baby kicks :)

It's been awhile since I've posted! I don't wanna say this pregnancy has been very un-eventful (*knock on wood*!!) since I've hit the second trimester, but it really has! Therefore, there hasn't been too many milestones to write about. Everything as far as my health and the baby's health, is going smoothly. I had my 22 week check up last week, and everything looks and sounds great. My next appointment is set for October 28th, which is when I get the lovely glucose test. However, I've already been there, done taste wise, I'm not worried. I just hope the tests come back normal!

A few weeks ago, I went on a little adventure with Katie and Jamie to pick up a doppler off of a woman from Craigslist. For a retail value of $99, I got it for $40. woo! I don't use it all the time, but its been nice to hear the little one's heartbeat here and there :) Always in the 140's. It was definitely a good investment!

The biggest and coolest thing since my last update is baby kicks :) It started as flutters, and is now full on kicks, punches and rolls. Since I've gotten over the freaking me out part, its the coolest thing! Ryan has even felt her over the past few days :) I think he really likes it & can now feel more involved. A few weeks ago whenever I'd mention the baby was kicking a lot, he'd ask if he could feel yet. Now, she's definitely strong enough to be felt on the outside! I'm pretty sure she recognizes his voice by now, because when he talks to her, she kicks even harder. So cute.

We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary last weekend :) We both had the weekend off, and instead of going out of town somewhere like we planned, we stuck around Pittsburgh and just spent the whole weekend together. It was nice! We hit up the pumpkin patch, went out for dinner one night, and even went to Babies R Us to work on our registry (lol). It was a nice, relaxing weekend and a lovely way to celebrate one year of marriage together :)

That's all I've really got for now. I promise to update more frequently, especially since we are getting closer to the end now!

Before I go, my most recent belly shot. Taken at 21 weeks. I'm due for a new one, I know!
