Beach-bound...

So, we had a 14 week checkup this past week, which even the nurse was perplexed about since we have to come back in two weeks for our 16 week checkup, however, it was a good appt. We were able to hear the baby's heartbeat loud and clear through the external monitor...no ultrasound this time. Baby's heartbeat is strong...and just for the record, the nurse thinks it is a boy.

I am now 15 weeks along so baby should be about the size of a softball, amazing! This week's reading was full of interesting facts, like the baby's body is now covered in little tiny hairs, it is able to swallow some of the fluid it is floating in (ew...) and it has gained enough muscle control to completely stretch out its body flat if it wants to...so interesting. I kinda wish I could just watch it through a little camera...

I seem to have popped so I am now in ALL maternity clothes...they are so comfy!! I'm loving them, plus the summer clothes are really cute! Tony and I are heading to the beach tomorrow...well, I guess today technically...with my mom and Randy and I'm all excited to wear my new maternity swimsuit. A perk of being pregnant over summer. This week should be a great time for Tony and I to just relax and take a breather from the hustle and bustle of home.

Plus, Spencer and I needed a break from each other...absence makes the heart grow fonder...I'm hoping. Either that, or he is going to become the mascot at the kennel and take up permanent residence there...

Well, I can hear the waves calling my name...or maybe that's my pillow...zzzzzz...

I hope you and Tony are having a refreshing time at the beach and are not baking your little softball :-)
