Tired - I find it so rude some of the things people will say. My step brothers wife asked me how much I had gained so far and I told her about 1 pound (at my 21 wk checkup I was at 0 lbs gained and this was a week later so I was adding 1 lol). Later she comes up to me and says "you know, you really look like you've gained more than 1 pound". :| :x ARE YOU SERIOUS? Who the flip says things like that?? :roll: I told her I could assure her I hadn't :roll:

As for gender guesses - i'm still feeling boy for Cindy. Possibly girl for Kasey! 8)

Our nursery is pretty much done. I'm not TOO big into the nursery decorating. We had to remodel Mia's room back while we were trying to adopt but it still needs some trim and all. It's basically done though. Maybe some more wall decor? I don't have a theme or anything.

AFM - Doing pretty good today :D I'm doing weekly belly shots now so get ready! :mrgreen: Here is today at 23 weeks

Tired - Oh girl. I just got a pic that didn't make me look overweight but i'm about 100 lbs over what my body should be! :oops: Between birth control when I was younger and then getting the PCOS my body has really went through the ringer :roll: Thank you though :D

I upload my pics and go through photobucket to post here.

It's definetly vital to have a car for cheaper gas mileage. My DH takes our old Alero to work. We have a Pacifica with 3rd row seats now. Woohoo for getting a new vehicle! :mrgreen:

We don't really have plans this weekend. Nothing big at least. Getting my 5 yr old's pictures done Sat evening and then church with friends on Sun.

I agree with tired...you don't look overweight at alllllll! You look fab.

I'm so excited, the ticker advanced a spot, now it looks like a baby and not a shrimp...wooo hoooooo....progression...love it.

I have the nuchal transulency test on 5-4...looking forward to seeing the actual baby and not a blob on ultrasound.

Kasey - GREAT pic! I LOL'd about the bra :wink: . I actually showed faster with my first DD than this one - which I found odd. I guess it's because I was about 30 lbs lighter getting preg with her lol.

Cindy - WOOHOO for doc saying you'll show earlier. I felt like it was taking sooooooo longgggg

Okay! Lot’s of catch up to do!

Tired and Jess- Wow! People are so insanely insensitive! When I was pregnant with my son (Cormick) I got a lot of people who were totally rude about the name too. Like their opinion would change anything. Why do people feel it is necessary to be like that?! There is a guy I work with who thinks it is funny to make “wide load” comments all the time when I am pregnant. He thinks he’s funny, but sometimes when you aren’t feeling super attractive, even joking is not appreciated.

Jess and Kasey- SUPER CUTE belly shots! I will post mine on this post. I took it this morning!! I’ve been taking them every few weeks since the beginning and it is super fun to see the difference from when I started! I am pretty much the same as I was with my last pregnancy although I am actually a few pounds more this time, I can’t really tell by looking… just by the feel of how tight some of my maternity pants are…. So I must be gaining it in the buttocks! :)

Kasey- Yay for another u/s! Can’t wait for the gender scan.

Cindy- I didn’t even get the option of an NT test. Montana is lame. What does it entail? I know it is mainly to rule out Downs right? My doctor only mentioned the blood test thing.

Tired- How exciting to get a new car! I am jealous! Although in the last 3 years we have traded in two cars, so I have a long while to live with the ones we have now. :)

AFM: Just tried to upload my pic off my phone while at work and tinypic.com is blocked. Grrr!!!! I will have to send one from my phone... which may take forever. I will just make a new post after this for it.
All is well here! Lots of kicking going on in there this week! Fun!!!
My Facebook is Brittnie Keilman. I warn you... I am TERRIBLE about facebook. I basically have a page that I haven't updated in 2 years. So I am not going to be very fun on there. :)
