I cannot believe that I am half way through my pregnancy already! Time has flown by so quickly! I am feeling great and my belly is growing along with other parts :) I have never weighed as much as I do now. At my last vist, I had gained around 6 lbs I think and the doc said I was doing well with my weight, but I think I have gained even more now haha! I got on the scales the other night and weighed 9 lbs more than I did before I got pregnant. It will be interesting to see just how big I do get...haha! Ella Jae is moving, ALOT! It is the greatest feeling and I get the same exciting feeling each time I feel her move!! I can even see her kick when I am lying down. My belly will actually move :) It is the neatest thing! Recently though, when she is moving and someone touches my belly to feel her, she stops moving..that little stinker!!! Our next visits to the doctor are Nov 4. and 13. I cannot wait to go back and she how much she has grown! My high risk doctor will release me at that point and they will also do a sonogram. And...they have the technology to do a 3d sonogram and there is no charge! I cannot wait for that! She could even have hair at that point...how precious?!
