ship on stormy waters that will be my inspiration for their cute little nautical room.  I will try to post pictures of the basement and room when they are done.

So I'm 20 weeks now, going on 21.  Half way!  I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone by.  I'm feeling lots of movement now from this little one which I LOVE!  That is my favorite part of pregnancy I love to feel little kicks :)  I decided against posting a picture this time because really, I look pretty much the same.  No complaints here.  The only thing that seems to get bigger is my chest. Boo.  Still can't complain I'm two for two on having great pregnancies and so far healthy babies.  We had a scare with this little one.  I had the screening for downs and trisomy 18 at my 16 week apt. and they told me based on that test I had a 75% chance that my baby would have trisomy 18.  If you don't know what that is, its awful.  Basically it causes a bunch of abnormalities in your baby to the point that they are either still born or die within the first year.  And thats if they make it to term.  Its a pretty grim diagnosis.  I took another blood test and thanks to Thanksgiving had to wait 2 weeks for my results. I was pretty much a hormonal mess not knowing what to expect.  Hoping for the best, planning for the worst.  I had to go in for my ultrasound before I got the results back.  I was terrified at what I could potentially see, and have to deal with it face to face.  Thankfully, baby looks totally normal.  In fact, he is measuring big which is great because babies with trisomy 18 are small.  Big enough they moved my due date back up to the 22nd of april instead of the 27th.  I am just grateful for a healthy baby, I don't care when he comes!
