I felt the baby move today, for sure, not gas and not a flutter. It was a definite left to right movement. I've been feeling some questionable "fluttering" feelings for about a week.

The first time I felt the movement was laying in bed, trying to go to sleep. The second time, was when I was laying down in the bath, washing my hair. The third time, I was leaning up against a patients bed, and I swear the baby kicked the side rail.

I'm really loving how great I feel, and I'm enjoying everything to do with this pregnancy. I could do without the 100 degree temperatures, but I try to stay inside as much as possible.

I'm counting down the days until we have our sonogram! In 5 days we'll know whether or not we're having a boy or a girl baby Schmidt!

Now, I just need to decide on names, for sure. I have some "likes" and a few "loves", but I haven't made up my mind 100%. Well, I should say we.. WE haven't made up our mind for sure, although I'm not sure Randy really cares, as long as its not TOO weird. Any suggestions would be appreciated! ;)

Until next time.....

16 Weeks

It's been awhile since I've posted, but tomorrow I'll be 16 weeks. I'm actually feeling really great! I'm getting some energy back and I'm not sick anymore. The only "negative" is that I'm always hungry! 

Technically the baby is about the size of an avocado, or 4 to 5 inches and 3 to 5 oz. I'm not feeling it move yet, but I do feel a fluttery feeling at times. I can definitely feel the baby when I push on my stomach, gently of course. And, I most definitely LOOK pregnant! I've gained about 11 pounds, which is fine with me. Hopefully I can manage it from here on out... I've got a long way to go!

Here is a picture a friend took of me tonight at work...

Daddy and Aniston are happy and excited. We find out what we're having on July 28th! 
I'll definitely post an update then, if not sooner!

Love, Mommy Schmidt & Baby Schmidt
