Goodnight Irene

has been stuck in my head as I pack. Why? Well Hurricane Irene is coming and the kids and I are bugging out to my mom's. I hope everyone in her path stays safe. Please people if they tell you to leave do it! Better to be safe then sorry.

Yesterday I had my regular OB appointment. With my last pregnancy I had Placenta Previa so because I had some barely there spotting all heck broke loose. Now last time I found out the scary way waking up with blood all over so this barely there didn't really worry me since it could have been caused by many different things.

Anyway the best part was I got to see Speck again. I asked the tech if she could see if it was a boy or girl and since Speck was moving like a jumping bean she couldn't be 100%.

So she said she was 70% sure that Speck is a ....

A Hat!

I have been knitting I have 2!!! baby sweater that need to be blocked and buttons. Buttons will not happen until gender is found out. Hopefully soon!!

I also have been knitting some small things too. (Wait until you see the booties!) I could not help my self with this hat. I saw it in adult and child so I actually got some brain cells to work together and crunched numbers to make a baby size (hopefully)

Lil devil hat

It's a Lil Devil Hat!!!!!

that I am passed 12 weeks and everything has been checked and ultra sounded I have been given the all clear. Not that I could get away with hiding it much longer
Seriously people. That's me a week ago. The more kids you have the faster you show but damn that was fast. Not many of my normal clothes fit so my outfits are interesting because really I don't want to have to buy maternity clothes for a little more then a months worth of wearing. So hopefully I can get to fall. I did buy one pair of maternity shorts but thats it for summer.

So our little Speck got it's name from this
Sorry it's a little fuzzy but this is how my OB confirmed Speck. See the arrow and the little speck it's pointing to. The tech had to put that in there so we could see what we were looking at. That is 4 ish weeks.

4 weeks later we have the gummi bear stage

Gummi bear stage

Seriously Speck looks like a gummi bear. Alll that in 4 weeks. Pretty amazing. That picture is from 5 weeks ago so Speck is even bigger now. Barring any medical reason we won't be able to see Speck until September for the 20 week ultra sound. We have heard Speck's heart beat. The little stinker was just like his siblings, being difficult to get the reading. Moving away from the nurse. It took 10 minutes to find the heart beat long enough to get a beats per minute reading. Preview of things to come?

And well if you notice the ticker on the top of the page...there is going to be a 4th. I am finally feeling "normal" My energy is back. What little morning sickness i had is gone. I do get queasy here and there but that's easily dealt with. Now if only this heat would go away I would be so happy. Fall where are you!!
