Or as Matt likes to say, what happens when you're having Spider-Man's baby...
So I wore this one for work and ended up stuffing the spider a little bit, with my maternity shirts you can tell I'm showing but with the black spider it was a little harder to tell, I'll post more pictures in different clothes soon. Oh and for the party we're going to tonight Matt and I are going as hitchhikers (from Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy) that's right the most comfortable costume ever--pjs, a bathrobe and a towel.
Well, now we can say it for sure.........we're having a girl. At my last appointment the midwife said that everything looks just like it should and that the ultrasounds from last week were textbook (in the good way, not the so rare you only see them in textbooks or on House way). I also had another ultrasound and this time the baby was a little less tightly scrunched so we're sure she's not just a shy boy. We're still working on names. I guess I'm really starting to show now...We went to Park City for a very nice dinner to celebrate and spend my "working well under pressure" bonus I received at work (it's been a crazy few weeks for the whole company and a few of us were generously rewarded for our hard work). While there we window shopped for a while, but couldn't pass up a beautiful pair of Minnetonka-brand shoes for Matt (they're very similar to their moccasins--and super comfy--but look like nice shoes) that we got at a very good price. While checking out we experienced the first time a stranger (the cashier) dared to ask, "Is that a little baby belly I see?"
The baby wasn't very cooperative, but we've been given and 80% chance it's a girl....I know strange for the Stevens family hu? Here's some pictures of our baby--I tried to get some of the video footage uploaded but I'm still not sure how to rip just some of the DVD (the whole thing is like 13 min).
Well the first week of October we had out first big fall rainstorm, so of course being Utah, the weather has changed drastically in a matter of days and likely will again in a few days. We had our first snow this weekend and there was ice on the car this morning. Matt keeps reminding me at least I'm not pregnant during the hot summer months, instead I get to enjoy the Fall when it's warm/freezing/nice/very cold/warm...well you get the idea. We have the ultrasound this week and will let you know if we're having a boy or a girl (assuming the baby lets us see).
The company Matt works for has changed their name to i365 and is making some changes. These seem to be for the better...his base pay was raised (so were his quotas-- a little scary, but I'm sure he'll do just fine). They're also going to be able to sell things from other companies that they partner with/are owned by Seagate (as i356 is) --which has the potential of bigger sales.
The pregnancy is going okay, still on Zofran, but very grateful it exists. The baby seems to be doing fine judging from the visits with the midwife (of course I'm still super paranoid, but it seems like everything is going perfectly). We have an ultrasound on the 17th and if the baby cooperates, we'll know if it's a boy or a girl--and then I can start shopping :)
I am the mom of 5 year-old and an almost 2 year-old. I teach decorating/baking classes (LiveLoveBakeNM.com) so I get to have them with me pretty much all the time :) I'm working on improving myself everyday.
