Ok, so I feel like my life is a whirlwind at the moment. I'm juggling a million things at work this week AND we have plans every night and all weekend days until we leave AND I still have to shop for some new maternity clothes to debut in Connecticut because I barely have any at all. We leave for vacation next Wednesday night and I just don't know how I'm going to 1. Catch up with work 2. Keep all our plans 3. Shop 4. Pack 5. Get a mani/pedi because my nails are so long it isn't even funny! It is crazy. Not to mention I am OBSESSED with the Olympic Games so from 9:00-12:00 every night I'm basically glued to the TV and have fell asleep to it every night for the last 4 nights. I love it!

So I'm very sorry I haven't posted my ultrasound story yet. I'll try and post it tomorrow, because it is really funny and I want to share it with all of you and not to mention write it out for myself. I know I'll forget the details years from now, and I want to remember it all! I also have pictures of Lucy and myself to scan. So I haven't forgotten or fallen off the face of the earth. If you want to blame anyone blame Michael Phelps!

I will say I am feeling wonderful and Lucy is kicking quite a bit now. Rob keeps sticking his and on my stomach and demanding our daughter to kick for him, but I think it might be a little while before they get that strong. Right now she feels like most describe, like popcorn popping. I love it!

I have to go continue my Olympic obsession now. Swimming is on!

“Here's a good trick: Get a job as a judge at the Olympics. Then, if some guy sets a world record, pretend that you didn't see it and go, "Okay, is everybody ready to start now?".”

It took quite a while for DH to feel kicks. When they were strong enough, she would stop as soon as he put his hand there. I hope Lucy is more cooperative!

I love the olympics too! I was silly excited when I found out I could watch it until 1 am on nbc and then switch over to some other channel and watch more. I am excited to hear about your ultra sound!

Michael Phelps is amazing. I've been glued to the TV also.

As much as the kicking becomes uncomforable at the end, I miss it! The little kicks now are great, but wait until you can lay in bed with Rob and watch little Lucy's foot roll across your stomach! The first time DH saw Miss Amelia do this, the look on his face was priceless!! Glad to hear you feel fantastic, this is the best time of the pregnancy :)
And go Phelps! I too am obsessed with him!

Congratulations! Oh Bev, you can't imagine how inspiring your blog is (or you are). My husband and I started trying this month and I read so much about how it might take a while for us to get pregnant. I'm really really anxious to know if I'm going to need help or if we'll be ok trying for a few months... Your blog is AMAZINGLY helpful and I love your writing style. IT's so easy and fun to read! I'm going to start stalking your blog from now on!
Congratulations on Lucy, she's going to be the cutest baby ever
