    WOO! Allison, which travel system is it?

    I picked out a travel system at Babies R Us, and it was affordable, but I want to shop around. It goes for under $200 on Amazon but it's always out of stock (it's the Baby Trend Expedition ELX). I REALLY like that one but if I could find any one with similar wheels (three big wheels) I'd be ok with it.

    I got the maxi cosi piazzo system-- it's fantastic! I am also going to register for a jogging stroller but this one is perfect for mall trips and walks around town with the dog.

    Had an appt and ultrasound yesterday. Didn't get to find out the sex, but it was pretty cool how we got to see the developing organs and bones... He had a fully developed spine... Which wasn't there like, 4 weeks ago. Lol. It's was awesome. My little button was also proportionate... No stubby arms and tadpole legs with a giant head. He looked like a little person, finally, and he was so beautiful. The doctor said his head was measuring a couple days bigger than how far I am, but that's a common trait in our family. Lol. Big heads. My baby is perfect already. I saw his lungs, his heart, his brain, his spine... All of it was perfect and beautiful and I want this baby more than anything. Josh was there for the first time and he held my hand and I think he was in awe, too. Just not as much as me, lol. I still so badly want somehow, for all this to work out so that my baby can have a happy family. Either way it happens... My baby will have the best no matter what.

    I find out the sex on the 13th of February. Happy Valentines Day to me! I will be 20 weeks then and I am almost 16 now.

    Barbara, I've been thinking about you recently and hoped you'd check in! I'm glad to hear things are looking up for you.

    I have my 20 week anatomy scan tomorrow, I'm not going to find out the gender, though.

    Glad to hear everything went well Barbara!

    I'm laying in bed and my cat is stretched out on my stomach. I can feel baby rolling around, kicking him. I wonder if he thinks I've installed a kitty massage machine.

    Happy for you ladies and your healthy ultrasounds :)

    Looks like I will be having another one to check on baby's position since she is being uncooperative and keeps turning sideways. lol Hopefully she figures it out soon!

    I'm 36 weeks tomorrow, starting to really feel it now - tired and blah! But hoping to hang in there for a couple more weeks and stay working until the beginning of Feb.

    Wow Jen, I can't believe you're so close!

    I have a funny story: my mom went with me to my sonogram. While we were there, a few times the tech said something like "Mom, can you turn on your side?" or "Ok Mom, that's the baby's heart!" and every time she said it I started to look at MY mom, thinking "hey I wonder what the tech is going to say to her?" and then realized she was talking to me. It was so strange.

    Soooo last night I realized most of my (at times, quite racist) family does not know I'm having a mixed race child.

    Teee Heee can't wait to surprise them with that one.

    My DH said last night, "Soon you're going to have a new name-- mom." It's obvious yet so strange at the same time.

    I'm 23 weeks today and still feeling excellent. I wish I could freeze pregnancy now for awhile because I know things are going to start getting uncomfortable. I had to break down and new bras and I've gone up one cup size AND one band size!

    I look back at my 9 week pic and I can't believe I've grown so much and yet I can't quite remember what it's like to see my toes when I'm standing up...

    I'm starting to show, but I just look fat. Lol. The growing baby belly is just pushing the layer of fat I had forward... Making it look like a bigger hunk of fat. Lol!
