Many of you who have been reading this (or "following") know that I am not posting as much... well... posting anything! LOL!!

There are some various reasons;

1. New mom paranoia (I know I'm not a mom yet, but still). I am getting scared of having too much information available to God only knows who on the internet.

2. Just don't have that much to say... nothing new, or exciting.

3. Busy with the semester ending

4. This was my TTC/TTTC blog... and now that I'm pregnant... it doesn't feel 'right' anymore... like I have nothing to say (again)

5. Various comments left on the blog... have... well... left a sour taste in my mouth for allowing people I don't know, or don't know well commenting on my life and my feelings.

With all of that said, I will me moving my blog!! I will set up a new private blog that will be available for baby and family related things. I want to post personal information and baby photos for everyone to see, but only with my permission : )

(Nesties- I will need your email address to grant you permission to view the blog, but don't worry! I will post a thread when it gets going!)

I KNOW that I have been slacking in the Blogging department... sorry!

Part of it was being busy (it's now spring break) and the other part was just not wanting to post.

Here is the picture for 21-24 weeks

Watch what you say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.

We met with the specalist the other day and he says that the baby is RIGHT ON TRACK!! He said that I have a 90% chance of everything turning out OK at this point!!

We still don't know the gender, and don't want to find out.

I won tickets to The Ellen Show, for her Mother's Day celebration!! WOOT!!!

I'm feeling bigger and bigger (sorry, no belly shots yet) and have been nesting like crazy!!! (the maternal, around-the-house nesting, not on

The baby's room is empty, and waiting for daddy to paint! Crib will be here in 6 weeks. I sewed the crib bedding and a few birp cloths and a blanket.

I'm about to start making the shower invitations : )

I'm keeping busy!!

This is what I have in my belly... it's quite odd.

I have heard that you feel "flutters" or "gas-like" feelings, but not painfull... I hear you can feel "tapps" or muscle twitches... I haven't felt anything like that.

I feel goldfish swimming.

20 weeks...

Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation... baby's genitals are now fully formed!

19 weeks...

Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil and dead skin cells (yum) now coats baby's skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid. (Picture yourself after a nine-month bath, and the need for protection makes sense.) You might actually get to see the vernix at birth, especially if baby is premature.

18 weeks...

Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby's finally big enough that you'll be able to feel those movements soon.
