112 Days to Go!

Your pregnancy: 24 weeks
See the big picture
How your baby's growing:Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.See what your baby looks like this week. (Or see what fraternal twins look like in the womb this week.)

My baby actually weighed 1.3 lbs on October 22nd. He constantly moves, so it is pretty comforting to know he must be having a ball in there! We are desperately trying to pick a name....We atleast know we can always fall back on Jonathan Michael Eagen Junior!

How your baby's growing:
At 11 inches ([ ]the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

Our other babies update! The "canine" kind!

This Saturday Kilo and Jet had a playdate with Bigsby a black lab puppy. Our friend Casey and Micaela brought Bigsby over to play and watch football of course! Kilo and Bigsby became instant friends! They never left each other alone for a minute. Even when we'd separate the two for awhile, Bigsby in the garage with his daddy and Kilo in with me, Kilo would not lay down. He paced and whimpered because he just knew Bigsby was still at the house! It was truly love at first sight. Below are some pics.....Jet on the other hand was a bear and growled at Bigsby if he even looked at Jet, which is why he is not in any pictures.... Not sure what's up with that, but I believe with our baby he'll be the greatest protector. We've had friends baby's over before and Jet would not leave the side of the stroller or where ever the baby was so I'm interested to see that. Kilo may know no difference....He's definitely in his own world!

On a baby note, we find out the sex on Wednesday 10-22! Can't wait! I'll be certain to update the blog when I find out.

20 weeks, Halfway There!

Your pregnancy: 20 weeks
See the big picture
How your baby's growing:Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.)He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).See what your baby looks like this week. (Or see what fraternal twins look like in the womb this week.)Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. Our information is designed to give you a general idea of your baby's development.
How your life's changing:Congratulations! You've hit the halfway mark in your pregnancy. The top of your uterus is about level with your belly button, and you've likely gained around 10 pounds.

Monthly checkup!

Well I saw the Doc Monday morning. I was initially in a state of shock as the scale said I gained 9lbs in just the last month....I guess it's reality! I'm working out and eating pretty okay, but I guess it is just bound to happen for the next few months! Other than that the baby's heartbeat was down to 130 beats per minute. Last time it was 150....Normal is anywhere between 120-160. We could also hear the movements, which was pretty cool!

Everything else checked out fine. We set up our ultrasound for Oct 22 to find out what we all really want to know!!! Unfortunately that was the soonest we could do it as Jon is leaving for a work trip for 10 days on Tuesday. So by then we'll be good and ready to get the room done!

Meanwhile, Jon has been doing a great job painting the trim in baby room, our room and the office. He's painting the dark wood, white and putting up new white blinds so it looks very nice! He is so handy! Still can't upload a new pic of us.....
