A little bit of this and a little bit of that…

Hi bloggers…
My posts will be pretty sporadic this month. I have a big test on the 30th so I’ll be devoting most of my time to that 🙁

I ask that you keep me and Baby (and poor Craig – who gets to deal with a pregnant wifey who’s extra stressed) in your prayers while I go through the next month of studying and stress.

Some randomness…

I’ve signed off of Facebook for the next month – Craig has changed my password to keep me from getting on the sight – so I don’t waste time on it. So, if you’re a Facebooker, know I can’t get into Facebook…so leave me a comment instead!!

We had our 22 week appointment with the Perinatologist. Baby Girl looks great! She is showing some personality and was a little stubborn during the ultrasound. The ultrasound tech needed to get a better view of her heart but she just wouldn’t flip over no matter how much we wiggled and jiggled my belly. Baby is a lot like Craig…once she gets comfy…she really doesn’t feel like moving 🙂 My blood pressure and thyroid function are both normal – so I have so much to be thankful for and praise God for all of the good news!! Baby Girl is going to be big – on average at 22 weeks – babies are about 12 oz….Baby Hounsel is 17 oz! So, she’s over a one pound…

She has started kicking and moving. I LOVE IT! There is nothing better than feeling her squirm and kick. I love seeing Craig’s face when he can feel her kick. He is pretty convinced she’s going to get a full scholarship playing soccer…she’s already working out those quads!
Baby is like me and is a morning person. She starts to squirm and kick pretty hard around 4:30am…so I just lay there and feel her kick and move until I get up at 5:30 am….needless to say…I am tired during the day!!

Craig and I went to our first parenting class at our church. It was overwhelming but very informative. I am so glad we made the decision to take the class and use Biblical principles to raise Baby. I was proud of Craig as he asked questions 🙂

Overall – this month is focused on my test and once I am done with it – I am going to go crazy with decorating Baby’s room.


  1. Do you sing the title of this? That is my first inclination!

  2. I love that y’all can both feel her kick now! Isn’t it amazing?!?!

    I’ll keep you in my prayers over the next several weeks about your test. I know you’ll do great!

  3. Oh, and I love the week 23 pic! The belly is getting so cute!
