Lilypie - Pregnancy

Tuesday, February 23, 2010


I just came up with nicknames for the babies!

For Baby A, the girl (we think), I still like Tadpole.

For Baby B, the boy, I like Turtle. Any objections?

I want to write a 19-week post tomorrow, but I had a few things I just wanted to get out there.

First, a friend of mine who was dealing with MFI just announced that she is pregnant without intervention while they were waiting for their insurance to change to pay for IVF! I'm so incredibly happy for them. She is about two months behind me, due in September, and they went through a bunch of IUIs and started the IVF classes. This will save them a lot of time, money, and heartache, and it's such great news.

Second, due to popular demand, I will probably post a belly pic. Maybe tomorrow. I have a 16-week pic and an 18-week pic, although nothing before that. I do have some pics from last year before pregnancy that might be a good comparison, but since I am an active person and I'm finding my activity severely limited these days, looking at those pics makes me a little grumpy right now. So I'll see what I can do.

Third, we're closing in on buying a house! We've found a fixer-upper on a large lot near the center of our town. It's really expensive b/c of the location and size of the lot, and it's going to need a lot of work to get it into shape. Still, if we decide to bid and we buy the house, it will be a hopefully fun ongoing project that we'll take some pride in eventually completing. And it will be nice to make a house that really reflects our tastes. Even if it takes a few years. Our realtor is supposed to let us know today if there is anything else on the market worth seeing - otherwise, wish us luck!

Back tomorrow with my 19-week update and how things are going in pregnancy.


  1. I love the nicknames. We call our little one Turtle because the weird positions she contorts herself into make her look like one.

    Congrats on 19 weeks! You're halfway there!

  2. Ooohhh CONGRATULATIONS on the house and to your friends! What a great week for you! I love the names. FUN! The belly picture might make you feel a little grumpy, but that's ok because it won't make US feel grumpy ;o) Plus we'll all "ooohhh" and "ahhhh" over you. Who doesn't love that?!

  3. I love the nicknames! Looking forward to seeing the belly pics and hearing more about the bidding on the home. Good luck!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
