Pregnancy update: Halfway there

We are slowly getting ready for Zoey. I have been getting daily comments about how surprisingly large my bump is considering how far along I am. These come in the form of "August?", "Are you sure it's not twins?", and when I tell them my due date I hear a lot of surprised"Wow, you've still got a ways to go".  Yes, I will be enormous by the time the fall rolls around. For now I'm just rather large... and definitely it is the first thing out of people's mouths when they see me.

 With one small exception, things are looking good with baby's development. The umbilical cord is attached marginally to the placenta but the doctors think it's going to be fine; they are just keeping an eye on it. She has 10 fingers and 10 toes, in case you were wondering.

I wasn't expecting to get to see this. I thought her head was shaped more like a dinosaur's, bumpy, and irregular, but the actual image I got was more normal looking than what I was…

Z is for Zack... the adventure continues...!

I've decided to rejoin the blogging world to share news and pictures as it relates to our growing family.

I started the ZisforZack blog to share all about our son when he was an infant and toddler. Now he's five and about to start Kindergarten in the fall!

A few weeks ago we told Zack that he was going to be a big brother. With such early gender findings these days, we were actually able to share the news at the very same time that he was going to have a little sister.

He is really excited as are we.  The due date is November 12 but of course that's going to be give or take. I'm about 16 weeks along and I'd like to say that everything has been just peachy, but pregnancy has been a bit rougher this time around.

I've been feeling okay most days but it is in the afternoons and evenings when I'm at my worst. It wasn't until the past week or so when I started having the energy to exercise again.

I'll update again after my next doctor's visit. Stay tu…
