25 weeks

I am already more than halfway through! :-) 6 months down and about 3 1/2 more to go... My belly seems to be growing more and more everyday. I cant imagine how big it's gonna be! Ava still moves ALL the time! Its such an amazing feeling. It's gotten to the point now where I can actually see her pushing on my stomach. I sat on the couch the other night and just watched my stomach moving for like 20 minutes. Its so neat. I had my doctors appointment this morning. I had to wait 2 hours before seeing Dr. Taylor! I have been pretty lucky so far, and am usually in and out of there. But she got called in to surgery today which explains the wait. it wasn't so bad I guess. I'm just thankful to have a healthy little baby inside me. I weigh 130lbs...Ava's heart rate is between 130 and 140... and I passed my tests for gestational diabetes and anemia. She said the anemia test I barely passed, so I need to make sure I am getting enough iron. But everything is going very well. :-) My next appointment isn't until Jan 2nd. I'll only have a little over 2 months then! It seems like time is slowly creeping along sometimes, and others it seems to be flying! Michael showed Elise the ultrasound pictures on the fridge and told her that was her sister. So now every time she walks by the fridge she points to it and says "That's my baby sister." She likes to rub my belly and she'll tell me "My baby sisters in there? I wanna see her" Its too cute! Today she came into the kitchen with a toy of hers and told daddy that she was giving it to her baby sister when she gets here. Michael got a picture of her touching my belly today... It turned out really cute!

The last 2 pictures of Elise are the same photo, as you can see. I just cropped the second one.

We are all really excited for Ava to finally be here!

Tell Michael that he has to take you out to eat steak a lot so you won't be anemic. LOL
